Are you looking for a way to boost morale in your workplace? Little perks can go a long way toward making employees feel more valued and happier in their jobs. One way to do this is by arranging monthly or quarterly office massages for your employees.
What is a chair massage?
A chair massage is a fully-clothed, seated massage typically focused on the neck, shoulders, and upper back. The massage therapist will bring a specialized chair designed to make this a comfortable experience. Massages last between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on how much time your staff can spare.
What are the benefits of office chair massages?
There are lots of benefits, both physical and mental, that a chair massage can offer your employees. In turn, your business will benefit as your staff will usually perform better at work as a result. Here are a few of the benefits you can expect:
- Reduce stress and burnout – Allowing your employees to take a short break from work with a relaxing massage can have long-term effects on stress reduction. With less stress, employees will be better able to handle work pressures and are less likely to suffer from burnout.
- Prevent muscle tension and injuries – Working at a desk all day, every day can leave employees with neck, back, and shoulder pain. Regular computer use can also cause other problems like repetitive strain injury. Massage helps to relieve muscle tension and prevent the occurrence of chronic pain or injury.
- Improve focus – Employees that are overtired, overworked, and stressed out will have a difficult time focusing at work. Since massage helps to improve sleep quality and reduce stress levels, employees will have sharper minds and be able to concentrate better on tasks.
- Better job satisfaction – Treats like office massages make employees feel valued because they see that you view their health and wellbeing as important. It also gives them something to look forward to. As a result, employees will be more motivated and report higher levels of job satisfaction.
