Edenred Virike can not be used to pay for massage. According to Tax Authority’s policy regarding voluntary sport activity, the benefit is meant for supporting the employees’ own sport activities. Massage, physiotherapy, meditation exercises or mindfulness are not counted as sport activities, so they are not covered. However, our network has some physiotherapy and massage places, because they have other services – for example Personal Training – which can be bought with Edenred Virike.
