Bodyworkz can provide one or more therapists to come to your event, or Conference, bringing their massage chairs (or massage tables if preferred), to fit in around your stand or table that will definitely attract attention to you and your team.
Why not provide one of your own trade or team shirt for the therapist to wear as well? Alternatively, set up a Lounge area where attendees can enjoy a 10-15 minute massage session before moving on to the next Speaker.

The Science... Health Benefits
A seated chair massage is more than a luxury that 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 calm alertness.
Dr. Tiffany Field, founder of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine told "More" magazine 'that any type of massage, including chair massage, can reduce stress, improve sleep, help sore and tight muscles and enhance immunity.'

So what better time do you need attendees and exhibitors alert and focused than during your event?'
