Never before in human history has our planet been home to so many older people – and the data suggests this climb to continue.
In the United States, it is estimated that by 2030 there will be 72.1 million people older than 65. The 2010 census revealed that the 65 and older population is growing faster than the country’s total population.
According to the United Nations (Population Division), worldwide, one in five people are expected to be 65 or older by 2035, with the 80 and over age group growing faster than any younger segment of the older population.
Why am I sharing this? Because the one health complaint that almost every older person will report is sore feet. Imagine 65 plus years of putting all your weight on these small marvels; gravity pulling you even deeper into your soles, and it’s no wonder they’re sore and tired.
So is it time for you to invest one weekend of your life to learn how you can bring relief to those trusty peds; relaxation to a deserving fellow human being? If you’re ready to say YES, then join me for the first Reflexology workshop of 2014 on March 29 and 30 in Gainesville, Florida. You won’t regret it.
