Corporate Days in the Workplace

We all know how important it is to have a healthy and happy workforce and I would like to offer this service to you and your staff for taster sessions of Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Back Massage, whatever your preference, in the workplace.

How many days (and company money) are lost through staff illness because of stress, tiredness etc?

The effects of stress in the workplace can range from headaches, fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration, lack of motivation because of poor morale and unhappy working relationships. This in turn, leads to absenteeism, costly sick leave and finally resignation.

We hear a lot on the news and radio about repetitive strain injury and faulty posture. These are the two main causes of back pain and muscle tension, caused from sitting in the same position for long periods and using a keyboard or mouse repetitively, which in turn leads to aching or painful muscles usually in the shoulders, neck, back, wrists and hands.

The benefits to both employers and employees for taking a 15-20 minute break are many:

Benefits to Employees:

  • General health and wellbeing is improved
  • Feeling of self worth improved
  • Motivation
  • Good working atmosphere
  • Increase awareness of poor health through stress
  • Employees feel valued
  • Reduction and prevention of stress and fatigue
  • Mentally more alert

Benefits to Employers:

  • Absenteeism is reduced
  • Employees are more effective
  • Staff’s performance improves
  • Productivity increases
  • Increase in profitability
  • Employee’s morale is boosted
  • Helps to create happier and healthier staff
  • Cost due to ill-health is reduced
  • Can be used as a recruitment tool

Reflexology is an extremely effective treatment in the workplace as it has the advantage that it requires the minimum of undressing – only access to the feet is required.

Reflexology's main benefit is that it is able to balance the system as a whole, which in turn can lead to increased energy levels, increased mental alertness and creativity and stimulation of the immune system. Treatments usually last between 30 and 45 minutes depending on requirements, however, a taster session of 15-20 minutes in the workplace can be beneficial if done on a regular basis.

Indian Head Massage is also a completely suitable treatment for the workplace as it is performed through light clothing from a seated position and benefits can be seen from very short treatments lasting from as short as 10 minutes. No oils are used in the hair in workplace environments so that there is little disturbance to the client’s hair.

Relaxation Massage

This massage will stimulate the body’s circulatory system, creating a warmth to relax the body physically and mentally. A sequence of movements to relieve tension promoting a deep relaxation to the muscles.

Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Thai Foot Massage and Swedish Back Massage promote feelings of well-being, with the recipient feeling calm and relaxed, however, also energised and alert.

Statistic have shown that regular use of Reflexology and Indian Head Massage, whilst promoting feelings of relaxation and well-being, can reduce sickness and absenteeism, which is therefore a direct economical benefit to your company, as well as increased well-being and productivity of your employees.

In a MORI poll, stress was cited as having a negative effect on the health of over a third of the working population. It is estimated that up to 75% of all illness is stress related.

These treatments are particularly beneficial to office-based staff and people who do a lot of driving. People who are sitting at a desk for long periods of time, where muscles are not being stretched and drivers – taxi drivers, lorry drivers – anyone sitting in one position for long periods of time. Many of our clients have suffered from repetitive strain injury and over time, can cause the body to break down in many ways. If caught early enough, however, any one of our treatments can help achieve the body’s own healing process to bring it back to equilibrium.

I cover many areas, including East London and all of Essex and I bring all my own equipment - all I ask is for a quiet room to work in.

I have been qualified for a number of years now and am a fully paid up member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and also fully insured with them.

If you are interested in booking or have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Bookings are for a minimum of 2 hours only.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.
