What is chair massage?
Chair massage – also known as seated massage – is a type of massage that takes place on an traditional massage chair, designed to take the weight off the spine and give easy access to the head, neck, back, shoulders and arms.

What to Expect
All massage treatments should always begin with a quick safety check to ensure that you are fit and well, essential to highlight any potential health issues to our therapist. Following this, you will be shown how to sit on the massage chair. You do not need to remove any clothing, as skin-to-skin contact is not essential – just ensure that you feel comfortable on the chair prior to the treatment.
Our specialist will then use a mixture of acupressure techniques across your back, shoulders, arms, hands, neck and head. If you wish to have us focus on certain areas it is best to request this before the treatment so as not to interrupt your moment of relaxation, or of course, simply mention during the treatment that you would prefer time spent on specific areas. We will generally avoid areas that have suffered prior injury so as not the aggravate the condition.
