LINDA Mac DOUGALL, a senior massage therapist, senior health advocate, voice for change in the senior living sector, and an author, joined us to discuss her profession and her latest release, "The SPIRIT Method of Massage for Seniors: Raising the Bar...A Primer for Massage Therapists and Caregivers".
FROM HER WEBSITE:
"Linda got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology because she was seeking answers to family dysfunction. She already had a background of working with the developmentally disabled population since high school. She went on to be an administrator of two group homes for United Cerebral Palsy for over a decade. Following her ex-husband's career, she then moved to Hawaii and became a Federal advocate for the state of Hawaii's families dealing with their population of developmentally disabled. Her work there brought change to the system in the way of studies and a medical review board as well as the state guardians beginning to imitate her way of questioning and challenging the way things had always been done.
Today her focus has changed to the older adult population. She is a senior health advocate and massage therapist, a holistic health practitioner, and a management consultant for caregiving situations. As a senior herself, Linda is also an advocate for change in the senior living space. Her background and focus on awareness led to the writing of her book "The SPIRIT Method of Massage for Seniors: Raising the Bar...A Primer for Massage Therapists and Caregivers".
