What kind of chair massage will you teach me?

Our style of on-site chair massage comes from all our experience since 1995 of offering a massage in offices and in our shops. Our method is based on Japanese Shiatsu, but it also fuses the
best of Western Massage & “Tuina” massage techniques.

Our chair massage techniques are simple, yet it’s a very powerful form of seated massage therapy,
that has been tried and tested and has proved successful in all our branches since 1995.

The on-site chair massage course is for massage therapists:

Jason Norman was a very inspiring, motivating, attentive and thorough massage tutor.

It is also great that we are able to work at the walk-in backrub shops but even if I don’t, I’ve leaned lots of great new seated massage skills that I can take away and use on my own clients.

I did not expect much from it, since it was in just one day but it exceeded my expectations.

I learnt about the meridians, some of the best acupressure points
to help people relax and the importance of being mindful
in order to give a good massage
