How the Kneader works

As an experienced Massage Therapist, you'll know how to give a great massage - and also how much effort that takes!

Save your fingers, hands and/or wrists by letting the tool do the hard work for you.

① The upper arch part of the Kneader is mainly used for Effleurage Compressions or Percussions. You can do a soft, slow move or lean in for deeper pressure.

② The side points are good for deeper movements, like Petrissage, Frictions and Pressure Points, all of which help to release tension in tired or strained muscles. Only focus on small areas and for short periods of time.

③ The smaller, bottom arch is good for Effleurage or Petrissage, especially for smaller areas such as the arms or calves and is particularly good for working in between the shoulder blades and the scapular ridges.

Your Questions Answered

Therapists are always keen to know more about the Course, so here are some of your most frequently asked questions

  • Why do I need to be a qualified Massage Therapist?

    This course is designed to deliver a professional-level chair massage routine. It references details of muscle groups and uses massage terms that are usually familiar only to those who have received professional massage and its A&P training.

  • Why do I need two Kneaders and where do I get them?

    The Kneader is ergonmically designed to fit into the user's palm and become part of their hand. Most established massage moves require the symmetry of using two hands to manipulate an area. The same applies to Kneader Chair Massage! That said, many moves in this routine can be done using one or two Kneaders, either alternately or at the same time, for a deeper, all-over effect. The difference lies in the Kneader's versatility. You can achieve the same effect for any move using several different holds, which we show you, so that you can achieve the best massage both for you and your clients.

    The Kneaders are not included in the course price. You can buy them from us directly, during your course registration process or, if you have an Amazon account, you can buy them via our Amazon.co.uk shop.

  • Will I be able to offer chair massage after taking this course?

    This course will teach you all the Kneader moves, as well as the structure of the full body routine so that you'll be able to offer chair massage using the Kneaders with confidence. It's a great, user-friendly routine that can be broken down into smaller segments to ensure clients get the massage they want. The fact that you can use all the Kneader moves in your other routines to help with deep and/or repetitve moves (as many therapists already do) makes this course even better value for money.

    As a qualified massage therapist, you may, depending on the regulations of the area/country you practice in, need to add this routine and your use of the Kneader massage tool (in this chair routine or as a supplemental tool in your other routines) to your insurance cover as part of your massage practice. Make sure you stay abreast of your professional obligations and contact your insurer to discuss.

  • How do I get the CDP points?

    This is a CPD-approved short course registered with the massage association, Thinktree, which means the course’s learning content has been vetted for quality and professionalism. If you practice in a country or area that recognises continued education points, you can acquire CPD-points either by self-declaration or going through a massage association/governing body. Usually, massage therapy insurers and associations will require a certificate or diploma as proof that you've completed the course.

    If you want a completion certificate (and not everyone does!), you'll need to be assessed, which we’ll do online. You will need to demonstrate that you can perform the Kneader Chair Massage moves and routine, which you can do by filming yourself doing the course moves. Don't worry, it doesn't have to be super fancy, but you'll need either a smartphone or video camera for this (or you can do it in real-time over Zoom or WhatsApp). You can do your assessment(s) in smaller segments as you work through course or in a one-off practical assessment of the full routine at the end of the course. Once again, you choose what works best for you.

  • What support do you offer?

    Lots! We'll be with you all the way by email, our WhatsApp Group or on our course Facebook group where there will be Q&As, videos and information sharing from myself, students and course alumni.

    Even when you've completed the course and are out giving the world great Kneader Chair Massage, you will continue to have full access to our WhatsApp and Facebook groups so that you can progress and share your Kneader knowledge.

  • How long do I get to complete the course?

    You'll have access to the online course material for six months, because you can't rush proper learning! Some therapists may wish to complete the course faster than that and can request an assessment at any time during this period. It's whatever works for you in your own time and at your own pace.

  • I've never studied online before - is it hard?

    Not at all! If you use services like Facebook, then you can follow the course, no problem. You'll need to create a log-in, giving your name, email and a password. You'll need these details to log-in each time you want to access the course material. Once in, you'll see an interface that's easy to use, plus there's even a lesson on how to use the course! However, if you still have issues, you can contact us and we'll be there to help you along.

  • I don't like buying online - can I pay you direct?

    We have an easy-to-use and secure payment system for accepting credit cards. If this is not for you, for whatever reason, contact Una at una@kneadsmust.com and we can arrange a bank transfer option.

  • When will the price go up?

    We will keep the cost down at £49.99 for as long as possible. The course has been valued at £250, but times are still tough after so many lockdowns. We're offering it at such a large discount to encourage our fellow professionals to continue to learn new massage skills and grow their businesses.

    Kneader Chair Massage is an award-winning massage routine and we want to get it out out there with as many therapists as we can. We hope you'll do this course and come to share our vision.

Why I designed the Kneader and how this course came about

When I designed the Kneader massage tool, I wanted to make a body massage tool that could do all the main massage moves easily and effectively for my massage clients to use at home, in-between their professional treatments. When I started trialling the tool with fellow massage therapists, I realised that Kneader was a great tool for professional therapists too.

Therapist injury is a big issue in our industry. The Kneader can help save therapists' thumbs, fingers or wrists by taking the strain out of deep or reptitive moves.

Therapists of all massage disciplines have been using the Kneader as a supplemental tool in their treatments for years. In 2015, I decided to design a chair routine that was done entirely with two Kneaders, because they work so well over clothes and I LOVE chair massage. That's when Kneader Chair Massage was born! I've been doing mobile corporate and events massage successfully since then, and the business and its clientele keeps growing.

In 2017, I took the Kneader Chair Massage routine to the World Massage Championships in Copenhagen and won a silver medal in the chair category. In 2019, Kneader Chair Massage won a bronze in the UK National Championships in London. The Kneader massage tool has also won industry design awards, so we're definitely doing something right!

That’s why I’ve created this Kneader Chair Massage online course - it's too good a routine to not share with other massage therapists. This professional massage course is only open to qualified Level 3 and above massage therapists. It's currently accredited with Thinktree and the FHT and insurable with international insurers like Holistic Insurance, Towergate and Balens. You'll get those all-important CPD points AND an exciting and exclusive way of doing chair massage. Once you learn to use the Kneader in the chair routine, you'll find ways of using it in all your massage work.

The Kneader Chair Massage training is different from pretty much any other massage course out there.

This online course will provide you with a comprehensive, step-by-step guide that begins with industry guidelines for your massage practice, though the massage routine itself, followed by some ideas on how the Kneader and its chair routine can further your business' earning potential.                  

The Kneader Chair Massage training is created with busy massage therapists like you in mind. 

This is an online course that you can do in your own home and to suit your busy schedule, saving you a lot of time and money in travel costs. You can go through the whole thing in one go, or you can pick and choose modules as and when you need them, so that you become confident in using the Kneader on your terms. You will get access to the entire online content for six months, so that you can continue refreshing your knowledge until you make the Kneader Chair routine your own. You will also have unlimited access to all the Kneader Chair Massage online groups going forward. Kneads Must values education and wants you to continue to share knowledge and content on this great chair massage routine for as long as you want to!
