One of the main contributors to our everyday stress is our workplace. It costs employers billions of dollars a year on lost productivity and healthcare costs. So, more and more employers are recognizing that a regular massage can reduce the physical and mental effects of stress, thus reducing burnout and stress related diseases.
How much good can really happen in ten, fifteen or even twenty minutes? The answer turns out to be: A LOT! Studies have shown that the brain begins to recharge in just a few minutes. And with just the right touch, tired muscles feel rejuvenated right away.
Rested workers are relaxed and ready to get down to business. In addition, massage puts them in a good mood – the better to engage with customers or do whatever they do – and leaves them feeling quite upbeat about your company.
