WHAT IS IDLE?

Idle offers unique, immersive virtual reality relaxation services.  Because multiple relaxation techniques will be incorporated simultaneously, guests are able to attain full relaxation within shorter time frames (less than 30 minutes), making for more time- and cost-effective services for guests. Our services are currently offered in mobile form with our luxurious Zen Den – allowing us to come to your home, business, or event and provide the ultimate relaxation as a completely seamless experience.  

Massage

Our massage is provided by top-of-the-line, zero-gravity massage chairs that are designed to provide customizable massages and can fit persons of all sizes. As they have more than 2 “hands”, they can provide a full body massage in under 30 minutes. With unique 3D rollers that provide realistic feeling kneading on an “L-track” that spans your upper back to thighs, along with compression pads for your shoulders, arms, hands, calves, and foot rollers – These are not your grandfather’s old massage chairs!

Guided Meditation

VR-guided meditation, conducted by world-renowned practitioners, can take clients on a journey from the external to the internal and gently guide awareness from the beautiful outer visual environment to a calm inner meditative state. These services can be added to an existing massage experience or can be provided as a standalone service for your business – a Virtual Retreat! Meditation is proven time and again to not only improve mental health and wellness, but also has been shown to increase productivity when included within a business environment. We can bring the Silicon Valley model of employee wellness and success to your business or event at a fraction of the cost. 

Professional Team

Idle was founded and run by Greg Gutierrez – a PhD-trained biomechanist and exercise scientist, who worked as a professor of Physical Therapy for over 10 years. As a scientist and leading expert in exercise and human movement, Greg designed a cutting-edge experience that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen or felt. His primary goal is for you to have a completely relaxing  and seamless experience in a safe, clean, comfortable environment, which is critical to achieving total inner peace and calm. 

A Seamless Experience

Our beautiful and luxurious Zen Den can be brought to your home, business, or event and be set up almost anywhere. With a super-quiet propane generator in tow and a powerful air conditioner/heater, the Zen Den is clean, sleek, comfortable, and unobtrusive.  We can also schedule every individual session ahead of time, including the selection of which virtual environment you want to visit and what kind of massage you want, so that everything just feels easy! 

Do you have questions? You’re in the right place!

What exactly is Idle?2020-03-06T20:44:50+00:00

Idle is a completely new concept – A Virtual Reality (VR) Massage and Meditation Studio. We provide our guests with completely unique, immersive relaxation experience. Using ancient relaxation techniques, combined with cutting-edge VR technology, we can provide a superior level of relaxation in a more time- and cost-effective manner. In short, we transport guests on a mini vacation of peace and calm at a fraction of the time and cost!

Wait, what is Virtual Reality Massage? Like, is it a real massage?2020-03-10T16:13:09+00:00

Yes, it’s a real massage and its AWESOME! We have top-of-the-line, zero-gravity massage chairs with every feature imaginable to provide you with a completely relaxing massage experience. Our chairs fit people of all shapes and sizes and the massage is automatically customized for each person. On top of that, you are equipped with a VR headset and noise-cancelling headphones to transport you to real life locations from around the globe. From real Hawaiian beaches to secluded waterfalls, mountain landscapes, and forest streams… the relaxation is immersive and the possibilities are endless!  

Ok, so then what is Virtual Reality Meditation?2020-03-10T16:13:48+00:00

Meditation is an ancient technique that has been scientifically proven time and again to improve mental health and wellness, but is something many people struggle with, especially in today’s fast paced society. It can be quite difficult to clear your mind when we have all the distractions that are constantly around us. We invite you to plug your phones and other devices into our charging stations and transport to your favorite location! With guided meditations from world-renowned practitioners, you can be taken on a journey from a beautiful visual environment to a calm inner meditative state. We offer this service alone or in combination with your massage experience. 

Well, why shouldn’t I just go to a spa and get a massage from a real person?2020-03-10T16:15:25+00:00

While we greatly respect the traditional spa experience, Idle offers some very distinct and specific advantages over a traditional massage: 

1) Efficiency – By combining scientifically proven relaxation techniques with cutting edge VR  software, we provide much more immersive experiences that allow you to completely relax in a much shorter time. 

2) Price – Because of the use of technology to create more time-efficient experiences, we can offer our services at a significantly reduced cost of traditional spa experiences. 

3) Ease and Comfort –In our early market research, the number one reason cited for not seeking out massage was the need to disrobe, followed immediately by being touched by a stranger. At Idle, the only clothing we ask you to remove your shoes (but leave on your socks!) so the 360-degree rollers can work their magic on your tired feet!    

4) Diversity of Experience – Our VR environments are constantly evolving at Idle which allows us to offer a different experience each time you visit. Coupled with our range of massage programs and customizations the options are (almost) endless on how you choose to tailor your visit each time. Surprisingly, however, much of our early feedback highlighted a desire for LESS choices upon arrival and we are happy to accommodate that as well. Just let us know what intensity massage you’re looking for and we’ll handle the rest!  

Wow, that does sound awesome – how can I get in on that?2020-03-10T16:16:24+00:00

We created ‘The Zen Den’ – the world’s first mobile VR relaxation studio! This means we can be anywhere that relaxation is needed. The Zen Den will be stationed around the city and at local markets, fairs, and events. Check out our social media pages (www.facebook.com/IdleVR and @IdleVR on Twitter & Instagram) for the most current information on the Zen Den’s location. You can also book us to come to your business or event. 

Ok, how do I book the Zen Den for my business or event?2020-05-05T21:03:32+00:00

If you have any questions or would like to book the Zen Den for yourself, business or event, please use our ‘Contact Form’  and we will get back to you ASAP.    

What do I need to bring for my experience?2020-03-10T16:26:58+00:00

Just bring yourself and leave your troubles at the door. While no special equipment or clothing is required, we do suggest the following:      

  • Please wear comfortable clothing that is not too loose or baggy. Try to avoid wearing anything super short as it could be uncomfortable once you’re positioned in the chair. 
  • Wear socks or stockings. If you forget to bring socks to your appointment, no sweat – We’ll provide you a pair! 
  • If you wear eyeglasses and also have contact lenses, you should probably wear your contacts for your session. We can accommodate eyeglasses, however depending on the shape of the frame it may take some time to get them properly fitted in the VR headset. 
  • We have a strict DISCONNECT AND RECHARGE policy. At check-in, you can put your cell phones and smart watches in our lockers, which are equipped with charging stations for all phones. We don’t want any rings, buzzes, dings or chimes disturbing you while you’re in Idle! 
What else should I know?2020-03-10T16:30:28+00:00

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate children. Parental consent is required for any minors between the ages of 15 and 18.  

If you are pregnant, have suffered a recent injury, or are prone to seizures, we would advise against shifting into Idle. It is still possible to partake in one of our experiences, however you will be doing so at your own risk.  

Each experience is 10-30 minutes long, depending on your choice. Please come early and allow enough time to check-in and get yourself situated. We don’t want you to be stressed before your appointment!
