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.

Why do I need to be a qualified Massage Therapist?
This is an advanced level course. In it, I detail muscle groups and use massage terms that are usually familiar only to those who have received professional massage and its A&P training.
While the Kneader is easy and instinctive to use without any instruction at all, this course is designed to deliver a chair massage routine to a professional-level. You'll also need to have therapist insurance in order to particpate in this course and practice its moves.
Why do I need two Kneaders and where do I get them?
Many of the moves require symetry, so having two Kneaders mean you can easily do both moves at the same time. You can buy them from us through our Amazon shop, which is the easiest and quickest way to get the Kneaders to wherever you are.
Will I be able to offer chair massage after taking this course?
This course will give you the skills and the routine to be able to offer chair massage using the Kneader. You will, of course, need to add the qualification to your insurance cover before you do. Using the easily-cleaned tool, over clothes in this chair massage may be an attractive option for both therapists and their clients post lock-down.
How do I get the CDP points?
As an experienced therapist, you will be familiar with the requirement of a practical exam. Once you have completed all the course sections and your case studies, we'll do a virtual, real-time practical assessment of you doing the routine. On successful completion of that, you'll be awarded your qualification, which you can submit to either the FHT or Thinktree for the CPD points. Although this is listed as a short course, it's more comprehensive, so you will be awarded 15 CPD points.
What support do you offer?
Lots! We'll be with you all the way by email or on our closed Facebook course group where there will be weekly Q&As, videos and information sharing from myself, students and course alumni.
How long do I get to complete the course?
Unlike other short courses, you'll have access to the online course material for six months, because you can't rush proper learning! However, some therapists may do it faster than others, so you 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a bank transfer option.
When will the price go up?
The course is valued at £250, but we're offering it such a large discount to celebrate our launch and acknowledge that a lot of therapists are having a hard time during the lockdown and its continuing restrictions. We want to encourage our fellow professionals to continue to learn new massage skills and grow their businesses, so we're going to hold this price for as long as we can.

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!
