Signup Options & Procedures
Chair Massages are scheduled by appointment in
10-,15-, 20-, or 30-minute increments.
Signing up by appointment (on paper or on-line):
For group events in which participants sign up for specific appointment times, a customized signup sheet will be provided for you (and be sent to you via email to be printed out). There may be more than one, depending on the number of therapists coming to your site. We highly recommend that all participants be notified about the chair massage event at least one day before the event and that everyone who is to receive a massage already be scheduled on the signup sheet(s) before the massage therapist(s) arrive. This way there are no delays in deciding who is going to go 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on. BE SURE THAT EACH PARTICIPANT’S NAME, MASSAGE APPOINTMENT TIME, AND TELEPHONE EXTENSION NUMBER ARE FILLED OUT ON THE SIGNUP SHEET(s). Please give the signup sheet(s) to the therapist(s) when they arrive. The Therapist(s) will take the signup sheet(s) with them when they leave. If you want copies, make sure you get them copied before they leave.
Late Policy: Participants arriving late to their scheduled chair massage appointments will only receive the time remaining for their massage. As part of our service, the massage therapist(s) make courtesy calls to remind participants who are not on time for their appointments. But you may want to designate someone in your office to call and remind each participant a few minutes before each appointment (Optional).
Therapists Breaks: Hard break-times are written into the signup sheets so there is no confusion as to when the massage therapists are to receive their breaks. You, the client, are never charged for therapists’ break times.

5-, 10-, 15-, 20-, 25- or 30-minute chair massages offered in not-by-appointment settings (i.e. health fairs, conventions, parties & promotions or unpredictable office climates in which participants cannot commit to specific appointment times).
Signing up NOT by appointment: For group events in which participants do not sign up for any specific appointment times, we have them sign up on our Acknowledgment Forms (which the massage therapists will bring with them to the event). The massage therapist(s) work on participants in the order in which they sign up. Or they will just massage each participant, one at a time, one after the other, as they show up. Either, way each participant will sign the Acknowledgment Form before they receive their massage.
Some participants sign up, walk off and forget to come back. The therapist simply calls out the name of whoever is next on the list. If a participant is not present when their name is called, the massage therapist calls the next name on the list. If a participant shows up later still expecting to receive their massage, they receive preferential treatment over anyone who signed after them. We have found this policy maintains order and prevents a lot of bad feelings among participants waiting to receive their chair massage.
Important Note: Please expect no less than 3 minutes of down-time between each massage in order to dis-infect the chair and acclimate each participant to the chair massage experience (i.e, insure informed consent).
Therapists’ Breaks: Massage therapists working for Seize the Day, will never work more than 2 hours without receiving a minimum 15-minute break. You, the client, are never charged for therapists’ break times. Therapists (if more than one) will never take their breaks at the same time to insure that there is always someone providing chair massage throughout the event.
