Did you know that seniors benefit from a gentle massage?

We can all agree that a massage feels great every once in a while. However, were you aware that a routine massage has many health benefits, especially for our sweet seniors?

  • Decrease anxiety and stress
  • Lessons the symptoms of depression
  • stabilizes blood pressure
  • increase circulation
  • improves joint mobility
  • Decreased imflammation
  • Increases sense of well being
  • May lessen dependence of pain medication
  • Improves the flow of lymphatic fluid
  • Improves digestion
  • Provides much needed touch and nurturing for patients with Alzheimers and Dementia
