In the Benefits of Onsite Massage program we've combined four articles written especially for the Institute's Massage Professionals Update. These four articles include:

  • 8 Ways to Grow Your Massage Practice with Chair Massage - Here's how chair massage can help you grow your massage practice, help more people, increase profitability, and attract and build new clientele.
  • Scholarly Chair Massage Opportunity - Find out the many reasons for a massage therapist to consider those striving for a collegiate degree to be their potential clientele.
  • Bringing Massage Therapy Into the Workplace - In order to change the alarming statistics on stress and depression in the workplace, employers with foresight will be seeking solutions. Capable of easing stress and depression, the demand for bodyworkers who perform chair massage is likely to skyrocket.
  • 10 Tips for Avoiding Injury With Onsite Massage - Portable massage tables have been around since 1910 - though back then portable did not necessarily mean light in weight - and massage chairs were invented in 1986. But doing onsite massage therapy on a regular basis is still relatively new and, in order to avoid injury, requires an increased awareness to one's surroundings.
