Publisher Comments:

Comfort Touch: Massage for the Elderly and the Ill is a textbook designed to inform the caregiver who is interested in bringing the benefits of touch to a broad range of people in need. It will give the reader the confidence to practice massage in a variety of settings, including hospices, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and home care. The practitioner can learn techniques that are safe and appropriate for the population for whom conventional massage may cause discomfort or even injury. It gives the reader an understanding of the physical and emotional needs of the elderly and those suffering from chronic illness and/or injury. The book is ideal for massage practitioners and students as well as nursing and allied health professionals.
