What are the benefits to employees from corporate massage?
If you’re looking for ways you can help improve the wellbeing of your employees then you may want to consider bringing in professionals to provide corporate massages to your employees.
Corporate messages offer a wide range of benefits for employees, helping them overcome some of the most common issues that affect modern workers, such as stress and fatigue. With regular 15-20 minute sessions of chair massage in the office, your team can see a range of benefits that will help improve employee physical and mental wellbeing and productivity at work.
What are the benefits of Corporate Massage?
Benefit 1: Helps Combat Fatigue.
Did you know that one of the most common causes of fatigue is muscle tension? When muscles are tight they can end up locking away vital resources such as Glucose and Oxygen, which means that crucial energy reserves aren’t accessible. When you give your team members a corporate massage you’ll be helping your team release these stores of energy back into their systems. Likewise, the massage will release a series of chemicals such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, all of which help combat stress and will help your employees relax and cope better with their day to day stresses.
Benefit 2: It improves blood flow
Massages of all types have a positive effect on various systems of the body, but the circulatory system is one of the areas where it has the biggest impact. A corporate massage will help improve the blood flow of your employees, which can help your team combat the afternoon slumps that afflict most individuals who are working a 9-5 job that has them stuck at a desk most the day. By increasing blood flow the body is able to better regulate itself by helping remove waste products from the body, enabling energy to be spent on other areas, thus allowing your team members to be more productive during the period where they otherwise would be slumping. The really beautiful thing though is that it doesn’t take much to improve blood flow, just 15 minutes of a corporate massage will allow your team to boost their blood flow, and help them become more alert, attentive to details and improve their overall productivity.
Benefit 3: Improved Employee Retention
Did you know that if you spend a lot of time in close proximity to someone and they’re stressed it can affect your own mental wellbeing? As stress is such a common issue that affects the majority of workplaces in the UK, it’s not surprising that most businesses have an underlying culture that can make the atmosphere not as pleasant as it could be, or as pleasant as managers and owners want it to be.
With a corporate massage as a part of your employee wellbeing program you’ll be able to help your employees relax and de-stress, which can help improve the atmosphere of your organisation in the short term. Over the long term you’ll also find that by showing you care and creating a positive atmosphere in your workplace you’ll reduce your turnover as your employees will recognise the effort that’s going to provide a positive work environment and won’t want to move on to other workplaces.
