For 55 and Better

Massage Therapy for Healthy Aging

Vitality at Any Age

Therapeutic massage can help you feel great at any age. A natural part of the aging process is decreased muscle strength and bone mass, reduced energy levels, slower reaction time, less tissue elasticity, thin, dry skin, and a decrease in the senses and immune system. Did you know that chronic stress and inactivity accelerate the aging process?


The challenge of vital longevity is to continue to lead a healthy, active, quality life, while doing what we can to limit the harmful effects of the aging process.
