It is a massage treatment specially designed for the workplace. The technique originated in Silicone Valley, US. Often described as the "Coffee break massage", it was intended to boost morale and relieve stress amongst hardworking office staff.
The treatment is aimed at reducing the build up of tension in muscles used in isometric contractions (the muscles used to keep you still whilst working at a desk). It also aims to reduce stress and give you a feeling of well-being. The results can be seen immediately.
The treatments vary on cost depending on many things, that's why Sense has an instant price quoting system right here on our web site.

The treatments are usually 20 minutes long, although this can vary. In addition to the treatment time 5 minutes is usually taken to allow a consultation with our therapist before any treatment is given. This ensures your complete safety. The treatment is given through the clothes and no oils or creams are used, providing the maximum benefit with the minimum of disruption.
We would normally recommend a quiet vacant office or meeting room, although treatments can easily be given in a quiet corner of a large office.
You can have a therapist to treat just one person if you wish. The optimum number of people per therapist is 12. The maximum depends on how many therapists you would like (and have room for).

In short, no. The treatment is designed to relax the client during the first 15 minutes. The remainder of the treatment is based on stimulating the senses and leaves you feeling alert and focused.
Ideally both. We recommend that for regular treatments the company pays most of the cost and the employee pays a nominal sum. This is to make sure people don't book treatments and forget to turn up. Saying this, each company is different and this matter should be discussed prior to setting up a long term agreement.
