I've gotta agree with Pete; don't let the naysayers getcha down. Seeing as table heights can be adjusted, your back will be just fine. If you have smaller clients for whom this would be a problem, get a step stool for them to get on the table. No joke; I've seen it done.
As for the part I've quoted, you'll find that your hands are only a fraction of the practice. People often ask me, "Don't your hands get tired?" but you put your entire body into it. I'd think being 6'9 would only give you more leverage with which to work, and a wider base for clientele. If you ever wanted to work on an NFL linebacker, with training and experience, you'd fit the bill. If your age is a concern at all, one of my classmates was 67. Find your nearest ideal, accredited MT school and follow your passion.
