IT'S A SIMPLE THING PUTTING ONE HAND INSIDE ANOTHER, BUT WE DON'T DO IT OFTEN ENOUGH. TOMORROW GARDNER AND MIKE MAKEVOY DO. THEY GIVE FREE MASSAGES TO SENIOR CITIZENS TWICE A MONTH AT ST. PATRICK SENIOR CENTERS. THE SENIORS DON'T EXPERIENCE TOUCH FROM FAMILY, FRIENDS. A LOT OF THEM LIVE BY THEMSELVES. ONE OF MY FIRST CLIENTS THERE WAS IN HER 80s AND HAD A WALKER. AND WANT FEW SESSIONS, THE EDEMA WENT DOWN AND SHE WAS ABLE TO WALK AROUND MUCH BETTER AND SHE WAS JUST SO GRATEFUL, AND SHE CAME FOR TEN YEARS EACH WEEK THAT I WAS THERE. AND THEN RELAX. JUST RELAX. LAUGH IF WE CAN DO THAT, WE HAVE DONE OUR JOB. Reporter: LESS A JOB THAN A LABORER LOVE. TOM AND MIKE BOTH RETIRED HAVE PUT IN A COLLECTIVE 17 YEARS OF VOLUNTEERING AT ST. PAT OF VOLUNTEERING AT ST. PATRICK'S. TOM WAS A HOSPITAL THERAPIST WHO LEARNED REFLEXOLOGY AT HIS JOB. MIKE IS A RETIRED BUSINESS MAN WHO WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MEANINGFUL. WHAT YOU FEEL IS YOU GET MORE OUT OF IT THAN YOU ARE GIVING. DO YOU END UP HEARING A LOT OF STORIES FROM THE SENIORS BECAUSE THEY ARE RELAXED WHILE YOU WERE WORKING ON THEM. KIND OF LIFE STORIES, HISTORIES, WHERE THEY ARE COMING FROM. A LOT RAISED IN DETROIT SIMILAR TO DOWN SOUTH. IT IS A SIMPLE THING PUTTING HANDS INSIDE EACH OTHER, CROSSING THAT INVISIBLE BARRIER THAT KEEPS US APART. THE CONNECTION WITH PEOPLE IS GREAT. GETS KIND OF ENERGIZED BY T GETS KIND OF ENERGIZED BY THAT. AND JUST KEEPING IN TOUCH, LITTLE RATLEY -- LITERALLY KEEP IN TOUCH. THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH PEOPLE.
