How Does Corporate Massage Work? Part III

Once we’ve organised your special day, here’s what you can expect. Your friendly, qualified and insured massage therapist will arrive punctually to the office ready to treat your staff as per your requirements. If equipment is brought along, it will be promptly set up in a quiet place along with aromatherapy and music, where each staff member can then take their turn engaging in a session of blissful relaxation. For a “roaming” desk massage, the therapist will approach each staff individually and ask them if they would like a massage before proceeding.

Corporate massage is so easy and convenient to set up for your company. It doesn’t matter if you have never organised a corporate massage session before or have no idea of what you’re after. Feel free to call us or drop a line on our website enquiry form! We’d love to have a chat to discuss some options for you and assist in improving staff health & wellbeing.

How Does Corporate Massage Work? Part II

Following from our previous post on the styles of corporate massage, today we’ll introduce the types of corporate massage sessions that your company can look into.

Corporate massage is all about offering comfort, convenience and choice to you. You can choose to offer a quick 5 or 10 minute neck and shoulder rub for staff at their workstations. If time permits, you can also consider longer massage options up to 30 minutes to transport your staff to a relaxing, tranquil place, so they can be really refreshed and energised.

Corporate massage is great as a one-off reward or an inclusion in a corporate event. Your staff can also reap longer-term benefits with regular massage sessions, whether they are weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly. With regular corporate massage, you will notice an improvement in staff morale and general wellbeing. Staff will be excited to be at the office and rewarded for their hard work!

How Does Corporate Massage Work? Part I

Corporate massage at the workplace is a fantastic way to motivate and reinvigorate staff. Occasionally, we get asked about how this wonderful health initiative works, so in the next few posts, we’ll take the opportunity to explain the nitty-gritty of the corporate massage options you can offer to your company.

1) Corporate Seated Massage
With this type of massage, we have the massage therapist bring in a professional portable massage chair into a quiet space in your office where they can work their magic for your staff.

2) Corporate Desk Massage
For some offices, having the massage therapist “roaming” from desk to desk may be more suitable for busy companies where staff don’t have much opportunity to leave their workstations.

3) Corporate Table Massage
If your company is keen on truly treating and rewarding staff, a longer table massage could be ideal. This can take place with or without oils in a separate room, where the therapist can assist with alleviating all the aches and pains from a heavy work day!

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.

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!

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

Is every Company that provides Corporate Massage Services in the Workplace the Same?

Have you ever called a company only for the telephone to ring and ring …….or for the call to be transferred to an answer phone?…. or worse the automated attendant,

“… Press 1 for Sales Press 2 for accounts…..3….4….5….Press 15 to speak to someone etc…”

I don’t know about you but what ever happened to making a call and speaking to a human being?

It’s easy for businesses to lose focus on Customer Service and just focus on cost cutting to increase their profit margin!

If a company chooses recorded messages instead of answering your call, then what other areas are they trying to skimp on?

Do these people really want to understand their clients’ needs, to then meet them?  Perhaps not.

I think it’s extremely important that when you call a company you speak to someone straightaway. I feel it’s critical that an organisation is responsive to their prospective clients;

No one wants to wait days before seeing information; before receiving the details required allowing you to make a decision to go ahead.

So what about massage in the workplace is there a difference between one company and the next?

I think it comes down to a number of important points. Firstly is attention to detail, secondly is treating every client as unique and thirdly is having a 100% money back guarantee that you stand behind because you are confident of your superior service.

If you have never experienced massage in the workplace before or you haven’t experienced the Massage2Motivate difference then perhaps it’s worth giving us a call; it will be an experience to remember!

Most importantly, Have Fun!
