Chair Massage is a great way to alleviate and manage stress in the workplace. It requires very little space; it is convenient, efficient, and most importantly - time well spent. In recent years, it has become one of the most cost-effective benefits offered by companies to help reduce health-related expenses.
Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short — 10 or 15 minutes — and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms. Chair massage is done over clothes and doesn’t require any massage oil.
For chair massage, you are seated in a special chair with your face resting in a cradle, looking down towards the floor, with supports for your arms. Your back and neck completely relax while the therapist relieves muscle tension using Swedish massage moves like kneading and compression and tapotement, which don’t require oil.
HOW DOES MASSAGE THERAPY WORK?
Massage therapy improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
WHY DO PEOPLE GET MASSAGE THERAPY?
People get massage therapy for relaxation or for a variety of health conditions:
WHAT A TYPICAL MASSAGE THERAPY SESSION IS LIKE
A typical massage therapy session is between 60 and 90 minutes. Your massage will begin with a brief consultation and review of symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle.
You will be asked to undress (many people keep their underwear on) while the massage therapist is out of the room, and lie face down under a sheet on a padded massage table.
The massage therapist will make sure that you are ready before entering the room. The massage therapist re-enters the room and will then adjust the face rest and pillows to ensure that you are comfortable and properly positioned. Tell the massage therapist if you are too warm or cold.
The massage therapist uses a light oil or lotion on the skin and begins the massage. A full body massage usually begins on the back and then moves down to the legs. You will then be asked to turn over so you are face up. The massage continues on your arms, legs, neck, and abdomen.
You are underneath the sheet at all times, only the part of the body being treated at any one time is uncovered.
After the massage, the massage therapist leaves the room so you can get changed.
Take your time getting up. If you sit or stand too quickly you may feel lightheaded or dizzy.
