Corporate massage including business onsite chair massage is an incredible benefit for employers to offer, especially during labor shortages. It's the perfect wellness perk. Chair massage has a number of healthy benefits and is likely to boost employee morale and performance.
The following is a 2011 research study to review when considering chair massage at a workplace. The research title of this published study was called: The Effect of a Corporate Chair Massage Program on Musculoskeletal Discomfort and Joint Range of Motion in Office Workers by Polona Kršmanc Šiško, Mateja Videmšek, Damir Karpljuk.
The study stated: “Between the first and the last measurements, a significant increase in range of motion was found for cervical lateral flexion and cervical extension. A significant decrease in Musculoskeletal Discomfort was found in the neck and the upper back.
On-site massage sessions twice per week for 1 month are the most effective interventions (compared to one session or no massage intervention) for decreasing the duration of musculoskeletal ache, pain, or discomfort and for increasing range of motion.”

These are incredible health benefits to achieve during a chair massage. Massage is well known to relieve pain, and this study showed that pain relief was achieved even when the client was massaged in a seated position.
Improving range of motion is also associated as an aid to decrease pain. Improving range of motion may help an employee with their physical function at work as well.
Chair massage is a wonderful way for LMTs to meet new clients. It is great for a quick session during work. It can also be performed clothed so the client does not have to disrobe at work to receive their chair massage appointment.
