This Sitting-Back Massage Course will enable Therapists to take their work into the workplace or the client's home and is especially useful for treating stress related problems, desk bound clients and repetitive strain injuries. Also used for the elderly, pregnant clients or anyone who is unable to lie down.

Sitting-Back Massage Training extends the possibilities of the therapist's practice and treatment repertoire. We anticipate that this will be a very popular course and recommend that you do not delay in reserving your place.

Sitting Back Massage reduces tension in the back, neck and shoulders; thus providing deep relaxation. It promotes circulation and muscle stimulation. This Massage has become a popular way to introduce the general public to the benefits of professional massage.
