RESIDENTIAL HOME MASSAGE
Touch is a powerful tool. It can both comfort and calm a person. With the elderly it is especially powerful. In residential homes, some of the residents have limited mobility or have some degree of deteriation in their sight and/or hearing. These residents can benefit hugely from a personal hand massage/reflexology or a soothing Indian head massage.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
For the more able body residents, chair massage is available. Each one of these treatments is tailored to the needs of the individual. The massage helps relieve any tension. Then gentle percussion techniques are used to increase blood flow within the body, helping oxygen to reach all the vital organs. And lastly, the resident is given a good stretch. At the end of the treatment, the resident feels looser, taller and more energised.
