The effect of muscle tension on blood pressure.

Q: I hold a lot of tension in my diaphragm, especially at night when I am under stress. Would this muscle tension, as it is affected by breathing, be a factor in my blood pressure?

A: Stress has been associated with high blood pressure.  Reducing stress is a lifestyle change recommended for blood pressure control.  Since your stress levels affect your breathing, you might want to try the Resperate.  This device uses sophisticated technology to guide  your breathing into a therapeutic range.  Perhaps regular use will break the cycle of storing stress in your diaphragm.  Regular use will also help with your blood pressure control.
