Chair massage is by far the best and easiest way for your organization to begin a wellness program. For one, post a sign-up sheet that onsite chair massage is being offered and watch it fill up faster than any program your organization can offer. Even better, offer chair massage on a day where people take off early or call off, and experience a miracle where on chair massage day, absenteeism practically disappears.
Research confirms that massage has many benefits that companies are beginning to realize are valuable for their organization and employees. According to the Mayo Clinic, massage increases productivity, reduces pain, improve mood, and increases energy. Studies have found that even a brief 15-minute chair massage once a week can reduce stress. All of which are beneficial to any organization. Chair massage does not require doing anything but showing up.
