Just because you - or your family member - are more advanced in years, or maybe not as mobile anymore, doesn't mean that you shouldn't have a massage!
Quite the opposite: growing older, our bodies change: joints are not as mobile as they used to be, breathing is more difficult, legs get swollen and hands feel cold...
Life can become very stressful - physically and emotionally:
You might become the main caregiver for a loved one, or might need more care yourself.
You might move house. You might have lost friends or loved ones...
Massage can be a wonderful tool to meet your physical and emotional needs.
The sad reality is that the older we get, the less intentional touch we get...
Massage is touch that is comfortable, touch that comforts.
