On-Site Chair Massage

On-site chair massage is a short, seated massage which:

  • Comes to your workplace, or event
  • Lasts from 5 to 30 minutes, uses no oil, and takes place with the person fully clothed
  • Usually covers the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands and can be adapted to special needs
  • Leaves people feeling relaxed, refreshed and ready for the rest of their day

A portable massage chair, designed for comfort and support, is often used.  It is supplied by the massage therapist and can be set up and dismantled quickly in almost any location.


It's easy to set up and run

  • Assign a contact person.  He or she will help the massage therapist set a schedule, publicize the program, and sign people up.
  • Provide space.  A conference room, break room, or a quiet corner is fine.  After the day's sessions, the space can return to normal use.
  • Encourage everyone to take advantage of it.  Make sure people are informed and you support it, and don't forget about using it yourself.


Cost effective? YES!

On-site chair massage is quite affordable.  Because it is shorter then a regular massage, it costs proportionately less.  Ask your massage therapist for an exact price since cost varies by location. 


It excels as a wellness program

  • It's convenient.  No need to change clothes, shower, or leave to participate
  • Results are immediate
  • It's easy and safe.  No special fitness level or training is required to receive a massage
  • Effects are cummlative.  Consistent use reinforces the benefits
  • People enjoy it. 
  • It encourges other steps to wellness.  Regular massage helps people feel better and can motivate them to take care of themselves with diet, exercise or other lifestyle changes.

It's a versatile benefit, too

Once on-site chair massage is in place, you may find it is also a great way to recognize birthday or service anniversaries, provide incentive awards for good attendance or an accident-free period, or give a bonus for achieving objectives.  These uses are also an ideal way to try on-site chair massage without an ongoing commitment.  Today stress is a fact of life, and the workplace is no exception.  Deadlines, rapidly changing technology, and unavoidable interpersonal conflicts are just a few of the stresses workers cope with daily.  The effects of stress are cumulative and, without time to relax and recharge, can lead to:

  • Headaches, backaches, eyestrain, neck pain
  • Repetitive use injuries such as tendinitis or carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Listlessness, poor concentration, anxiety, depression, irritability, or anger
  • Lowered resistance to colds and infections, high blood pressure, ulcers and heart disease
  • Physical and emotional exhaustion, also known as "burn-out"


Stress costs you money

Stress on or off the job costs U.S. workplaces an estimated $200 billion a year in reduced productivity, accidents, compensation claims, absenteeism, employee turnover, health insurance and medical expenses.  This is more than the after-tax profits of the Fortune 500 companies, and 10 times the cost of all strikes combined.  Recent studies show:

  • Up to 90% of all visits tp primary care physicians are for stress-related complaints
  • Up to 80% of industrial accidents are due to stress
  • Over 50% of lost work days are stress related
  • 14% of workers say stress caused them to quit or change jobs in the previous two years
  • Workers' compensation awards for job stress threaten to bankrupt the system in some states.

On-site Massage can help!

For a decade, on-site chair massage has been effectively relieving stress in the workplace for everyone from CEO's to hourly workers.  On-site chair massage works because it:

  • Reduces muscle tension and the pain it causes
  • Calms the nervous system and increases circulation, which boosts energy and alertness
  • Helps employees identify and release tension on their own before it becomes a problem
  • Provides a complete change of pace so the body and mind can relax and rejuvenate
