Seniors & Geriatric Specialty

Caring services for the aging senior


Geriatric massage is designed as a safe, drug-free alternative to assist in the treatment and management of aging. Not just “softer Swedish”, this is a tailored and carefully designed therapy to helps treat common effects of diabetes, arterial occlusions, strokes, heart attacks, Parkinson’s, Dementia, Alzheimer’s and effects of depression associated with the isolation and solitude of the aging senior. A regular weekly massage may be the best prophylactic to most of the problems of aging.


Some less active seniors can suffer from touch deprivation and loneliness. Geriatric Massage offers not only social interaction through touch, which can combat depression, but is also clinically proven to help increase blood & lymphatic circulation, release endorphins & enkephalins,  and increases alertness. Geriatric Massage can reduce or prevent damaging depression through the experience of touch.


Geriatric massage is specifically designed to safely apply touch-therapy to the aging senior. The massage is adapted to thinning skin, vascular considerations, medications being taken, cognitive alertness, and degree of pain and discomfort. Adaptations are made so that seniors using walkers, wheelchairs, or confined to a bed may still obtain the most benefit with minimal risk.
