Geriatric Massage

Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly population. It involves the use of hands to manipulate the soft tissues of the body to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and increase range of motion. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of geriatric massage.

Massage has been proven extremely beneficial for many of the disorders suffered by the elderly. It can increase circulation and lymph flow which then increases the red blood count. It can increase serotonin levels, absorption rate of medications, delivery of nutrients to cells, flexibility and relaxation levels. The need for touch is especially important among the elderly who are isolated from physical impairment much of the time. Massage can help fill the void they often feel and give a better sense of well-being from situations like this.

  • Stress Relief and Relaxation

  • Improves Skin Elasticity
  • Increases Mobility

  • Increased Sense of Well-being
