Zen Body Therapy in Winchester, VA provides office massages to corporations and businesses. Every workplace atmosphere varies from office to office, and some corporate cultures are more physically and mentally stressful and exhausting than others. Your office may have deadlines, projects, busy seasons, and customer services that can be rather stressful at times. Stress often leads to decreased employee productivity because to do good work, one has to feel good as well.
Office massages with an experienced Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) seek to alleviate some of the uncomfortable neck, back, and shoulder stiffness, aches, or pain sometimes caused by work related stress and other factors. Employees can enjoy lengthy full body massages in their own time, but office massages let employees know and understand that their employer truly cares about how they feel while at work – leading to satisfied and productive employees.
Office Massages with a Massage Chair
Instead of a massage table and undressing like a typical massage, office massages use the convenience of massage chairs. Many of the common areas of body tension and uncomfortability such as the back, neck, and shoulders can be massaged effectively enough to produce tremendous results, relaxation, and relief. The office massage doesn’t have to be very long, and even a few minutes can really benefit employees and the workplace environment as a whole.
Office Massages Improve Employee Health
Traffic is just another element to stress which can physically manifest in the body along with repercussions resulting from poor posture and sitting habits.
Employees also may have more sites of tension on their body than they are willing to admit because they don’t wish to complain for whatever reason and this discomfort inevitably reduces productivity in the long run.
Massage therapy can relieve tension all over the body through numerous proven health benefits including the reduction of blood pressure, improvement of joint and muscular functions, and boosting the body’s immune system. Massages may alleviate symptoms of arthritis and other uncomfortable strains which employees may have developed from work-related repetitive use injuries.
Would You Like to Increase Office Productivity?
Busy workplaces often have many things going on at once, and some periods of the year present more stressful challenges such as tax season, holidays, or deadlines for important projects. Office massages help to refresh and reinvigorate your busy employees so they can keep pushing ahead while having a relaxed, level head on work.
Even though a office massage may be somewhat brief, there are several significant benefits of massage therapy that can increase the productivity of employees. When our minds are deeply relaxed from a massage therapy treatment, it doesn’t turn into laziness. On the contrary, relaxation through massage therapy relieves mental fatigue while promoting clearheadedness and the stimulation of the brain’s “feel good” neurotransmitters which can help employees to make sharper and more creative work decisions on difficult tasks.
An employee who is feeling better overall is going to perform more efficiently through the day. Think about it – each time an employee is physically or mentally uncomfortable, they have to spend unproductive time at work thinking about the discomfort. Employees who are more content and relaxed at work contribute positively to a conducive work atmosphere, which often immediately translates into increased productivity. Routine office massages will make employees look forward to this extra relaxation at work and will be quite thankful for the experience.
Demonstrate Your Employee Appreciation and Enhance Retention
Employees should be able to look forward going to work each day. Knowing that their employers are looking out for employees’ well-being can be incredibly meaningful to them and may increase their loyalty to the company. Workplace environments are not always as supportive to employees as they could be to promote employee retention and job satisfaction. By allowing workers to briefly relax and and take a pause from the normal work day to enjoy a professional office massage from an experienced massage therapist, employers send a strong message to employees expressing how they are appreciated and valued beyond the important work they do.
