Overland Park Senior Massage
Touch is one of the most profound means of expressing compassion. Often living alone and no longer driving, seniors can miss out on the nurturing touch that the rest of us take for granted with hugs, handshakes, pedicures/manicures, and just simply being around other people. Without basic touch, many seniors are prone to depression that can lead to rapidly deteriorating health. Therapeutic massage is more effective with seniors than any other group of people for precisely this reason. With regular massage therapy sessions, many seniors see a vast improvement in their overall health and happiness.
Treating the Effects of Aging
Aging can be debilitating on not just our physical health, but on our emotional health, as well. Many older adults may experience the following issues as they age:
- Chronic pain
- Less mobility
- Trouble sleeping
- Poor circulation
- Dry skin
Massage therapy effectively addresses and improves many of the above complaints, while providing the emotional health benefits of basic touch. Once most seniors begin regular massage sessions (whether weekly or otherwise) they never stop because of how beneficial it is to their health!
