As more and more baby boomers are hitting retirement age, it’s time to start thinking about keeping your body in tune and in good shape throughout your older years. Geriatric massage can have a number of benefits, whether you need to relieve pain or just want to increase overall physical health.
Massage therapy can help relieve symptoms of a number of age-related diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, or strokes. Geriatric massage often involves shorter sessions with gentler movements, and can help stimulate blood circulation and reduce pain as well as helping to improve range of motion.
Geriatric massage has many benefits:
- Enhancement in quality of sleep
- Relief from depression or anxiety
- Lessening headache pain
- Hastening healing from injury and illness
- Partial restoration of range of motion
- Mental and physical relaxation
- Increasing lymphatic flow, releasing toxins from the body
