Acupressure Chair Massage Diploma Course

Train to become an Acupressure Chair Massage Therapist in just one day!

At the end of this acupressure chair massage course, you will be able to perform a stress relieving acupressure chair massage (also known as onsite massage or seated massage) on others. You will be a qualified practitioner, able to charge clients for this service.

The Acupressure Chair Massage Course is specifically designed for the back, shoulders, neck, scalp, arms and hands.

It is an extremely popular therapy due to its adaptability and convenience of not having to remove any clothing. Working on the pressure points of the upper body, this massage can be used in almost any setting, from the workplace to the shopping centre, even outdoors; hence it is also known as ‘On Site Chair Massage”.

The massage movements and techniques can be adapted to suit your client. Furthermore, the length of time for treatment is flexible making this attractive to busy executives. Around 10 to 25 minutes is the usual amount of time for this massage sequence.

Time: 10am – approx. 4pm
Cost: £130

Cost of the workshop is £130.

Acupressure Chair Massage Course Details:

This one day course is ideal for beginners with no massage experience or therapists looking to add this popular therapy to their existing treatments. The full course structure can be found at the bottom of this page.

There is a full practical demonstration for the entire class to observe which is broken down into smaller sections, making it easy to follow & learn.

We only run small courses of up to 6 people which is necessary to give you individual attention and to respond fully to any questions you may have. We will make you feel comfortable and relaxed and we will encourage you to communicate freely and openly in the class.

There will be lots of opportunity to practise your new skills. At the end of the day there will be a test to assess your new skills. As part of the training, you will practise seated chair massage and – even better – receive one yourself. We believe it is as important for you to experience the different massage techniques as to learn them. Only then you will know what your future clients will experience during their treatment.

No case studies are required – no written exams.
Following successful completion of the practical assessment, you will receive your ‘Practitioner’s Certificate’ and insurance details enabling you to use this treatment with the general public.
