On-site massage is an effective way of offering the benefits of massage in the workplace and other public areas. It can help to relieve stress and muscle tension and to renew energy levels in a short (10 to 30 minutes) session. The client remains fully clothed and no oils are used. It is an extremely popular therapy as it can be carried out in almost any setting from offices to the gym or even outdoors, at all types of events. Virtually no preparation time and little space is required making it simple and cost effective.
Many employers have been convinced of the benefits of massage as a part of their stress management. Employers and employees see the benefits from promoting health in the workplace as it reduces sickness absences, improve productivity and help creating a safer working environment.
On-site massage has the same beneficial effects as other massage:
* Increases the blood and lymph circulation which strengthens the immune system
* Relieves muscle soreness and tension
* Helps alleviate stress
* Improves flexibility and increases range of movement, reducing risk of injury
* Reduces migraine headaches
* Relaxes and invigorates stimulating creative thinking and clarity
Most people hold tension in their neck and shoulders and massaging these areas can greatly assist with pain and aches associated with stress. It can include arm and hand massage – particularly if the client’s job leaves him prone to Repetitive Strain Injuries. The aim is to re-balance, refill and de-stress. The massage involves acupressure points and work on the meridians and it can help to re-balance the body and unblock areas of stagnant energy.
