Hi all

I'm trained in just about all areas except massage but would like to add seated/chair massage to my service menu (my business is mobile). I've been making enquiries about courses and have had some mixed messages. If I want to learn back, neck and shoulder massage (and maybe scalp), to be performed on a chair, do I need to do a specific chair massage course? Or, as one training provider told me, could I do an IHM course? I don't know what to pick! Thanks x

I love doing IHM but never found it popular. It was only ever useful when I did fairs and corporate events. I just used a standard folding lightweight chair. For seated massage - check with your insurer. Some may not insure you if you do not do the appropriate course. Having experienced both massages as a client, I much prefer the seated massage, it feels more like a total treatment than the IHM.
