Day-Break Massage Welcome
The Day-Break Geriatric Massage Institute is an organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life, in order to make living more enjoyable for the elderly, by teaching health care professionals the use of skillful hands-on work and current trends in aging.
The rapid increase in our membership and the increasing demand for workshops illustrate the need for qualified training in geriatric massage. Statistics show that 10,000 people join the ranks of the 65-year-old population every day. This statistic will likely hold through the year 2030, as baby-boomers “coming of age” wish to maintain their active lifestyles. Statistics also show that several thousand new massage therapists graduate from our nation’s massage schools every year without any specialized training to administer massage therapy or physical therapy to those groups labeled as geriatric, elderly, or senior.
As we age, our bodies change. Muscles, skin, bones, and circulation lose vitality and function. As a Massage Therapist, understanding the complexities of these physiological changes requires academic knowledge and technical skills that go beyond what is usually taught in massage schools. Learning Geriatric Massage is a way for you to rapidly increase your customer base and expand your income, all while helping the #1 FASTEST growing massage segment in the U.S.
The Day-Break Geriatric Massage Institute employs the leading educators in this field. We offer a comprehensive education in the proper techniques required to massage this ever-growing segment of our community. The teaching of safe, appropriate, and life-enhancing techniques for use in elderly massage is our number one goal. We look forward to partnering with you as we move forward together in this worthy endeavor!
