Frequently Asked Questions

How is Recharge Onsite different from other on-site massage and wellness companies?

Recharge Onsite provides an integrated approach to corporate wellness. Our team of licensed, insured massage, yoga, nutrition, and ergonomics professionals work together to address the typical physical ailments seen in the workplace.

Our cross-disciplinary approach allows us to fully address the needs of your team. For instance, an ergonomist will help remedy an incorrect office setup that might have contributed to pain an employee is experiencing. The yoga instructor can also address these issues in a yoga class, and a massage therapist can work on the specific troubled muscles to reduce the pain. We can provide specific exercises developed for business people that they can do on their own to prolong the relaxing effects of yoga and massage sessions.

In addition, Recharge Onsite understands that time is money. We will arrive early, professionally administer massage, ergonomic or yoga services, and leave you with a more relaxed, productive team.

Finally, Recharge Onsite continually strives to be a more sustainable company. See our sustainability page for more info.

I've never had a massage before, what do I need to do?

Just show up at your scheduled time, be prepared to communicate your areas of stress or pain, and get ready to relax!

What exactly is seated massage?

In seated massage, you will be sitting in a comfortable ergonomically-designed chair that supports your head and arms. This position will allow your therapist to effectively address the tension in your upper body.

What areas of the body does a seated massage address?

Seated massage covers the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms, and hands.

Can you bring a massage table instead of a chair?

Yes! Just specify which your company prefers.

Do I remove my clothes for massage?

In a seated massage you are fully clothed. During a table massage, if privacy allows, you might be asked to remove some clothing to better address your problem areas. In this case you will be professionally draped to protect your privacy.

What if I don’t like something the massage therapist is doing?

Please speak up! In order to ensure you get the most out of your session it is important that the therapist understands what your specific needs are.

Do I tip for a massage?

While tipping is never expected, it is always greatly appreciated.

I’ve never done yoga before, what do I need to do?

Come with an open mind, ready to try safe movements that are designed to both relax and recharge your body and mind! Wear comfortable workout clothes, and bring a yoga mat if you have one. In addition, the class will cover breathing techniques and stretches that you can do back in your office to prolong the effects of your yoga class.

Is your staff licensed and trained?

Yes! Every staff member is licensed and insured, and has extensive training in his or her field.

Every Recharge Onsite massage therapist has a minimum of 500 hours of massage training, is a licensed massage therapist (LMT), has a minimum of 2 years massage experience, and carries insurance.

Recharge Onsite yoga instructors all have a minimum of 200 hours of yoga teacher training, a minimum of 2 years teaching experience, are insured, and are CPR certified.

All ergonomists are certified professionals. Many come from occupational therapy, or physical therapy backgrounds and have a deep knowledge of body mechanics.

Do you file workers’ compensation claims?

No. Recharge Onsite offers preventive services only. We do not do any insurance filing or claims processing. We can provide reports for our ergonomic evaluations, but are not affiliated with OSHA, state, or federal agencies.
