The Rise of Corporate Chair Massages

By: Jimmy Sturo

It is no wonder, given these facts, that many corporations have been encouraging chair massages in the workplace.

Corporate chair massages involve the visit of a licensed massage therapist for on-site massage sessions. The therapist brings along a portable massage chair and usually gives 15 to 20 minute massages for all interested employees. Employees enjoy getting a break from the monotony of their day and can go back to work with greatly reduced stress levels.

Corporate chair massages are different from other types of massages. Workers can receive the massage dressed fully in their office attired and the therapist does not use oils or other ointments in the process.

The therapist can target tension-prone areas to relieve the pressure of those who sit at a desk all day.

Companies can choose to offer this as an employee benefit. Some larger corporations will pay the full price of the massage while others pay a portion. The employee is then responsible for the rest of the fee.  Some companies allow therapists on-site but do not contribute the cost. This is becoming one of the most popular employee benefits in addition to traditional benefit packages.

Some studies have even reported that implementing corporate chair massages lowers illness in the workplace. With reduced tension, happier employees and a lower absenteeism rates, it is surprising that every company hasn’t jumped on board the on-site massage bandwagon. 

A massage therapist could probably spend all day informing you of the benefits of corporate massage. It is proven that massages release tension and can help to prevent common neck and back problems. Employees that work with computers for the majority of their day may also suffer from tension headaches.  Massage therapy is also an excellent tool to deal with this and a host of other common ailments.
