As you get older, problems you don’t actively think about, actively make themselves felt whilst getting out of bed, walking up and down the stairs, playing with the dog or your grandchildren, or just dancing to enjoy yourself. These shouldn’t become problems, but as age and chronic health conditions overpower your system, they do.
Even if you are the kind of person who really takes care of their health (and let’s face it, many of us don’t!), you probably do not pay too much attention to your joints. But the complex machinery of your body depends on these tiny cogs to move, bend, and turn. We wouldn’t be able to do the million things needed to get through each day without healthy joints.
Joint pain is a common enough problem which can turn simple everyday tasks into a challenge and even disrupt a person’s normal life. Your knees are especially vulnerable and take the weight of your entire body.
A fabulous way to take care of your body is to apply oil to it. The gentle application of oil reduces stress levels in most people. You could also consider massage, which involves the rubbing and manipulating of muscles, tendons, skin and ligaments, and a full body massage can relieve pain and stiffness in the body. A full body massage helps remove dead skin cells over your entire body for improved skin tone. The stimulated blood flow benefits the appearance and health of your skin. Massage can also encourage tissue regeneration, which may help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, and it may help control your blood pressure. Muscles that are tired, overused or otherwise sore are able to relax and soften through both oil application and massage, which increases circulation by assisting oxygen and nutrients to reach tissues and organs.
