Massage for those with Autism and Learning Difficulties

Your care home for Adults with Learning Difficulties, Autism and other conditions, can be visited on a weekly basis, to provide appropriate massage for the adults who live there. The majority of people prefer foot massage, which I combine with some reflexology to help keep their body in balance. Some people like hand massage and some prefer head, neck and back massage.

The special people I visit often find the massage very calming and relaxing, even when their bodies do not want to slow down. I bring towels and cream with me and adapt the treatment to the mood and activity of the person at the time. A member of staff is always present. The maximum session time per client is often 20 minutes, depending on the client's mood and budget.

I have a recent CRB certificate and have worked in special needs environments for at least five years. People with autism have a special place in my heart. I understand that relationships take time to build and that sometimes people are not interested in massage on the day I visit.

Benefits:

  • can induce a sense of relaxation and calmness
  • can provide valuable physical and emotional contact with client
  • can be performed in any setting - a separate room is not required
  • may enhance feelings of self-worth
