Great for Backache and ‘Shoulders like Boulders’
No oil is used as this therapy is done through light clothing. Some people find the more upright position helpful, particularly if they have lower back issues.
Chair Massage is ideal for anyone with a desk or driving job.
Hayley employs many techniques including use of the forearm which ensure a comfortable, yet deep and effective soft tissue massage. Spreading the pressure over a larger area literally squashes the tension out of the muscles. Hayley also uses a variety of helpful massage tools too, e.g. tennis ball and squash ball and gives clients self help tips on how to help tension day to day.
Stress-reducing endorphins and other mood enhancing chemicals are released within the body to help you feel more positive and give a feeling of well-being.
At Hayley’s studio in Belton the chair massage therapy is 45 minutes.
Chair Massage is adapted to your needs and covers the back, shoulders and neck and may also include work on arms and scalp if needed in order to address all areas holding tension.

R E L A X and ‘Chill Out’
It is also an ideal on-site therapy for horse riders.
I am in my mid 50s and have done manual work including building, lifting and driving all my life. I decided to try chair massage as I had been suffering with lower back pain and neck and shoulder tension. I came with a totally open mind as I had never tried anything like this before and have been very pleasantly surprised how much is it helping. I have been coming for four months now and am taking less painkillers. Initially my treatments were fortnightly and now we are doing every three weeks and will soon progress to monthly, then every six weeks.
