What Is Geriatric Massage and why is it important?

The term ‘Geriatric’ refers to health impairments that are caused due to the aging process. Touch is the core ingredient of  massage, which combines science with art, and conveys a sense of caring. Seniors often experience fragility and isolation, and as a result can become withdrawn and  depressed. Geriatric massage techniques performed by licensed therapists are safe, non-invasive and can help reconnect seniors to their bodies and minds.

Having cared for her aging father, who was stricken Alzheimer’s, Sheila Alexander redirected her career focus to the growing senior population to provide them with the many benefits of geriatric massage. Her work led to a desire to teach massage therapists this profound work. Retirement communities, assisted living, memory care and hospice centers also benefit by integrating geriatric massage & spa therapies into their wellness programs. Sheila gives you marketing concepts and materials.

We follow all CDC health guidelines so you can safely certify as a Geriatric Massage Practitioner
