Frequently Asked Questions

Got a few questions?

What is aged care massage?

Aged care massage is a specialised massage treatment that caters to the specific and often delicate needs of our senior citizens. Tailored to each individual client, aged care massage is a gentle style that focuses on healing through touch, with an emphasis on soothing and relieving symptoms of aging.

What are the different aged care massage techniques?

Aged care massage is a fusion of relaxation and remedial therapies, focusing on a calm touch with a restorative purpose. Using a combination of long strokes, varying pressure and kneading, aged care massage can assist in improving mobility and flexibility, relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and improving mental cognition, clarity and overall happiness.

What should I look for in an aged care massage therapist?

Every therapist on the Blys platform is trained and qualified in a variety of massage styles. Your aged care therapist will be experienced, qualified and knowledgeable in the particular practicalities of aged care massage, including pressure, ailments, palliative care, and how to tailor the massage for each client.

Who would benefit from an aged care massage?

Aged care massage is ideal for elderly clients who experience the pains and discomforts associated with an aging body. Ailments such as arthritis, chronic pain, weak joints, muscle tightening or weakness, atrophy, decreased mobility, loss of circulation, compromised balance and oedema/lymphedema are common among this demographic.

Massage is a physical therapy that employs the use of touch – a sense that some clients yearn for as they age. High rates of anxiety, depression, stress, loneliness and fear exist in this population. The healing power of touch can help to combat these negative feelings and emotions, providing a personal, sensitive and compassionate experience.

Who should not get an aged care massage?

Whilst an aged care massage is designed for the elderly population, you must consult your health care practitioner before engaging in any kind of physical therapy. In particular, if you experience chronic pain, a terminal illness, cancer or are in palliative care or hospice, you must consult your health care professional to ensure that an aged care massage is safe and appropriate.

Why choose massage therapy for the elderly?

As we age, our bodies go through a process of natural degeneration. Whilst this experience is unique to each individual, it is fairly safe to assume that we will all be subjected to new aches in our joints and muscles, develop conditions and ailments that were once foreign concepts, perhaps lose our ability to move unaided, care for ourselves or remember everything. Massage therapy can assist in all these areas by providing a holistic physical treatment that also soothes the mind. Massage is beneficial to the brain as much as the body, providing a skilled hand and a compassionate soul to people who need it most.

What is geriatric massage?

Geriatric massage is the professional term for aged care massage. Geriatric massage is a style in and of itself and employs its own massage techniques to service the aging body. Those who experience Parkinson’s, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, or any other old-age-related condition can benefit from a geriatric massage. By using tailored pressure, flowing strokes and compassionate touch, your geriatric massage therapist can reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation and natural joint lubrication, increase mobility and generally assist in relieving the side effects of aging.

Why is mobile massage the best for aged care?

Mobile massage therapists come to you with everything they need so you don’t even need to leave the house!

How does massage improve mental health?

Massage can increase the release of endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine which are the feel-good hormones. An increase in levels of endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine can leave the individual feeling positive, enthusiastic, and relaxed.

Massage can also help decrease the release of cortisol, the stress hormone. Massage can reduce the production of cortisol by promoting relaxation which can leave you feeling calm, relaxed and happy.
