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.

Corporate Massage Frequently Asked Questions – Part 1

1. Our office is pretty noisy and cramped, where would you do the massage?

Board rooms or meeting rooms are usually the best places as the doors can be closed to block out any office noise. We create a calm, inviting space with essential oils and soft relaxing music. Your employees will be more likely to relax in a private setting, away from distractions, than if the massage was at their desk.  If you don’t have a board room, partitions can be used to create a room in a quieter area of the office space or in the lunch room.

2. How long does the massage go for?

Our therapists are very experienced in providing seated massages and can do massages from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.

Ideally, we recommend 10-15 minute seated massages as this allows enough time to relax and work on areas of the body which have more tension.

We focus on the areas of the body which people working at a desk experience the most tension or pain; the neck, shoulders, lower back, arms and hands.

We tailor a corporate massage to suit your office environment, your time constraints, and the number of employees you have.

3. What type of chair do you use?

Our therapists have professional quality massage chairs and tables which they bring with them.

The massage chair is lower than an office chair and allows the client to lean forward and relax into the chair. Even sitting in the chair is relaxing and allows the therapist access to the spine to work on tight muscles.

Reviewing your Corporate Health Initiatives

As the start of 2012 becomes a distant memory it’s time to think about planning Workplace Health Initiatives.

Many organisations simply repeat what they have or have not been doing in previous years. Perhaps they tried Pilates or Corporate Massage a few years ago but that was then.

Isn’t there a new health & wellness fad that the HR department can implement?

What does your company do? Am I being unfair in my description of how some organisations operate?

I would love to hear your thoughts & comments.

We at Massage2Motivate in 2012 will continue providing exceptional Corporate Massage Services. As our regular clients grow we invite you to consider booking a regular seated massage for your staff each month or fortnight.

Your staff will love it and it’s so easy to organise, whether you have 10 or 1000 staff we have the capability to ensure the experience will be unforgettable and fun.

In case it’s been a while we can organise 5-20 minute office massages either in a separate room or at your workstation and it’s so reasonably priced.

Just remember all our mobile massage therapists are fully qualified and insured.

We look forward to uplifting your staff in 2012.

Happy New Year from all the staff at Massage2Motivate.

Office Massage for your Staff

Business can be challenging, some organisations find it difficult to provide simple benefits to their staff. While an extremely beneficial therapeutic massage at work may seem expensive, it’s actually a really cost-effective way to reward and motivate your staff. Office massage doesn’t require a lot of space and the massage is provided whilst the recipient is fully clothed.  In a 5 to 20 minute session an office massage can do wonders for staff motivation and productivity plus there is a real physical benefit.

Office Massage Can Help Relieve Stress

Many workplace environments can be stressful particularly as we approach the end of the financial year.  From challenging deadlines to demanding customers, workers throughout Australia need to de-stress and unwind, if only for a few minutes. Luckily office massage can provide employees with a special moment every week, fortnight or month in the busy working environment.

The Massage2Motivate method:

Office massage begins when the Massage2Motivate therapist arrives 10-15 minutes before the session start time.  Once the employee is seated comfortably (and fully dressed) in the chair, our massage experience begins. Our fully qualified and insured therapist uses skilful muscle manipulation to relax that tense and knotted feeling. The therapist may also use pressure point therapy.

Corporate Massage works and has noticeable results

Even though the benefits of office massage therapy might sound rather “new age,” there’s no question that the ancient art of massage has a long and successful history when it comes to relieving muscle aches, reducing tension and stress, improving mental clarity and increasing productivity for employees all over the Australia.

Massage2Motivate provides Massage in the workplace and at Events throughout Australia, call us today on 1300 733 109 and experience the Massage2Motivate difference.

Office Massage for your Staff

Many Australian companies are now providing regular massage sessions at work as an investment to their employees’ health and wellbeing. Office massage has become increasingly popular. Office massage can relieve stress in the workplace, it can improve workers’ health and it can create a better and more productive environment in the office. Back pain and stress are some of the most common causes of sick leave in Australia. Absenteeism due to back problems and stress-related conditions is estimated to be costing Australian companies billions of dollars every year whilst stress is one of the leading causes of staff absences in the workplace.
Regular office massage sessions are an easy and cost-effective way to promote employee wellbeing and to reduce work-related stress. This in turn can help to prevent absenteeism and to increase productivity.
So, what is office massage? In a typical workplace massage session a massage therapist comes to the office with a specifically designed massage chair. The recipient of the massage sits in the chair comfortably and fully clothed. No oils are used, which makes seated chair massage a convenient option for the workplace. A staff member usually receives a massage that can lasts between 5 & 20 minutes, longer and shorter sessions are available as well.
The massage focuses on the neck, the head, the back and the shoulders, the arms and the hands. The sequence used in office massage can help to relieve muscular tension, ease pain in the neck and the shoulders, de-stress and relax, but also re-energise so that the employee returns to his or her desk rejuvenated and focused. As the massages are relatively quick office massage is not one of those treatments that can leave you too relaxed to work. A brief seated massage can help to clear the mind and can make one feel more alert than before.
So how employees benefit from office massage? A chair massage can ease tension and pain in the neck and shoulders and prevent headaches caused by tension and stress. Many office workers suffer from chronic tension and pain in the neck and shoulder area and frequent massage sessions at work can help to relieve even long-term pain. Regular massages can also being used to prevent repetitive strain injuries, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome, all very common conditions in the workplace today.
A regular massage is one of the most enjoyable ways to prevent stress at work. The massage chair can be placed in a separate room or in a corner where it will not disturb other workers. A chair massage does not require more time than a coffee break, but offers many more health benefits.
Regular office massage sessions can improve employee health and wellbeing which in turn can improve productivity, reduce sick days caused by back pain or stress, boost morale and improve worker loyalty. A relaxed team of employees works better and achieves better results than one that is under constant stress. Massage days at work are also an easy way to enhance a company’s public image as an employer of choice that cares for its workers.

Several studies have found that massage can ease stress and anxiety, reduce stiffness and pain in the body and even control blood pressure. As stress and back pain are some of the most common causes of sick leave in Australia regular massage sessions can be a cost-effective way to improve productivity and reduce sick days.
How often should a company offer massage at work? Some companies arrange weekly massage sessions for the staff whilst others prefer a monthly massage session for their employees. Some of our clients invite us to the workplace for special events.
Companies that have engaged Massage2Motivate have noticed how regular sessions can improve employee morale, productivity and performance. When employees feel they are being looked after, they also remain more loyal to the company and create better results.

Corporate Massage in the office

Many organisations offer massage in the workplace initially as a “thank you” to staff. However, more and more organisations are realising that corporate massage in the workplace also increases the overall productivity and morale of employees. The results are immediate and almost all employees that receive a massage say that they experience stress reduction and greater satisfaction from their jobs.

Since work can be stressful, it makes sense to make some form of stress relief readily available to staff.  Employers recognise that a regular massage can greatly lower the effects of stress. This in turn, reduces burnout and absences both long  and short term.

Corporate massage helps staff to get rid of stress and tension that occurs in the hustle and bustle of the modern workplace. Individuals can greatly benefit from receiving a massage. Massages use touch to treat the muscular parts of the body. There are many different types of massage therapy techniques and services that are available to organisations and corporate employees.

Massage2Motivate‘s Corporate Massage specialists will improve the physical health and emotional morale of you and your staff. The benefits of office massage are very wide-ranging. Office Massages can make a real and lasting impact in your business workplace or office. Staff feel valued and recognised and every recipient feels the benefits firsthand. It is this fact that makes massage such a valuable service to bring to your office environment.

Work Life Balance

The Best Way to reward Senior Executives

Executive salaries and their total remuneration packages including bonuses are common headlines in the press.

So what is the best way to reward and provide work life balance for Executives? It is clear to most; many Senior Executives have highly stressed and pressured roles. Travelling overseas or interstate may initially sound fun & exciting but for those with families especially, there is a huge cost due to constant separation from their partner and family. This is especially relevant if executives are travelling for extended periods or work requirements lead to long hours toiling at the office.

Massage2Motivate launched an initiative earlier this year that delivers Work Life Balance to Support the Senior Executive.

The Platinum Partnership is a unique healthy initiative that provides real benefits for the Senior Executive’s spouse and family; sometimes the forgotten support that is essential for every successful Executive!

The Platinum Partnership rewards and recognises the Executive’s spouse for the important role that they play.

Most organisations understand that keeping great staff is the key to every successful business. Simply increasing an Executive’s salary can be a short term solution.

Forward thinking companies have embraced the Platinum Partnership!  It differentiates their culture to ensure that their Executive’s achieve Work Life Balance through the health initiatives (not just massage) that each spouse receives.

In essence the Platinum Partnership is a unique Corporate Initiative that creates outstanding performance in the workplace and harmony in the home!

Have we caught your attention about this unique initiative??  Give us a call!

Will Massage WORK at my Event?

When an organisation holds an Event or Exhibition, the most important factor is to create a Positive, Memorable Experience for the attendees.

First, you want to draw attention to your stand; secondly you want them to remember being there; and thirdly to remember your product / service / name etc!

If you haven’t ever seen or experienced seated massage at an Event / Exhibition / Expo, then it makes sense to ask the following questions:

  • How can I attract people to my stand at our exhibition?

  • Will massage detract from what I am trying to exhibit?
  • Will massage at my event just put people to sleep?
  • People won’t come to our stand they’ll be too embarrassed to have someone touch them?

Or

  • Will people only come to my stand for a massage and then just leave?

Those who haven’t used or experienced Event Massage before have asked all of the above questions. But after using Massage2Motivate they realised what a crowd magnet event massage creates!!

After experiencing Massage2Motivate at an Event, attendees have left having had a positive, memorable experience!  They have had FUN, whether it be a Conference, Seminar, Tradeshow, Corporate Golf or Charity Event.

And of course, when attendees & participants have fun, the positive energy spreads like wildfire and everyone want to be a part of it!!!  This then creates an even bigger crowd.  People remember the event in more detail so the outcome is a SUCCESS!!!!

Massage at an event creates a lot of interest from participants and everyone who experiences the Massage2Motivate difference leaves happy and energised.

There’s No falling asleep with us!

Seated massage is fun and introduces a healthy caring aspect to any event; what a great way to have your Clients, Staff, Colleagues and other attendees to keep talking about you and what a great experience they had with your organisation??

We support a number of worthy charities and not for profit organisations at events. We are especially looking forward to donating our services again at the annual Heart Foundation Golf Day next month. There is nothing better than receiving a seated massage at the 9th tee to relax those sore muscles after a few hours of golf.

If your organisation is considering an event then give us a call. Massage2Motivate can make all the difference!  The experience is one to be remembered, give us a call!!

Remember Have fun!

Is price the most important consideration?

Is the cheapest price the best option?

We all love a bargain, and no one wants to get ripped off, right?  Many of us have gone for the “best price” and later, really paid for it!

Have you ever chosen the cheapest product or service? I have and I’ve lived to regret it. A number of years ago I purchased the bargain of the century – a flute for my daughter.   I was very pleased with myself; great brand, it was 40% off retail value.  What a bargain, I was chuffed at my clever research.

The fact that the seller took ages to respond; didn’t present all the facts didn’t make a difference; I was blinded by the ‘great price’!! The result?  It’s collecting dust and I purchased another one that actually works!

So what do they say; if you pay peanuts you get monkeys!

So how does this relate to massage in the workplace?

Well, now and again a new client will call us and the first they ask is “how much do you charge”, or “I just want to know the prices.”  Don’t get me wrong, price is a very real and important consideration but should it be the first and sometimes only consideration?

At Massage2Motivate we’re not the cheapest provider of massage; however we consistently exceed our clients expectations, and they always want us back! Regardless if the massages are fortnightly, monthly or a yearly event!  We are not forgotten, and it is for GOOD REASON!!

If you organise massages in the workplace or event massages what do you want to achieve?  Do you want to say at the end of the session, they were OK?  That was a bargain? We saved $50 or $100!

The feedback we get sounds a little like this:  “they were the best massages we’ve had”, “what a great experience” , “the office was just buzzing with energy”, and the classic, “we should have come to you in the first place!”

You will find that when you deal with our team at Massage2Motivate we are responsive, friendly and we are passionate about providing exceptional service. Our therapists are enthusiastic, well qualified and I promise you your staff will love the experience!

We might not be the cheapest provider but you will really notice the difference when you deal with Massage2Motivate.  In fact, you will want to tell your friends as so many others do!

Give us a call; we’d love to hear from you
