Massage Offers More Benefits Than Just Relaxation: KGO-TV Talks with NHI’s Tim Veitzer and Others about the Medical Effects of Massage Therapy
On 12/7/10, KGO-TV featured interviews with National Holistic Institute staff and many shots of the school’s Emeryville campus for Health Reporter Carolyn Johnson’s interesting piece about the medical benefits of massage therapy which aired on “ABC 7 News” throughout Northern California. Johnson’s story explains how a recently-released study from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles demonstrates the clear health benefits of a single massage therapy session. The story describes the positive biologic effects of massage therapy including an increase in the number of white blood cells to a decrease in the stress hormone cortisol.
As the medical benefits of massage therapy become clear, many NHI students are looking to take their medical massage therapy skills to the next level in the school’s newly-created Advanced 400 Hour Neuromuscular Massage Therapist Program.
