Corporate Chair Massage

Not only is this a terrific way to recognize and reward hard-working employees, but there are significant health benefits as well. Tight neck and shoulder muscles caused by stress and sitting behind a desk all day can impede blood and lymph
flow through the body, resulting in mental fogginess, decreased energy, and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries. Chair massage opens up the back muscles, relieves strain on the neck and provides a gentle respite for the eyes.
