CHM-110, Chair Massage

Chair massage is a comfortable and convenient way to expose clients to massage. Clients remain clothed and are seated in a specially designed chair to receive the massage. This course teaches the student how to do a 15 and 30-minute chair massage routine that includes the back, arms, hands, posterior neck, and scalp. Students learn a Shiatsu Kata, which is a 15-minute acupressure routine specifically designed for the massage chair. This course also explores marketing, supplies, contraindications, benefits, pay scale, ergonomic solutions, and therapist body mechanics. The student will also be able to think through the process of how to adapt other methods of massage and supportive work to the chair position, such as stretching, Neuromuscular, and Trigger Point Therapies.
