Senior Massage

Massage can be very effective for maintaining and improving overall health as people age. Massage for the elderly uses gentle and light Swedish techniques and may include passive stretching. A light oil or lotion may be applied, allowing the muscles to be worked on without causing excessive friction to the skin. Benefits of massage for the elderly include: enhancing blood circulation, improving balance and flexibility, combating depression, improving posture, reducing the pain of arthritis, increasing joint mobility, and encouraging overall well-being. Massage therapy can also help to relieve anxiety and provide comfort, especially to touch-deprived elderly clients.
