One of the most gratifying aspects of my massage practice is the work I do with older adults.
Many of my senior clients enjoy robust health, active lifestyles and busy social lives. Massages helps these clients to maintain a healthy body with the use of modalities specifically designed to support the needs of older adults.
Massage may also help to alleviate physical ailments that often accompany the challenges of aging. It may also lessen the isolation and loneliness that results from living alone or away from family and loved ones. Loss of vision, hearing and mobility may further isolate those living on their own or care communities. Massage provides the client a way to connect with another individual while feeling supported and cared for.
Massage may help to alleviate physical these ailments that often accompany the challenges of aging:
- Arthritis pain
- Degenerative disease processes
- General Weakness
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Range of motion
While most of the work I do with older adults is in my office, arrangements may also be made to work with seniors living independently or in care communities.
In addition to over two decades of experience in working with older adults, I have received advanced training and certification to provide massage for older adults through the Day Break Geriatric Massage Institute
