massage and bodywork professionals

a community of practitioners

What have your experiences been giving massages in workplaces? We have sent a few students out to do chair massages, and always get positive results. Although many of the "customers" do perceive the procedure as awkward.

The research behind the health benefits of massage reducing stress and depression are just astounding. http://massage.solex.edu/blog/stress-in-the-workplace-meets-its-nem...

I have operated a massage program for office workers and manufacturing for 12 years now.It is very effective. We do it under contract and in compliance with California labor laws. In each location we reduced soft tissue injury claims by 96%. Massage should be available to every worker. It is not only about stress relief but also repetitive motion syndrome. It is good exposure for your students. I hope they go on to study modalities that will cut worker injuries. We also do work station ergonomics and body mechanics review and consulting.
I've never had one, it reminds me of getting a massage in one of those Mall chairs. When I get a massage, it's in a private setting where I can remove my clothing.
Mike since I haven't heard of any clothing optional malls outside Cap D'Agde in France, I don't think that is an option. Don't knock it until you try one (from an experienced chair professional).
