Undoubtedly, chair massage service brings an array of benefits to both employees and employers alike. These services can help reduce stress and tension and promote a more relaxed and focused mindset among employees. Chair massage also boosts morale, increases employee engagement, and enhances job satisfaction. Planning a massage day at the workplace shouldn't be a daunting task. To make your corporate massage event a success, the massage experts at Windy City Massage answer some of the most frequently asked questions about how an onsite corporate massage day typically works.

Employer FAQs

How much room will we need for these services?
A chair massage service doesn't require a lot of space. The therapist will only need a small 5 ′ x 6′ area to set up the massage chair and equipment and have adequate room to move around the chair easily.

How should I notify employees?
You can inform your employees about an upcoming event using your internal communication channels such as company newsletters, notices or emails. You can also create a flyer and hang it up in the break room.

How often should we offer employees chair massages?
The frequency of a corporate chair massage depends on various factors, such as the size of your workforce, budget constraints, and employee preferences. That said, it is recommended that you make this productivity-boosting benefit a regular occurrence so your team can maximize rest and relaxation.

How can I promote employee attendance?
Engaging employees and making them enthusiastic about attending a corporate chair massage event requires strategic planning and well-thought-out execution. Here are some tips to boost employee attendance:
  • Send save-the-date notices early: Start building anticipation by sending out save-the-date notices well before the event. Include enticing details about the chair massage event, such as the date, time, location, and special features or perks.
  • Leverage company social media: Utilize your company's social media platforms to create buzz and excitement around the chair massage event. Encourage your workforce to share the posts with their networks to expand reach and generate even more excitement.
  • Highlight the benefits and fun: Communicate the benefits of attending the chair massage event, such as stress relief, improved morale, and overall well-being. You can also share testimonials and quotes from employees who have previously enjoyed similar events to build credibility and enthusiasm. Emphasize the fun aspects of the event, such as soothing music, aromatherapy, and the opportunity to relax and unwind during the workday.
  • Offer incentives and rewards: Consider offering incentives or rewards to encourage attendance, such as raffle prizes, gift cards, or extra time off. More importantly, it creates a sense of friendly competition by offering rewards for the departments or teams with the highest attendance rates.

What benefits do employers get from hosting a corporate massage event?
Hosting a corporate massage in your company helps boost team morale, improve their mental and physical well-being, and enhance productivity. It is a powerful way to demonstrate to employees that you care about their well-being and value their hard work. Ultimately, this improves overall job satisfaction and enhances retention rates. Besides, offering this unique perk can differentiate you from competitors, making it easier to attract top talent.

Employee FAQs

How long will each massage be?
The duration of each chair massage is primarily influenced by your company culture, budget, and the type of event you are planning. A typical in-office workplace massage lasts for 15 minutes. This is adequate time for a therapist to focus on all high-tension areas, including the neck, shoulders, arms, hands, and back. For conventions, trade shows, and events, it is best to start with 10-minute chair massage sessions and adjust based on attendance. For corporate massage, a duration of 20-30 minutes is typically preferred.

Will lotions or oils be used?
No oils are used in chair massage. The therapist may use a light and absorbent lotion during hand massage. Please let your therapist know if you are uncomfortable with lotion or have medical conditions or allergies.

Do I need to remove my shirt?
Not necessarily. Chair massage guests are typically given over the clothes. Since no oils and little lotions are used, you don't need to worry about a sticky, greasy mess on your shirt.

Should I tip my massage therapist?
Tips are not expected or necessary. However, a tip may be an excellent opportunity to show appreciation to the massage therapist for a great job. If you choose to tip, the customary range is typically 10-20%.

What benefits will I see as an employee from my participation?
The benefits of chair massage greatly outweigh other popular office perks, such as snacks. Massage has been proven to reduce feelings of anxiety, stress, and tension. Each treatment employee gets a brief respite during their busy day, allowing them to unwind and recharge. Here are just a few benefits of corporate chair massage:

  • Stress reduction: chair massages can help reduce stress and promote relaxation by targeting areas of tension in the neck, shoulders, back, and arms. This can lead to increased productivity and a more positive outlook on work.
  • Improved morale: providing employees with chair massages demonstrates that the company cares about their well-being, which can boost morale and job satisfaction. Feeling valued and appreciated can lead to higher levels of engagement and loyalty.
  • Physical health benefits: regular chair massages can help alleviate muscle tension and stiffness, improve circulation, and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal problems caused by prolonged sitting or repetitive tasks.
  • Increased energy and focus: by relieving muscle tension and promoting relaxation, chair massages can leave employees feeling more energized and focused, making them more productive throughout the day.
