In 2016, musculoskeletal problems amongst the workforce accounted for a total of 30.8m* days of absence from work. A further 15.8m* days were lost due to stress, depression and anxiety.
While we certainly wouldn’t claim that an on-site staff massage will by itself solve these problems, we can tell you that our massage program is beneficial in several key ways by:
- Decreasing job-related stress – our massage therapy reduces the build up of tension in the muscles which are used to keep us still whilst working at a desk. By relaxing the body, a massage triggers the release of chemicals (oxytocin) which counterbalance accumulated stress.
- Improving employee morale: It makes employees feel valued, seeing their company invest in their wellbeing and happiness.
- Improving productivity: a short break in the working day for a chair massage leaves employees invigorated and ready to return to their tasks with an enhanced focus.
