On-Site Chair Massage for your Retail Patrons

On-Site Chair Massage can be used to enchance your market, hotel or anywhere you wish to provide this beneficial service for your customers or patrons. This is known to be the MOST popular service that people remember!

A. How it Works

Frances has been providing On-Site Chair Massage at the Wild Oats Market in Pasadena, for over 7 years, so she has many years experience in this setting. There needs only to be a small area set aside for the massages, allowing for appropriate signage. Your company can provide a permanent massage chair, or the therapists can bring their own.

It is recommended that the massage therapists have 4-hour shifts and are responsible for providing a replacement if they are unable to cover their shift. This is an excellent template for any market, hotel or anyplace where there are customers on a regular basis.

B. Pricing

$75 per hour of chair massage (recommended for company provided service)
$20 per 1/4 hour (recommended for customer/patron self-pay)

We request that your organization cover any parking fees.

C. Scheduling

We suggest starting out with two, 4-hour shifts during your busiest days, starting at noon. As your customers/patrons become familiar with the chair massage service, we can expand to additional days, eventually providing chair massages daily. Email Frances or call her at (818) 951-4336, and you will receive a prompt reply.
