You’ve been looking for a few ways to improve employee morale in your workplace, have you heard about corporate massage chairs? How about corporate massage chair programs?

What are the benefits of corporate chair massage?

Chair massage programs can bring about a multitude of benefits to your employees and your company as a whole. 95 percent of employees enjoy getting massages. Studies have indicated that employees who receive massages tend to enjoy higher rates of productivity than those who simply rest on breaks instead of receiving a massage. One such study had half of the participants take a 15-minute rest, while the other half received a 15-minute massage. Those who received the massage produced higher rates of creative thinking, and they testified to feeling less fatigued than the other participants.

Furthermore, it should be noted that chair massage are known to reduce stress, and as a result, this tends to lead to lower levels of employee absenteeism. With 50 percent of missed work days being attributed to stress-related circumstances, it’s easy to understand how massages can reduce the number of days your employees don’t come to work.

In addition to reducing stress, when your workers receive massages, they will likely enjoy lower levels of blood pressure. This can go a long way in relieving joint pain, decreasing muscle aches, and some studies have even indicated massages can improve a person’s immune system, making them more resistant to colds and the flu.

On-Site Chair Massage Is Not as Expensive as You Think

When you first think of giving your employees professional massages, it may seem like a costly expense to pick up; however, what you don’t realize is that the massages can cost well under $13 per employee. This is extremely cost-efficient when comparing the money invested to the money that can be saved by reducing employee absenteeism. Your workers are also likely to exhibit higher levels of productivity, which can significantly increase your overall profit levels.

Massage Therapy FAQ’s

The law always requires that you be appropriately covered with sheets or towels to keep you comfortable and warm. If you start feeling uncomfortable or exposed, speak up. Your therapist will respect your wishes and work with you to make the massage session a comfortable one.
No, only undress as much as you are comfortable with. Some people prefer undressing completely, while others prefer to keep undergarments on. You'll have privacy in your massage room to undress before the session and redress afterwards.
How often you should get a massage depends on your massage therapy goals. Some people get a monthly massage to manage stress or to prevent health problems. Others opt for weekly sessions if they need relief from injuries and chronic tension.
Licensing and certification mean that the massage therapist can legally practice massage in your city or state. To get this license, they must have performed several hours of training at an accredited school, passed the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
How much depends on how pleased you are with the service and how much the massage costs (the full price, not any discounted fees). One easy trick is to think about how you would tip a waiter after a similarly priced restaurant meal. This is often 15-20% or more if you received exceptional service.
Let your massage therapist know before the session if there are areas on your body that you don't want touched. They will have the training and experience to give you a therapeutic massage while working around ticklish or sensitive places like your feet or abdomen.
Yes, absolutely. You should always speak up if something is uncomfortable. Secondly, keep the lines of communication open during deep tissue massage or sports injury massages. Your therapist needs the feedback to work on you properly and without aggravating an injury.
On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation, it's often best not to talk unless necessary. This lets your mind as well as your body release tension. With the right mindful breathing technique, you may even achieve a stress relieving meditative state during the massage.
Most likely, unless your doctor says otherwise. Prenatal massage can reduce and relieve common pregnancy issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatic nerve irritation, swelling, tension headaches, heartburn and constipation, and more. Let your massage therapist know that you're pregnant so they can use the right techniques during the session.
If you’re used to Swedish massages, it’s definitely going to feel a little rougher. However, you should always communicate with your massage therapist if the pressure is too much. If you’re tensing up and muscle guarding during a deep tissue massage, the benefits of the massage may be lessened.
It’s important to be realistic about what one deep tissue massage can achieve. Many people want just one session to get rid of all the tension they’ve built up in their body over decades. They ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, all their knots will go away after an hour. They won’t. It’s going to take a few sessions for the best results, based on your body and lifestyle, and increasing the pressure a masseuse uses doesn’t necessarily help. Your problems likely amassed over a lifetime of strain, stress and poor posture. If you have chronic problems, it will probably take a combination of massage, exercise and relaxation techniques to stem the problem.
