Presented in a format that will educate, inspire and prepare you to integrate seated massage into an existing practice, create a new business exclusively with seated massage or develop classes to educate practitioners in this modality, Mastering Chair Massage begins with simple techniques and progresses to enhanced skills while emphasizing good body mechanics throughout.

Mastering Chair Massage demonstrates easy to follow, step-by-step instructions on applying over 50 techniques, important anatomical terms and self-care. A segment of the course materials is devoted to additional techniques and adaptations giving you more tools to work with, such as special considerations for working on clients in wheelchairs, elderly clients, or those with certain injuries and physical limitations, as well as specific techniques for treating low-back pain, its causes, when to perform chair massage, and when it is contraindicated. By following along with the video you will be able to incorporate many techniques and ultimately develop personalized chair massage sessions for clients.

Included in the course text you will also find:

  • More than 450 full-color illustrations, most of them photos, clearly showing techniques, concepts, Traditional Chinese Medicine channels and points
  • Brief descriptions of tsubos (points on traditional Chinese medicine channels) that practitioners may find useful to press for various client conditions
  • Special boxes called Perspectives, which contain interviews with practitioners who offer chair massage and can give practical advice from a business standpoint
  • Sample dialogues for use during sessions
  • Sample business forms and templates
  • Resources for chair massage supplies and information
