Welcome to Day-Break
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 illustrates the need for qualified training in geriatric massage. Statistics show that 10,000 people join the ranks of the 65-year-old every day (this includes the baby boomers who wish to maintain their active lifestyles), and also show that several thousand new massage therapists are graduating from the nation’s massage schools every year without any special training for senior massage, elderly massage, geriatric physical therapy or geriatric massage therapy.
As we age, our bodies change ... muscles, tissue, skin, and even our circulation changes. As a Massage Therapist, understanding the complexities of these changes requires both theoretical 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.
