Also known as On-Site Massage, Seated Acupressure is a treatment given through the clothes to a client who is seated in a specially designed massage chair. There are no oils or creams used.
This treatment is perfect for anyone whose job involves sitting down for long periods of time, for example, working at a computer or driving.
It is based on the traditional form of Japanese massage, called Anma, which means press and rub.
The treatment time is generally 20 minutes, but this can be adapted to your specific needs, lasting from as little as 5 minutes up to as long as 30 minutes.
The treatment works to improve the flow of energy (Ki) throughout the body. It also affects the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Over 60 Acupoints and specific trigger points are also worked.
The benefits include improving circulation and relaxing tense muscles. It should also help to re-balance and energise you, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalised.
