Description

Course Description:

There is arguably no better way to introduce prospective clients to massage than with a seated massage.  The sessions are shorter; the cost is less than a table massage; and with clothing kept on, modesty is of less concern.  This course offers a basic understanding of the mechanics involved in mobile massage.  A comprehensive upper body routine including the back, shoulders, arms, neck, and scalp will be demonstrated as well as proper body mechanics and hygiene protocol specific to on-site chair massage.  On-site chair massage is a very lucrative niche of the massage world, and can help your private practice flourish.
