Corporate Gift Massage: How to Thank Your Favorite Clients

Looking for ways to say thanks to a favorite client? In this article, we’ll cover how massage can work as a corporate gift. Generally, corporate gifts are tokens of thanks to a vendor or client, but why not offer a corporate massage package instead?

Here’s how to set up office massage as a corporate gift.

Why Give Massages as Corporate Gifts?

Corporate gifts are a great way to make a statement with a loyal client or a favorite vendor. So businesses are often on the lookout for unique ideas to set their gift apart. As reported by Engagement Strategies Media, corporate gift giving is based on one key goal:

…to affirm relationships and enhance the personal connection between giver and recipient.

Sounds noble, right? So if your goal is to enhance a relationship with a vendor or long-standing client, you’d want a gift that makes an impact.

As we’ve reported on before, massage has countless health benefits — from lowered stress hormones to increased focus. So it’s a great opportunity for one company to thank another for its’ work and service.


How does corporate gift massage work?

If you want to offer massage therapy as a gift for a vendor, client, or customer, here’s what you need to know.

After you’ve picked a massage company to provide the service, they’ll work with you to organize and schedule it. You’ll want to decide what kind of massage program or service you’d like to provide. 

We have some clients that pay for a one-day massage event as a gift for another company. Others will offer to pay for a month or two of a regular onsite massage service. Ultimately, your massage company can help you find an option that works best for you and your budget.

On the day of the massage event — or the first day if it’s a longer program — your massage therapists will show up at your client or vendor’s place of business with everything they need to provide professional onsite massage care. 

Since payment is arranged ahead of time, there’s nothing your client or vendor will need to worry about on the day of the event. The location will have be pre-determined, as well. Office massage is usually held in an unused meeting space, office, or virtually anywhere.

I want to give massage therapy as a corporate gift—what do I do first?

Your first step will be to do a little research to find a massage company that offers what you’re looking for. Keep in mind that while there are typically plenty of massage therapists in any given area, not all of them will provide massage in a corporate setting. That means you’ll  need to look for an office massage provider.

When setting up your gift, your massage company will need some details:

  • Where will the massages take place? 
  • Do you want table massage or chair massage? 
  • What’s your budget for your massage gift?

With these basic details in mind, your massage company will be equipped to set up whatever date works best for whoever receives the massage service.
