THE GIFT of TOUCH...gentle massage & bodywork for elders/caregivers via our walk-in clinic, office visits, and in-home services.
Why is Touch Important for Elders & Caregivers?
Sensitive, skilled and caring touch can provide comfort to elders when illness, disability or aging reduce the capacity to enjoy life’s simple tasks.
Massage therapy has been shown to reduce muscle tension, stimulate circulation, speed healing and boost the immune system.
Our variety of modalities within the field of bodywork offers rocking motion, gentle, reassuring touch, coordination of body systems and injury support, “listening” touch to help bodies and emotions relax into comfort, and delicate hands-on rhythms that connect skull/sacrum– have positive effects on mental-emotional states as well as health and well -being.
We are here to raise matching funds we received to help us better serve elders through in-home therapist visits and services at our walk-in Clinic (full-hour treatments for elders and caregivers.)
Here's what our clients say about Hands-on Elders:
“This is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
“I would never let anyone touch me before, but with someone you trust, it is so healing.”
“Personally, I now feel pain-free in specific areas and less pain overall.”
‘I’m beginning to love my body with this work.”
“I recognize Hands-on Elders as a truly important contribution to the community.”
