On-site chair massage is a treatment specifically designed for the workplace, as seated massage is applied in a specially designed chair that is portable and can be set up anywhere.
The chair is adapted to suit each individual and will allow you to fully relax as it takes pressure off the postural muscles that work constantly when you are in the seated position at your desk, as well as the head and neck.
There is no need to disrobe; no oils or creams are used when the treatments are given. It's quick, clean and easy: ideal for the workplace.
Each person is required to complete a safety form prior to their massage to ensure our therapist is aware of any employee injury or ailment, to best to take care of your staff. Following this, our massage therapists will apply this rejuvenating back, neck, arms, shoulder and head acupressure massage, by applying various techniques as they focus on the upper body.
Towards the end of the treatment, stimulating movements are applied to revitalise you, leaving you feeling invigorated, refreshed and energised.
Your therapist will modify the massage to suit your needs. For example, if you have tight shoulders you may require that they concentrate on this area. They can also vary the pressure depending on your preferences.
The treatments vary in length to suit your needs, but our standard treatments lengths are 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes.
The massage treatment is designed to reduce the build-up of tension in the back, neck and shoulder regions and to help bring about relaxation.
The benefits of onsite massage are numerous and it has been shown to help reduce RSI, relax muscles, reduce tension, ease headaches and eyestrain and relieve aches and pains. More importantly, chair massage treatments have been shown to alleviate the symptoms of stress, so can offer a great relief from the busy workplace, or our busy lives day to day.
After the treatment, we advise you to drink plenty of water and avoid stimulants such as tea or coffee, and encourage deep breathing and plenty of fresh air. At the end of the treatment there is the opportunity to give feedback, either through our feedback system or on the appointment sheet.
On-site massage is an immediately beneficial way of relieving your staff of work-related stress, and a great, cost-effective addition to any staff retention program or employee wellness program. The massages can be given in a vacant office or meeting room, although treatments can easily be given in a quiet corner of a large open-plan.
