Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics can benefit from the relaxing effects of professional massage therapy. Everyone knows that living with diabetes involves a certain amount of stress. Because the human body is designed to respond to stress with a fight-or-flight response, stress tends to raise blood sugar levels. Diabetes has numerous sub-symptoms. The ones we will discuss are high blood pressure (how it effects on our blood vessels), high cholesterol, and neuropathy (extreme nerve pain mainly in the feet and legs). We will also learn how to help these symptoms with several modalities – massage, reflexology, and chakra balancing to name a few. Many diabetics have poor circulation, and various types of massage therapy are known for promoting increased circulation. Relaxation massage and reflexology are particularly effective in that area. Regular massage helps move blood through congested areas of the body, flushing lactic acid from your muscles and enabling more oxygen-rich blood to flow in. As a massage therapist we have to understand diabetes and be aware of the side effects. We will need to consider taking precautions to avoid hypoglycemia during a massage – because deeply restful relaxation might make symptoms of an insulin reaction easier to overlook. Learn how you can help your client control it (with glucose tablets, a soft drink, or some other preferred method). Please bring sheets, lotion, and pen/pencil.
