Monthly Chair Massage: A Workplace Dream
Liz Garrison, LMT Nov 10, 2014
Chair massage is a quick and easy way to have a quick, stubborn knot taken out or relax while at the airport or during a long road trip. Because chair massage is clothed, it can be done almost anywhere, from farmer’s markets to health fairs and even more commonly at work.
Corporate chair massage is the fastest growing segment of the chair massage business. It is an employee benefit that employees like and helps with morale, as well as, issues such as carpel tunnel and low back pain from sitting too long at a desk.
In an article by Andrea Cespedes on LiveStrong.com, she references Dr. Tiffany Field at the University of Miami who finds that in just 10 minutes, blood pressure and heart rate decrease from a simple massage.
The massages can be employer or employee paid but, many companies are footing the bill to bring in a therapist or two and offer the sessions as an employee benefit. With most massage outlets willing to provide the service, a therapist is easy to find, and costs are competitive.
Here are 10 reasons to request chair massage in your office:
1-Relieves tension and stress

3-Can treat carpal tunnel and neck tension
