Senior Spa 

Geriatric Massage and Spa Therapies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you ready for the ‘Silver Tsunami’ of Baby Boomers? According to the US Census Bureau:

In 2010, 13.1% of the American population was 65 and older. In 2030, that figure will be 21.4% and by 2050, there will be more Americans 65+ than children younger than age 15.

As of 2011, the first of the 78 million baby boomers turned 65. In 10 years those boomers will be 75, and in 10 more, age 85.

For the next 19 years, nearly 10,000 people a day will turn 65. And that doesn’t include the demographic that reached 65 before 2011.

 

 Most therapists already have seniors in their families and as clients. Working with seniors requires specialized techniques and communication skills. 

Many seniors can’t get on a massage table and those that do struggle to turn over. Special positioning techniques are taught that reduce fatigue in the geriatric client as well as the therapist.
