What exactly is Office Massage
What exactly is Office Massage?
Ever wondered what exactly happens when you book a mobile massage therapist to visit your office? Here is an account from one of our clients in London of their whole experience. It might be helpful for you if you are wanting to book an office massage therapist but are not sure what to expect.
I sit cradling my work phone between shoulder and ear, typing furiously, whilst an infuriatingly incompetent operator puts me on hold for the fourth time. I throw exasperated glances at my colleague opposite only to find her also balanced in a similar pose, although she has also skilfully added a cup of coffee and a ringing mobile into the equation (show off). Not being able to bare the horrendous call waiting music any longer I hang up, grip the edge of my desk and take a deep breath, something that seems strangely unfamiliar, and I realise I have been holding it in for far longer than my doctor would recommend.
There seems to be some commotion from the entrance to the office and as I stand up to get a better look I see a woman dressed in sage green, with white flowing trousers being introduced as our office massage therapist for the day. Meeting room 1 is transformed from its usual function as a stage for our office politics into her office massage haven. I am intrigued as I see anxious, buzzing colleagues disappear behind the closed doors and then 15 minutes later return smiling, with shoulders no longer hunched by their ears and heading straight in the direction of the water dispenser.
My Office Massage
Finally my turn arises and I reluctantly finish an email and take a last sip of coffee throwing my cup in the recycling en route to the door. I am greeted by an empty chair and a girl in her twenties who looks far more relaxed and comfortable in this room than I have ever seen even our highest executive. She introduces herself and explains what will happen. Apparently she will massage my shoulders, neck, upper back and upper arms, whilst I sit upright in the office chair. It will be a mixture of Thai massage, Indian Head Massage and acupressure. She checks that I am ok with all the areas being massaged and promises not to mess up my hair.
