Geriatric massage is a form of massage therapy designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. As people age, massage can help to manage the many physical and mental challenges that arise. People who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, depression and other age-specific conditions can have chronic pain, poor circulation and limited physical activity. The treatment can be modified for bed and wheelchair bound patients, and to accommodate the individual health concerns of each patient.
Geriatric Massage Benefits:
- Reduces Chronic Pain
- Increases Circulation and Range of Motion
- Decreases Stress, Anxiety, Depression and Loneliness
- Injury prevention (increased flexibility and stability can help prevent falls)
- Improves Quality of Life
- Lowers Blood Pressure
- Improves Sleep
- Improves Digestion
Geriatric massage can take place in my office, the client’s home or hospital.
