5 Benefits of Reflexology for the Elderly
1. Improved Balance
Falls are a major concern for the elderly and their caregivers. Foot Reflexology helps stimulate the nerve endings on the feet and the flow of lymph fluid and blood to the lower extremities. As a result, Reflexology may help Balance issues in the elderly.
2. Reduced Stress
As one ages, stresses can take a heavy toll. Reflexology is considered to be one of the best stress relievers. An empathetic and caring Reflexologist can really help the senior to feel better and helps them communicate in a friendly and social environment.
3. Better Circulation
Reflexology applied to the feet and elsewhere is known to promote better circulation especially when seniors have mobility issues.
4. Increased Range of Motion
Reflexology can aid the elderly in loosening up those tired muscles which may help any range of motion issues.
5. Increased Energy
Stimulating reflex points in an elderly person’s body is a great way to increase his or her energy. The key to a good life is mobility, and having energy gives people motivation to keep moving. It’s great for the individual’s emotional wellbeing as well.
