Chair Massage (David Palmers Concept).

The chair massage given is based on traditional Japanese series of acupressure points. The massage lasts for 20 minutes and covers the following points: Neck, shoulders, back, arms, hips and head. The massage is given through the clothes. This introduction to massage can make the step towards the table massage a little smaller. This type of massage is not suitable for pregnant women or women planning to conceive as the pressure points can stimulate contractions in the uterus.
