The elderly are expected to be one of the driving forces of health for families and communities, not only seen as a burden on the family or the burden of development, it is time for the elderly to make fundamental changes. The role can be enhanced by increasing the ability to provide health services and motivation for the elderly to apply their abilities in the family and community. The aim of community service is to improve the ability of the elderly as traditional health massagers using training methods. Training on full-back massage for the elderly is new, where before they had never been exposed to information about full-back massage. The knowledge of participants as a traditional health person experienced many changes after attending the training. Traditional health skills are the role of the elderly in achieving improved family and community health while providing opportunities for increasing income so that there is a need for support from families and various related parties.
