Massage & Yoga
Any exercise, whether it is gentle movements, breathing techniques or massage movements such as reflexology can greatly benefit the body and the mind. So, to ensure their minds and bodies are stimulated, Pentlow staff commission yoga and massage therapists to the home to teach residents new techniques.
Once a week, residents are treated to a range of different massages and treatments to help them relax. Sandra, from Jasmine Therapy is experienced in techniques such as reflexology and Indian head massage. These therapy sessions are a new activity at Pentlow, and the response from residents has been extremely positive.
Residents also get involved with group chair yoga sessions every fortnight, yoga professional Nicole encourages residents to concentrate on breathing and relaxation techniques.
