Elderly Massage Benefits
Elderly Massage Benefits
Elderly massage therapy benefits those who are in their later years and want to experience an elderly massage.
Our elderly massage therapy benefits not only older people, but also their wider circle which they interact with. This may be the residential care home that they live in, the day care centre they go to or perhaps the family that they live with.
Whatever your circumstances, elderly massage therapy benefits you since it will help to address aches, pains, stiffness. Most importantly it will help to keep you connected to those around you, helping with feelings of loneliness and isolation.
Elderly massage therapy benefits us since it relies on the power of touch. Touch conveys many messages and when a therapist works with someone who is older, it will let them know that they are being cared for, nurtured and that someone wants to connect with them.
Elderly massage therapy benefits those who in particular, suffer from dementia. The safe touch that the therapist conveys, helps the person who is experiencing dementia, calming them down and making them feel more relaxed.
It is an incredibly powerful tool to use and one that is easy to organise.
You can decide to have an elderly massage therapist attend your place of work, whether it is a care home, specialist group, charity or residential home. Our therapists are all qualified and will be delighted to offer this beneficial service to you and your client base.
Elderly massage therapy benefits can be passed onto you during our elderly massage courses. We will teach staff how to give a specialised elderly massage to clients, their friends or family members.
You will be taught by an experienced therapist, who will attend your residential home, group, etc, so that you will receive elderly massage therapy benefits.
We love elderly massage because it is natural and there are so many elderly massage therapy benefits that include, but are not limited to:
• Addressing aches, pains, stiffness
• Boosting circulation
• Reducing feelings of loneliness
• Calming the mind and body
To find out how you and your group can begin to get elderly massage therapy benefits, email us today and we will be able to send out a therapist local to you.
Elderly massage therapy is popular amongst the older generation as a way of boosting circulation and addressing health and wellbeing issues.
Elderly massage therapy is ideal for those who may live in a residential home, go to a day care centre, are part of a group etc.
Our trained elderly massage therapy staff are available to not only offer elderly massage to you but also will be able to teach elderly massage therapy to your group.
Elderly massage therapy is an excellent tool to help address aches, pains and stiffness. It works on the basis that touch is powerful and that a safe and nurturing touch is beneficial for those who are older.
Many older people feel isolated, lonely and as a consequence suffer from depression. Although not a cure for depression, elderly massage therapy is a natural therapy that has many benefits for older people.
When we are touched, a variety of chemicals are released by the brain, which make us feel good, one of which is oxytocin.
It is this chemical that helps us to bond with one another – it is released when a woman has given birth and needs to bond with her child or when we fall in love.
Massage produces the same chemicals and it is for this reason why we feel great after a treatment.
Elderly massage therapy works on the basis that touch is essential regardless of our age and as we get older, the less we seem to make contact with others around us. Loneliness and isolation are prevalent amongst our older generation and it is with this in mind, that we offer elderly massage therapy.
We have found that it is incredibly beneficial to those who experience dementia, providing calmness and relaxation in a typically anxious and stressful day.
Our trained elderly massage therapists will be at hand to offer you and your group a relaxing massage that will make you feel more relaxed and relieved of aches and pains.
We also have the capacity to teach staff within a variety of establishments or groups of individuals, elderly massage therapy. We want to share our knowledge about massage and would like for as many people to benefit from it.
Our Managing Director, Lubna Latif, is passionate about passing on the knowledge that she and other therapists have accrued over the years. We would like to work with you so that the population you work with or are a part of, can benefit from elderly massage therapy.

I asked Lubna to come in and teach my staff how to perform hand massages on my elderly residents.
The staff really enjoyed it but the biggest benefit was to the residents, especially those who have dementia.
The touch element seemed to calm our quite vocal residents.
I am thrilled with the results and urge care homes to speak to Lubna about introducing hand massage into their homes.
Thank you Lubna!
