There are many  benefits of geriatric massage therapy for a senior citizen. The most immediate benefit is decreasing the stiffness of the body and reducing inflammation.  Like all massages, this one too helps with improving blood circulation and posture. A geriatric massage is an effective preventive therapy.  For those citizens who suffer from age-related ailments like arthritis, diabetes or Parkinson, massage can improve the circulation of lymphatic fluid, providing some relief from these problems.  The massage also helps senior citizens with physical and emotional problems connect with other people. This helps them fight feelings of isolation, restlessness, and uselessness that many of the elderly have.

A key component of Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, stress, and other chronic complaints of chronic disease.  Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance. Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. Sometimes heat, pressure, or mild electrical current is used along with needles.

The Community Pain & Stress Center at Mercy Hospital offers acupuncture for only $25 a treatment, no appointment or referral necessary.  Located on in 6th floor.  Average treatment time is 5 – 20 minutes, in a community style atmosphere.  For more information call Mariah Mulcahy 312.567.2078
