Traditionally, the only way you could enjoy a professional massage is to go to a spa or massage therapy clinic—but it’s not as relaxing as you think.
You need to dedicate at least two or more hours of your time:
- To get there
- Get undressed
- Have approximately an hour long treatment
- Then potentially showering or using spa amenities like steam rooms, saunas, and pools
- Following that, you need to get dressed, look presentable, and head back home or to work
Who has time for this “luxury” with the busy, chaotic world we live in?
Most people simply don’t have the time to go to a spa or massage therapy as a regular health practice (to make themselves feel better, as they should). Massages should be a preventative measure and shouldn’t just be used when your body breaks down or when dealing with an acute injury. Some people have never had a massage therapy session before, so they don’t understand the healing benefits. If they do a little research, they will find that massage dates back over 5,000 years!
“The practice of using touch as a healing method derives from customs and techniques rooted in ancient history. Civilizations in the East and West found that natural healing and massage could heal injuries, relieve pain, and prevent and cure illnesses. What’s more, it helped reduce stress and produce deep relaxation”— History of Massage Therapy, Natural Healers
At Soulful Indulgence, we believe everyone deserves a massage. We bring the convenience of rejuvenating massages and spa experiences directly to those who need them most. With our on-site Chair Massage service, anyone can enjoy a relaxing massage anywhere, anyplace, anytime!
What is a Chair Massage?
Chair massage is a 15-20 minute massage focused on the back, shoulders, neck, arms, and head. It is designed to relax the muscles and improve flexibility and movement. This relaxing and recharging mobile massage session will have you ergonomically seated in a specialized massage chair, with your face resting in a cradle. Your face is looking down towards the ground, while your arms are supported by a special shelf. Your back and neck are fully relaxed while the chair massage practitioner provides relief from muscular tension.
There is no need to change or shower after. Simply sit down and relax. Then get up and continue on with your day. By taking just 15 minutes, a chair massage session can help alleviate your stress and increase your sense of well-being.
The unique thing about the chair massage is how compact and portable it is. Massage practitioner can perform a chair massage treatment almost anywhere. You’ll see massage chairs on-site at busy places such as airports, malls, festivals, company retreats, trade shows, golf tournaments, conferences, and especially emerging in workplaces. Because the cost of a 15 minute chair massage is a fraction of the cost of full body massage and still comes with a whole host of amazing health benefits, many companies are adopting this service as a free perk for staff.

Many of the clients we work with including Telus, Samsung, Coast Capital Savings, and Mobi by Shaw realize the benefits of bringing massage to their employees. Massages nowadays aren’t just for personal use. They offer great benefits for those who work long hours or have stressful jobs. It is now scientifically proven to be so much more than just for stress reduction. It really does make people feel better, think better, and sleep better. The best part is the effects of massage is instant, long lasting and cumulative.
Benefits of Chair Massage
“A study conducted by Shulman and Jones of the Touch Research Institute in Miami, Florida, found that massage in the workplace helped reduce anxiety. The study indicated that 15 minutes of chair massage was more effective than a 15-minute break to reduce anxiety.”— What Are the Benefits of Chair Massage in the Workplace?, Livestrong.com
On-site chair massage improves circulation by increasing the blood flow to help the healing in the body. It reduces stress hormones, which lowers high blood pressure. A good massage re-awakens the body, mind, and spirit by connecting us to the inner ability to self heal. Furthermore, it increases oxygen to the brain, which builds better mental focus. Massages help reduce workplace injuries which in turn helps reduce compensation claims, absenteeism, and requested time off.
In as little as 15 minutes, the immune system is improved. Massages make people healthier and more resilient to getting sick. Who wouldn’t like to feel better?
There is a meditative-like calming effect to relaxation massages. They help reduce stress and the symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, which in turn improves morale and feelings of self worth. This is especially true during times of long work hours, seasonal rush, or high workplace tension from fast paced work environments.

Massage On The Rise!
Most highly competitive industries are rolling out the red carpet with employee perks and benefits such as providing complimentary in-house or on-site chair massage to employees on a regularly booked schedule. (Talk about a great hiring perk!) This provides a better work-life balance to their important team. It helps their well-being, and rewards them the way they deserve.
Typically a group of masseuses are deployed for quarterly or annual events. For regular weekly or bi-weekly on-going service mostly requires one practitioner onsite between 4 to 6 hours for companies with anywhere from 90 to 180 people. At Soulful Indulgence, we can work with you on a consultative basis to create a massage program that works best for you.
