Description: A massage positively affects blood pressure, pulse, and skin temperature. It increases lymph flow rate by 7-9 times. Massages are now available at South Iredell Senior Center. The next sessions will be held on May 14 & 15. Appointments are required. Massage therapy is particularly valuable for the problems associated with growing older. The benefits of massage encompass conditions that may arise with age, such as: muscular stiffness, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and respiratory problems such as asthma and emphysema. Massage encourages circulation, decreases muscular stiffness, and helps to decrease inflammation that may rest in the joints. Careful massage can help provide the elderly with symptomatic relief and enable seniors to extend the vitality in their lives. Senior rate is $20 for 30 minutes; $40 for 60 minutes. Call 704-662-3337 for an appointment.
