The Corporate Touch Massage and Wellness story
On-site corporate chair massage with Corporate Touch Massage and Wellness originated in coffee shops and salons on the Northwest side of Indianapolis as well as downtown at MT Cup on Mass Ave. and in Nordstrom at Circle Centre.
Noticing it is human nature and thus corporate nature to be reactive instead of proactive, Corporate Touch Massage and Wellness began in 1998 serving the corporate Indianapolis area in response to an identified need: the physical, mental and emotional well-being of the employees, which affects everyone and every bottom line.
When people don’t feel well, they simply don’t do their best work.
Emotional blockages often affect our behavior, interfering with achievement of goals and a life aligned with our values.
Corporate Touch Massage & Wellness provides immediate benefits in stress reduction through massage therapy while going a step further by offering workshops, retreats, coaching and our newest program, Virtual Massage Therapy.
We hand select from our network of qualified licensed massage therapists for your event.

Suzanne Avery Lee
Virtual Massage Therapist
Suzanne has been a massage therapist since 1995. As a Kelley School of Business graduate in marketing and management, she began her career in Production & Inventory Control. It was then that she soon realized, “How we run our body is how we run our business”. Her vision for Corporate Touch included educating people on the parallels between bodies and businesses. So began her passion for bringing Wellness to Corporations. Her calling is to address the underlying stressors causing “knots,” both physical and emotional in our lives. She considers it a privilege to grow, heal and develop alongside others while helping them to rebuild from unhealthy relationships. When a client asked for a “virtual massage” in 2020, she thought her client was joking, but she soon realized that she has always benefited from a “virtual massage!”
Suzanne is available in person and virtually.
What is Virtual Massage?
Virtual Massage is Emotional Downloading for the purpose of identifying knots in our emotions and thoughts. Just as blockages occur in our muscles, our thoughts, feelings and behaviors get tangled and knotted, as well. Primarily we listen to identify your pain point. Similar to regular massage, we ask “Is there anything bothering you?” “What are your problem areas?” For many, simply talking and being heard brings awareness of what is kneaded (pun intended) to gain some control over your sense of well-being. Good for anyone healing from unhealthy relationship patterns, grief/loss, transitions.
Goals for these services include:
- Recognizing your body’s signals and needs so you’ll know when to take time out from things that worry you and how to replenish
- Getting past patterns that no longer serve you well
- Becoming your true self – professionally and personally
HEALTHY PEOPLE = HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS = HEALTHY ORGANIZATIONS
The positive side of challenges in 2020 has brought underlying knots to the surface. We ALL need community. How do we safely maneuver? What’s our area of most pain or discomfort? Coaching, Virtual Massage and Leadership Training assist in gaining these benefits:
- Recognizing if you are telling yourself the truth
- Redirecting thoughts and fears
- Reducing anxiety
- Honoring the grieving process and its healing effects
- Being present in the present
- Thriving in community
- Seeing more clearly
- Making a paradigm shift
Coaching can offer insight as to how we interact with ourselves and others.
Listening serves two purposes: 1) helps us hear ourselves so we can identify what is bothering us so we can be emotionally honest with ourself 2) Provides a safe person to believe us which is essential to healing
Support & accountability in taking the next step of growth and development is vital for maintaining healthy connections at work and at home with those you care about, including yourself!
