You can also book personal grooming services such as mobile nail care and hair care including hair washes, cuts, colours and facial hair trims by professional hairdressers and beauticians.

Before your mobile massage therapist arrives at your residential aged care we recommend ensuring you have a space available for the massage to take place.
If it is taking place in the resident’s bed, make sure the therapist is able to walk around the perimeter of the bed. If the massage is taking place on a portable table, a 2x2m space will need to be cleared.
Every therapist on the Blys platform is trained and qualified in a variety of massage styles. Your residential aged care therapist will be experienced, qualified and knowledgeable in the particular practicalities of aged care massage, including pressure, ailments, palliative care, and how to tailor the massage for each client. All therapists are professional and compassionate – we’re here to help.
Mobile massage services are especially valuable to elderly, disabled or otherwise compromised/vulnerable clients. Your mobile massage therapist brings all their own equipment directly to the door of your home or room. Massages can be booked online or via the app with minimal effort.
No need to leave, travel, park, and then do it all again on the return – everything comes right to you with Blys. We prioritise flexibility, convenience and practicality above all so that we maximise healing time and minimise everything else.
Whilst an aged care massage is designed for the elderly population, you must consult your health care practitioner before engaging in any kind of physical therapy.
In particular, if you experience chronic pain, a terminal illness, cancer or are in palliative care or hospice, you must consult your health care professional to ensure that an aged care massage is safe and appropriate.
Blys wishes to support every client around Australia to the best of our ability without compromising health.
Geriatric massage is the professional term for aged care massage. Geriatric massage is a style in and of itself and employs its own massage techniques to service the aging body. Those who experience Parkinson’s, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, or any other old-age-related condition can benefit from a geriatric massage.
By using tailored pressure, flowing strokes and compassionate touch, your geriatric massage therapist can reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation and natural joint lubrication, increase mobility and generally assist in relieving the side effects of aging.
