It’s very useful to be able to massage seated clients (clothed) – for example when the client can’t comfortably lie down, to do mini-massages in public situations (such as in offices or at sporting events), and for public promotions and demonstrations.
This course will enable you to deliver:
- a brief 15 minute seated massage or a more extensive 30 minutes
- working with client in an ordinary upright chair, or a portable massage chair
- ways of working that range from a general relaxing ‘time out’ treatment to a more invigorating ‘refresher’ for people who need to return to work afterwards.
This is a 1 day course
The focus is on releasing tension from the shoulders, neck and upper back, and mobilising the shoulders. The massage techniques covered are based on western (‘Swedish’) massage adapted to working through clothing (i.e. without oil).
Particular attention is given to the practitioner’s own bodyuse so that you can work effectively without wearing yourself out. This is particularly important when you are working without oil, as it’s easy to tire or even strain your hands.
