Presented by Frank Lopez, CMT, this two-day workshop covers virtually every aspect of chair massage, beginning with literal and liberal hands-on practice and ending with an understanding of how to harness its powerful revenue-generating potential. Once thought of solely as a practice building tool, chair massage is a leading income producer in the world of massage, with many opportunities for entry-level practitioners and seasoned-professionals alike.
A wonderful bonus of this training will be supervised work on non-students, who will come to our class with the myriad of compromises one works upon in the real world. Real work on real people, giving you the skills to put those hands-on talents to real work immediately.
Although the focus will be on practical skills for corporate chair massage gigs, during this workshop students will learn techniques for addressing virtually the entire body in their chair. Participants will learn specific strokes, stretches, deep work, and body mechanics specifically for application on the chair. In addition, we will cover client communication as well as look at a variety of chairs available for purchase. The ample hands-on time offers students the opportunity to explore fully and gain confidence with the techniques presented.
Students of Frank’s previous workshops have joined him working with clients such as GEIKO, Clorox, Bechtel, Jones Lang LaSalle Commercial Realty, Ketchum PR, the City of Colma, UCSF Medical Center, and Razorfish Advertising. They have provided chair massage for corporate wellness and employee rewards programs, as well as at company holiday parties, conventions , health fairs and private home-based celebrations.
