Senior Massage

Elder massage is a specialty within the broad scope of massage therapy. Elder massage deals with specific techniques for those 65 years of age and older. These clients may fall into 3 specific areas.

  • Robust

    Clients who have less health concerns and are similar to a standard middle aged client
  • Age appropriate

    Clients who have two or more health concerns and fall within the geriatric definition
  • Frail

    Clients who have many health concerns and are fragile to the touch. These clients need precautionary measures taught in the special training workshops.

Pre/postnatal Massage

Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life. Massage techniques specific to them and their unique needs are essential in making the pregnancy and post natal experience the best it can be.

With the changes in the body to accommodate a new human being, issues like low back pain, and gluteal discomfort are typical, as well as upper back discomfort from breastfeeding, extended holding and carrying a growing infant.

Techniques designed for prenatal and postnatal care can help alleviate the discomfort, enhance the experience and assist with recovery.

Hot LAVA Shell ™ Massage

LAVA Shells™ are the world’s first naturally self-heating massage tool, designed to allow the therapist to add heat into their techniques.

LAVA Shell ™ massage is not a replacement for hot stones, but rather a unique massage tool that the therapist uses to mechanically work the tissues with the hot shells.

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a relaxing massage that focuses on removing swelling from the body, especially the legs and ankles. Areas of fluid can stagnate or pool in the body after injury or surgery, during pregnancy or in older age. Restoring that normal flow of fluids can greatly improve how you feel, significantly improve your health, and give relief to pressure and aching.

Lymphatic Drainage is a specialty massage requiring extra training, Midnapore Physical therapists have these qualifications.

Who should get Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

  • If swelling occurs with an injury
  • After any surgery to re-establish normal flow patterns around scars
  • After a car accident with injuries
  • Areas that are paralysed, for example stroke or quadriplegia
  • Recommended for everyone to determine if their flow patterns are optimal
  • Periodically as a part of regular health practice
