Whether you call it seated massage, chair massage, or on-site massage, there’s no denying it’s a fast growing business tool. On-site massage uses a specially designed massage chair in which the fully clothed client sits comfortably. Seated massage includes bodywork and somatic techniques which can be provided in a variety of settings, including businesses, airports, special events and fundraisers.
Invest in Your Business
With a growing number of businesses providing and encouraging wellness programs within their ranks, On-Site Massage just makes sense. Employers realize that healthy employees means increased marketplace competitiveness. Obviously, healthy workers are much more productive. But wellness goes well beyond the antiquated idea of health being the absence of illness. Wellness implies a proactive approach to achieving optimum physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Prevention is an essential part of any wellness program. Workplace wellness programs have been shown to reduce worker’s compensation claims, and to reduce time-off due to illness and injuries.
On-site Massage is a convenient, safe and cost-effective addition to workplace wellness programs. Not only does it help to boost morale and provide valuable health benefits, but it can be utilized by all sizes and kinds of businesses: from small offices to large companies.
Workplace Health Issues
Some of the most costly health issues for businesses include high levels of stress, repetitive motion injuries, and physical issues associated with sitting for extended periods of time. High stress levels have been linked to many diseases and have been shown to impair the immune system which leaves employees more susceptible to illness like the common cold. The results of these health issues to businesses have become astronomical in regards to lower productivity, lost working days, workers compensation claims, and other general healthcare expenses.
