Chair massage is sometimes referred to as Seated massage or Corporate Massage. Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short, 10 or 15 minutes, and focuses on the back, shoulders and neck and arms. Chair massage is performed over clothes and doesn't require any massage oil. For chair massage, you are seated in a special chair with your face resting in a cradle, looking down towards the floor, with supports for your arms. Your back and neck completely relax while the therapist relieves muscle tension using Swedish massage moves like kneading and compression and tapotement. Massage is not just a luxury but a medically beneficial way to deal with the everyday aches, pains and stresses of our fast paced society. Stress is one of the major contributing factors lowering our immune system leaving us susceptible to disease. Massage can be a very beneficial way to help cope with the mental and physical stress we encounter everyday.
Chair massage is a great way to bring the massage office to you. A portable ergonomically designed massage chair allows the benefits to be enjoyed virtually anywhere. Chair Massage is a great addition to a benefits package for employees that employers can offer.
