What we love about corporate chair massages is it gives us an opportunity to reach individuals who would not consider massage therapy as part of their overall health program. It also gives us an opportunity to share with them how regular massages can help improve their state of health. We are able to point out, why they have neck or lower back pain and what actions they can take to alleviate their painful symptoms. Their most common response is, “oh I did not know that but that makes a lot sense, thank you!”

We offer some simple solutions that they can do anywhere and with little or no equipment necessary.Massage Techniques UsedMany occupations involve strenuous lifting or repetitive movements that can cause repetitive strain injuries over time. Deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy is the massage technique most commonly used in corporate chair massage to relieve the pain caused by severe muscular tension, stress and injuries. We apply these techniques over clothes and without any draping. Each session is done fully clothed with no oil so you and your employees can go right back to work!We use a substantial amount of sustained pressure to specific pain points in the body. These points are very closely associated with acupuncture points and recipients of deep tissue massage often find that their pain is replaced by a sense of relaxation and a relief from painful joints and muscles. This type of massage can be intense and stress-relieving at the same time but we are very careful to communicate and check-in with each person.
