Massage for the Elderly and Infirmed
Validated by IPTI - (Independent Professional Therapists International)

Recognised by Embody - 3 CPD Points
 

This evening masterclass is designed as an advanced workshop open to qualified Massage Therapists.

One thing is certain about life and that is that as we grow physically older we develop certain conditions that may affect our mind and body. These ailments, in turn, can also affect the ways in which we view our futures and sense of well-being.

Massage therapy is particularly valuable for the problems associated with growing older.

The benefits of massage encompass conditions that may arise with age, such as muscular stiffness, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and respiratory problems such as asthma and emphysema.

Massage encourages circulation, decreases muscular stiffness, and helps to decrease inflammation that may rest in the joints. Careful massage can help provide the elderly with symptomatic relief and enable seniors to extend the vitality in their lives.

Working with the elderly can be a wonderful experience for both client and therapist alike. For many elderly people it may be the only human touch they experience.

  • EXPLORE AND UNDERSTAND THE AGEING PROCESS AND ITS IMPLICATIONS:
