Chair / On-Site / Corporate Massage
On-Site Chair Massage or Corporate Massage provides a 15 – 30-minute acupressure massage on the neck, shoulders, back, head and arms, in an ergonomic chair specifically created for comfort and to be used On-Site at the client’s premises.
During the massage, the recipient is seated and fully clothed. No oil is used. Therefore, no change in attire is necessary.
On-site massage does not require a private room and can be offered in a conference or work room.
Benefits of Corporate Massage:
What can I expect from a chair massage?
During the 20-minute session, the massage therapist will work on your neck, shoulders, back, arms & hands. If you’d like more time spent on one specific area, just let the therapist know.
How much space do you need?
Space requirements are minimal – only a small 5′ x 6′ area is needed for the therapist to set up their massage chair and have enough room to move around comfortably.
Do I remove my clothing?
No, chair massage recipients remain fully clothed. At most, you may be asked to remove any jacket or obstructive jewellery during the massage.
Do you use oils?
No oils are used in chair massage.
What about hygiene?
The therapist will clean & disinfects their massage chair and hands between each massage. Each massage recipient also receives a fresh face-rest cover to ensure cleanliness.
What if I want more or even less pressure?
Just ask! Our therapists are trained to adapt to a wide variety of body types and sensitivities to pressure. The therapist will check in with you during the massage, but never hesitate to let them know your preference.
Can I have the therapist work on just one area?
If you’d like the massage therapist to focus on one specific area just let them know. At the beginning of the massage they will ask if you have any specific concerns. Keep in mind, that the more time spent on this specific area, the less time spent on the other areas.
Will I be tired afterwards?
It’s easy to mistake a sense of relaxation for fatigue. In our experience, however, after a few minutes needed to “re-adjust” to the surroundings – massage recipients are more alert and focused then ever. In fact, research has shown chair massage recipients to be even more alert and focussed than before.
I’m pregnant. Can I still get a chair massage?
Massage can be very beneficial for women during pregnancy. However, be sure to let the massage therapist know you are pregnant so they can assure your safety and comfort.
Are there contraindications for chair massage?
Yes. Medical contraindications include but are not limited to: uncontrolled hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes, fractures, herniated discs, malignancy, numbness or tingling in any part of the body especially the hands and feet. Please inform your massage therapist of any acute or ongoing health conditions before the chair massage.
