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.

- Improved blood circulation (can help prevent complications of diabetes like leg ulcers and gangrene)
- Improved lymph circulation

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.
