More than a Massage Therapist...

I have come to work in the UK as a carer but I have never forgotten my passion for massage and what it represents in terms of benefits for all. I was a carer and massage therapist in Portugal and I have experience in clinical context and as a freelancer. I have been waiting almost a year for comparability to be able to practice here and only a few months ago I started doing it simultaneously with care as I think that both areas can complement each other! Integrating massage therapy into care found statistically significant changes in pain, anxiety, relaxation and inner peace of patients, decreasing both pain intensity and anxiety while increasing the patients’ sense of relaxation and inner peace! The soothing touch of a hand can work wonders in evoking feelings of reassurance, trust, protection and relaxation. This simple act of touch is just one example of why complementary therapy is such a powerful way of helping people.

Massage for the Elderly

Geriatric massage therapy is designed to address the specific needs of the elderly population. This type of massage for the elderly uses gentle and light application of massage techniques and can include passive stretching and a light oil or lotion to permit your muscles to be worked on without causing excessive friction to the skin. These techniques can help enhance blood circulation, combat depression, improve balance and flexibility, reduce the pain of arthritis, increase joint mobility, improve posture, and encourage overall well-being. Benefits of massage to elderly people and people with dementia: A short hand massage can encourage a relaxation response in the brain, decreasing our levels of cortisol (a stress hormone). This is particularly important in elderly people as our immune system is stronger when cortisol levels are lowered. Massage can also increase levels of serotonin in the body. This is a neurochemical which regulates mood and enhances feelings of calm and relaxation. Massage can help release endorphins, which in turn make us feel happy and energised. Even if a person with dementia cannot remember having had a massage that day, they may remember the feeling of being happy. They may remember that they did something enjoyable that day, even if their precise memory of it has been displaced. It is important to keep doing these enjoyable activities, ensuring we keep releasing the valuable endorphins that our bodies need. Soothing massage strokes and comforting touch can help create a sense of trust for a person with dementia. This soothing touch can help to reassure and to reduce distress. It can also help people with dementia to feel comfortable in the company of others without the pressure of conversation or daunting questions. It is important to understand the expectations of complementary massage therapy for elderly people. It will not 'take 50 years off' and leave them doing laps around their care home grounds, nor will it cure illnesses. However, it does bring a number of physical and psychological benefits (of which we have just scratched the surface), which can help to make residents much more comfortable. I am a Dementia Friend but not a Dementia Care Specialist by any means, and my work is based on: my observations, personal experience as a carer and further reading. Discounts are available for Innovations Clients, people with Dementia and those over 65 (Relax Massage only). However you will need to consult your GP before receiving treatments (ask for info sheet)

Massage for Children - over 3 years old

Today children are faced with hectic lifestyles due to stressors of school, peer pressure, family problems, advancing technology, competitive sports, chores, and the list goes on and on. As the world keeps speeding up and moving forward, children are constantly battling to keep up and maintain the pace. They often never get a chance to slow down and let their bodies really rest or relax, and in turn this can lead to poor sleeping patterns. Studies have shown that massage can help decrease stress and stress hormone levels in children and adults the same. Studies have also shown that children’s massage can reduce anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Decreasing stress, in turn, can aid in improving sleeping habits. Now parents have the chance to learn how to give massage to their children! If you want to know more feel free to contact me please! :)
