Geriatric Massage Therapy

Geriatric Massage Therapy is massage for the aging client. It is different from massage for the younger clientele because specific precautions must be taken to ensure safety to the client is a priority. Often times there are health issues and sometimes even contraindications such as Osteoporosis or Diabetes or Joint replacements. Each geriatric client is carefully screened to ensure that all health conditions and concerns are discussed and a proper treatment plan is devised. Typically a very light Swedish Massage is appropriate and just enough to make the client feel relaxed and pampered, as well as, safely increase their circulation and offer a caring positive touch. The geriatric massage session typically lasts one hour and can be extended, if appropriate, to 90 minutes and combined with Reflexology or Healing Touch.
