Chair Massage addresses muscular tension in the head, neck and shoulders by specifically utilizing an upright chair versus a massage table. The chair allows the therapist to more acutely pinpoint and treat these areas with more direct access to these areas, and can be particularly beneficial for those with limited mobility who are unable to lay prone on a massage table.
Chair massage offers the additional convenience of remaining fully clothed, as well as in what can be a less vulnerable physical position. For elderly patients especially, the massage chair can offer appropriate muscular access to the therapist, while maintaining a comfortable and familiar seated position for the client. Offering many of the benefits and none of the potential positional discomfort, Chair Massage can be the perfect option for a wide variety of recipients. A great start for those new to massage too!
