One thing is certain about life and that is that as we grow physically older we develop certain conditions that may affect our mind and body. These ailments, in turn, can also affect the ways in which we view our futures and sense of well-being. Massage therapy is particularly valuable for the problems associated with growing older. The benefits of massage encompass conditions that may arise with age, such as muscular stiffness, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and respiratory problems such as asthma and emphysema. Massage encourages circulation, decreases muscular stiffness, and helps to decrease inflammation that may rest in the joints.
