Health is increasingly important in today's society. One area that has seen a large increase in the past few years has been corporate health and wellness programs. With so many diseases and health problems being preventable, many companies are working on wellness programs for their employees.
“It’s amazing to learn that 55% of workers identified a workplace wellness program as an instrument in improving their overall well-being. In fact it equates to $250 million in savings in lowered health costs and a 50% reduction in high blood pressure among employees.”
-Dr. Roger Sahoury, author of Gladiator’s Guide to Corporate Health & Wealth
Some elements of these programs might be a company weight loss competition with some businesses offering rewards or incentives to lose weight, others might be with a goal of lowering blood pressure. Some offer different approaches such as bringing in a dietitian once a month to talk to employees about eating healthy, and the benefits of certain foods. Some larger companies may do a blood drive on location a few times a year. But did you know that some companies offer massage to their employees?
Chair massage is a fully clothed massage of the head, neck, shoulders, and back. Studies have shown just how beneficial a chair massage at work can be. Stress in the workplace can result in low morale,and an increase in anxiety and depression. However, a quick 15 minute chair massage can lower stress, anxiety, and depression. Employees also noted that they had higher job satisfaction after receiving a massage, as well as an increase in job performance. This is in addition to the many other benefits that massage can provide, such as increased circulation and flexibility, and lowering blood pressure.
