Since its development in the 1980's, on-site massage has spread rapidly across the world, and more and more people are becoming familiar with massage in a chair. Therapists can often be seen with in shopping centres, department stores, airports, and health fairs, offering this 20-minute treatment to members of the public. Treatment can also be offered 'on-site' in the workplace, as well as from private clinics. On-site massage is fun to do and to learn, and is of immense value in these driven and stressful times. It is a sequence developed from traditional Oriental Anma and Shiatsu style massage techniques to improve health, energy flow, and reduce tension. Acupressure points are located throughout the body on meridian lines, and are stimulated using finger and elbow pressure with the addition of kneading, percussion, mobilisation, and stretching. This will balance the flow of energy and stimulate the muscular, nervous, lymphatic, immune, and circulatory systems, leaving the client relaxed yet energised. This practical handbook, fully illustrated in colour with photographs and line drawings, takes the reader through the techniques involved.
