Are you planning an event and looking for a way to make it fun and interesting? Have you thought about hiring a therapist for “chair massage”?
It’s a simple and really popular way to make your next event special and introduce your friends, co-workers and family members to all the benefits of a massage – in a chair!
What is Chair Massage?
It’s exactly what it sounds like – a massage, but in a chair AND fully clothed. Most chair massage services provide short bursts of massage therapy (usually from 5-30 minutes) in a comfortable, supportive and movable chair. The massage chair will be a professional one that’s provided by the massage therapist but as it’s portable it means massages can be carried out just about anywhere, making chair massage perfect for your next event.
With a chair massage there are no oils so there’s no worry about getting it in your hair or messing up your party or work clothes. Because it’s a general massage and not tailored to the client like a normal session would be, a chair massage usually focusses on relieving tension in the upper body (scalp, neck, shoulders, back, arms, and hands) and is designed to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Chair Massage for Workplace Events
Convince your HR department or managers to get a massage therapist in for the next big work meeting or inform them that your next work conference needs chair massage on-site because healthy employees make for a more efficient workplace!
A good chair massage at work can be a great incentive and the benefits of offering a regular chair massage at work include a reduction in the types of physical stress and muscle soreness that can sometimes lead to conditions like Carpal Tunnel or back problems. It gives employees a boost of alertness that improves work productivity, and let’s be honest, it’s a fantastic reason to come in if you’re feeling under the weather, so reduces absenteeism too.
In the long term, by showing employees that you care enough about them to offer a free or subsidised chair massage, employers can reduce staff turnover, improve employee health and generally create a happier, healthier, more productive team – don’t you agree, that’s got to be a good thing?
Chair Massage for Big Family Parties and Get-Togethers
Add chair massage to your next family event – what better way to show your family that you care by adding chair massage to the next big birthday party, wedding or get together?
Having chair massage available for guests will definitely get everyone together, and if the wedding or family party has involved a lot of sitting or standing, people may be stiff and would relish a good massage. It will give the party something different and it’s a way of saying thank you to people for coming J
Chair Massage for Baby Showers
This is the perfect gift for a stressed and probably sore mum-to-be at her baby shower. Provide a chair massage therapist on site and the queue for her or his services is likely to be long with all the mums needing a little me-time.
