Holistic Massage School Offers Simple Solutions for Getting the Exercise You Need!

“The American Heart Association recommends that adults get a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity per day”, says Paula Curtiss, Founding Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HHSHH).  “Regular physical activity is one of the simplest ways to effectively improve your health, mood, energy level, sex-life, and over-all sense of well-being.  With so many holistic health benefits, it’s alarming that a recent survey by the American Heart Association revealed that 80% of Americans still do not make regular exercise a habit.   While there may be many reasons for this alarming statistic, today I’m offering one simple solution….Start Walking! ” she added.   


Studies show that the benefits of a 30 minute walk 7 days a week is enough to make several substantial health changes.  Below is a list of those benefits as reported by The American Heart Association:

  • lower one’s risk of coronary heart disease
  • diminishes the chances of developing Osteoporosiswalking
  • positively impacts blood sugar & blood pressure levels
  • lowers the risk of Colon & Breast Cancer
  • helps one maintain a healthy body weight
  • enhances one’s mental outlook /emotional well being
  • lessens the risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Still unsure of how you can get your 30 minutes of walking in each day?  Then, consider these opportunities:
