On-Site Chair Massage In The Workplace

Reducing Stress With On-site Chair Massage

Massage therapy can boost morale, increase productivity and even help with attraction and retention. Studies by the Touch Research Institute in Florida show that the benefits of chair massage have quick results. Immediately after massage sessions, the subjects experienced a change in brain waves in the direction of heightened alertness and better performance on math problems (completed in less time with fewer errors).  At the end of the five-week study period, subjects reported reduced job stress and elevated moods. This was in addition to the usual benefits of massage: relief of muscular tension, revitalized energy, and a stronger immune system.  The study’s findings are significant in that the International Labor Organization stated in its 1993 World Labor Report that job stress costs the U.S. economy $200 billion annually through diminished productivity, compensation claims, absenteeism, health insurance, and direct medical expenses.
