We customize your event for you and together we figure out what would work best for your event and the people who will be receiving the massages. The massages can be as quick as a few minutes or up to 30 or even 45 minutes per person.
We believe that it is important for the therapist to walk their talk when it comes to taking care of their bodies and health. The length of each massage may determine the amount of break allotted to each therapist. We generally recommend that the therapist take a 10 minute break on a 3 hour event and an additional 10 minutes for each additional hour. We leave this up to the individual therapist because they know their bodies better than anyone. We schedule breaks when the event is a by appointment only event.
For our chair massage events without any of the extras. The therapist will bring a specially designed chair for recipients to get massages in. These chairs are designed so that the person receiving a massage does not have to hold up any of their muscles during the session. The therapist will also bring disposable face cradles, hand sanitizer, cleaning materials and all necessary paperwork. Music can also be an option.
Ideally we need a table and waste paper basket and the number of them is determined by how many therapists you request and your set up. If a table(s) is not available chair(s) for the therapist to put their needed items on works as well. For outdoor events a tent maybe recommended but is not a requirement. For additional services some things we may need are more table or chairs, and electrical outlets.
Yes. Every therapist that works with Massage On The Go USA is state licensed in the state they are working in and carry liability insurance. There are some states that do not issue licenses; in that case we require a minimum of 500 hours of massage schooling. That is the current requirement of the National Certification for Massage Therapy, recognized by the majority of states.
Yes we can!
All massages are done over clothing. Comfortable clothing is recommended as well as layers in the cold months. Massages feel better when the person receiving is not wearing bulky clothing. However many of our events are for people passing by a particular location and are not planned for the person receiving. We work around whatever they are wearing and look to make everyone comfortable and at ease.
Our philosophy is that gratuities should never be demanded nor refused. We pay our therapists well. A gratuity should be given because you were thrilled with the therapist(s) and not as a requirement. Please give at your own discretion and never feel obligated.
At larger venues you should expect the therapist there about 30 minutes before start time and 15 minutes for small offices such as in large cities.
Sometimes location and how much notice you give us do play a role in how many therapists we can provide. Generally speaking it is more about how many therapists you want. We are continually screening and training new therapists all over the country so the number of therapists becomes more about your needs rather than anything else.
We have many additional services that compliment the massage program for you to create your own customized event. If you don’t see something on our site that you would like…Just ask us, if we have contacts we will point you in the right direction. Also it is good to tell us what else you are planning for your event. Often times we have done something similar and may have some advice on how to make everything run better or how we can enhance the other components of your event.
