shiatsu seated massage
Based on Shiatsu acupressure techniques, the Energizing Chair Massage treatments are particularly effective in providing relief for tension and pain often experienced by desk-bound staff working under pressure. Tight muscles caused by stress and sitting behind a desk all day, especially at a work station that is not ergonomically designed, can impede blood and lymph flow through the body. Such loss of circulation could result is mental fogginess, decreased energy and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome.
The chair massage involves the application of Shiatsu Acupressure techniques to more than 100 different stress release points on the head, neck, shoulders, arms and back whilst seated, fully clothed in a specially designed chair. Practitioners use hands, thumbs and even elbows to knead, prod, pull and stretch the muscles in a smooth, rhythmic sequence. This is intended not only to relax aching muscles, but to release energy and invigorate both mind and body.
