Massage for the elderly
Gentle massage can be used to soothe conditions such as muscle stiffness and soreness, loss of flexibility, arthritis, tendonitis and high blood pressure. It also provides a sense of nurturing that comes from being gently and respectfully touched. Very frail or modest clients can benefit just as much from a foot, hand or face massage.
