Massage for the Elderly
Gentle massage can be used to soothe conditions such as muscle stiffness and soreness, loss of flexibility, arthritis, tendonitis and high blood pressure.
It also provides a sense of nurturing that comes from being gently and respectfully touched. Very frail or modest clients can benefit just as much from a foot, hand or face massage.
The Benefits Of Massage
For elder age groups the importance of taking regular massage has heightened in recent times as more people recognise how beneficial it is as a way to counteract the effects of sitting. Gentle Massage helps to counteract episodes of poor health and ongoing issues to do with mobility aiding both the mind and body.
For house-bound patients I am happy to offer mobile massage therapy to help you with muscle stiffness and reduce stress levels, making you more relaxed and aiding flexibility. I often work on elderly clients when they are sitting relaxed in their favourite chair. Also I think the company of someone is a great help to many of my patients as a number are prone to episodes of isolation where they can go for a number of days where they can not get out or get to see their families who increasingly have to lead busy lives.
As a professional Massage Therapist I like to also educate about the benefits of relaxation and massage.
Consultations & Sessions
During a Massage Therapy, we will look at where you are in your life at the present moment, breaking it down into different areas and into percentages. We then discuss where you would like to be in those different areas in the near future and how you would like to gently start making the changes. A session lasts an hour and costs £40.
