Here’s what some employees who receive a 20-minute Chair Massage regularly from Essential Vitality have to say:
“I think the chair massage is absolutely fantastic. I feel ready to tackle my day when I return to my desk… I would recommend the chair massage to anyone.”
“The 20 minute chair massage at work is perfect for me … I immediately feel better afterwards.”
“Once you have tried it you won’t go back! I have a massage once a week and feel this relieves so much stress…”
If that’s how just a few people feel – imagine the positive response from your whole team after receiving the Chair Massage!

Good for business!
Workplace Chair Massage – especially on a regular basis – can have an amazing, positive impact on your team, which can only be good for business!
What’s more helping to reduce employee stress levels is important for employee wellbeing as well as productivity.
The HSE defines work-related stress, depression or anxiety as “a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work.”
There were 15.4 million working days lost due to stress, anxiety and depression in 2018/19 according to the Health and Safety Executive. Taking action to reduce stress is important for business: reducing stress is good for employee mental and physical well-being, and lowers absenteeism in your organisation.

So, can massage really make a difference?
“After having massages from Paola for a while now, I can definitely feel the benefit. Having a sedentary occupation can cause a lot of issues.”
“I think this is a great service for anyone who has a job where they are sitting all day like I do. It is not only good for my posture it’s also great for my general wellbeing. Paola is always fantastic, I can’t recommend her enough.”
Martin Banks, Software Developer
As massage therapists we know the positive effects of massage because we see the ’Before’ and ‘After’!
The difference between a person walking in the room – stressed, shoulders hunched, holding tension in their body – to when they walk out – smiling, relaxed, and walking ‘tall’, ready to face the day.
Massage improves employee health and wellbeing in so many ways:
- Easing muscle tension in the upper body
- Boosting circulation in the areas worked on
- Reducing stress
- Helping concentration and focus
- Increasing postural awareness leading to improved posture
The best way to find out is to experience a massage for yourself!
David Palmer, well known for introducing Chair Massage from America to the UK, points out the impact of positive touch:
“Massage/touch brings our minds and bodies back into the present moment, which is where, as the mindfulness experts keep telling us, all of the best decisions are made.”
