Corporate massage therapy is picking up speed in most major cities. While that means more employee massages, it also means more massage companies to choose from. If you're wondering how to choose the best option for your company, there are some factors to consider.
In this article, we'll provide a comparison of our company, Incorporate Massage, with Infinite Massage, which is another hot contender in the world of office massage therapy.
Incorporate Massage vs. Infinite Massage: Reviews
Office Massage Service Overview
Some massage companies offer mobile office massage in addition to other services and programs.
But both Infinite Massage and Incorporate Massage are solely focused on delivering office massage to companies as a benefit for employees.
Office Massage Cost Comparison
Office massage companies typically deliver workplace massage in two ways: at a special event or as part of an on-going program. Here's how Infinite Massage and Incorporate Massage compare when it comes to pricing.
Prices for Massage Events
Infinite Massage does not list event pricing on their website. To request a quote, you may contact them via their website form.
Here at Incorporate Massage, we provide a list of our office massage program costs online: Corporate Chair Massage Prices: What Does it Cost?
Our pricing generally ranges from $65-$100 an hour per therapist and includes travel, supplies, and even tips.
Cost of Massage Programs at Work
As mentioned above, Infinite Massage does not list prices on their website, but there is a contact form to request a quote for a massage program. They offer payment options that include 100% company-sponsored, 100% employee paid, or any combination of a cost-sharing split.
At Incorporate Massage, we only work with companies that pay for some or all of the massage program. We do not work with businesses that only want an employee-paid program. You can read more about why we made that decision here.
There are two options for our massage program costs: Standard Pricing and Premium Pricing. The Standard Programs are best for smaller companies that are able to manage scheduling the massages themselves. Premium Programs are better for larger companies, or businesses that would rather have us handle scheduling, communications, appointment reminders, and backfilling open massage sessions. The pricing difference between the two programs is an additional $5 per hour/per therapist fee.
Tipping for Office Massage
Infinite Massage encourages, but does not expect, tipping from clients. The industry standard is 15%-20%.
At Incorporate Massage, our final price includes a tip for the therapist, so there's need to budget for a tip on top of the original quote given.
Office Massage Locations Served
Both Incorporate Massage and Infinite Massage are national massage firms that provide massage to many major metropolitan areas and are steadily growing into new markets.
Both companies are adding new cities to their service areas very quickly, so it's only a matter of time until you'll see them both in your area. Here's a list of our current locations.
Massage Therapists for Workplace Massage
Infinite Massage works with a network of licensed massage therapists who are contractors with the company. Their therapists are insured, trained in chair massage techniques, and put through a screening process.
Most of the therapists at Incorporate Massage are employees of our organization. Our therapists go through a 2-week hiring and onboarding process. We provide a comprehensive training program, and maintain each therapists' licensing, insurance, and certifications. Each therapist is covered by their own individual insurance policy, as well as Incorporate Massage's liability policy for their organization.
In-Office Massage Scheduling
Both companies offer online scheduling systems to make booking easier on the clients.
Incorporate Massage can book just about anything with a week's notice, and many times can provide same-day staffing for corporate massage as well. We also provide online scheduling for massage events, as well as a robust scheduling platform for the Premium Service Programs. We also have a mobile app called BreakTime, that allows employees to conveniently schedule their monthly or weekly massages.
Both Infinite Massage and Incorporate Massage offer a great morale-boosting service to companies that want to improve their employees' work days. Before committing to either company, do some research on your own to determine the best massage company for your needs.
In either case, your employees are sure to thank you.
