Join us Tuesdays for deep relaxation and a deep senior discount.
Understanding Senior Massage
Senior Massage, also known as Geriatric Massage, is an area of specialty that only some massage therapists offer.
What’s the difference between a regular massage and a Senior Massage? A Senior Massage is designed specifically to meet the needs of a specific population and to take their unique physical needs into consideration.
Senior Massage is based on the principle of tailoring basic massage techniques to meet the needs of seniors. For example, a massage therapist providing a Senior or Geriatric Massage will use specific techniques to safely manipulate the client’s soft tissue, improving blood circulation, relieve pain, and increase the range of motion in joints.
Some of the following modifications may be taken into consideration when providing a senior massage:
- Gentler massage techniques
- Shorter Sessions
- Positioning of Client During Massage
- Type of Lubricant Used
Regular and frequent massage for seniors can ultimately improve their overall health, help maintain mobility, and decrease depression and anxiety. However, it is extremely important to receive a Senior Massage from someone that has a current North Carolina License of Massage and Bodywork Therapy (LMBT) and is in good standing. National board certification and additional continuing education training in therapeutic massage coursework is also a plus.
Safety—As Important as Relaxation!
The senior population is at higher risk for contracting seasonal or other viruses. For this reason, any massage therapist providing this service must follow CDC guidelines using EPA approved products to clean and sanitize their office and massage space. For example, the staff at Carole Lilly Massage is thoroughly trained to disinfect and sanitize all areas of the office and treatment rooms between clients. Linens are washed using the warmest appropriate water setting and dried completely at a commercial facility. Our staff uses healthy hand hygiene using CDC recommended protocol. Face masks are now optional for all clients and employees. Please let us know if you would prefer your therapist to be masked during your session and we’ll add it to your preferences.
