5 Reasons to Use a National Massage Company for Your Business

If you’re looking into providing chair massage to your employees, you’re in good company. Everyday, more businesses decide to offer in-house massage on a regular basis, and they are seeing the results!  Happier employees, higher morale, lower health care costs, and a renewed sense of employee loyalty are all benefits of corporate office massage.  Because chair massage is increasingly popular, there are countless companies offering mobile massage to meet this growing need. So how do you choose? Check out this list of 5 reasons to use a national corporate massage company. 

Why choose a national corporate chair massage company?


1. Uniform Perks for Your Employees — No Matter Where They Work

Firstly, when large businesses operate out of more than one location, it can be difficult to offer the same kinds of employee programs at each location.

With a national chair massage company, employees at national corporations will enjoy the same corporate culture at each office. This means the Duluth branch, the New York City branch, and the Phoenix branch (or wherever your company is based!) can all benefit from this perk. While you only deal with one massage company. 

We know national businesses want to replicate positive corporate culture in each of their offices. Using a national massage company helps keep things consistent.

2. Web-Based Scheduling, Invoicing, and Reminders

A massage company that delivers massages to businesses across the country every week needs to be streamlined, organized, and professional.

Therefore, most national massage companies will offer online scheduling, payments, and email or text reminders. Because we run on such a large scale, we’re equipped to handle this side of the process quickly and efficiently.

3. National Massage Company, Local Therapists

While you’ll deal with a massage company’s headquarters for all the paperwork and details, the therapists who show up at your office will live, work, and play in your own backyard.

Your visiting massage therapists are homegrown professionals. They know the lay of the land, root for your local sports team, and love working with local companies!


4. Highest Possible Chair Massage Standards

National chair massage companies have the strictest standards to keep up on. Because massage therapy licenses are granted on a state-by-state basis, a national company keeps up-to-date with all licensing requirements and laws in every state.

In Utah for example, massage therapists must comply with the Massage Therapy Board at the Department of Occupational and Professional Licensing, the health department standards for massage therapy, business licensing requirements, and professional liability insurance. 

We practice this level of detail and attention in all areas of chair massage business, from scheduling to the massages themselves.


5. Truly Mobile Massage

Because national corporate massage companies come equipped with therapists in several states, there is no destination that’s out of reach. Should you need chair massage therapists at a yearly company retreat in an out-of-state location, a national massage company can do that.

Not being constrained by geographical location means you can offer chair massage to your employees at any new branch your company opens, at any off-site work retreat, and on any company vacation.
