On-Site Chair Massage may be given as a one-time event or provided on an regular basis at your location. All visits are customized to meet the needs of your business or event. I come to your location with the necessary equipment and supplies. Your only responsibilities are to provide a quiet area, a contact person, and to encourage participation. On-site chair massage is non-disruptive, convenient, quick, and cost-effective.
I provide massage for the Boulder-Niwot area, subject to scheduling availability. If I am not available or if you are located elsewhere in the Boulder-Longmont-Denver area, I may be able to find other therapists to meet your needs.
On-site chair massage is an easy way to receive massage. The person receiving the massage remains fully clothed and sits comfortably on a specially designed portable massage chair. No oil is used so there is no mess. Sessions are generally scheduled for 10 to 30 minutes. The massages target relief of stress and improving circulation in the shoulders, neck, and arms. On-site chair massage can provide a way for people who have not had the opportunity to receive massage to have a comfortable first experience.
On-site chair massage is a convenient way to enhance your company's wellness program by actively creating an opportunity to enhance your employees' health. It can:
The benefits of on-site chair massage are immediate and cumulative. Each session targets stress, pain, and improving circulation in the shoulders, neck, and arms. In addition, each session will also focus on each individual's specific needs and requests, such as:
Individual self-care instruction may be given at the time of sessions. Employees with existing injuries are taught how to prevent and minimize muscular disorders from recurring in the future. New employees and healthy workers may be taught prevention and self-care.
It is estimated that between 60 and 90% of all visits to health care professionals are due to stress-related disorders. (Source: "Advances: the Journal for Mind-Body Health," Spring 1989.)
The Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami has documented the positive effects of Massage Therapy on job performance and stress reduction. The research indicates that a basic 15-minute chair massage, provided twice weekly, results in decreased job stress and a significant increase in productivity.

There are many appropriate times to offer on-site chair massage, either on a regular basis or for a special event, such as:
On-site chair massage may also be offered to your clients or customers as an incentive, reward, or thank you.
All services are fully insured through my professional liability insurance coverage sponsored by the American Massage Therapy Association.
The charge for on-site massage is $1.25 per minute of massage. The time spent traveling to and from your location, setting up and taking down equipment, and between massages is not charged (unless your location requires excessive travel time). Companies handle the fees in various ways. Some pay the entire fee, others split the cost with employees, and others provide the space and opportunity but ask employees to pay the full amount. So for example, a 15-minute massage would cost $18.75, a 10-minute massage would cost 12.50. My minimum fee is $150 per on-site visit.
Payment is due at the time of service by cash or check. An invoice will be provided. Special arrangements may be made in advance if your company would like to be billed for receiving ongoing services.
