Chair Massage Frequently Asked Questions

Chair massage is a relaxation massage performed on a portable massage chair with the client fully clothed. There are many benefits of chair massage, including but not limited to, stress reduction, improved circulation, relief from chronic pain, enhanced relaxation and sleep.

Chair massage for seniors is customized to their unique needs and preferences. Massage is particularly helpful to increase circulation and mobility for senior clients. Additionally, it is ideal for clients that are challenged with chronic pain, stress, and a sense of isolation.

On average, most students (even those working full time) are able to complete all their requirements for certification within 30 days.

  • Academic Phase – Involves completing the Anatomy & Physiology Academic Module and pre-course modules through an online system prior to coming to the Classroom Phase. (approximately 15 hours)
  • Classroom Phase – For the Short & Sweet Chair Massage Course, you’ll be in class on Friday evening, 7:00 – 9:00 pm and then Saturday & Sunday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. For the full chair massage training program, you will be in class from Monday to Saturday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm each day.
  • Skills Development Phase – You will complete 20 documented massages and the 20th massage is videotaped by the student and sent to their instructor for assessment.

We are pleased to be registered with PTIB – Private Training Institutions Branch – Our programs are also registered with ESDC – Employment and Social Development Canada. This enables us to provide Federal Tuition T2202A Tax Receipts to our students.

Our Chair Massage Training Program is recognized by the NHPC –Natural Health Practitioners of Canada 

We are an Approved CE Provider with the NCBTMB – National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork – – and our Quick Start Chair Massage Course qualifies students for 12 CE credits. 

If you have not completed your skill development phase within two months, you will be required to apply for a re-assessment for $100. The only exception is official medical notice, in writing. A certificate of course completion will be issued when Integra College receives your completed skill development forms and full payment of tuition fees.

The Online Academic Training Module was designed based on our students having no previous background in anatomy and physiology. The module helps to build a base of knowledge prior to the Classroom Phase. Having an introductory exposure to the structure and systems of the body will help make your massage more effective; and will give you a greater appreciation for the profound effect massage can have for clients.

Each section is followed by a multiple choice quiz and you will need to achieve a passing mark of 70%. If you don’t achieve at least 70% the first time, you can review the section and re-take the quiz.

We have had students from 18 to 75 do very well performing chair massage. The key is proper body positioning and bio-mechanics. We teach and emphasize correct body posture throughout the massage routines. We also teach effective techniques for taking care of your body in between and after massage sessions.

A chair massage practitioner has a lot of career flexibility. After you have completed the program and have your liability insurance in place you can start working immediately. You can choose to focus specifically on providing chair massage in seniors’ communities, the workplace, festivals, shopping malls, or while travelling and so on.

If you like the idea of working with other chair massage providers, you can join our Integra Chair Massage Event Team and participate in festivals, sports events, farmer’s markets, trade shows and conferences as part of a team! 


Chair massage is more than just a great way to enter into a career in health and wellness. It’s also a great way to make a healthy living. Because of the flexible nature of the profession, how much you make depends on whether you choose to work for yourself or someone else. The standard rate for a 15 minute chair massage is $20 and a chair massage provider can comfortably perform 3 – fifteen minute sessions per hour and 4 hours per day. If you work for yourself you can potentially make $60 per hour and if you work for someone else, $25 to $30 per hour. Most Chair Massage Providers choose to work 1 to 3 days per week.

Chair massage opens many doors. It is the most time and cost-efficient way to get started in massage and bodywork. It easily leads into a variety of health and wellness modalities, such as Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Shiatsu, Jin-Shin Do, Hot Stone Massage, Massage and Senior Wellness Practitioner, to list a few.
