  • What Are Benefits Of Massage Therapy For Seniors’ Symptoms?

    Posted on Friday, September 9th, 2016

    As the world exhibits population aging, Canadians’ expanded life spans may impact quality of life as they experience injuries and symptoms of physical and mental disorders. Seniors are facing physical or psychological symptoms influencing functional capacity and end-of-life palliative care. By studying the literature, I propose a comforting solution is provided by massage as a rehabilitative, restorative, supportive and palliative modality. Massage is often provided by a variety of health care professionals, usually trained massage therapists though nurses, physio and occupational therapists sometimes offer touch therapy as a component of care. Massage can be taught to patients as a method of self-care, or to caregivers for optimal wellness. By incorporating massage therapy into senior citizens’ lifestyles, symptoms including pain, anxiety and depression can be managed to improve health and wellness throughout life. There is a growing body of scientific evidence which enforces that giving and receiving massage improves, maintains or decreases loss of function and increases health. This essay outlines some of the benefits around the modality of touch and its applications for elderly patients today in Canada.
