As a business owner or manager, it is important to find ways to keep your employees healthy, happy, and relaxed. This will reduce the amount of turn-over in your staff. Saving you from having to spend money and time training new people. Also, happy workers will work harder and smarter, increasing your bottom line. Giving a chair massage to each employee every week is a great way to help your company. Here are just a few benefits everyone will receive from this treat.
No matter what the job, there is bound to be some stress. Increased stress leads to more mistakes and accidents. A chair massage is a very good way to soothe tension in the body's muscles and release endorphins and cortisone to help relieve stress. Employees will be more focused and able to deal with the things that cause the stress.
Reduce Muscle Pain
Sitting in a chair and working on a computer all day can cause soreness in the shoulders, neck, and back. Standing all day to work with customers also puts a strain on your back and shoulders. Lifting and moving things is another way to cause back and neck pain. There are many tasks performed while working that cause stiff or sore muscles. A chair massage will relieve the soreness and keep everyone working well. It will not only increase production but will reduce the chance of a worker's compensation claim due to a work-related injury.
Many headaches that start at work are due to holding tension in your neck and facial muscles. A chair massage will relieve the tension and ease any headache pain. Other headaches are due to eye strain from staring at a computer screen; these headaches too will be relieved with a chair massage.
Prevents Repetitive Motion Strain Problems
A chair massage is performed on the client's back, shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, and face. If any of your workers sit at a desk and type or make other repetitive motions throughout the workday, they run the risk of injury. Carpel tunnel syndrome and tendonitis are just a few injuries they may get. Massage is a great way to reduce these conditions from occurring.
Everyone loves to feel appreciated. Offering your employees a weekly chair massage will let them know that you appreciate their hard work and care about their health. Of course, the business will also see the benefits of this perk.
