Massage in the office is good for you and for business
Have you ever been sitting at your desk rubbing your aching shoulders thinking about how good it would be to have a massage right now? Well… well people has your back (literally)! Not only can we come into your office and look after your people, but there
are some great evidence backed reasons for doing it too.
5 reasons why massage in your office is a great idea
1. Reduces stress in the workplace
With stress and mental health coming more into focus in recent years, it is great to see research suggesting frequent massage reduces cortisol, which is a major stress hormone. High levels of cortisol have been linked to high blood pressure, suppressed immune system function and obesity.
2. Increased productivity
For the past 20 years, there have been studies linking massage to improved brain power and productivity. Taking a break for a massage is also a great way to give your brain a few moments to recharge and make you more productive when returning to work.
3. Reduced pain
Massage has proven to be an effective treatment for reducing pain and muscle tension. Studies have also found that massage can help people suffering from headaches, digestive disorders, sports injuries, joint pain, fibromyalgia and lower back
pain. Whilst we always highly recommend dealing with pain in a comprehensive way, massage in the workplace can be a valuable tool.
4. Improves sleep.
Fatigue is a major cause of lost productivity and injury in the workplace. People who receive regular massages spend more time in deep sleep, which is the restorative stage of the sleep cycle. This leads to workers who are coming to work refreshed and
5. Helps keep people happy.
With 87% of employees considering wellbeing packages when choosing an employer and 58% of millennials considering wellness programmes extremely important when making a job decision, regular office massage is an easy to implement and cost-
effective component of your overall workplace wellbeing strategy. Your people will love it and you for providing it for them.
