Seniors Benefit From Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers numerous benefits for the entire body, especially as it is aging. Massage eases joint and muscle pain and helps reduce increased levels of stress that often occurs with age.

Geriatric massage therapy is helpful for maintaining and improving overall health and wellness for the aging population.
Addressing the specific needs of the senior population; a geriatric massage therapist uses gentle and a light application of massage techniques and passive stretching to enhance blood circulation, combat depression, improve balance and flexibility, reduce the pain of arthritis, increase joint mobility, improve posture, and encourage overall well-being.

Some additional benefits massage offers seniors include:
Relief from muscular tension, soreness, and fatigue
Improved concentration, balance, posture, and motor skills
Restored range of motion
Reduced stress, anxiety, and pain through increased relaxation
Reduced muscle inflammation after physical activity.

As a geriatric massage therapist, you need liability insurance for massage therapy that is entirely comprehensive. And the American Massage Council (AMC) offers the most affordable and reliable professional liability insurance for massage therapy coverage that checks all of your desired boxes.

Having professional liability insurance for massage therapy with AMC will offer peace of mind that you will be protected in your day-to-day massage practice so you can do what you love, helping others.

At the American Massage Council, we believe the more we help you, the more you will help others.
