Gentle non-invasive soft tissue therapeutic care for the elderly By appointment 7 days a week  203 N Harrison Ave, Cary, NC 27513 (919) 228-9559

Geriatric massage therapy is developed for use on the elderly. This technique of massage addresses specific issues common to elderly individuals such as increased fragility and sensitivity to touch. A professional therapeutic touch from your spcialists at Wake Medical Massage can help stimulate circulation, boost immune system, and ease aches and pains which plague many elderly bodies.

Many people feel that touch is beneficial on the basis of their own personal experience. Several studies have also supported the idea that touch can have a positive impact on physical and mental health. Elderly people often feel very isolated and alone, so a focused touch can help ease depression, stress, and other emotions related to perceived isolation. At Wake Medical Massage we believe in making your massage session and experience as comfortable as possible with:

Location options - Residents in-room, In-home, Massage room at a facility
Type of massage - Seated, In bed, On massage table
Level of clothing with draping- Fully or partially clothed
Length of massage session - Varies based on condition
 

Benefits of Geriatric Massage

  • Improved blood circulation (can help prevent complications of diabetes like leg ulcers and gangrene)
  • Improved lymph circulation
  • Improved range of motion for stiff joints   
  • Injury prevention (increased flexibility, better balance and stability can help prevent falls)   
  • Reduction of muscle adhesions (knots)   
  • Pain management  
  • Relief of anxiety, depression, and loneliness

Wellness Suggestion: Some clients who use geriatric massage have a companion or family member accompany them for their initial visit to make sure they have a comfortable and relaxing experience. You may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear during your massage. During the session, you will be properly draped or covered and only the area being worked on will be exposed.
