ZZZZZZZC2.) Intro to Day-Break Geriatric Massage: Level II (Seattle November 22, 2020)


Product Description

Instructor: Sharon Puszko PhD, CMT; NCBTMB #22353-00.

The Intro to Level II class addresses health impairments common to the aging with specific techniques for each condition.

The Workshop features these topics:

  • In depth information on the most common age-related health problems and how to work specifically with each, as well as cautions and contraindications.
  • Review of associated medical terminology.
  • Cautions in the positioning of challenged clients in wheelchairs and geriatric chairs.
  • Specific approaches to massaging people challenged with dementia/Alzheimer, arthritis and those who may be wheelchair bound.

After the workshop, you will be more comfortable with how to:

  • use the proper techniques to use while working under the direction of the prescribing physician but without the need for direct supervision.
  • work with clients who have various degrees of age-related health and mobility problems.
  • work in an Assisted Living Facility or Nursing Home.

There is a student clinic in the afternoon, where students work with older volunteer models.
