Active Seniors

As modern medicine continuously finds ways to extend our longevity, smart seniors are finding ways to stay active and healthy. After all, what’s the point of a longer life if you can’t enjoy it? Fitness routines that are appropriate to your age and physical condition can go a long way toward improving your overall health and well-being. Massage can restore flexibility and range of motion, which make it easier to get and stay in shape. Queens and Nassau County seniors can take advantage of a wide range of parks, beaches and trails for walking, running, bicycle riding and many other recreational activities. But what happens when chronic pain interferes with your ability to do the things you love?

Massage therapy performed by a licensed professional like Kathleen Vincent, LMT can provide relief for chronic pain and stiffness, allowing you to do more of the things that will keep you happy, healthy and active. In essence, the secret to remaining active well into your senior years may lie in the hands of your massage therapist.

Relief from your discomfort doesn’t have to come from a prescription pad or a surgeon’s table. Many active seniors have found relief through gentle massage techniques that reduce pain and increase circulation for these conditions and more:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Limited shoulder mobility
  • Tennis elbow
  • Painful knees
  • Swollen ankles

Massage therapy can also help to speed post-surgical recovery. If you think you may want to take advantage of professional massage therapy to ease your discomfort and get or keep you active, call for an appointment with Kathleen Vincent, LMT today.
