The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) has partnered with home-furnishings store IKEA for its Bring Your Own Friend appreciation event on Jan. 14.

“IKEA’s tagline is The Life Improvement Store and they will be providing many experiences for their customers throughout the day, such as interior design tips, closet organization, cooking demos and chair massages,” reads a statement on the NCBTMB’s website.

Massage therapists who are certified through the NCBTMB are invited to volunteer at this nationwide event, performing onsite seated massage at one of IKEA’s 38 stores.
