Chair Massage

Chair Massage

A chair massage could be a good substitute when a regular massage (with body parts unclothed) would be inappropriate or inconvenient. This can easily be done in a more public setting (at work, social gatherings, etc.). The massage procedures listed below: a) reduce tension; b) increase circulation in the head, neck, shoulders, and upper back; c) will in many cases, help relieve a headache.

The massage subject should be sitting comfortably or in a chair where the head and upper back are in easy access. Both feet should be fully supported on the floor, or on a firm surface. All extra clothing should be removed (jacket, tie, etc.).
