Benefits of Massage Therapy for Seniors
Geriatric Massage is a form of massage specifically designed to meet the needs of the elderly, and involves the use of the hands to manipulate soft tissues of the body to improve blood circulation, relieve pain and increase range of motion.
Massage therapy addresses the psychological and physiological aspects of aging and its associated ailments. The therapy results in an improvement in range of motion, posture, body awareness, and muscle tone, and provides a social outlet and caring touch for lonely or isolated seniors which can very often relieve anxiety and depression.
Massage therapy can also accommodate those recovering from surgery, or who have accumulated a lifetime of injuries. Senior Citizens today face a wide variety of “stressors”, and an hour of caring touch and conversation can relieve the stress and provide emotional/ mental support that can help them live a much fuller life with dignity and confidence.
The Answer is Self Endearment Healing Touch
Self Endearment Healing Touch therapists are all licensed and trained specifically in gentle, therapeutic massage for the senior population- massage that requires a little extra tender loving care, cognizance of health issues and the client’s mobility, and techniques designed for aging skin and muscles. They know everything from the proper touch to the most comfortable position…as well as being trained in the physiological, psychological and sociological aspects of aging.
Massage Therapy is valuable for the aches and pains associated with growing older, decreasing muscular stiffness, and inflammation of joints, and enhancing digestive and respiratory function, alertness, sensation and circulation. It is also helpful for those with arthritis, stroke, diabetes, Parkinson’s, tendonitis, bursitis, asthma and emphysema.
Massage therapy can reduce pain, improve sleep, lower blood pressure, decrease breathing rate, improve immune function, increase appetite, speed healing, and can even soothe an irritated/ aggressive Alzheimer’s patient.
Regular massage can lower anxiety and relieve depression and can alleviate “touch hunger”- the simple pleasure of the human touch and companionship can be priceless for isolated or lonely seniors, and benefits the emotional well-being of a population at greater risk to suffer from depression.
Overall massage can maintain health, and improve quality of life and self esteem!
