Seated Hands Free Massage utilises the therapists' forearms and the strength of their entire body to deliver a deep, powerful, relaxing massage for the client.  Using the soft, inner part of the forearms enables the therapist to spread the pressure over a much wider area than is possible with traditional massage techniques.  This means that the massage works deeper without causing discomfort.  Muscle fibres can be worked smoothly and easily, helping to ease away any tension, adhesions and knots.  The therapist also uses their elbows and knuckles in this treatment. 

This short effective and dynamic 'through the clothes' treatment is carried out of a specifically designed on-site massage chair.  No oils are used which is why the massage is received fully clothed whilst sitting on the chair.  The massage sequence usually includes the back, shoulders, neck, arms, hands and head - targeting all the areas most susceptible to tension and affected by long hours at a desk or computer.

It is not only an enjoyable and convenient form of massage but is recognised as an effective way to manage stress in the office environment - it is also a very popular treatment at Pamper Fairs.  Also, an ideal treatment for pregnant women or those unable to lie on a massage couch.


Seated Hands free massage can help relax or rejuvenate, release tense muscles, increase blood circulation and improve detoxification.  It can also be a benefit if you are stressed, tense, have aches and pains particularly in the upper and lower back.
