Geriatric Massage and Beauty
Geriatric Massage and Beauty therapy are treatments that are slightly modified to accommodate the special needs of the elderly. The body, as well as the skin and nails, are a lot more fragile, and often people my feel not confident enough to book a treatment. A couple of our therapist have done training with the Day-Break-Geriartic Massage Institute, to get a better understanding of the needs in this age group.
All our services are mobile and we visit our clients in their retirement village or at home. Our geriatric therapists get regular police checks and hold the senior first aid certificate, so you can be assured all is safe. We are registered with all health funds and you may be illegible for refunds for massage treatments.
Geriatric Massage and Beauty therapy is very beneficial. A a gentle massage increases circulation and brings fresh nutrients to every cell in the body. It reduces pain and muscular tension and increase mobility and flexibility of muscles and joints. By far the biggest benefit tough is mental and emotional. Geriatric massage and beauty therapy reduces stress, anxiety and some depression. Touch and the one on one interaction with a caring therapist is very positive for elderly, and makes them feel good about themselves and gives them a sense of worthiness. They enjoy the pampering and their nice nails, a reminder of the nice interaction they had.
Regina is a highly sensitive, caring and patient therapist that knows how to approach seniors to make them feel at ease, so they can get the most out of their treatments. Everybody is different. Sometimes takes a couple of visits before trust is established and the full benefit is noticable.
