Today's active seniors can expect to live longer, healthier lives thanks to advances in medical science, nutrition and the desire to remain fit. This group ranges from those who want to become more active, to those who want to remain high performers. Massage therapy can play a key and satisfying role in helping these clients achieve their health and fitness goals. While objective, scientifically based research on how massage therapy plays into the senior fitness mix remains hard to find. This course looks at what therapists can do now, evaluating where the client is in his or her program and health issues the client may have.
This course describes massage methods that will help ensure that older clients remain in good shape for years to come. It addresses concerns and needs of seniors with health issues, inactive seniors, active seniors and competitive seniors or seniors who are professional athletes. When you have completed this course you will be able to:
Relate the benefits of regular massage therapy to the four types of seniors described in this course
Identify when athletes improve and adapt their fitness and physical abilities
Explain how regular massage therapy addresses the effects of routine movements and scar tissue buildup on biomechanics, muscle range and flexibility
List six benefits and four goals of regular massage therapy
Describe the benefits or requirements of the massage therapy techniques (and one method—Myoflexxion) for active seniors as described in this course
