When our chair massage team works at events at the NYC Javit’s Convention Center we often find people who are amused by the design of these massage chairs.
Some people are reluctant to get massage because they are uncomfortable lying on a table or removing their clothing. Until the middle 1970s this posed an almost insurmountable problem for the massage therapist. However in the last few years various massage techniques have become popular that do not require the removal of clothing. Thanks to a massage therapist named David Palmer people no longer have to lie on a table to get massage and bodywork. David invented the original Portable professional massage chair. This tool is a great alternative to the table massage. Some people are required to sit upright, such as individuals with hypertension, certain circulatory, respiratory or heart conditions, people with limited mobility and women in the last trimester of pregnancy. Chair massage is great for them. There are many different models of professional massage chairs. If you contact different companies they can send you photographs and informational brochures on their products.
If you are not prepared to purchase a professional chair but would like to work with your client in a sitting position you can use an armless straight back chair. Simply place some pillows on the front of the upright portion of the chair. Now have your client face the back of the chair and lean against the pillows. In this position you can comfortably massage your client’s head, neck, shoulders and back as well as their arms. Another approach is to place a pillow on a desk or table and have your client sit on a stool and place their head on the pillow. There are also various types of foam head support that are designed to be place on desks or tables. These can usually be purchased from the same companies that sell massage chairs and tables.
