Young or old - every body is different. We recommend that all of our elderly guests consult a physician prior to scheduling a Geriatric Massage. It is also extremely important to share any relevant medical history with your therapist so they understand any physical limitations or conditions that might make specific techniques dangerous or uncomfortable for an older guest.
