More than just marketing at a health fair, seated massage has evolved to become a vital specialty area in the field of massage therapy. It allows the massage therapist and bodyworker to reach out to the community with greater accessibility and affordability.
Seated therapy can be performed on-site at the client’s location or the therapist’s office. Seated therapeutic massage sessions are shorter and treatment is through the clothes of the client without oil. Highly effective in promoting the therapist’s private practice, it can also be developed as a complete practice itself. Chair massage has brought therapeutic massage out into the open for the general public to easily access.

The instructor will demonstrate several routines:
1: Relaxation Routine
2: Therapeutic Back and Neck Routine
3: Therapeutic Routine for Shoulder with Stretching
4. Therapeutic Treatment of the Lower Extremities

Upon completion of this class, participants will:
• Identify their target market and list several promotional strategies for reaching that market.
• Describe key considerations to take into account when setting rate and establishing contracts
with clients and independent contractors.
• Demonstrate proper body mechanics for chair massage and identify proper ways to sanitize and
maintain their equipment.
• How to prepare for the day of your event and what supplies to bring.

If you could bring your chair for seated chair massage – Great! If you don’t have one, don’t worry about it – we have them.
