Corporate Massage Frequently Asked Questions – Part 2

4. How often should we have a massage?

Corporate Massage is safe to have every day, but ideally we recommend fortnightly or monthly massages.
Regular office massage is more beneficial than just every now and then. Firstly, your employees will look forward to each visit, rewarding them for their hard work, creating goodwill and a positive office environment. Massage is a great way to demonstrate how much you value the health and well-being of your staff.  It shows you care about their welfare.

Corporate Massage has been proven to reduce stress and tension, especially when done regularly. Sometimes we get so busy we forget to breathe properly. Slowing your breath has an immediate and direct effect on the parasympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is your fight or flight response, your stress response to events.

This increases cortisol and adrenaline production in the body. If this is not balanced with a relaxation response from the parasympathetic nervous system, which is like putting the brakes on, your body will continue to remain in a stressed state effecting muscles, the immune system, and digestive system to name just a few.

Often massage will highlight areas of the body under stress, which you may not have known were affected. Corporate Massage improves circulation, nerve supply and increase removal of lactic acid from the muscles, having a detoxing effect on the whole body.

When you sit down to have your massage, we will remind you how to stop and take a few deep breaths, focus on yourself and how you are feeling  for a few minutes, rather than your workload. Being present in the moment and letting the chatter of the mind subside for even 5 minutes is so powerful and will help you regain your clarity. Of course you will be more productive for  the rest of the day.

Meditation for as little as twenty minutes has been proven to be equivalent to many hours of sleep. A twenty minute powernap can nourish, de-stress and rejuvenate the body without affecting the body’s sleep rhythms.

Our massage therapists know the benefit of even a 5 minute massage and daily see the positive reactions from people working in a variety of offices throughout  Australia.

Everyone in the office has their share of challenges and stresses throughout their working day, from the receptionist to the Sales Rep to the General Manager.

5. We work in a busy call centre and don’t have time to leave our desks.

Working in a call centre can be a stressful environment for employees, it is often a 24 hour call centre, noisy with voices and phones ringing constantly. Our roaming massage is ideal for the call centre environment. Our therapists quietly do the massage at their desk, so all the employee will have to do is remove their headphones and remain seated in their chair. We recommend 5-10 minute massages for this environment as it can usually be fitted in to a short off time for the phones. This actually increases productivity and creates a positive higher energy workplace. Watch the faces of your employees brighten and smile after a massage, our clients report to us how much better customer service is on the massage days.

They report when the employee is more relaxed they are actually more effective on the phones than if they were tired and stressed, meaning quicker resolution of problems, higher productivity and more friendly happy staff!

Who would you rather speak to on the phone? Someone tired,  who needs a coffee to keep them awake or someone who feels valued by their employer and feels refreshed and invigorated after receiving a neck and shoulder massage at their desk?

6. I want to reward my staff and make the massage a really special occasion for them each month.

We tailor the massage to suit the needs of your staff, your budget and time constraints.

Some clients have seated massage in a separate room each fortnight, some have table massage with oil for 30 minutes each. We provide very experienced, qualified therapists who can easily adapt the type of massage to suit the space and needs of your staff.
