On-Site Massage Course
(FHT Accredited)

The On-Site Massage, or chair massage, or seated acupressure massage,  is a twenty minute massage that is given through the client`s clothes, with the client seated on a massage chair, or at their desk. The massage can be given at the client`s workplace, hence the “On-Site” name.

On-Site Massage (OSM) is a meridian based therapy in which the thumb, finger, elbow and knuckle are used to apply pressure to many of the acupressure points on the 12 major meridian lines accessible on the back, arms, neck, head and legs.

The technique helps stimulate and balance the flow of energy in the body, this, in turn, stimulates the circulatory, muscular, nervous, immune and lymphatic systems, whilst promoting the release of endorphins and important mood-regulating neurotransmitters. The client is left feeling energised but relaxed, and able to focus their concentration.

Traditionally the basic sequence lasts 20 minutes, which makes OSM the ideal modality for the busy workplace environment where benefit from this quick, dynamic, de-stressing therapy and can return to their desks buzzing with energy.
