Frequently Asked Questions






What is a chair massage?

A chair massage range from 10-30 minute massages that focuses on the high-tension areas of the neck, back, shoulders, arms & hands.

Chair massage is performed on an ergonomically designed portable massage chair. You sit on the massage chair facing forward, with your head in a face rest.

Chair massage is especially effective at producing therapeutic results in a brief period of time by concentrating the massage on the areas of greatest tension.


How much space is needed?

Space requirements are minimal - only a small 5' x 6' area is needed for the therapist to set up their massage chair and have enough room to move around comfortably.  A 3'x7' area is needed for the therapist to set up their massage table and have enough room to move around comfortably.

Do I remove my clothing?

Not during a chair massage, you remain fully clothed. At most, you may be asked to remove any jacket or obstructive jewelry during the massage.  For a full body Massage you may undress down to your undergarments.  All clients are required to be draped with a sheet or towel, per State Statute.

Do they use oils during the massage?

No oils are used in chair massage. Sometimes a light and absorbent lotion is applied during hand massage. Please let your therapist know if you prefer no lotion.  For full body Massages a non scented oil or lotion is used unless client would prefer a scented aromatherapy session.

Are gratuities or tips expected or included?

Gratuities are not expected or necessary, however they are an excellent way to let the massage therapists know that they've done an outstanding job. If you choose to tip, the average amount is 15-20%.
