Corporate Chair Massage Prices: How to Determine Cost

When trying to find corporate massage prices online, we’ve noticed there isn’t a lot out there to refer to.

Most chair massage companies don’t advertise their rates at all, so it’s really hard for potential corporate massage clients to find the answer to that question they want to know: What are your corporate chair massage rates?

Contact Us is so 90’s… 

Most companies ask for you to contact them directly for a quote. But no one in today’s age likes to pick up the phone and wait on hold until someone picks up to finally give them the answer to their question. We live in the information age, and that’s what we want: INFORMATION.

So today, we’re going to give you the information that you want. We want to break this down so it’s easy for you to estimate what the cost will be for your massage event or program.

Corporate chair massage pricing nationwide

Rates across the country are actually pretty standard. There are a few areas where cost of living is higher (like NYC and LA) where the onsite massage rates are about double what they are everywhere else in the country. But since they generally don’t vary much from region to region, there are some simple guidelines you can use to estimate the prices for your area.


How is corporate chair massage pricing calculated?

Corporate chair massage rates are usually calculated by TOTAL HOURS of massage. These hours are determined using a few different variables:

  • number of people receiving massages
  • length of each massage session
  • length of time massage event will run
  • how many therapists you want at your massage event
  • how often you’d like massage
  • your budget 

For more detail on that, read how much chair massage costs, where we break those calculations down for you.

The real cost of chair massage

Across the industry, the range for corporate massage prices start at around $70 per hour per therapist up to around $120 per hour per therapist. Now of course, we may be biased, but you get what you pay for with massage, and that goes for the skills of your therapist, as well as the value-added services that may (or may not) be included in that pricing. Some companies even include tips in their rates, and that’s a real relief for most businesses hiring someone for corporate massage. Massage pricing and quotes will include both paid and unpaid breaks, depending on the duration of an event.

How to compare chair massage quotes

If you’ve gotten quotes from several companies, it’s important to accurately compare pricing–you want to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples. Looking at the bottom line of the bids may not be the best way to determine your best option. For example, notice not only the number of hours being quoted, but the number of massages, and the length of massages. A quote may appear to be less expensive simply because the company is quoting for fewer massages!

Another item to note is the support that will be offered after you sign the dotted line. At Nivati, we offer a full service experience with a dedicated staffing and customer service team. They’re available to help with any issues that may arise before or during your event day.

Getting the best rates on corporate chair massage

The way to get the very best rates on corporate chair massage is to sign up for a membership. Memberships can be set up on a quarterly, monthly, weekly, or even a daily basis. We’re able to customize the membership to meet the needs of your organization. If you think you’ll do massage 3-4 times per year, it’s almost always more cost effective to invest in a membership than to set up one time events.
