From the robust to the frail, seniors have specific needs when receiving massage.
This workshop details seniors’ special needs as well as addresses how massage therapists can accomodate – through hands-on techniques and modifications – the changes caused by aging.
Participants will also learn how to massage those in wheelchairs as well as the bed-bound. Additionally, special populations will be studied, including those with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and diabetes.
