Working in hospitals and hospices means, in general, working with the very sick and infirm, and often 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 tissue about it. Take a look at my blog, written in 2013 when working in the Complementary Therapy Department at the Royal Free Hospital: 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, for either small groups or on a 1+1 basis, will give you a full grounding on what this type of massage involves, including:
- Medical protocols
- Managing the environment
- Managing the clients
- Client communication
- Your massage tool kit
- Contraindications to massage
- 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
