Corporate events can be a great way to promote camaraderie and unity with a company, as well as court new clients and associates. Because of this, it makes sense to include some added perks and benefits for attending, as well as make it more pleasurable and appealing for all the attendants.
Chair massages are surging in popularity with corporate events right now, and it’s easy to see why. They are easy to accommodate and set up for events, and massages are definitely one sure thing you can provide that nearly every person attending can appreciate. Some attendants might not like the location, activities, or even the catering, but everyone can agree on massages.
What are Chair Massages?
Chair massages are intended to be a quicker, less invasive style of massage that can be completed in a shorter amount of time. Think of it as the faster drive-thru version of a standard massage. While a chair massage is still very much an effective massage, they are not the standard massages that you receive when going to a spa or massage therapist.
These massages use a sort of a portable massage chair, and are designed to be done over a person’s clothes. This typically involves being seated in the chair while facing forward and looking down, resting your face on an extension at the to of the massage chair. This allows for you to have a completely rested neck and back throughout the duration of the massage.
The therapist then provides a 10-15 minute massage, which focuses on high-tension areas like the shoulders, arms, and can relieve neck and back pain. The times can be shortened to accommodate larger groups of people at events and corporate settings if need be.
Chair massages aren’t cheap tricks. They provide many of the benefits of massage therapy. However, although they are shorter in length when compared to other massage styles and techniques and also done over the clothes, the advantages and amazing benefits from a chair massage are undeniable. It’s also worth mentioning that people who might be a little apprehensive or nervous about visiting a full service massage location or simply lack the time to schedule an appointment—can benefit from having a chair massage.
Benefits of Chair Massages for Corporate Events
Chair Massages offer numerous benefits for corporate events in both direct and indirect ways. Corporate events are just as much about image and perception as they are for the functional purposes for having one. Having chair massages set up for attendants shows that you are up to date and privy about current trends, which tend to center around ways relating to to staying healthy and feeling great.
Chair Massages show that you care about employee health and well-being, which can go a long way in boosting morale and improving the moods of everyone attending. Showing employees and prospective clients and associates that you are mindful of employee health and morale can go a long way in improving relationships and attracting more business. Yes, it’s an image boost, but one with noble intentions that benefits all.
To put it primitively, massages make you feel good. That’s the entire point, although the added health benefits are appreciated as well. Having massages available at events helps to make everyone feel better, which leads to a much more relaxed and friendly atmosphere. When you’re dealing with a large group of people, possibly for a few days, this is a very good thing.
Massages are very effective for reducing stress for their recipients, even when they are short. Being overstressed at work or an event can lead to plenty of uncomfortable issues, such as headaches, tension and muscle aches, and yes, bad moods. None of these things are helpful for creating a memorable and successful corporate event. Easing the stress of your attendants sure does, however.
Increased Productivity and Attention Spans
Chair massages can greatly increase productivity and awareness. Issues such as stress, back pain, and headaches can cause distractions for attendants, inhibiting their ability to focus on event activities. Massages offer relief for these issues, which helps to rid of these distractions, and also increases concentration in general.
