Learn the chair massage technique in massage school!

Have you ever wanted a quick way to relax and relieve stress during a busy day? If you’re on-the-go, but need time to destress, a great option is to get a chair massage. This massage modality has many benefits for a healthy mind and body.

If you enter a massage training program at Branford Hall Career Institute, one technique you can learn is how to give a chair massage. Professional massage therapists provide chair massages to clients who need minor adjustments between their massage appointments.

Clients sit upright in a massage chair that is designed with a head rest so they can relax. While the clients rest, massage therapists offer a short massage of hands, shoulders, the upper back and lower back, and arms. Usually, these sessions last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. A general rate for a chair massage is $1 per minute.

You can find a chair massage in many shopping malls, retail districts, airports, and even corporate offices.

Chair massages are a popular form of relaxation. Here are three reasons why:

1. Convenient locations

Clients who get a chair massage usually need to unwind during a busy day. Some of them may not have had time to schedule an appointment in a while. Chair massages have convenient locations where there are usually crowds of people. While you shop or run errands, look for a chair massage in department stores, malls, and shopping areas. If you are traveling for business or pleasure, you can locate one of these in an airport. Their convenient locations allow you to relax and reboot for a busy day of work or travel.

2. Simple and efficient

Many people like chair massages because they are quick and efficient. The massage doesn’t require a patient to undress or prepare beforehand unlike other massage techniques. Customers can merely walk up to a chair and sit down so a masseuse may attend to them. These massage professionals will talk to you about your pain and needs. They will ask you for how long you want the massage so they know how much to charge and you know what to pay up-front. Customers can communicate which areas that feel the most pain and how much pressure is needed. Those who are busy benefit from the ease and efficiency of these massages.

3. Ease the strain on your time and money

A great benefit of chair massages is that it saves time and money. Scheduling a regular massage therapy session Is more expensive and cost more because more complicated techniques may be implemented. Many chair massages are offered at rates as low as $1 per minute. You can save money for a quick fix that will help you enjoy your day. Your massage can last anywhere from 10 minutes to a half hour. This short massage can easily fit into a busy schedule and improve your mood and any muscle pain or tension you may have.
