I'm not sure what the next innovation in massage therapy will be but-- You don't need to lie on a massage table to have a massage.
You don't need to take your clothes off to have a massage.
You don't need to have an hour off the have a massage.
You don't even have to leave the office to have a massage!
So what am I talking about?
Chair massage, this is the clothes on, no oil massage that is designed for doing in the workplace but can be done anywhere - exhibitions, conferences, wellness events, pamper events. Sessions are normally short (5 to 20 minutes) so it is easy to fit a massage into a busy schedule!
Chair massage is normally performed on a special chair. (There is picture of one at the bottom of the page.) Some people seem to think they are looking at a chair of torture, but that is before they sit on it. In contrast to most chairs, you don't sit back on this chair, you lean forwards onto the chair.
So what makes this such a comfortable chair? There is a chest rest and a face rest. So when you lean forward, there is cushion support for your chest. Ahh, your body can relax. What a wonderful feeling to relax! (I have even had people fall asleep during a chair massage so they must have found it comfortable!)
When sitting on the chair in this leaning forward posture, it is easy for the therapist to massage the neck, shoulders, and back. Aches and pains can be quickly and simply addressed. Back pain, neck pain, long standing shoulder issues, headaches, have all been helped with a massage on a chair.
Massage is normally extended to the arms and hands. (You use your arms and hands in most of your daily activities but how often do you stretch them out?) Issues such as forearm tension, elbow pain, stiffness in the fingers, have been helped with massage.
Never had a massage before? Try a chair massage. What could be simpler?! Especially if you live in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire!
