I asked my father what are the best three things I can do for you. Firstly he said, “I am all right and do not need anything”. On perpetual insisting, he asked for –
- A light music arrangement in his room
- At least one meal together with the entire family and
- Most importantly the massage therapy for him.
His answer made me realize the need of the elders. They need companionship. They want to see their family around. They need stress busters, which is vital for their positive health.
When we age, our muscles and body turn old, our immune system weakens. We enter into the state of chronic pain. Normally we treat this chronic pain with drug therapy, which further harms the already deteriorating immune system.
If not the best, but one of the best ways to gain the body strength and relieve pain is the massage therapy. A nice pain relief body massage for elderly is highly relaxing and has great advantages. A good elderly massage has shown to facilitate relaxation and communication. It can greatly assist in arthritic pain management.
Massage for elderly citizens may help to increase their range of motion. It also promotes natural joint lubrication, which is extremely important for arthritis sufferers. It assists to increase strength and muscle coordination and boosts natural energy levels and mental awareness. It can also greatly improve posture by reducing muscle tension. This has the added benefit of assisting seniors with a higher quality of rest and helps them to sleep deeper and longer which can have a significant effect on their general health and well being. Overall it can also have a profound calming effect which in turn helps them to deal with medical interventions they may need to experience in dealing with various conditions.
