Massage for Hospitals and Hospices

1 Place Left!

This is an afternoon workshop led by Jennie Parke Matheson

Working in hospitals and hospices means, in general, working with the very sick and infirm, and the elderly – certainly with mobility, possibly with mental health, issues.

Therefore the massage provided is entirely different from standard deep tissue. There is nothing deep about it. Take a look at my blog, Massage at The Royal Free…

Being a fully qualified massage therapist may not always be a requirement, depending on the organisation – but it certainly helps.

This session will give you a full grounding on what this type of massage involves and explore the differences – and discuss the behaviours and ethics that surround it.

During this 2.5 hour session we will cover: –

  •     Medical protocols
  •     Managing the environment
  •     Managing the clients
  •     Client communication
  •     Your massage tool kit
  •     Contraindications to massage in a hospital
  •     Which Oils to use
  •     Massage techniques for the elderly and infirm
  •     Massage in a hospital bed
  •     Massage in a chair or wheelchair
  •     Massage through compression stockings
  •     Massage with gloves
  •     Health and Safety

This workshop is a must for anyone who wants to learn how to give an effective massage to the elderly or infirm.
