our 5 top tips for getting the most out of seated massage at your workplace
- Location. Holding the massages in a meeting room or quiet place ensures that each employee gets time out without any interruptions. This optimises the therapeutic experience and ensures employees come out of the massage feeling more productive.
- Communication. Communicate openly about how strong you’d like your massage pressure. Would you prefer strong, medium or gentle? As a guideline the pressure of the massage should be firm yet comfortable. If it feels like “good pain”, that’s fine as your muscles will be responding to the increase in circulation. Let your massage therapist know if you’d like them to adjust the pressure being applied. It’s your massage so we want you to get the most out of it.
- Health concerns. Let the massage therapist know if you have any health concerns, e.g. a shoulder injury, or would like to focus on a specific area of your body. Our massage therapists are professionals dedicated to tailoring a session that will help relieve your discomfort.
- Relax! We encourage minimal talking during the massage. This can be a wonderful opportunity to close your eyes, relax, and observe how your body feels in the present moment. However, some people find chatting helps them unwind, in which case our massage therapists are happy to oblige.
- Stay hydrated. After the massage, make sure you keep hydrated. Working on your muscles gets fluid pumping out of the soft tissue and into your circulatory system, where it heads toward your kidneys. You need to replenish all that lost water after the massage. Drink a glass of water or have some herbal tea.

Medical research, indicates that a basic 15 minute chair massage, provided twice weekly, not only decreased job stress but significantly increased the amount of work productivity.
A recent study gave one group of workers a 15 minute rest and another a 15 minute massage. The group that received the massage performed significantly better on complicated tasks like math problems.
