Once we’ve organised your special day, here’s what you can expect. Your friendly, qualified and insured massage therapist will arrive punctually to the office ready to treat your staff as per your requirements. If equipment is brought along, it will be promptly set up in a quiet place along with aromatherapy and music, where each staff member can then take their turn engaging in a session of blissful relaxation. For a “roaming” desk massage, the therapist will approach each staff individually and ask them if they would like a massage before proceeding.
Corporate massage is so easy and convenient to set up for your company. It doesn’t matter if you have never organised a corporate massage session before or have no idea of what you’re after. Feel free to call us or drop a line on our website enquiry form! We’d love to have a chat to discuss some options for you and assist in improving staff health & wellbeing.
Following from our previous post on the styles of corporate massage, today we’ll introduce the types of corporate massage sessions that your company can look into.
Corporate massage is all about offering comfort, convenience and choice to you. You can choose to offer a quick 5 or 10 minute neck and shoulder rub for staff at their workstations. If time permits, you can also consider longer massage options up to 30 minutes to transport your staff to a relaxing, tranquil place, so they can be really refreshed and energised.
Corporate massage is great as a one-off reward or an inclusion in a corporate event. Your staff can also reap longer-term benefits with regular massage sessions, whether they are weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly. With regular corporate massage, you will notice an improvement in staff morale and general wellbeing. Staff will be excited to be at the office and rewarded for their hard work!
Corporate massage at the workplace is a fantastic way to motivate and reinvigorate staff. Occasionally, we get asked about how this wonderful health initiative works, so in the next few posts, we’ll take the opportunity to explain the nitty-gritty of the corporate massage options you can offer to your company.
1) Corporate Seated Massage
With this type of massage, we have the massage therapist bring in a professional portable massage chair into a quiet space in your office where they can work their magic for your staff.
2) Corporate Desk Massage
For some offices, having the massage therapist “roaming” from desk to desk may be more suitable for busy companies where staff don’t have much opportunity to leave their workstations.
3) Corporate Table Massage
If your company is keen on truly treating and rewarding staff, a longer table massage could be ideal. This can take place with or without oils in a separate room, where the therapist can assist with alleviating all the aches and pains from a heavy work day!
1. Our office is pretty noisy and cramped, where would you do the massage?
Board rooms or meeting rooms are usually the best places as the doors can be closed to block out any office noise. We create a calm, inviting space with essential oils and soft relaxing music. Your employees will be more likely to relax in a private setting, away from distractions, than if the massage was at their desk. If you don’t have a board room, partitions can be used to create a room in a quieter area of the office space or in the lunch room.
2. How long does the massage go for?
Our therapists are very experienced in providing seated massages and can do massages from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.
Ideally, we recommend 10-15 minute seated massages as this allows enough time to relax and work on areas of the body which have more tension.
We focus on the areas of the body which people working at a desk experience the most tension or pain; the neck, shoulders, lower back, arms and hands.
We tailor a corporate massage to suit your office environment, your time constraints, and the number of employees you have.
3. What type of chair do you use?
Our therapists have professional quality massage chairs and tables which they bring with them.
The massage chair is lower than an office chair and allows the client to lean forward and relax into the chair. Even sitting in the chair is relaxing and allows the therapist access to the spine to work on tight muscles.
As the start of 2012 becomes a distant memory it’s time to think about planning Workplace Health Initiatives.
Many organisations simply repeat what they have or have not been doing in previous years. Perhaps they tried Pilates or Corporate Massage a few years ago but that was then.
Isn’t there a new health & wellness fad that the HR department can implement?
What does your company do? Am I being unfair in my description of how some organisations operate?
I would love to hear your thoughts & comments.
We at Massage2Motivate in 2012 will continue providing exceptional Corporate Massage Services. As our regular clients grow we invite you to consider booking a regular seated massage for your staff each month or fortnight.
Your staff will love it and it’s so easy to organise, whether you have 10 or 1000 staff we have the capability to ensure the experience will be unforgettable and fun.
In case it’s been a while we can organise 5-20 minute office massages either in a separate room or at your workstation and it’s so reasonably priced.
Just remember all our mobile massage therapists are fully qualified and insured.
We look forward to uplifting your staff in 2012.
Happy New Year from all the staff at Massage2Motivate.
Business can be challenging, some organisations find it difficult to provide simple benefits to their staff. While an extremely beneficial therapeutic massage at work may seem expensive, it’s actually a really cost-effective way to reward and motivate your staff. Office massage doesn’t require a lot of space and the massage is provided whilst the recipient is fully clothed. In a 5 to 20 minute session an office massage can do wonders for staff motivation and productivity plus there is a real physical benefit.
Office Massage Can Help Relieve Stress
Many workplace environments can be stressful particularly as we approach the end of the financial year. From challenging deadlines to demanding customers, workers throughout Australia need to de-stress and unwind, if only for a few minutes. Luckily office massage can provide employees with a special moment every week, fortnight or month in the busy working environment.
The Massage2Motivate method:
Office massage begins when the Massage2Motivate therapist arrives 10-15 minutes before the session start time. Once the employee is seated comfortably (and fully dressed) in the chair, our massage experience begins. Our fully qualified and insured therapist uses skilful muscle manipulation to relax that tense and knotted feeling. The therapist may also use pressure point therapy.
Corporate Massage works and has noticeable results
Even though the benefits of office massage therapy might sound rather “new age,” there’s no question that the ancient art of massage has a long and successful history when it comes to relieving muscle aches, reducing tension and stress, improving mental clarity and increasing productivity for employees all over the Australia.

Many Australian companies are now providing regular massage sessions at work as an investment to their employees’ health and wellbeing. Office massage has become increasingly popular. Office massage can relieve stress in the workplace, it can improve workers’ health and it can create a better and more productive environment in the office. Back pain and stress are some of the most common causes of sick leave in Australia. Absenteeism due to back problems and stress-related conditions is estimated to be costing Australian companies billions of dollars every year whilst stress is one of the leading causes of staff absences in the workplace.
Regular office massage sessions are an easy and cost-effective way to promote employee wellbeing and to reduce work-related stress. This in turn can help to prevent absenteeism and to increase productivity.
So, what is office massage? In a typical workplace massage session a massage therapist comes to the office with a specifically designed massage chair. The recipient of the massage sits in the chair comfortably and fully clothed. No oils are used, which makes seated chair massage a convenient option for the workplace. A staff member usually receives a massage that can lasts between 5 & 20 minutes, longer and shorter sessions are available as well.
The massage focuses on the neck, the head, the back and the shoulders, the arms and the hands. The sequence used in office massage can help to relieve muscular tension, ease pain in the neck and the shoulders, de-stress and relax, but also re-energise so that the employee returns to his or her desk rejuvenated and focused. As the massages are relatively quick office massage is not one of those treatments that can leave you too relaxed to work. A brief seated massage can help to clear the mind and can make one feel more alert than before.
So how employees benefit from office massage? A chair massage can ease tension and pain in the neck and shoulders and prevent headaches caused by tension and stress. Many office workers suffer from chronic tension and pain in the neck and shoulder area and frequent massage sessions at work can help to relieve even long-term pain. Regular massages can also being used to prevent repetitive strain injuries, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome, all very common conditions in the workplace today.
A regular massage is one of the most enjoyable ways to prevent stress at work. The massage chair can be placed in a separate room or in a corner where it will not disturb other workers. A chair massage does not require more time than a coffee break, but offers many more health benefits.
Regular office massage sessions can improve employee health and wellbeing which in turn can improve productivity, reduce sick days caused by back pain or stress, boost morale and improve worker loyalty. A relaxed team of employees works better and achieves better results than one that is under constant stress. Massage days at work are also an easy way to enhance a company’s public image as an employer of choice that cares for its workers.
Several studies have found that massage can ease stress and anxiety, reduce stiffness and pain in the body and even control blood pressure. As stress and back pain are some of the most common causes of sick leave in Australia regular massage sessions can be a cost-effective way to improve productivity and reduce sick days.
How often should a company offer massage at work? Some companies arrange weekly massage sessions for the staff whilst others prefer a monthly massage session for their employees. Some of our clients invite us to the workplace for special events.
Companies that have engaged Massage2Motivate have noticed how regular sessions can improve employee morale, productivity and performance. When employees feel they are being looked after, they also remain more loyal to the company and create better results.
