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.

Reflexology is particularly valuable for the problems associated with growing older.

The benefits of reflexology encompass conditions that may arise with age, such as muscular stiffness, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and respiratory problems such as asthma and emphysema.

Reflexology encourages circulation, whole body balancing, and helps to decrease inflammation or oedema, digestive system can be gently stimulated and brings a sense of peace and relaxation, canalso help with anxiety and loneliness. Careful reflexology can help provide the elderly with symptomatic relief and enable seniors to extend the vitality in their lives.

Working with the elderly can be a wonderful experience for both clinet and therapist alike. For many elderly people it may be the only human touch they experience.
