Massage is not a Luxury !
Like food, clothing and shelter, it can certainly be upgraded
to that level but the basic benefits of pain and stress relief
are crucial to your Well-being !
Take Five Chair & Clothed Table Massage believes massage is important for people and should be more an everyday part of people's lives - not just something to pamper yourself with. The shorter and more economical sessions of a chair (or clothed table) massage PLUS the convenience of walk in massage allow you to easily receive more massage for your money.
This is especially helpful for managing chronic pain, tension and stress. It also can help prevent these conditions from developing in the first place. And because oils are typically not used, it is easier to go back to work or continue on with your day in a non-greasy way. Plus, many times when you are in pain or under extra stress, you would like the massage NOW as opposed to having to make an appointment for a few days out. Take Five Chair Massage always welcomes walk in massage requests ! (although walk-in availability is not guaranteed... but there is a sign-up sheet if we are busy & chances are, you will be able to get a spot in good time)
Don't like the Chair? No problem - Take Five also has a table available. Some people feel more relaxed lying on a table and some conditions are better addressed with the client on the table. Clothed table sessions are priced the same as chair massage sessions.
WALK-INS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME !
