Corporate chair massage can be performed in the open work environment or can be performed in private room such as conference or work room. The massage therapist uses a massage chair in the office. Selection is dependent upon the client’s comfort and space available in the environment. Most massage sessions last between 10-15 minutes, but can last longer, and the employee is fully clothed. The massage therapist uses techniques that focus on the upper part of the body – neck, head, shoulders, back, and arms.
The ultimate goal of corporate chair massage is to help create a healthy and more peaceful work environment by reducing stress levels at work. Increased stress levels can increase anxiety, headaches, lower self-esteem, irritability, back pain, exhaustion and poor concentration.
