using seated acupressure massage

What is on site seated acupressure massage?

It is a 20 minute massage. The client remains fully clothed and sits in a specially designed chair. No oils are used. The treatment takes place either at Neal's Yard Remedies or at an employer's place or business.

Ailsa will work on a series of acupressure points on the head, neck, shoulders, back arms and hands. These help improve the flow of energy through the body. Tense muscles will relax. The client will feel revitalised at the end of the session.

Where did on site seated acupressure massage originate?

The treatment was created by David Palmer whilst working for Apple Computers in Silicone Valley, California. He noticed that the majority of the clients he worked with suffered neck, shoulder and back tension from sitting at desks all day (in many case working at a PC).
