Relieving tight muscles with massage is an effective way to decrease pain and discomfort acquired by everyone on a daily basis.
Then why is it that many people choose to overlook massage therapy as an option for relief with regular massage as a good body maintenance? Some of the answers may be not knowing exactly what massage entails and trusting someone with your body.
If you have never had a massage, it is understandable how it you may have some of these concerns you may have with notions of modesty, knowledge about what massage entails and body image. Let’s ease those concerns so that you can employ the many benefits of massage therapy into your own life.
We can start with modesty and keeping within the bounds of proper conduct. Your therapist will allow you privacy to disrobe by leaving the room. You may keep your underwear on or not it is entirely up to you as you need to feel comfortable. Some people even wear a bathing suit or short shorts! There is no need to worry as you are fully covered by a sheet the entire time of the massage. “Draping” a technique used by using the sheet to maintain your sense of security and create a modest boundary between therapist and client. You can relax knowing that your safety and modesty are highly protected by the massage therapist. Knowledge of what the massage entails will help in maximizing your massage experience. As a first time client, your therapist will help by asking questions and allowing you to ask questions, letting you know where to put your things, what the massage will entail, and explain anything like breathing and relaxing during the massage.
Body image is another thing that seems to stop people from enjoying the benefits of a good massage experience. Massage is for everybody!! Every shape and every size. Professional massage therapists are aware of the many different body forms and functions, and work professionally to make you feel comfortable in receiving a massage.
So I encourage every one of you to experience a massage and get all those benefits a massage has for you!!

Massage For Seniors
Just about anyone can reap the benefits of massage, and the elderly are no different. As a matter of fact, the elderly can certainly benefit a lot from the services of a professional massage therapist. This specific type of massage therapy is called geriatric massage.
Massage therapy can help seniors to get in touch with the vital sensations of their bodies and to feel nurtured and cared for. It accelerates the removal of normal cellular wastes that can cause fatigue and malaise which can get backed up from a person being inactive or sedentary.
For seniors, especially those who may live alone or who are fairly inactive, regular massage is extremely beneficial. As we age, many of our systems slow down. Often seniors suffer from dehydration which further slows the transmission of fluids and vital nutrients to all cells of the body. Many conditions can bothersome , like arthritis, achy joints, gastrointestinal disorders, balance issues, and even diminished vision and hearing. Massage therapy is used as treatment for many chronic pain issues.
All too often our senior citizens become confined and seldom get to enjoy the fresh outdoors, or interact with people of all ages, or keep themselves busy with hobbies or activities. Massage therapy is just one way to assist seniors to begin to get moving again, which in fact they do as their health improves with the many benefits massage therapy provides.
Massage therapy is one path of treatment for patients with Alzheimer's disease. Although there is no known cure for the disease, many Alzheimer's patients receive massage therapy to help with relaxation. The direct contact of massage therapy provides those with Alzheimer's disease a way to relax, which reduces the anxiety associated with the disease.
It is important we consider the benefits of the physical contact with massage therapy for the elderly, especially for those who are residents in nursing homes or being treated in the hospital. Geriatric Massage Therapy allows seniors to enjoy some physical human contact. Touch is a very important part of staying healthy….
