Chair Massage

Chair massage is done while the client is fully clothed and seated in a specially designed chair. Work is done over the clothing, without oils or lotions, on the neck, back, shoulders, and sometimes arms and hands. Sessions usually last between 5 and 30 minutes, with 10 minutes being the most popular length of time requested. Even a short chair massage has amazing results!

Many private businesses will hire a massage therapist to provide chair massage for the employees. Sometimes the company picks up the cost, and sometimes the employees pay the therapist directly. You'll often see chair massages at airports, malls, and stores such as Whole Foods Market. Studies have found that employees who receive regular chair massages at their job have greater morale, take fewer sick days, have less turnover, and return to their desk with less muscle tension and have greater productivity. In most places in the U.S., chair massage costs $1.00/minute.
