My prefix might make you feel the weight of the world
My infix might make you feel low to the ground
My suffix might make you feel old and tired
But all of me put together might make you feel good

What am I?

You must be a

MASSAGE

My prefix might make you feel the weight of the world

A large "MASS-" means a heavy weight

My infix might make you feel low to the ground

I feel low to the ground when I "-SAG-" (not the other infix in there)

My suffix might make you feel old and tired

Please don't remind me of my "-AGE"

But all of me put together might make you feel good

I'll take a back or shoulder massage right about now

I like how there's a sense of lethargy until the last line.

I think anodyne has the right answer. My thinking was a bit different, so posting it below.

You are a

MASSAGE

My prefix might make you feel the weight of the world

MA. Newton’s second law suggests force = mass * acceleration (F = m*a). Additionally, newton’s third laws suggests that when a body exerts a force on a second body, the second body exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction of the first body. So when we stand on earth, we feel the force of the entire world!

My infix might make you feel low to the ground

SS. The Schutzstaffel was a major paramilitary organization and their actions can still make people feel really down and sad.

My suffix might make you feel old and tired

AGE. As your age goes up you start feeling old and tired :(

But all of me put together might make you feel good

A MASSAGE feels good!!
