About chair massage - Benefits

Chair massage was pioneered by David Palmer of the San Francisco-based TouchPro Institute in the early 1980s. He was commissioned by Apple Computers to provide an onsite service that would help their employees deal more effectively with the stress and tension that built-up on the job — without interfering with the regular flow of their business.

From that starting point, an industry was born. Quickly, chair massage began to show up in major airports, shopping malls and offices throughout the US. From its early beginnings at Apple Computer, chair massage has become an accepted part of company wellness plans throughout North America.
