What Is Seated Acupressure?

Seated acupressure compressions

Seated Acupressure, which is also referred to as on-site or chair massage, is based on the original Oriental massages of Anma and Shiatsu.

The therapist uses their thumbs, fingers, elbows and knuckles to apply pressure onto acupressure points, on the 12 major meridians accessible on the back, arms, hands, neck, heads and legs.

All the techniques employed help to stimulate the circulatory, muscular, nervous, immune and lymphatic systems and promotes the release of endorphins and important mood-regulating neurotransmitters. Clients are left feeling relaxed, but energised with a clear and focused frame of mind.

This is a gentle and non-invasive treatment which means that it is suitable for everyone. Each session lasts no more than 20 minutes, which means that Seated Acupressure is the ideal therapy for the busy workplace environment where staff can benefit from a quick, de-stressing treatment and can return to their desks feeling full of energy.

Clever chair design allows complete body support for client’s and positions them in total comfort, allowing the therapist easy access to acupressure points without the need to remove clothing or use oils. This means that treatments can take place in most busy environments such as offices, shopping centres, spas and fitness centres. Over the last decade there has be a steady increase in the number of people benefiting from this effective treatment. There are now many corporations and businesses encouraging their staff to experience the relaxing benefits of an on-site massage.
