Onsite Chair Massage

A chair massage session generally takes place in an office. All offices should have a first aid room, which can provide a private quiet place should this be required. The therapist shall provide you with a 20-minute seated massage in a portable, ergonomic chair. The therapist will focus on the head, neck, shoulder, back, arms, and hands. Each session is done fully clothed with no oil so you and your employees can go right back to work!

Chair massage counters the circulatory problems inherent with office work and provides an appreciated break for employees. Sitting in a massage chair opens up the back muscles, relieves strain on the neck and provides a gentle respite for eyes usually glued to a computer monitor. Even 15 minutes of massage to the head, neck, back, arms and hands can increase circulation, returning energy levels and helping keep the body injury free.

Reasons for Chair Massage:
70% of workers surveyed by a national survey stated that their job is very stressful. Stress is the number 1 cause of disability and costs employers millions of pounds a year due to lost productivity and sickness. Since the workplace is stressful, it seems common-sense to provide some means of stress relief at the workplace. More and more employers are recognising that a regular massage can reduce the physical and mental effects of stress, thus reducing burnout and stress related diseases. There are steps we can take to manage stress.

In addition to this, the increased use of computers in the workplace has resulted in an epidemic of injuries to hands, arms, and shoulders including: Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Cumulative Trauma Disorder. Current prevention techniques are called Ergonomics. Employers have invested a great deal of money in adjustable chairs, wrist rests for typists and methods to vary tasks among employees. On-site chair massage programs are a wonderful, relatively inexpensive addition to the programs offices may already have in place.

A chair massage can bring a fine blissful moment of peace, concentration and renewal of energy. It is a nice, quiet and simple alternative for those who cannot take time out of their busy schedule for a full body massage on a massage table. It can provide a much-needed stress breaks in as little as 15 minutes – the same time taken for most coffee breaks!
