Chair Massage for Every Body

Chair Massage Image


Whether you already do chair or table massage, are a health care professional, provide personal care services, or simply want to improve the quality of life for your friends and family, this course is for you.

TouchPro’s comprehensive chair massage program provides 32 videos and 30 downloadable PDFs that take you step-by-step through the process of learning a core 15-minute upper body sequence. Additional preview and practice videos guide you through the whole sequence or any individual part.

You will also learn critical screening and hygiene protocols and, in the Bonus Lessons, you can read about the history of chair massage, how to do a chair massage without a massage chair, why you need to pay attention to the possibility of fainting, and much more.

This is the first time the original course in chair massage is being offered online just as it was developed and taught by David Palmer, the “father” of chair massage. Since 1986, tens of thousands of students in hundreds of seminars around the world have studied this massage program.

That year David also introduced the first professional massage chair making skillful touch accessible to everyone. Unlike table massage, chair massage is simpler, quicker, requires no oils, disrobing, or private rooms, and it can be learned by almost anyone.
