What is On-Site Massage?
It is also often called Seated Acupressure Massage, as the therapist works along acupressure points, or Chair Massage. It is dynamic massage of the upper body: back, arms, shoulders, neck and head on a specially designed chair. This massage is aimed at releasing muscular tension, improving joint mobility, preventing Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), reducing pain and encouraging soft tissue recovery. The massage is performed over clothing - except for the longer sessions, please see below. The pressure can be light and relaxing or deeper to get those muscle knots worked out.
Who benefits from it?
10 - 30 min sessions
These shorter sessions are quick fixes to get you going, ease tightness in achy muscles and perk you up a little but will not have long lasting benefits.
60 min sessions
These sessions will have longer lasting benefits, however, in case of a chronic problem or injury it is best to have regular treatments preferably in collaboration with other specialist and as part of a rehabilitation program to truly get to the source of the problem and to correct it. Please see description below.
During the first half of the treatment the massage strokes are applied over clothing then at the beginning of the second half I ask the client to take their top off (bras can stay on). I then wrap a towel around the client and use massage oils or sports massage cream to knead into the muscles. I incorporate deep tissue, sports and remedial massage techniques such as Soft Tissue Release (STR) to target and stretch out deeper muscles, to increase and prolong the benefits of the massage.
