Massage is not just a luxurious spa experience anymore. Many organizations are beginning to offer massage therapy as a way to keep their employees happy and more relaxed and in the workplace. Massage therapy will increase work productivity and job satisfaction which in turn creates a better atmosphere for everyone in the office. Long hours and intense pressure to get things done can cause many different problems for employees such as lack of sleep, digestive problems, hypertension, frustration and many other stress related ailments. The physical demands can create real pain for the employee; tightening of the shoulders and neck causing headaches and lower back pain.
Corporate massage is becoming an important part of health and wellness in the workplace these days. Not only is it an incentive to come to work, but a good massage can keep employees happy and positive and healthy. Many large businesses have implemented some sort of wellness program. Corporate massage falls right into that category because of all the benefits that can improve their health and well being. For example, massage can help improve energy, and increase stamina. It releases endorphins which are amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller, increases circulation, improves concentration, and reduces fatigue.
To list a few more benefits from massage:
- Increased productivity
- Reduces absences
- Lessens depression and anxiety
- Relaxes tired and overused muscles
- Improves sleep quality
- Reduces blood pressure
- Helps to relieve tension headaches
- Relieves eye strain
- Strengthens immune system (keeping employees healthier)
- Enhances calm creative thinking
Each employer has an option of using a Massage Chair or Massage Table. Both will focus on the upper body areas and is completed in normal work attire. Regardless if you choose the table or the chair your employee will enjoy a comfortable and quite atmosphere. The table and the chair have a comfortable head rest lined with a clean soft disposable liner.
Just imagine how much relief can be given to those who sit behind a desk for long periods of time working on the computer and working with the phone. Massage can actually help prevent or relieve carpal tunnel syndrome, tension headaches, neck and back problems. This in turn reduces the absences and loss of man hours.
I bring everything needed, including massage equipment, supplies and music. All you need to provide is a quiet space and eager participants. Chair massage typically takes about 15, 20, or 30 minutes, no longer than a coffee break, but is far more effective! Plus, the cost is inexpensive. The client pays by the minute. The employer may choose to purchase massage for employees as an incentive or reward for a job well done.
I am a licensed Massage Therapist. I do carry my own insurance. I truly believe that I can make a difference in your workplace. I also provide clinical massage techniques that help ease the aches and pain of those who have injured muscles. Clinical massage includes sports massage, trigger point, deep tissue, and myofascial release. I also have experience in reflexology and acupressure.
Some therapists will only provide one type of technique and charge more for extras. My objective would be to give the best treatment possible to each employee who is suffering with pain. I also believe that it is important to give each client the information and tools that they can use for relief while they work or at home.
Inquire for pricing. The cost is payable by each individual. Considerations for cancellations are taken, but a repeated “no show” will be asked not to schedule in the future. A schedule of times and a sign up sheet is usually the best way to keep everyone organized and on time. Soon a routine is established without any interruptions to others who are working.
You will find that your workplace becomes a more positive, productive and caring environment.
