Elderly adults typically exhibit a deterioration in mobility and movement during the aging process, along with experiencing increasing stiffness, aches and pains, and weakening of muscles making them more fragile.
Seniors (Geriatric) massage helps to alleviate discomforts through the application of gentle, caring, and safe techniques to facilitate pain relief, relaxation, and an overall feeling of well-being. A compassionate healing touch is important to all of us, but truly more beneficial for many seniors who are not as mobile as they used to be.
Massage adds to create activity and vitality. It stimulates circulation, diminishes aches and pains, relieves joints and muscles friction, allowing for more mobility. Furthermore, massage helps to induce a feeling of well-being, minimizing depression to create a happier and optimistic outlook on life.
Massage can be given in the comfort of your home, long-term care facility, or hospital. Depending on the condition, the person receiving the massage can be in bed, seated upright in a chair or wheelchair, or lay on a floor mat. Each session is tailored to the current health condition and needs of the individual. Nothing vigorous is performed.
For clients who are bed-bound, the practitioner will administer massage right on the bed. More focus will be spent on the hands, arms, legs and feet. This will also enhance relaxation, body awareness, sensation and circulation in an aging body. In-home or on location services offer convenience as the elderly do not have to travel to receive the massage.
Other Benefits Of Seniors / Geriatric Massage:
To ensure that massage can be received, the client will be required to first obtain a Medical Doctors approval, for in some cases massage for seniors is not recommended.
