Seated Chair Massage

What is Seated Massage?
Seated Massage is performed in an ergonomically designed chair, using a concise massage protocol, with the client fully clothed. The massage protocol is designed to access the areas of chronic tension in a person’s body in a short period of time, from ten to thirty minutes, without the use of massage oil.

What are the benefits of Seated Massage?
70% of the North American population suffers from headaches, stiff necks and back discomfort. In today’s fast-paced world we don’t always have the luxury of time to address these issues with conventional massage, however, seated massage presents an alternative way to effectively address these problems. Seated Massage is performed with the client sitting in a chair that has been specifically designed for great comfort. The chair is designed to alleviate the pressure on the lower back and it is fully adjustable to ensure that the client is completely comfortable. Seated Massage has the added benefits of being quick. The average session on the chair ranges from 10 - 30 minutes which makes Seated Massage not only time efficient but also cost effective. Another advantage for some is that it is not necessary to disrobe in order to feel the effect, nor is it necessary to be covered in oil as in a full body massage.
