I would guess that most businesses are probably not aware how much job stress is adversely affecting their employees and costing their company. It is estimated to cost American companies more than $300 billion a year in health costs, absenteeism and poor performance. — UMASS: Lowell’s Center for the Promotion of Health in the New England Workplace
Eighteen years ago when I graduated from Massage Therapy School and became certified as a deep tissue sports massage therapist, chair massage wasn’t too common. I used it as a means of promoting my business, to build my clientele, at various events and several businesses. Today corporate chair massage is commonly employed by large and small companies all around the country.
Boosting employee productivity, relieving stress, and preventing repetitive use injuries that can lead to extreme pain, muscle weakness, and absenteeism, are only a few of the benefits realized by companies utilizing corporate chair massage services. Bottom line: Happy, healthy employees are productive.
How does it work? I bring my comfortable portable chair to your workplace and give 10-15 minute sessions to help relieve muscle tension and pain it causes. A ten minute session calms your nervous system, lowers your blood pressure, increases your circulation, eliminates headaches,and makes you happier, which boosts your energy and alertness. Employees receiving chair massage also learn to identify and release tension on their own before it becomes a problem.
Companies are using On-Site Chair Massage to improve workforce morale and loyalty by demonstrating how much they care about their employees, and also boosting their productivity and profitability.
Ken’s chair massage sessions are a valuable benefit to employees and to our company. We’re not only helping decrease work comp costs and health care costs, it also helps to retain employees. We want to keep people and a good way to do that is to motivate them and show them we care. Cathy D., Benefits Coordinator
