Chair massage is a specialty; it is not table massage “lite.” Developed and refined since 1986, the TouchPro chair massage technique is the most popular in the world. Whether you learn at a seminar or in our online training program, you are assured time-tested and in-depth instruction.
Since 1982, TouchPro founder, David Palmer, has been promoting the benefits of positive touch through seated massage. “David may not have been the first to discover Chair Massage, but, like Columbus, there is no doubt that he was the first to put it on the map.” That was the perspective of Scott Lamp, President of the American Massage Therapy Association, in November 1997, when he honored David Palmer with the prestigious President’s Award for his contribution to the massage profession.
In 1997, Massage Magazine hailed David as the “father” of contemporary Chair Massage for the development of the first professional massage chair and for the significant role that he has played in the growth of one of the most ubiquitous segments of the bodywork services industry. In 2007, David was inducted into the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame.
