Do you run a successful business?
Would you like to support and maintain a healthy working environment where employees and business can flourish?
One of the things that I hear most from my clients is that even though they enjoy their job, they can regularly feel 'tired' 'stressed' and 'sore' when at work.
How does that effect their experience of work? Their performance? Their overall health? Their attitude towards colleagues and customers? The amount of time they take off due to sickness ? Stress? Fatigue?
People come to see me outside of work because they want to feel less tired, less sore, less stressed and less anxious. I have learned from talking to people that if they had more free time they would come more often.
Most of us spend most of our time at work. When we’re not at work, we want to enjoy ourselves right? Maybe we are committed to further education or to training for a sport. Maybe we have a family or pets to care for. Maybe we have a hobby that we want to devote our free time to. Or maybe we just want to lay flat out on the sofa undisturbed with a good book and a tub of ice cream. Not to mention the daily admin, housework, cooking etc ...
Now, I would gladly take a couple of hours out of my day to schedule a full massage appointment. However it’s just not always possible. I also appreciate from experience that it can be quite daunting to think about having to get undressed or climb on and off of a massage table.
I asked my clients if they knew people who would like a massage but didn't have the time.
The answer was 'lots.'
When I first began studying massage therapy, I used to practice chair massage on my colleagues. They loved it. I didn't perform any measured or scientific research, I just wanted to practice my skills, apply my knowledge and see the results.
People began to comment on how their mood improved, they were less distracted by aches and pains and they felt more content and focused.
It is this experience and the comments that I have received from clinic based clients, that have encouraged me to promote on site chair massage.
When I began my massage therapy career, I had two desired outcomes . One was to become the best therapist possible and the other was to introduce massage therapy to as many people as possible.
I will be working towards those goals for as long as I can imagine and loving every minute of it and I invite you to join me, in optimising the physical, mental and emotional health of your team.
Would you like to try it?
I can come to your premises (within the Edinburgh area) to provide effective, seated massage for you and your team.
Seated chair massage is a very comfortable and practical way of relieving stress, muscular tension and pains in the head, neck, back, shoulders, arms and wrists while fully clothed.
The massage that I apply uses a combination of Swedish, trigger point, myofascial and remedial techniques.
I was trained in this particular modality by Ros Cope of the Massage Training Institute.
Feet may be massaged if preferred, this will require 2 standard office chairs.
Do you know that stress in the workplace is on the increase and now costs the UK industry £14 million per day?
Approximately 250,000 employees take sick leave due to stress on a daily basis in the UK.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, as many as one in five people are suffering from high levels of work-related stress. An estimated 500,000 individuals report experiencing stress at a level they believe made them ill.
The cost to Britain's economy is estimated to be 6.7 million working days lost per year. The cost to UK society as a whole is approximately £11bn.
Only 3% of UK organisations provides some form of occupational health care at work. Why is this, when it is so well documented that programmes implemented to improve the health of people at work greatly benefits both employer and employee.
“If UK businesses are to succeed in the national and international market place, companies need the competitive advantage of highly trained, healthy and motivated teams. To achieve this, employers must help their staff to not only minimise the risks of poor health, but gain the many benefits from good health.” Andrew Cubie, Chairman, Scotland's Health at Work Steering Group.
On site chair massage may be used as a regular incentive, as a thank you after a particularly busy period or as a regular investment in the long term health of the business and the people who make it.
