As a result, employees take a short break from the stresses of the day and unwind, giving them a chance to reflect and de-stress before returning to work. The office massage service provided by Heather is undisruptive with head and shoulder massages provided at desks or in a discreet area of the office, entirely at the employees’ discretion. Massage therapies are proven to support a whole host of health and wellbeing factors and make for an attractive workplace offering. Let’s take a look at why corporate massage is so beneficial to employees and their employers.

The office massage benefits to employees

Reduced stress

Massage therapies have been proven to reduce the stress levels in those receiving the treatment. With stress levels linked to worsening health conditions such as asthma, heart disease, depression and more. As well as inhibiting our ability to effectively manage challenging situations and workloads.

Helps to soothe anxiety

Studies have proven that receiving a massage can significantly decrease anxiety levels. Whether you are a frequent sufferer of anxiety or have experienced it before, you don’t need a professional to tell you that something to combat that feeling is a soothing positive.

Relieves muscle tension and headaches

Sitting under the office lights at a desk for long periods of the day can cause serious discomfort in humans. Despite the best efforts of employers to ensure desks are set up to support posture, hunching over a computer or sitting on a chair for long periods of time can begin to take its toll on our bodies. Massage helps to relieve the tension built up in the muscles which will relieve pain, discomfort and related tension headaches.

Provides resbite

Stepping away from emails for five minutes, provides an opportunity to reflect and unwind. Sometimes, the best ideas come to us when we walk away for a moment and relieve the pressure. On return, perhaps that email you were about to send is a bit… punchy?
