Description of on-site massage service
On-site massage does not require a private room and can be offered at the workstation, in a conference or work room. The massage therapist uses a special chair designed for massage in the workplace. The length of a massage session is 15-30 minutes, the length of a typical work break. During the massage, the recipient is seated and fully clothed. No oil is used. Therefore, no change in attire is necessary. The massage therapist uses techniques that focus on the upper part of the body – neck, head, shoulders, back, and arms.
