PLANNERS

Chair massages at events are nothing new, they are now expected, and are sought out by many during multi-day conferences.  Event massages has become more common today because event management stopped viewing it as a luxury, and started to see it as "Therapeutic". It's not a luxury to those who need to get some relief from a painful headache, stiff neck or aching shoulder or back.
There's no reason why you shouldn't have massages available somewhere at your event! Surveys show they help with attendee satisfaction, and when sponsored, may generates additional revenue!  Just having it available, shows Attendees that management is concerned for their health and well-being. We hear  all the time "what a great ideal".
There are many reasons to have chair massages at your event and many ways to use it!
Sponsorships:  Chair Massages make for a great sponsorship opportunity with a lot of added exposure for the Sponsor(s). So pick a name for it and put it up for sponsorship.
Rest Stops Sponsorships:  A chair and masseur at each rest stop or unused pockets in or outside the exhibit hall. They don't take up a lot of space... just a little more space than an average office chair. One or more Sponsor per spot.  It's a sponsorship that can be offered as a daily sponsorship making it more affordable for small and/or new exhibitors. Great for large venues and large exhibit halls.
Chair Massages near Registration Area:  Getting relief from the tension and stress of traveling, as well as relief for the registration lines. Great exposure for a Sponsor.
Exhibitor Lounges:  Exhibitors normally put in long hours. Massage is a great way to help them recharge. It's a Great Association/Show sponsorship. Especially your VIP, large and returning exhibitors.
Association/Membership Booth:  Give away "Free Massages" for joining, or renewing membership.
Hospitality Suites:  Relax and Refresh VIPs

The Science... Health Benefits

A seated chair massage not only leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. It can have positive health implications. In just 10 minutes, your blood pressure and heart rate decrease, resulting in a state of calmness. Dr. Tiffany Field, founder of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine stated that any type of massage, including chair massage, can reduce stress, improve sleep, help sore and tight muscles and enhance immunity. And she told More magazine,  based on the study below, "Anyone who needs to stay alert and focused, should get a short chair massage quick".
Controlled studies, conducted at University of Miami School of Medicine, Duke and Georgetown Universities. Groups of subjects received 10 and 15-minute chair massages, while other groups rested for the same period of time. EEG results showed that subjects who received chair massages, had an increase in delta brain waves, suggesting they were more relaxed than the rested group and a decrease in alpha and beta brain waves (indicating greater alertness and performance). The massaged subjects also worked math computations faster and more accurately than the groups who only rested for the same periods of time.
So what better time do attendees and exhibitors need to stay alert and focused... than during an event.?
