Chair Amma Massage in the Vosges :

The Chair “Amma” massage has its origins in the principles of traditional Japanese medicine. It means “to calm by touch”.

One of the objectives of this massage is to distribute vital energy and eliminate energy blockages.

It is very effective and recognized in the professional environment for reducing stress and combating musculoskeletal disorders due, among other things, to poor posture at work.

It is very popular for its ease of installation: it requires little equipment (only a specially designed and easy to transport chair), very little space, is received dressed and allows to help any patient with few constraints.

It is also an excellent massage to have in your toolbox to intervene with individuals as a first step towards other longer and more engaging treatments that you already offer.

The Training:

20 hours of certifying training spread over 2 days, residential (the 19th and 20th of november 2022)+ 1 day of assessment and exam (the 21st of december).

During this training, you will learn a complete sequence of 20 to 30 minutes massage, working the entire back, neck, head, arms, hands and pelvis. Sometimes in the role of the model, sometimes of the practitioner, you will feel and understand all the benefits of this massage.

In addition, you will learn to (re)connect with yourself through the practice of yoga along with meditation and you will work on your confidence, intuition, connection to (re)find unity.
