If your company wants to…

Why not consider on-site massage?
On-site massage is a fast, effective and versatile form of therapeutic treatment. It concentrates on the back, shoulders, neck, arms and hands. The client sits in an ergonomically designed chair for maximum comfort.
No oils are used and the client remains fully clothed throughout the massage, making it practical and non-disruptive.
Sessions can last between 10 and 30 minutes per employee, depending on which package you decide is best for your company. And because they take place at your premises, no time is lost due to travel.

As an employer you are already well aware of the negative financial effect lost working days have on your business.
But are you aware that massage can help alleviate one of the major reasons staff take unscheduled time off, namely musculoskeletal problems?
Musculoskeletal problems include neck and back pain, ULDs (Upper Limb Disorders) and RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury).
According to research commissioned by the Government’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE), 213,000 people in work had a musculoskeletal upper limb or neck disorder that was caused or made worse by work in 2007/08.
This same research also shows that an estimated 2.8 million working days were lost in 2007/08 due to RSI. This cost employers around £300 million in lost working time, sick pay and administration.
On-site massage can save you money
Massage has been with us for centuries and is particularly effective in both preventing and treating musculoskeletal problems.
By providing your employees with regular access to massage, your company will save money in the long-term by reducing the number of working days lost and the associated costs.
On-site massage can increase productivity
If you’ve ever suffered from neck or back pain, or RSI you will know how debilitating it can become. It saps your energy, leaving you unable to perform at your best, and can ultimately lead to time off work.
Regular massage is known to leave you feeling relaxed and revitalised. In other words, ready to work hard and perform at your best.
On-site massage can reduce absenteeism
Massage can prevent and treat neck and back pain, ULDs and RSI.
If you are providing your employees with regular massages then their chances of being off work due to musculoskeletal problems are significantly reduced.
On-site massage can improve staff morale and motivation
Regular massage is a clear demonstration of your commitment to your employee’s well-being. It shows that you care.
Massage is a benefit that staff value. This can lead to greater company loyalty and increased staff retention.
It is also something that potential new employees are likely to consider when offered a role with your company.
On-site massage can help reduce stress
Massage can play an important role in your company’s stress management programme. The World Health Organisation now describes stress as a ‘worldwide epidemic’.
The latest HSE figures indicate that self-reported work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for an estimated 11.4 million lost working days in Britain in 2008/09, costing industry millions of pounds.
By tackling stress you are likely to reduce sick leave and the number of lost working days, once more saving your company money in the long-term.
You are also fulfilling your legal obligation
As an employer you have a legal duty to ensure that you are taking steps to prevent the occurrence of risks of injury or illness, which are reasonably foreseeable in relation to your employees.
One of the ways you can do this is by providing regular massage that will help prevent the main musculoskeletal problems.
Include on-site massage at events to impress your customers and clients
Office massage at work needn’t be reserved just for your employees.
If you are planning a conference, exhibition or promotion and want to make it memorable why not provide on-site massage at the event?
This is a great way to stand out from your competitors and show your clients that you are interested in their well-being as well as your staffs.
