As our bodies get older, the challenges of staying healthy tend to increase. We don’t heal or move as quickly and our flexibility and circulation aren’t as automatic as it used to be. On the upside of those problems, we all are a bit wiser about how to deal with the stresses of life and have had plenty of time to figure out our bodies. We know that when that when a specific pain arises, just how to arch, stretch or manipulate ourselves into being comfortable.
Not paying attention to the cues our bodies are giving us, can at times, be detrimental in the long term. Allowing stress to impose its will on our minds, will without a doubt, eventually take a physical toll. So, how should we respond in the healthiest way possible? Here are a few tips.
Getting a regular massage:
Getting a massage in Folsom, CA is one of the best ways to reduce stress and promote increased blood circulation. Just the soles of your feet and the palms of your hands contain more than thirty pressure points. Blood circulation is one of the most important parts of your bodies overall function. Keeping good circulation to all of the extremities is imperative to staying flexible and energetic. Growing trends of the aging population have turned to massage because of its ability to promote relaxation, stability and slow the effects of dementia, high-blood pressure and osteoarthritis.
“The aging of both the silent and boomer generations call for an increased focus on improving and prolonging quality of life in this population,” said Nancy M. Porambo, President of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). “While integrating massage therapy into a health and wellness plan is useful for all ages, it holds particular value in the growing elder population.”
It’s easy to assume that if the benefits of massage are playing a key role in treating serious health issues of an aging population, it’s also got to be creating a positive impact on the younger population. Massage, coupled with regular exercise and healthy eating can really stave off a multitude of health issues. Even a ten-minute massage following a workout will increase your recovery time and promote flexibility and blood flow. Hoshall’s Spa and nail salon in Folsom, CA is a great place to start for all of your health and beauty needs.
