From the MASSAGE Magazine article titled, “Grow Your Practice with Seated Massage Therapy,” by Ralph R. Stephens in the September 2008 issue. Article summary: Seated massage has evolved into a key component of the massage profession. From corporations that utilize on-site massage to lower absenteeism and raise employee moral, to pro sports teams and public venues like health fairs, airports and grocery stores, seated massage is garnering more attention than ever. Now, with the advent of therapeutic seated massage, it is being utilized for clinical applications as well.
