What Are Massage Events?
Massage is very versatile, you can plan for a massage at any type of corporate event. It doesn’t matter how big or small the event is, whether it’s a company party, an offsite retreat, a health fair, or an appreciation day, massage can easily fit into your event schedule.

The next big common question you’re likely thinking is, “what type of massage should we offer at the event?” No worries, we can give you a few examples to help you choose the right massage for your type of corporate event.
What Massage Type Should We Use?
Mobile massage services for your corporate event may include a handful of different massage types you can choose from. If you’re hosting a corporate event that will have activities that include running, sports, or other physical activities, you may want to consider having a sports massage. Sports massage helps to keep muscles and tendons happy and healthy before and after athletic events. It’s a form of table massage where clients remain clothed, so privacy isn’t an issue.
Other types of table massage generally don’t happen at big events, because they’d require private areas for clients to undress. Since one-time events usually don’t have the space (or time) for this, chair massages are often more favored than table massages. In fact, chair massages are the most common at corporate events.
