Course Description

Working on a Seated Client It?s not always appropriate for massage clients to lie down for a massage or even to remove their clothing. However many massage professionals have limited experience or training in working on seated clients. This course is designed to show tutors how to teach students to work comfortably and effectively in a western massage style (i.e. to adapt familiar strokes to work on muscle release and to mobilise joints) when a client is seated in an ordinary upright chair or in a portable massage chair. It looks at the most appropriate massage in each of these seated positions, and how to adapt the techniques to suit a variety of clients and for situations ranging from a brief invigorating ?refresher ? to a longer relaxing treatment. The focus is on the common tension areas of the upper body - neck , shoulders, back, and arms and hands. Particular attention is given to the practitioner?s own bodyuse so that they can work effectively without wearing themselves out. Helping students to gain these skills not only expands their ability to adapt to a range of clients in the clinic. It also provides a very effective way of confidently taking massage to public events, talks and demonstrations, and the workplace .
