The Benefits of Chair Massage at Events or the Office
Employees Need Nurturing
Companies should give employees the opportunity to relax and feel at ease within the office environment. Massages at the office will not only help their physical and mental wellbeing but a therapy massage is proven to enhance productivity at work.
When working long hours at the office the muscles can get tense and over time different pains and ills can show up. It is important that companies nurture members of staff by tackling head-on employee absenteeism due to stress related illnesses. When members of staff and employees are happy they are less likely to suffer from stress related disorders.
The Importance of Company Culture
Nowadays companies and organisations are adopting what is known as 'company culture' - which is the way in which the company 'personality' is somehow enhanced throughout the workplace. This is catching on with many companies in the UK, and we will see how many more new and older companies start re-defining their workplace enviromment as well as the company values, goals, ethics and mission.
We've seen in the past how mission and values have had a prominent 'space' within the company's overall vision, but there's no doubt that due to the massive growth in social media (channels as well as general accessibility) everyone can nowadays demand transparency. What takes place behind companies doors? The fact that social media enables personal opinion and views when it comes to products and services has resulted in companies having to look twice at their values.
More and more companies are re-evaluating how they operate to make sure their customers embrace not only their services and products but also their values and ethics.
A New Focus on Wellbeing
It is great to see so many organisations as well as companies take the initiative to help members of staff and employees when it comes to their wellbeing, by, for example, managing their stress levels or making the office environment a space where they can also relax and take enjoyable breaks.
Whether big or small, many companies are shifting to invest in the company culture helping employees by giving them opportunities like assisting a chair massage paid by the company at particular events. Encouraging wellbeing is important and many companies seem to really get the message.
Massage Can Improve Serotonine
Boosting serotonin levels is important for nurturing a sense of happiness and wellbeing. Sunlight, exercises and good memories help boost serotonin levels.
But what exactly is serotonin? According to Medical News Today, "serotonin is a chemical that has a wide variety of functions in the human body. It is sometimes called the happy chemical, because it contributes to wellbeing and happiness."
Serotonin is well known for contributing to individuals' wellbeing as well as happiness. Massages can boost your serotonin levels and that's why massages at the workplace and company events can be a key factor.
Human contact might also influence the boost in serotonin levels. Here's an interesting fact:
One study on massage was carried out on depressed pregnant women. Depression in mothers is particularly concerning, because their depression can affect the baby’s activity of various neurotransmitters, including serotonin. The women received massages twice a week from their partners for four months, and their serotonin levels increased by 30%. Source.
Massage at events as well as the workplace have a large number of benefits. Back pain is one of the most common causes of employees in terms of being absent from work - when members of staff don't really know how to sit in front of their computers this can simply get worse over time.
If you find that this is having an effect on your company maybe you should consider opening to the idea of massage therapy as part of a company event or at the workplace. With many years experience at VMassage we can most certainly help boost morale at the office.
