Chair massage is shiatsu, performed on a massage chair specifically designed for this purpose. Pressure is put on certain points of the body with the use of thumbs, palms and underarms.
A standard chair massage takes 20 minutes and is meant to prevent problems. If problems are already present, the treatment can be expanded, with the emphasis on redeeming those problems.
Chair massage is by definiton suitable to treat or prevent neck and shoulder problems, back problems or problems with wrists and arms.
The treatment can be performed through clothes. Loose fitting clothes are the most convenient to wear during the treatment.
