Since its development in the 1980's, seated acupressure bodywork has spread rapidly across the world, and more and more people are becoming familiar with massage in a chair. Therapists can often be seen in shopping centres, department stores, airports, and health fairs, offering this 20-minute treatment to members of the public. Treatment can also be offered 'on-site' in the workplace, as well as from private clinics.
Seated acupressure bodywork is a sequence developed from traditional oriental anma and shiatsu style massage techniques to improve health, energy flow, and reduce tension. Acupressure points are located throughout the body on meridian lines, and are stimulated using finger and elbow pressure with the addition of kneading, percussion, mobilization, and stretching. This will balance the flow of energy and stimulate the muscular, nervous, lymphatic, immune, and circulatory systems, leaving the client relaxed yet energized - the perfect remedy to a stressful life.
