Frequently Asked Questions – Corporate Therapeutic Massage Packages
Q: What is a chair massage?
A: A chair massage is a 15 minute massage, on an ergonomically designed portable massage chair, that focuses on the high tension areas of the neck, back, shoulders, arms and hands. You sit on the massage chair facing forward, with your head in a face-rest. Chair massage produces therapeutic results quickly by concentrating on the areas of greatest tension.
Q: Are services tax deductible?
A: Probably, based on our tax consultant, but please consult the tax specialist for your organization.
Q: Are oils used during the massage?
A: No oils are used in chair massage. Sometimes a light and absorbent lotion is applied during hand massage. Please let your therapist know if you prefer no lotion.
Q: Do I remove my clothing?
A: No. During a chair massage, you remain fully clothes, though you may be asked to remove a jacket or obstructive jewelry.
Q: What about cleanliness?
A: Before each massage session, massage therapists wash their hands and clean and disinfect the massage chair and face-rest and apply a fresh face-rest cover.
Q: Can I ask for more or less pressure?
A: Yes. Our massage therapists are trained to adapt to a wide variety of body types and sensitivities to pressure.
Q: Will I be tired afterward?
A: Not at all! It is easy to mistake a sense of relaxation for fatigue. In fact, research has shown chair massage recipients to be more alert and focused afterwards.
Q: Are gratuities or tips expected?
