Massage in the Workplace

Stress in the workplace affects absenteeism, productivity, and performance. According to  the The American Institute of Stress, “an estimated 1 million workers are absent every day due to stress.”  Clearly, unresolved employee stress costs companies money.

A look at some of the research shows that chair massage in the workplace can reduce muscular aches and pains and decrease stress and anxiety.

So, your employees are stressed. Their job performance is affected and they’re just plain unhappy.  What can you do? I know what it’s like to be stressed and in pain from long hours working at a computer trying to meet seemingly impossible deadlines. It was the highlight of my year when my employer paid to have chair massage for the entire office! Imagine what the difference in morale would have been if we’d had this service monthly.

Office chair massage is an affordable way to increase employee morale and decrease stress. It’s convenient; a massage therapist can come right to your office. It can be a one-time event or a regular offering. A chair massage can last from 5 to 30 minutes. The massage can be customized to each employee, addressing arms, hands, neck, shoulders, and back depending on their needs.
