8 fantastic health benefits of massage therapy for seniors
Seniors and massage therapy
The majority of massage clients at spas and health centers are between the ages of 20 and 40. It’s a mystery why, after a certain age, we stop allowing ourselves to enjoy a little R&R.
Now, imagine being in your 70s or 80s: you notice your body is more fragile, you get bruised more easily and you’re more vulnerable to a fracture. Add to that your sense of modesty and restraint, not to mention living on a fixed income. Would a massage be your priority? Not likely!
These are some of the challenges older people face that prevents them from treating themselves to a well-deserved massage. It’s a shame because no one could reap the physical and emotional benefits quite as much as seniors.
