What is a chair massage?

A client sits in a specially designed massage chair and remains fully clothed during the massage. Different massage techniques are applied on the neck head, shoulders, arms and hands, along with a few stretches at the end of the session. Clients report feeling both relaxed and refreshed, ready to take on the day.

Sessions are usually short, between 10 - 30 minutes, and can be customized if you’d like more focus in one of those areas. Always let a therapist know about historical injuries or structural issues, and if you are pregnant.

What are the benefits of offering chair massages at your company or event?

On-site chair massages are perfect way to congratulate work well done, celebrate meeting company goals, create consistent employee appreciation, attract talent, end a stressful project, enhance holidays, and much more. At sales or marketing events, let a massage chair draw people to your booth, or invite us to your press room. Helping people feel better is a great way to build relationships and create trust.

They WILL feel better, we are sure. On-site chair massages happen in your own office so it’s easy for people to feel comfortable to get away from their desks. Clients are consistently amazed at how good they feel after a short session and generally feel refreshed and eager to back to work. Work/life balance, attendance, productivity, clear thinking are just some of the benefits.
