Hello my name is Caroline Platt and I am a remedial massage and holistic therapist and a Health and Well-being coach. We are all unique and that is why my massage treatments are tailored to my clients individual needs. One thing that has always interested me is how prolonged stress can have an impact on both our physical and mental health. This is why it is important to look after your own health and well-being and massage can play a part in your self care routine.
Dementia is a condition that I have experienced in my personal life as well as in my work as a massage therapist. I have seen the benefits that massage therapy can bring to a person with Dementia first hand; it can improve moods and helps calm the person reducing anxiety and depression. The power of touch is important for us all, but with people who have dementia it is even more so, especially to help them feel connected.
We are seeing high levels of stress, exhaustion and burnout and this has had an impact on anyone caring for someone close with Dementia I am now ready to launch mu Health and well-being program for Dementia family carers.
