Last week’s blog was an introduction to why chair massage should be offered in the workplace. Still not convinced? Let me give you just three reasons why you should introduce chair massage to your team (don’t worry, I have more reasons waiting for next week’s blog!):
- Chair Massage boosts the immune system and promotes better sleep. If you want to reduce the number of sick leave occurrences, chair massage on a regular basis can help. It increases the activity level of the body’s white blood cells that fight off viruses, stimulates circulation and helps the body process lymph faster. That’s actually several reasons all rolled into one, but hey, who’s counting? Studies have also found, people who receive regular massages spend more time in deep sleep; helping them feel refreshed and rejuvenated the next day. CAN I GET AN AMEN?!
- Chair Massage helps relieve stress and reduce pain. Studies have found that a 15-minute massage, once a week, can reduce high levels of the stress hormone cortisol; which is linked to obesity, high-blood pressure and a suppressed immune system. It has also been proven effective in treating pain which includes, tight, sore and overworked muscles. Couple that with relief from depression, anxiety, hjgh blood pressure and other health-related concerns. CAN I GET A HALLELUJAH?!
- Chair Massage will instantly boost employee morale. If your employees are in a depressed, sad or anxious mood, their productivity drops. Elevate their mood by hiring an on-site, chair massage therapist so they can enjoy a quick but deeply satisfying massage after long hours of sitting in front of the computer. Make chair massage your employees’ new coffee break. This applies to those who are standing, bending, reaching, twisting and just plain working all day, everyday…regardless of the occupation. PRAISE, FOR MORALE HAS RISEN!
