Today we had massage therapist Becky Emerson lecture on "The Simple Science Behind the Magic of Massage". She invited another massage therapist with her, Monica Zamora to help her with the demonstrations. They talked about the many indisputable benefits of positive touch.
Before the lecture each Resident received a raffle ticket. Then, at the end of the lecture Becky and Monica raffled off four free massages.
Becky and Monica brought in quite a crowd. The room was full before the talk was over.
The raffle for the free massages helped bring in the crowd.
Becky gave some positive touch to the Residents on a massage chair.
The Activity Director, Kathleen was happy to call out the 4 winners for the free massages.
Dorothy was one of the winners.
She received a little sample one today.
Ruth was also a lucky winner.
Anita didn't win the raffle, however she loved her mini massage.
Thank you Becky and Monica for bringing to The Elms "the sense of relaxation".
Reminding us to relax and take time for ourselves.
