Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

At ALEYDA’s corporate massage, you could sign up for seated chair massage and/or foot reflexology, depending on what your organisation has opted for. For seated chair massage, you will be sitting on an ergonomic monkey chair and our therapists will apply acupressure, deep-tissue techniques over the towel. Because of the limited time allowed, they usually focus on the neck, shoulders, upper back and, if time permits, the lower back. If you have specific areas of concern, do highlight them to your therapist. Our foot reflexology also utilises acupressure techniques and is applied with foot lotion.

The direct and indirect benefits of massage are well researched and documented. Here are some of them:

Massage is very personal – there are different preferences in terms of pressure, areas of focus and style. Communication with your therapist is therefore crucial to ensure you get the most out of the session.

We appreciate if you could convey your feedback (positive or otherwise) to us via your internal coordinator.
