Conference Calls, Business Meetings…and Massage?

Your calendar shows a full agenda for your day at the office—conference calls, meetings, massage. Yes….massage. A specially designed portable chair allows Massage Works to offer on-site chair massage to local Fairfield County businesses and private events. Participants are fully clothed, and usually receive a ten-to-fifteen-minute session. In this economic market, companies are looking for low-cost ways to reduce health care costs and to improve employee performance, thinking outside the box to find innovative, creative ways to save time, money and offer something new and fun. Massage therapy is a low-tech, low-cost and highly effective solution. The National Institutes for Health conducted a study on fifteen-minute chair massages in the workplace that showed massage increased productivity and mental alertness, boosted morale, lowered stress levels and reduced work-related injuries and absenteeism. All of this adds up to a cost-effective wellness program. Local facilities that are embracing the benefits of chair massage run the spectrum, from large corporations such as Goodrich and Cartus, to nursing homes, small companies and private events. The sessions can be set up as a regularly scheduled program or as a one-time “perk” at a special event or wellness fair. Chair massage may just be the wave of the future. It is a win-win situation.
