Salt Lake City, Utah — Aesthetic VideoSource will donate 20 percent of all sales on its website during June to help provide free and reduced cost on-site massage therapy for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities and chronic conditions at their residential or treatment centers.
To participate, place an order during the month of June, using code “GiveMassage”at checkout, and Aesthetic VideoSource will donate 20 percent of the value of all items ordered to Tender Touch For All. Plus participants will save $1 on their order.
Tender Touch For All provides massage for underserved populations at a steeply discounted rate. In most cases, there is no cost at all. The service is performed on-site at assisted living facilities, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, VA Centers, senior centers or anywhere seniors, vets and/or the disabled may reside or be treated.
“We appreciate the support of our corporate partners like Aesthetic VideoSource and the individual donors who enable us to provide this wonderful program for our underserved senior and veteran communities,” said Marc Silverstein, founder and executive director of Tender Touch For All.
The organization’s massage therapists are all licensed and trained specifically in gentle, therapeutic massage for the senior population, which requires a little extra tender loving care, cognizance of health issues and the client’s mobility, and techniques designed for aging skin and muscles. They know everything from the proper touch to the most comfortable position and are also trained in the physiological, psychological and sociological aspects of aging.
Aesthetic VideoSource provides award-winning DVDs and online video streaming to massage therapists, aestheticians, dermatologists, spa professionals, schools and libraries worldwide.
“We have provided training for thousands of massage therapists, and we are happy to support such a great organization like Tender Touch For All,” said Shirley Gorospe, president of Aesthetic VideoSource.
“The veterans at The Salvation Army Northport Veterans Residence deeply appreciated the massage therapy event. The feedback was extremely positive, and they reported having excellent night’s sleep after their massage. It was a new experience for the majority and any continued support would be a blessing to our veterans.” – Deborah A. Rodriguez, Program Director
“It’s been moving to see our residents react so positively to this massage therapy service.” – Debbie Laskin, Director of Recreation and Volunteers, Buena Vida Continuing Care & Rehabilitation Center
“I’ve seen the benefit of Tender Touch Massage Therapy first hand, especially with our advanced stage dementia residents. The healing power of touch is an amazing thing. The instant Wendy, the therapist, places her hands on the residents’ shoulders they immediately appear to be less agitated and relaxed.” – Michele Fishel, Director of Therapeutic Recreation, Sunharbor Manor Nursing Home
