RTE is reporting that the average massage is about 45 minutes long, with some of the longer sessions lasting for up to an hour and a half.
RTE said that some of its members said they could not work out for hours on end without a massage, while others said they had trouble concentrating on their tasks and needed to go to bed early.
In a statement, the company said it had been working with its masseuses to provide an extra “touch” in their sessions, which is a key part of the massage, as it can be difficult to work out if the masseuse is genuinely good at their job.
“We have been working hard to make sure we can give our massage customers the best massage possible, and to ensure that they are not feeling overwhelmed and exhausted after they have had their massage,” the company’s statement said.
“We understand that many people have asked us to increase the length of their sessions or have them take longer breaks, but we need to do this in order to ensure our massage sessions are enjoyable for everyone.”
The company added that it was also working to make the massage sessions more efficient.
“We are constantly striving to increase our team’s productivity and efficiency, which will ensure our masseuses are working more efficiently and efficiently with clients,” the statement said, adding that the changes would come into effect in mid-2018.
Meanwhile, the Irish Examiner is reporting on the new Irish Government-backed programme to provide a massage in the country, which aims to boost the economy.
