Over the last 20 years, we have seen a substantial rise in wellbeing programmes running throughout the country. SMEs, large blue-chip companies, national public bodies and NGOs are all becoming increasingly supportive of their staff, and over those years we’ve teamed up with thousands of organisations to help them tackle workplace stress and make their staff feel truly valued.
When is Massage at Work Week?
This year Massage at Work Week will be running from the 3rd - 9th June 2019, and was founded last year for two main reasons:
- To promote and celebrate the benefits of having massage in the workplace
- To give advice and support the organisations wanting to introduce massage into their workplace
Here at Sense Massage Therapy, we can help to fulfil both of these goals. Whether you’re already a seasoned wellbeing pro with regular mindfulness, yoga or massage sessions booked in your office, a complete massage-at-work newbie, or simply looking for more information, we have the right solution for you. Take a look at the sections below for our simple guide and breeze your way through massage at work week.
What is On-Site Chair Massage?
On-Site Chair Massage is a treatment specifically designed for the workplace, with massages provided in a portable chair that can be set up anywhere and adapted to suit each individual. It is quick, clean and easy: there is no need to disrobe as no oils or creams are used during the massage, and you are able to head straight back to work, energised after your treatment.
Our massage therapists will apply soothing acupressure techniques along the back, neck, arms, shoulders and head in order to relax and rejuvenate each individual. Take a look at our blog for more information on what to expect with office massage.
Why should I get a massage?
The benefits of corporate massage are huge for both employees and employers. From an increase in staff productivity to an instant morale booster, massage can actually save your company money. Employees ultimately give more to companies that look after them, and through investing in your staff, you reduce the chance of losing money through sick days. Keeping your workers happy and motivated is easier than you think, and even a small gesture like workplace massage can do wonders and deliver immediate results.
As for those receiving a treatment, the benefits are significant:
- Reduces stress
- Decreases anxiety and depression
- Boosts energy and morale
- Improves quality of sleep and reduces fatigue
- Lowers blood pressure
- Increases focus and mental clarity
- And much more!
How long does a treatment take?
Treatment lengths can vary to suit your needs, but we typically recommend a 20-minute treatment. We also offer 15 and 30-minute massages and can work around different timings if you have any specific requirements.
How much does it cost?
Our prices are competitive because we specialise in providing quality workplace massage to the masses. All prices below exclude VAT.
1-hour booking = £120.00
2-hour booking (£65ph) = £130.00
3-hour booking (£47ph) = £141.00

Who pays for the office massage?
That’s entirely up to you. Many companies pay for the treatments and can claim this a tax-deductible way of dealing with mental health awareness and stress management in the workplace. Some companies ask staff to contribute towards the cost.
Whatever you choose, our on-line booking system gives companies full visibility of who has booked to allow your HR or payroll team to manage everything smoothly.
