The Benefits of Massage for People with Type 2 Diabetes

14 May Posted by in Blog, Massage | 3 comments

The number of people who suffer from type 2 diabetes in this country is on the rise.  People of all ages can suffer from this ailment.  The most common treatment for people who are diagnosed with diabetes is prescription medication.  Many people with diabetes do not realize that holistic methods such as massage can also help.

Massage can help people with diabetes to improve their circulation.  Increased circulation helps the transportation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.  This can improve the cells’ insulin uptake which is a great benefit for people with diabetes.    Another great benefit of massage is relaxation.  Often, people can underestimate the healing effects that relaxation has on the body.  People with diabetes have a very stressful life.  They often need to monitor and self-medicate on a regular basis.  They also need to watch everything that they eat.  Massage has the ability to release endorphins, calm the nervous system and reduce stress hormones.  This is important especially for people with diabetes.  Many people with diabetes suffer from a thickening of connective tissue because of their increased blood sugar.  Massage can help to increase mobility and tissue elasticity that will greatly help clients with diabetes.

    Good benefits of massage for diabetic people.


    Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller
    portion sizes – morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner.
    In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to
    keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. Expect to lose all that extra flabbiness as you melt off all your unwanted fat.
