How Does Massage Help?
Because older adults' skin is more delicate, massage therapists use gentle strokes and stretching. Our massage therapy program in west Central Minnesota is designed to help you and your loved ones relax.
- Relax stiff muscles
- Reduce pain and swelling
- Improve circulation, flexibility and muscle tone
- Improve sleep
- Lower blood pressure
- Decrease stress, fear, restlessness and anxiety
Message has an added benefit. As we age, we often have less physical contact with others. This can lead to feelings of isolation. Massage offsets this by releasing "feel good" hormones like serotonin and endorphins.
