In 2010, licensed massage therapist Hillery Woods founded Roots & Wings Therapeutic Bodywork, in Quakertown, to provide customized, restorative and preventative therapies informed by the principles of Tibetan Buddhism, ayurveda, Breema bodywork and permaculture. Her clients include elderly adults as well as those recovering from injury or living with chronic illness.
What does healthy aging look like?
In my massage practice and yoga classes, I am constantly inspired by my elderly clients who show me living examples of healthy aging. The ones who are receiving regular bodywork sessions, staying active and laughing seem to be living a meaningful life.
How do relationships impact meaningful living as we age?
The idea of meaningful living being rooted in relationships starts with the relationship we have with ourselves. According to the science of ayurveda, each person needs to pay attention to their inner dialogue. Our thoughts, feelings and emotions have a direct effect on our overall health. This is the primary relationship to nurture.
