Geriatric Massage

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard the phrase, “It’s tough getting old!”  One doesn’t have to ponder too deeply to realize that we all handle life’s changes differently and have different responses in how to deal with aging.  A recent study showed that everyone ages at different rates.  Whether it’s due to genetic or environmental factors is debatable.

The patients that I have the pleasure of treating in their twilight years often have the most interesting stories that are personal but also speak volumes about their health and how they got to where they are today. Massage can help aid circulation and muscle function as we age. Staying active while we’re younger certainly reflects the state of our bodies as we age.  How can we help make the transition through our lifetime a smooth one and add longevity? Easy!  Keep your body moving and get regular massage care!
