COMMON HEALTH PROBLEMS
How a Good Therapeutic Massage Can Help
Over the past century, rapid increase in life expectancy has made the prospect of living to be a 100 years old a reality for more and more people. Have you ever considered being a 100 years old? You will probably conclude that a long life is desirable only if it is a good life. Meaning having good health, meaningful relationships, independence and a respected place in society.
Freedom from disease and disability along with active engagement in life are attributes of successful aging. Another important step of successful aging is the prevention of disease and disability.
Instead of dealing with health issues after they come up, we should focus on preventing them. A great way to focus on prevention is to set reasonable goals and to work on them by participating in meaningful activities. Anything is possible if you work on it!
Here are some common medical disorders, which typically come with aging. Massage therapy paired with a healthy lifestyle is the critical element in “happy” aging.
Maintain activities for as long as possible once you feel you are unable to continue, and find a substitute that is still active that you find enjoyable. For instance maybe you can no longer run, try hiking or dancing instead. Age is just a number; your real age is in your mind and depends of your decisions!
Good luck to all of you.
