Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.
I am wondering if anyone can give me tips on what to bring. I am not sure yet, but the organizers may be bringing sign up sheet, so im not concerned with that. Just need some good tips on how to organize and bring stuff I need (chair cleaner, antibac , lotions, business cards, signs, etc.) I want to advertise myself at this event as well. Any experienced on-site chair massage therapists have any good tips or ideas for me? Also, what to wear??? They didnt tell me I had to wear any formal logo shirt or anything, so I am assuming I can wear what I want.
Here's a sample:
Please complete this confidential form to assist the massage therapist in providing a specialized seated massage.
Date of Birth:
In Case of Emergency:
Have you recieved massage before?
Are you currently being treated by a physician for any condition?
If yes, please explain:
Recent illness/injury/surgery (please explain):
Previous broken bones:
Please check all applicable medical conditions we should know about:
High blood pressure
Cardiac or Circulatory problems
Epilepsy or seizures
Please list any medications you are taking (including non-prescription drugs):
Do you have any areas of tension you would like focus work on?
Then of course the standard......
If at any time during the session you feel pain or discomfort, please inform the therapist so that the massage may be adjusted to your needs.
And the consent....
I consent to the massage therapy services I am receiving through (insert name of company). The part about not diagnosing would go here as well, and something regarding an affirmation that the medical information provided was correct. Also, a sexual clause with some info that if any inappropriate gestures or remarks are made, the session will be terminated and the client will be liable for payment of the scheduled appointment.
Hope that helps.
Wal-Mart. I'd say you may find something at BigLots too... or possibly Tuesday Morning.Where did you buy your wheeled back pack? I can't spend alot, but do need something very functional
<br>The purchased face cradles are much nicer, but the clients don't seem to mind the paper towels. I have used both and now only use paper towels. <br><br>For "free events" I offer 5 minute chair massages. I feel that is enough time for the person to try out the massage. I have done this and gotten regulars jobs every time. <br><br>As for intake forms, ABMP offers a short one and here is a link to another, http://www.sohnen-moe.com/formfiles/seat_mas.pdf<br><br>I learned at a chair seminar about using Brawny extra large paper towels and tearing them about 2/3 the way up the middle for the face to go in. Way, way, way cheaper than any fancy face cradle covers and feel fine to clients.EB
<br>For my regular jobs there are sign up sheets, but for "free events" I just have a line. This worked out fine for me and it also gave them a chance to sign up for my drawing and to fill out the intake.Last year they didn't have a sign up sheet and they had a line. I don't think that would be relaxing for them or me. I thought about having them check on the sign up sheet if they want hands or neck/upper back. <br> <br>Any suggestions? <br>LaLoba
If I was on-site at a company for 6 hours and did 3 an hour, that would be total of 18? would that be killing myself in a 6 hour day?? or is that possible to do?

Thanks so much...
Since this is my first time, I am having trouble picturing doing a massage every 5 minutes for 3 hours!!!! w/o a sign in sheet and with a line, how do you pace yourself? or do you?
Can you, or others, give me some more specifics...
You are massaging someone and the people in line are filling out an intake form and waiting their turn. When do you take a break? How can you take a break with a line?
Am I overthinking this?
Consider working with some friends and family for about three or more hours and see how it goes beforehand, to give yourself an idea. Usually it's that 4 and1/2 or 5 hour mark that makes me start to get a little "bleh".
But my question is for 15 minute chair massage event which is a paid chair event, and you have a somewhat of a substantial intake form to fill out, do you think it's somewhat of a deterrant and some people won't want to fill it out? Do you think it scares people off to give out information (such as ailments/illlness/medicine/etc)?? Do you ever do one on someone who really wants the massage but doesn't want to fill one out? Ive not done any chair events yet so im just trying to figure out what to expect.
