Services We Offer
Massage For the Elderly
Our seniors want to feel good and live in a productive and meaningful way. In our experience, a large majority of the elderly are touch deprived. The human touch is important for all ages. It is amazing how the power of touch transforms people in nursing homes and assisted living facilities as well as in their own homes. They smile. They feel relaxed.
Studies have shown that the elderly see significant benefits from massage. These modalities stimulate circulation, boost the immune system, and ease the aches and discomforts that plague them. They feel something that many have never felt before – because so many have never had the opportunity to experience being so relaxed and connected.
Some of these folks suffer from increased fragility and sensitivity to touch, partial physical activity capabilities, and some negative emotion. With all of our services, we are mindful of each client’s capabilities and limitations. We are prepared to accommodate wheelchairs and have extensive experience working with people who have restricted range of motion and discomfort. At assisted living centers, nursing homes, and public housing facilities, we work with the activity director to craft a program geared to each of the participants.
At Soothing Touch To Go, our caring and experienced professionals work with the elderly, introducing them to these important modalities. We teach simple ways to help them ease their discomfort. By using our relaxation tools, our team helps the elderly experience feeling good, sometimes for the first time in a long time.
We offer a wide variety of services from wellness programs and relaxation experiences tailored to the elderly to corporate event and private party massage. Our on-site services help to promote sleep, nourish self-healing, and restore balance and harmony.
For the elderly
Bring the power of touch to the elderly in their homes or wherever they reside
For corporate events and programs
Show your employees that you appreciate them by offering them a relaxation break with a corporate chair massage
For private parties
Give your guests the ultimate relaxation experience
Whatever your location, whatever your reason to celebrate, we will provide the relaxation experience that you envision for you and your guests. We bring our table and/or massage chairs to private parties, like corporate events, bachelorette parties, and girls’ weekends, just to name a few. Recently, at a client’s venue, we set up our tables overlooking the ocean to offer guests the ultimate relaxation experience. And at another party, we offered members of a bridal party a sampling of a complete wellness program – from reflexology, to chair massage, and Reiki.
All of our programs are wheelchair and handicap accessible.
If this feels right for you and your community, employees, or guests, please contact us and we will design a program that is right for you.
Massage: Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and discomfort, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce stress as well as mental and physical fatigue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork are also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety, and create an overall sense of well-being.
We offer both on-site chair and table massages. A chair massage is a relaxing, gentle massage that focuses on the neck, shoulders, arms, and back. In less than 20 minutes, each person senses a deep level of relaxation. A table massage is of longer duration, sometimes around an hour, and the focus is on the entire body. We will work with you to determine which type of massage is most appropriate for you, your residents, facility, office, or event.
Reflexology: Gently applied pressure to areas on the feet and hands promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and increases circulation to all parts of the body. Studies indicate that reflexology may create well-being. Diabetes, body pain, TMJ, fibromyalgia, and bladder disease are some of the conditions that respond well to reflexology. The theory behind reflexology is that the pressure points on the feet and hands correspond to specific organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to these areas affects the organs, benefits a person's health, and provides an energy boost at the same time.
Reiki: Reiki is the Japanese word meaning universal life energy. This gentle method of hands-on healing is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance. During a Reiki healing session, light touch is applied that promotes stress reduction and relaxation, healthier living, and improved mood. Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterward enjoy a sense of calm and well-being as well as a deep, restful sleep.
Meditation & Reiki Circle: While being guided through gentle meditation, participants have the opportunity to feel the powerful, relaxing energy that surrounds them. The practitioner facilitates and introduces the long-term benefits of easy meditation and relaxation exercises. Seated participants will learn simple techniques that they can incorporate into their daily routines, raising the awareness and the importance of self-care.
A Reiki circle promotes such a feeling of connection and community. It helps each person release positive energy. The circle works on all levels – emotional, physical, and spiritual.
Awareness Stretch: Don’t be fooled; this isn’t exercise. In an Awareness Stretch session, we provide an opportunity for participants to revitalize their relationship with their bodies. This session will help them connect their mind and body. Incorporating breath and instructions, they will be gently guided to experience getting in touch with their muscles, breath, and mind. Just the physical motion of stretching helps them feel and become aware of each body part. Each participant, no matter what their activity level, will feel revitalized.
Tap into EFT. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, and it is considered one of the leading therapies for releasing negative emotions. In an EFT session, the participant taps on meridian end points to release and shift energy. This technique promotes new feelings of joy and well-being by literally tapping on certain points on the body. The particular sequences help participants tap their way to better emotional health. They will be amazed at how the two are connected. The Soothing Touch To Go facilitator will encourage participants to practice this special relaxation tool.
Creative Drumming: Our interactive drumming circle encourages participants to experience the freedom of self-expression that free creative drumming can create. We bring small drums, percussion instruments, and bells for participants to experience creative play. And in our expressive and creative drum circle, the facilitator encourages everyone there to make some noise— to express themselves in any way they want. This experience allows participants to do something completely different and shows them that beating a drum and making some noise are excellent outlets.
Laughter Yoga: Laughter yoga is a unique concept in which mimicking real laughter proves that laughter is the best medicine. In this session, we accompany a sequence of practices of laughter and breathing exercises, using eye contact and childlike play to generate contagious laughter. In this workshop, participants will learn different movements with body and facial expressions to create a laugh meant for releasing tension.
Nothing is better than a real belly laugh to make you feel good about yourself and your surroundings. Participants will be amazed at how great they feel after one of these sessions, how intense the experience is. They will be reminded of the importance of laughter to enhance their lives.
Color Me Happy: Adult coloring is all the rage right now, giving all of us stressed out folks a soothing and relaxing outlet. We help participants color their world – it could be painting, coloring, doodling, vision cards, paper creations, or finger labyrinths – by providing simple instruction to create free expressions of art.
For some events or sessions, we facilitate a mini-paint night with 5 x 7-inch canvases and a full array of painting supplies. And we have found that color affects so many of our elderly participants, giving them a joyful outlook and pleasant experience. They also feel like they are part of a community when then are working together to create their art. So much laughter, so many smiles, such a wonderful feeling of connection and expression.
In another session, each participant creates his or her own finger labyrinth. A finger labyrinth is similar to a full-sized labyrinth you would walk, except it is on a much smaller and more portable scale. The participant traces the path to the center rather than walking to the center.
The group is guided through the meditative process of using their finger labyrinths. We provide the supplies for this fun, creative, and interactive session that explores the possibilities of relaxation in a quiet and creative way.
Corporate Chair Massage
Many employees are hunched over computers or workstations for hours at a time. They experience discomfort, and after a while, they are too stressed to deliver optimal performance.
We bring our chair massages to your office or facility, working with you to deliver a program that is right for you and your employees. We give them a break that allows them to step away from their desk or project with a 10 -15 minute chair massage session focusing on their neck and shoulders that can change their outlook. It could even make their day! They will leave feeling refreshed, relaxed, and ready to get back to their work with a clear sense of your appreciation and thoughtfulness.
