Q. How can we introduce office massage?
Workplace massage can be introduced as a one off, to get staff acquainted or reward them for their performance, however, it is when it’s offered as a regular activity that it achieves the most benefits for employees and business.
Massage can also be used as part of a strategy to relieve physical and mental tension in conjunction with other services such as posture awareness workshops, desk-based exercises and stretches, workstation assessments and yoga & Pilates classes.
As with other wellbeing services for the workplace, workplace massage can be used as prevention for stress and injuries, helping employers meet obligations towards their employees’ health & well-being.
Q. How many treatments may be done on a single day?
We have a six-hour workday. A therapist may conduct 24 treatments in a day with 15-minute windows, and 18 with 20-minute periods. Desk Massage lasts 10 minutes, therefore therapists can do up to 36 sessions each day.
Q. Do you plan on bringing any equipment?
Yes, therapists bring all of the required equipment to your place of business. They provide an unique ergonomic chair, wipes, hand sanitizer, medical paperwork, and music to play for onsite chair massage. There is no need for a chair for a desk massage.
Q. How much room is needed?
The space required for chair massage is minimal; all that is required is a small conference room or an open area of around 2x2m for the therapist to move around during the massage.
Q. How do you arrange an office massage?
It’s all really simple: you need to contact us and make a reservation and we will send a therapist on the day you selected at the time of booking. You just need to set the space, meet the therapist when they arrive, and offer a list of attendees.
Q. What happens during an office massage?
A therapist is sent to the workplace and arrives 20 minutes before their scheduled start time to set up. Before the treatment, the therapist will ask each client to fill out a medical consultation form to check for contraindications and to identify areas that require more focus. Clients feel more relaxed, both physically and psychologically, at the end of the session.
