Massage for the Elderly, 136 Vaughan Road, West Harrow, Middlesex HA1 4ED, Friday, 30. October 2020

One thing is certain about life and that is that as we grow physically older we develop certain conditions that may affect our mind and body. These ailments, in turn, can also affect the ways in which we view our futures and sense of well-being. Massage therapy is particularly valuable for the problems associated with growing older.



The benefits of massage encompass conditions that may arise with age, such as muscular stiffness, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and respiratory problems such as asthma and emphysema.



Massage encourages circulation, decreases muscular stiffness, and helps to decrease inflammation that may rest in the joints. Careful massage can help provide the elderly with symptomatic relief and enable seniors to extend the vitality in their lives.



Working with the elderly can be a wonderful experience for both client and therapist alike. For many elderly people it may be the only human touch they experience.
