Massage for Hospitals and Hospices


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.
