Seated chair massage in the workplace
Something a little different today guys, with working so much I often get asked about my chair arrangements and how i manage to sit such long hours so thought I would go indepth over it.
We all know that office work space can be quite stressful, and since we spend there about 40 hours a week, this can very easily affect our daily lives. So what can employers do to alleviate that stress?
One of the answers that is gaining popularity lately is seated chair sports massage. Some companies offer them at times of high stress, although many companies now offer them also on a regular basis. This is a fully clothed massage performed by a professional therapist in a chair that is designed specifically for massage. It is relatively cheap (10-15 dollars per person), and it takes only about 15 minutes, but it can have a lasting effect that goes on for even weeks.
Seated chair massage is excellent for combating health issues that usually arise on account of office work – it relieves backache, straining of the neck, but also boosts blood circulation as well as lowers blood pressure.
Furthermore, it significantly reduces stress and depression caused by the workplace (some studies suggest up to even 85%!), and increases morale and productivity. An employer that incorporates chair massages into the workplace is showing that he cares for his employees’ health and well-being, which will certainly make them more loyal and competitive.
