People like to feel appreciated.

Now I’m not a physcologist, so I’m not going to get into how or why it is, but everyone knows that bubbly feeling you get after someone notices your hard work.

Positive reinforcement is a great way to show gratification for a job well done, and it’s pretty easy to do.

I’ve lived the corporate desk job life, so I’m no stranger to some good ol’ company wide positive reinforcement. I’ve seen it in the form of donuts, pizza, nachos, cake, ice cream, and even lefse. Nothing screams job well done like a heaping pile of carbs.

Don’t get me wrong, I love food. I would do pretty much anything short of commiting crimes for a donut. But as someone who gained 10lbs after taking my first desk job, I’m the first to say that pizza parties might not be the healthiest way to thank your employees.

Chair massages are a great way to bring the healthy benefits of a massage right into your workplace. Not only is it a healthy benefit to offer employees, the business itself sees positive change as well.

Here’s how!

Happy Workers

Chair massage, like traditional massage, has many health benefits both physically and mentally. Employees can enjoy these benefits while getting a much deserved break from their everyday tasks!

  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Relieves headaches
  • Boosts mental focus
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Improves the quality of your sleep
  • Promotes relaxation
  • Prevents injuries
  • Reduces symptoms of carpal tunnel
  • No sugar crash
  • Jeans still fit 2 months after starting position

Happy Company

Like I said, on-site chair massages can also be beneficial to businesses themselves.

Companies only perform as strong as their employees perform. Creating a happy, healthy workforce is the perfect prescription for a happy, healthy company!

Here are a few company wide benefits of chair massages:

  • Improves productivity
  • Lowers sick leaves
  • Increases retention
  • Unique benefits to attract potential employees
  • Creates a sense of loyalty to the company
  • Boosts morale
  • Decreases health Insurance costs
  • Employees don’t suffer from that 2 p.m. feeling after stuffing 10 slices of pizza in their face
  • Good looking company holiday photo

Next Steps

I’m in no way saying to stop serving food at your workplace. (Seriously, that’s not what I’m saying. I don’t need an angry mob of disgruntled workers at my office.) But if you are interested in hosting an on-site chair massage event for your company, please reach out to me at nancy@restdaymassage.com. I’d love to treat your employees to some self care!
