- Participation – 99% of your employees will take part in a chair massage program, study after study has shown this to be true.

What is onsite corporate chair massage
Massage Therapist bring special chairs designed for the massage to your office to treat your employees and staff to massage without anyone needing to leave the office. There is typically a charge per minute involved and people can either pool their funds together or the management may foot the bill for the service to be done.
What are the benefits of chair massage?
There are many benefits to be had from a chair massage. This becomes, even more, the case within a corporate setting. Here are just a few:
- Lowers anxiety
- Increases productivity
- Increases circulation
- Boosts immunity
- Improves morale
- Lowers BP
- Relieves headaches
- Reduces muscle pain
- Decreases stress
- Improves sleep
- Increases flexibility
How much does a corporate chair massage cost?
In research, I saw someone suggest that you will pay $60 per hour for corporate chair massage. Technically, they are correct though I prefer to look at it as a $1 per minute proposition. The reason is that corporate chair massage can be funded by the business bringing in the activity or by individuals pooling their funds together for the service. If 4 people pitch in $15 each for the massage therapy that still equals $60 but everyone receives the service at a substantially reduced rate. For the record, depending on what you are hoping to accomplish from your corporate chair massage some people pay as much as $100 hourly. Call around to find the best rates available.

Even a brief chair massage visit can significantly improve employee problem-solving abilities. A recent study in American Psychologist gave one group of workers a 15-minute rest, and another, a 15-minute massage. The group that received the massage performed significantly better on complicated tasks like math problems. Massage also improves creative thinking and relieves fatigue. It’s better than a cup of coffee!
In addition, by lowering stress, workplace massage helps eliminate absenteeism, making your team more competitive. “Massage addressed the symptoms of stress,” says Bruce Kelly, a consultant with William M. Mercer, the benefits firm, about massage at one company. “It offers people relief and helps them perform better.”
The number of companies that offer massage to lower stress and improve productivity is growing every year. So, do such people-friendly policies result in higher revenues? You bet, says Fortune Magazine. In fact, Eddie Bauer, one of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, provides on-site massage twice a week at corporate headquarters.
In addition, by lowering stress, massage helps eliminate absenteeism, making your team more competitive.
Improve Health With A Regular Chair Massage Program In The Workplace
A corporate chair massage program can help keep your employees healthy as well as happy. Massage has been shown to reduce blood pressure, relieve arthritis, improve joint and muscle aches especially in painful areas of the neck and back, and even increase immunity to colds and flu! In addition, massage can play a very important role in preventing and treating the pain and numbness associated with excessive keyboard and mouse use.
Improve Well-Being And Reduce Employee Stress
Stress-related employee turnover, absenteeism, and waning morale all affect the bottom line. Job stress and related problems cost companies an estimated $200 billion or more annually, based on information from the American Institute of Stress and the American Psychological Association.
Our clients tell us that after our visits they can feel the morale lift in the office. Our corporate massage techniques measurably lower the day to day stress of the competitive workplace. Relaxed workers are more likely to cooperate with each other, and lowering stress lowers both anxiety and hostility, improving the work environment for everyone.
Enhance Employee Hiring And Retention Activities
No matter what the economy, valuable workers can take their pick of jobs. With the sky-rocketing costs of health insurance, many companies struggle to find benefits to help attract and retain employees. Chair massage programs increase job satisfaction and create a caring environment that employees appreciate.
Massage creates a positive workplace culture, and lets employees know you really care about their well-being.
Deal With A Crisis Or “Crunch” Time
Massage can help your team get through a demanding time or reward them for their extra effort. A number of our customers use massage to relieve the stress of restructuring, moving, budget season, or other hectic times of the year. Others call us in to help keep everyone healthy and on the job when a deadline or product launch is causing stress.
