"I just had my chair massage with Mr. Haley. He was terrific - I felt like a different person walking out than the person who walked in! What a perfect experience to remind me to hit the pause and reset buttons!" - Mary DePalma


"This is a tremendous tool for recharging my battery during the work day. It's amazing how relaxing it is to have a quick massage to stretch out my neck, shoulders, arms and back. It also serves as a conscious reminder for being aware of good posture and proper ergonomics at work." - Karenn Reeter
