Q:  Who is it for?

A:  Seated Acupressure Massage is not suitable for pregnant ladies, so therefore anyone trying to conceive should also refrain from this treatment.  It is also not suitable to treat acute musculo-skeletal conditions, severe cases of Osteoporosis, Epilepsy (unless it is under control) and anyone with thrombosis.

Q:  How often do I need to have Seated Acupressure Massage?

A:  It is totally safe to have Seated Acupressure Massage daily, however not always practical!  Typically clients have a weekly treatment to help to relieve particular conditions and once they feel that their body is balanced, they might move to fortnightly then three-weekly or monthly for 'maintenance' treatments or purely for relaxation.  Other clients have Seated Acupressure Massage on an ad-hoc basis as a treat and it is very popular in the workplace to help with stress and tension.  Often employees return to work refreshed and raring to go.  If you have an acute condition, it would be wise to have Seated Acupressure Massage as regularly as possible until the symptoms are alleviated, then revert to a maintenance programme.  We will work with you to establish the ideal frequency of your treatments, as always, the deciding factor is yours.

Q:  What should I wear for Seated Acupressure Massage?

A:  Anything.  Seated Acupressure Massage can be given in the workplace, so even if you have a suit on it doesn't matter, although for comfort and to give better access to the back muscles, we would ask you to remove your jacket.

Q:  Anything else?

A: 

  • Do not eat a heavy meal within 2/3 hours of a treatment
  • Do eat something light such as a sandwich directly, or within 2 hours before
  • Do not drink alcohol
  • Painkillers can mask the signs of pain so you may wish to avoid taking them before a treatment
