Therapeutic Massage

The Therapeutic Hand Care Service is provided by Irish Red Cross Volunteers who are trained to give a hand massage, neck and shoulder massage and/or a manicure to both men and women in hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, day care centres and in their own homes.

The massage aspect of the service is also provided at information and awareness days for a variety of organisations and groups. The relaxing effect of the massage is very beneficial, especially for those who have painful and stiff joints; it can improve flexibility and suppleness.
