Other Massage Services

We are available to meet the needs of most on location events such as film shoots, musical performances and sports events and benefits of all kinds. Catskill Mountain Massage works with athletes, musicians, performers, backstage hands and all those involved in the specific events.

Additionally, corporate massage is becoming more popular and we have been at the forefront of this very successful movement.

The cost of this type of service, whether for office or on location events, will vary. Please call or email so that we can discuss the venue and the types of services and costs.

A study by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami found that after five weeks, a group of 26 employees who had twice-weekly, 15-minute massages in the office fared better than a control group of 24 employees who were just told to close their eyes and relax. The massaged group experienced reduced stress and improved performance, while the control group did not. Using electroencephalograms (EEG), researchers measured alpha and beta waves in both groups, and found massage recipients to be more alert. Stress hormones in the saliva of the massaged group were lower than in the control group. The massaged workers completed math problems in half the time as normal and with half the errors they had before they were massaged. The math skills of the control group did not improve. The massage recipients also reported that they were less fatigued and more clearheaded.

Corporate Chair Massage

It is easy to schedule a massage therapist to come in to have appointments with employees during breaks. The recipient is seated in a specially designed chair which allows the therapist to work on the back, neck, shoulders and arms addressing the common problem areas of today's workers, specifically the sites of repetitive use. There is no oil used and the worker is fully clothed. The massage session usually lasts 5-15 minutes, the time for a coffee break.

On-Location Massage Services

 
 

For those of you who are temporarily at a given location, either filming or creating musical venues and events, we have the perfect antidote to a demanding day. A massage is refreshing and invigorating, relaxing and exactly what you need to continue your time sensitive projects with inspiration and positive energy! There is no end to the assets of having a massage therapist on hand with a table or a chair to facilitate this type of high output position. We can provide minutes of muscular relief or an hour to sink into a more relaxed state of mind.

 

We are flexible and have the ability to set up and take down in minutes which makes it easy for this type of more temporary location.

Wedding Spa Services

Catskill Mountain Massage is available to come to your event and can perform either chair massage or table massage. For weddings it works out wonderfully to use the table. We can set up in a room of your choosing, and we bring soft, luxurious linens and aromatic oils and lotions. 30, 60, or 90 minute treatments are offered. We can perform up to 10-20 sessions during the day, depending on how many therapists are available.

You can choose from Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, NMT, CST or even Hot Stone massage.

We think having a massage therapist on hand for your wedding party is a wonderful addition to the event as well as an excellent and relaxing way to prepare for the wedding day itself.

 

We offer specials.  Please email or call with inquiries, as we are always ready and able to help you create the ideal massage and spa package for your event.

 

Workshop and Conference Massage Services

 

More and more people are including massage as part of their workshops and conferences. It is a wonderful way to make best use of free time and to raise the level of attention and focus for the participants as well as serve as an incentive and modeling of a healthy lifestyle.

Massage Therapy couples perfectly with many workshops, including Yoga, healthy lifestyle, stretch, exercise, creative writing, and many other wellness-oriented events. Even at events that are not health focused, such as academic and industry conference, the addition of massage services is effective and popular. Massage and other body work modalities have been embraced by the mainstream as preventative health measures and offering participants services is an invaluable addition to any event.

We hope you take advantage of this offering!

Health Fairs

 

We are frequently hired to work alongside certain health insurance companies, human service agencies, and other forward-thinking organizations. In so doing we raise the awareness of the myriad health benefits of Massage Therapy. Massage Therapy prevents and treats many common health issues and promotes the optimum health of each individual. By educating the public through information and example, we are supporting holistic and complimentary approaches to medicine.
