Chair Massage Questions & Answers
How much do you charge?
It can vary from $60 to $100 per hour. We work with organizations of all sizes, and several factors going into determining each chair massage event fee, including:
- Time of day. Events that begin after 8 PM will be higher.
- The total number of hours booked. To get a lower rate, book at least three consecutive hours per massage therapist requested. Multiple days at the same location helps too.
- Location. Parking fees may apply to certain locations.
- Repeat bookings: If you book a regular monthly or quarterly event, discounts apply.
- Non-profit groups, please let us know if you are a 501c (3) charity and we will offer our best rate for you.
Once you fill out our contact form with some details, we will send you a customized rate quote.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, we provide the massage chairs and supplies. We need waste baskets at your location. Foot massagers and a hot towels are available too.
What do you wear?
We arrive in our business casual shirts and pants, identifying us as chair massage therapists, so visitors won’t confuse us with your staff. Your guests will feel more confident knowing they are being offered a service by a licensed professional.
What about liability?
We have our own malpractice and massage therapy liability insurance policies. Everyone’s license is up to date also.
Can we request specific ages and gender of LMTs?
We try to staff a diverse crew to represent a cross section of the population. Everyone is screened to be the “cream of the crop” and is well groomed and speaks well. But we will do our best to accommodate reasonable requests. Please keep in mind, we’re a massage company, not a modeling agency.
Is tipping required?
Tipping your massage therapist or manicurist is always optional, at your discretion. We pay our crew above average rates, so if it’s not in your budget, no problem. Many companies allow the LMTs to accept unsolicited tips from attendees.
How much space is required for each chair massage therapist?
About 5 by 5 feet per massage chair is optimal, however, we sometimes can squeeze in smaller spaces if staggered.
What about covid precautions?
Throughout a shift, our practitioners regularly sanitize their hands and their equipment surfaces, especially where a recipient’s face rests. Additionally, they use a new, clean face cradle cover for each recipient. When our practitioners are sick, they do not work. Also our therapists wear face coverings while on the job.
How many massage therapists should I book for my event?
This will depend on how many people want to partake, and how many minutes you would like to offer them. We’re flexible, but it should be a minimum of 6 minutes per person, and remember, it takes a minute or two between each one to reset the chair and our hands. Typically, 10-20 minutes per massage is great.
What’s your cancellation policy?
Once a contract is signed, a 50% deposit is required, unless we waive it. This deposit is refundable with 14 days notice in most instances. Cancelling with less than 48 hours notice, the full amount is due.
