Benefits of Massage for Older People
Several studies have investigated whether massage therapy can relieve some of the symptoms of two common conditions associated with aging: osteoarthritis and Alzheimer’s disease. According to this research massage can speed up healing from injury and illness, stimulate bowels, deepen breathing, improve length and quality of sleep and relaxation, and relieve anxiety and depression. Patients who are unable to communicate in conventional ways are still able to direct the therapist’s hand to painful areas. Therapist’s person-centered approach provides patients with the opportunity to express their needs, making them feeling safe, loved and cared for.
