Frequently Asked Questions
What is chair massage?
Chair massage is a seated massage on a specially designed chair that allows easy access to high tension areas of the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands. Chair massage is performed clothed without the use of massage oil. Muscular tension is relieved using therapeutic massage techniques such as compression, kneading, acupressure, tapotement and joint mobilization. Many people prefer chair massage over traditional table massage to address muscular tension in the upper body.
How long is a chair massage?
Chair massages typically range from 10-25 minutes. The length of session is determined by the sponsor (i.e. employer).
How do I prepare for chair massage?
For your comfort, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing, removing belts, bracelets & large earrings and tying back loose hair.
