Massage for later life
Massage is an excellent way of preventing and relieving many of the common complaints experienced by older people. It can relieve aches and pains, arthritis and rheumatism. Anxiety, depression , heart problems, poor digestion and elimination, lack of energy and a whole host of other problems, massage enables us to live life to the fullest.
When working on older people it is vital that the room is warm since many of them feel the cold very easily. They may even wish to keep their clothes on. Try to be sensitive to the needs of the individual.
The areas which are most accessible are the hands and feet. Older people derive great benefit from having these areas massaged. Arthritis is usually a problem and pain can be considerably relieved by the use of massage. A treatment of the hands or feet is an excellent introduction to massage for the elderly. The neck, shoulders, back and knees are also areas that are prone to stiffness and respond well to treatment.
Older people will find treatment on a massage couch quite acceptable. You need to be very adaptable and roll garments up and to sometimes work through the clothes. It’s well worth the effort – the elderly adore massage.
