Tranquil Touch Dementia Care Massage

Tranquil Touch Dementia Care Massage

Sunday 11th September 2022

By Michelle Hammond

The tpot Tranquil Touch Dementia Care Massage is an incredibly nurturing treatment with a truly comforting touch, supported by soothing sounds, to support the needs of those living with dementia, and their carers. 

This training is for qualified spa and beauty therapists that hold a recognised level 3 (or above) spa and beauty qualification.

More than 55million people live with dementia worldwide*. The benefits of massage and music are widely evidenced and highly regarded in the support of clients living with dementia. And in the heart-led art of supporting and helping manage the emotional, mental and physical aspects of this progressive disease.

This is an accredited one day in-person practical workshop, underpinned by access to the tpot training portal, where each learner will be able to access a range of additional on-demand learning and resources both pre and post the training.  Note: Pre-course work is compulsory and failure to complete it will result in the learner being unable to attend the scheduled practical workshop. 

The training includes practising on real life models and requires successful completion of all course work, written assessments, case studies and reflective assignment work. 

On completion of the course learners will understand:

  • The pathology of dementia.
  • The common clinical treatments and interventions for dementia care, and the side effects and challenges of such treatments for variations of disease and what you can do as a result in the treatment room. 
  • The variations to product, treatment and facility selection dependant on the client and type, and / or stage, of dementia. 
  • How to communicate with confidence and feel more comfortable talking with clients at varying stages of the disease. 
  • The impact caring for someone living with dementia can have on carers and some of the most helpful ways you can support carers in the treatment room and at home. 
  • The true power of touch and the evidence in massage based modalities for dementia care, and complementary therapies in common practise in a clinical setting.
  • How to perform the tpot tranquil touch technique in a variety of positions, and with a range of adaptations and modifications to consider the uniqueness of each individual client and their prescriptive and personalised needs. 
  • The power of scent and sound in dementia care. 
  • Product selection (including green washing) and sensory overload. 
  • How to integrate additional facility inclusions (and what to exclude), the right product choices, and personalised and professional lifestyle and home-care advice.
