Chair Massage

Unlike other types of massage, chair massage requires no oil and is done over clothing on tense areas of the body for anywhere from 5-30 minutes. 

Chair massage can be practised in a small amount of space and is very popular in businesses and at social and athletic events. Besides equipping students with some new techniques, this course will teach students how to adapt the massage manoeuvres learned in our Swedish Massage I course to chair massage.

A brief history of chair massage and its benefits, indications and counter-indications will be examined. In addition, hygiene, maintenance of the massage chair as well as all necessary materials will be reviewed.
