Elder Massage

Muscles, tissues, mobility, skin, circulation, and even our sense of touch changes as our bodies age.  A variety of age related diseases such as Parkinson's, arthritis, diabetes, dementia, or heart disease is sometimes present. The world can become smaller, lonely, and sometimes isolated. Massage therapy for our aging population requires an understanding of these complexities. It can help maintain and improve overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced or lost due to aging. In addition, it can relieve anxiety and depression and provide comfort to touch-deprived elderly patients.  If age makes getting to or paying for a massage challenging, I will come to you with a reduced or waived travel fee depending on distance. We'll have the massage session in your wheel chair, or on your divan, or in the comfort of your bed, or on your back porch in the sun.

Contact me for further dialog about your circumstances, needs, and questions.

Home Sessions

Standard rates apply plus a $30 travel fee for standing appointments in the privacy of the client's home - service area is Charlottesville and the county of Albemarle.  Further distances can be considered. A table is provided at no charge to keep on site out of your way.  References may be requested.  For elderly clients, need for a table and travel fee may be waived as noted above.

Contact me for scheduling.

Business/Employee Chair Massage

You and your employees can receive relaxing rejuvenating massage, fully clothed on either a massage chair or a massage table at your place of business.  Rates quoted case-by-case based on mutual considerations.
