Seated Acupressure Massage

Seated Acupressure Massage or Onsite Seated Acupressure Massage is based on a traditional form of Japanese massage called 'ANMA', which means press and rub. Works on the muscular, circulation and nervous systems, stimulating over 60 specific pressure points on the head, neck, shoulders, back and arms.

It leaves you feeling great

Designed to be performed in the workplace (but can be carried out anywhere) the massage is received fully clothed while seated face forward in an ergonomically designed chair. The kata or sequence of movement's works to improve the flow of energy throughout the body, while strengthening /balancing the muscular, circulation and nervous systems. The therapist uses their hands, fingers, thumbs and elbows to apply pressure to the acupressure points, therefore taking twenty minutes to perform. This will leave the client feeling relaxed, yet alert and revitalized.

OSM has been designed to help reduce stress in the workplace and every day life.
