Workplace wellbeing – how massage contributes.

By September 10, 2018News

With so much of our lives spent at work, it’s not hard to see why two-thirds of employees believe that responsibility for their wellbeing rests with their employer. But where does this leave employers? With such a potentially broad topic, it’s easy to see why some companies are overwhelmed at the thought of introducing workplace wellbeing.

Workplace massage is designed to invigorate and rejuvenate in a short space of time. If carried out by a group of professionals it will boost morale and relieve stress amongst your most important asset – your staff.

Relaxation techniques are part of a healthy and positive working environment and can play a huge part in any workplace wellbeing strategy, no matter what the industry, but particularly those which require staff to be seated at a desk for large chunks of their day. Many office workers experience neck and shoulder pain which can eventually lead to other problems including persistent headaches.

We have years of experience in the corporate massage industry and have provided onsite massage to a wide range of clients from various industries. Here are some of the most frequent comments we receive about the effects of our services.

Stress reduction

Perhaps the most common feedback we receive is the impact our services have on stress levels of workers. Stress plays a huge impact on the body, and reducing it can help productivity and reduce the amount of time employees spend off sick.

Improves mood

Massage can aid in the improvement of anxiety and depression by encouraging your body to release endorphins. Many of our clients comment on how much better they feel mentally after a massage.

Relieves pain and tension

Sitting at a desk, often with bad posture can take a huge toll on your body. A common complaint is neck and shoulder pain, which we are told is significantly reduced or relieved completely after a visit from our team. So, if you’re scratching your head about how you can improve your workplace wellbeing, give us a call for a chat about the different ways the Olive Massage team could improve the wellbeing of your employees.
