Building Community through Specialty Massage

The Benefits of Geriatric Work

Through my observations and personal experience, residents in multi-level care facilities require caring, skilled massage. They often have a dizzying array of diagnoses that the best rehab centers in the country have difficulty caring for. Day after day staff struggle just to meet the basic needs of residents, with little or no time to provide the gentle touch they so deserve.

Massage Emerges as a Lifeline to Dementia Patients

A Crabbèd Old Woman

The body it crumbles. Grace and vigor depart.
There now is a stone where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass, a young girl still dwells,
And now and again my battered heart swells.
I remember the pain, and I remember the joys,
And I’m living and loving all over again.
And I think of the years, all too few, gone too fast,
And accept the stark fact that nothing will last.
So open your eyes, nurse, open and see
Not a crabbèd old woman,
Look closer: See me.
