Corporate Massage Programs

Body Techniques has specialized in corporate massage programs for more than 20 years. We recruit and train the best massage therapists in the nation to ensure a wonderful and professional experience. Our focus on quality has helped us amass a wide variety of clients across the country, including Google, Microsoft, and IBM.

Our easy-to-implement programs are competitively priced, and our software allows us to report utilization statistics and ROI of the program to leadership. Massage therapy has numerous benefits – some of which include stress relief, better sleep, reduced muscle tension, and decreased migraines. It is particularly effective in addressing depression which has become the number one factor in lower productivity rates.

Our programs work best when companies:

  • Subsidize at least 50% of the cost of the program. We find these companies view massage as an employee benefit, and the lowered cost to employees impacts participation greatly. If the cost of a 15-minute massage is $10 or less to an employee, then we guarantee the program will be a success. We know employees want subsidized programs. When there is a subsidy in place, we see a jump in utilization from 50-60% up to 85-95%.
  • Have at least enough space for a chair massage. We find that programs work best when there is a dedicated area that employees associate with the massage program. At the least, we need a place to set up a massage chair!

About Our Corporate Massage Programs

Our massage programs typically center on these three massage therapy types:

Often called “corporate massage,” this is the most convenient method of delivering onsite massage therapy and is provided using specially designed massage chairs. It promotes better circulation, muscle stimulation and stress relief. The technique reduces tension in the back, neck, shoulders, head, arms, and hands. Chair massage is for employees who work at computers or spend extended time driving, lifting, or standing.
Using a series of techniques, practitioners apply rhythmic finger pressure, gentle rocking, stretching sequences and deep structural work to achieve a relaxed and balancing effect in the body. This technique also helps improve circulation and mental acuity. It offers a profound employee experience.
Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex points on the hands and feet that correspond to each structure of the body. Our therapists apply gentle pressure to the reflex points, facilitating a free flow of energy that creates a state of balance and deep relaxation in your employees.

If you’re looking for a unique, customized experience for your employees and have a designated massage room on site, we can design a massage program from a wider range of massage styles, including:

Acupressure uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure can be effective in helping relieve headaches, eye strain, sinus problems, neck pain, back aches, arthritis, muscle aches, and tension due to stress. There are also great advantages to using Acupressure to balance the body and maintain good health. By relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness in your workplace.
Deep tissue massage requires deep muscle stroking and pressure point work. It delivers relief of painful muscle stiffness. This treatment is intense and might be slightly painful. The results of this style of massage are dramatic for employees: exceptional relief of chronic muscle tension and highly effective for stress reduction, increased blood circulation, and most importantly, pain.
Workplaces that want to offer a customized experience for pregnant employees have the option to incorporate prenatal massage. Prenatal Massage done properly is safe and beneficial at all stages of a normal pregnancy. It can shorten labor times and ease pain and anxiety. It can be done prenatal or postpartum to rebalance structure, physiology and emotions of the new mother, and may help her to bond with and care for her infant. Moms-to-be are encouraged to bring their own relaxation CD that they plan to use during delivery.
Shiatsu means “finger pressure” in Japanese. Using a series of techniques, practitioners apply rhythmic finger pressure (or feet can be used) at specific points on the body in order to stimulate Qi (vital energy), as well as stretches to release blockages on the body’s energy ways (meridians). This type of technique can be performed on a massage table or a mat on the floor. Employees will leave with improved circulation and metabolism and stimulated nerves.
This technique is perfect for workplaces with active employees or serious athletes. Pre-event therapy works to loosen and invigorate the muscles to prepare them for the impact of intense activity for greater performance and decreased chance of injury. Post-event therapy can be called a “flush”. Muscles can break down and accumulate lactic acid during sporting events. This needs to be worked out or you can experience longer than desired recovery times.
This treatment is great for overall relaxation of body-mind-spirit for employees. It uses long superficial, soothing strokes for overall balance and relaxation. The benefits of this technique are detoxification, increased blood flow stimulating new cell growth. Rejuvenating, stimulating and deeply relaxing.
Through deep muscle stretching, joint release and emphasis on breath, Thai massage offers many of the same employee benefits as yoga. It is a unique and deep massage that transforms the body to a more flexible, relaxed, lighter and less painful being. In Thai massage it is not just the hands that are used to free tension from the recipient’s body, but the therapist’s feet, forearms, knees, and elbows as well. Be assured, northern-style Thai massage is never painful. Thai massage is applied on a mat on the floor or on a low massage table if preferred and the work is done fully clothed and no oils are required.
Trigger point therapy uses specific points or knots within the muscular tissue that connects to pain patterns throughout the body. By working with the correct pattern of trigger points, a practitioner can reduce pain and relieve muscle tension in the areas of the employee’s body that connect with that particular trigger.
