The Benefits Of Hand Massage

"Patient comfort is a goal of therapeutic nursing practice and a primary nursing function. Residents in nursing homes have many comfort needs including physical, psychospiritual, sociocultural, and environmental. These comfort needs are addressed by various caregivers including nurses, nursing assistants, and family members. Hand massage is a simple comfort intervention that can be incorporated readily into routine nursing care activities and conveys caring through touch, individual attention, and presence. As an intervention, hand massage promotes comfort and facilitates communication between care recipients and caregivers."

Suggestions For The Therapist

Before you begin, remove, rings, watches, bracelets, and anything else that might get in the way. Make sure your fingernails are trimmed, to avoid scratching the Client. Get oil or lotion and a towel to rest your hands on and to dry hands. Turn down the lights so there is no glare in the Client's eyes. If possible, turn on some soothing music, not too loud. If you are wearing long sleeves, roll them up.

Greet the Client and establish a pleasant, comfortable relationship.

Hold the Client’s hand between your hands to establish contact. Request that the Client report any sensations that are not comfortable to him/her as you massage the hand.

Then proceed as shown in the video(s) you have chosen to follow.

After you have finished one hand, Tell the Client you are moving to the other hand and repeat the entire procedure on the opposite hand.

When both hands are done, gently break physical contact with the Client, and reposition the hand in a comfortable position.

Exchange pleasant words of thank-you and good-bye with the Client.
