Massage offers us an opportunity for connection on a physical level…
intentionally sharing compassion and healing touch. I was part of a team
that cared for my Dad as he died from Lewy Body Disease (a combination
of Parkinsonian tremors and dementia symptoms). Massage calmed his
tremors and the ritual we created around it, a cup of cocoa and playing the
same music, was reassuring and soothing greatly reducing his agitation and
aggression. Long after Dad had forgotten my name, he recognized that I
was there to massage him and would smile and grab his, often tremoring,
left arm when I came through the door.
Please join us at Designing Health to learn massage techniques that will
help you care for the person you love.
