Chair massage rates are the number one topic of conversation we get from potential clients.
We want to break up the mysterious fog around this issue so you know what to budget for when massage is in your company's near future (lucky!).
Corporate Chair Massage Rates
Chair massage pricing is always calculated by TOTAL HOURS. These hours are determined using a few different variables:
- number of people receiving chair massages
- length of each massage session
- length of time massage event will run
- how many therapists you want at your massage event
- your budget
Now you don’t need to know the numbers for every one of these variables. To come up with some solid options for your massage event, you only really need to know two of the above listed pieces of info to come up with an exact value.
Option #1: Number of Employees & Corporate Massage Session Length
We typically recommend this pricing method for small and medium businesses because they can usually determine how many people they want to provide massages for very easily with a company email or a simple sign up sheet.
In which case you would need to know two things:
- How many people are getting massages?
- Length of each massage session
Then it’s simple math:
Let’s say you want to put on a massage day for your employees and you have 20 people receiving 15 minute massages. That would be a total of 5 hours. Depending on the chair massage rates the company is charging, you are probably looking at $200-500 for that event. For this example and for math’s sake, let’s say they charge $100 an hour. Then the cost is $500.
But sometimes you don’t know how many people will be participating in your massage day, so in that case, use option two or three to determine chair massage costs.
Option #2: Massage Event Length & Number of Therapists
This option is best for larger companies, or companies with a specific time frame in mind. If you're unsure about participation, then you can give this method a try to determine your corporate chair massage pricing.
You need the following information:
- Length of time massage event is going to run.
- How many therapists you want at your massage event
So let’s say you have an booth at a trade show running from 12pm-4pm and you want 4 therapists onsite to provide chair massage at your trade show booth to draw in attendees. You would just multiply 4 therapists by 4 hours and you have 16 total hours. If the rate is $100 an hour (again, for easy math’s sake), you would pay $1600 for this event.
Option #3: Chair Massage Budget
Many organizations aren’t sure what they want or need for their massage event. And that’s ok! But most companies at least know what they can spend. Everyone has a budget. If you just have that number, a great massage company should be able to give you a list of options that will work well for you.
For instance, a company of 600 people is having a health fair from 9am-1pm, and they want to provide chair massages at the health fair. People will be trickling in and out all day and they don’t know how many people will be able to get a massage, but they know their budget is $2000.
Again, for math’s sake let’s use the $100 an hour rate to determine cost. With a budget of $2000, they can do 20 total hours of massage. Their event only runs from 9am-1pm, so that means they can have 5 therapists onsite for that four hour block to provide massages for their employees at the health fair.
Any way you cut it, you can get a massage event set up that works for you, your staff and your budget. For more details on chair massage rates, check out corporate chair massage rates across the nation or click the button below to use our quote calculator.
