I have developed a series of Thai Massage, Thai Foot Massage and Seated Massage treatments that are ideal for your
workplace, product launch or any other promotional events. These services can also be expanded with the use of
other, well qualified and experienced, therapists allowing all workplace or event sizes to be accommodated locally
or further afield.
Some comments from recent work place massages are:
"I thought the session added a huge lift to my week. It helped me truly relax and switch off and then re-focus.
'Switching off' in the week is becoming increasingly difficult. In the world of 24/7 global working I find that
I'm increasingly 'switched on' all week, with emails coming through during the night and early morning/late
night calls all leading to different deadlines in different time-zones. Once you've switched off, that next
day it's much easier to re-group and focus on the most important things to the company, rather than the noisiest!" - R S
"I have had headaches on a daily basis for most of this year, as a secondary issue resulting from chronic
shoulder pain that I have had since last November that I am on prescription pain-killers for. I hold my arm in
a position to reduce the pain in my shoulder that results in a headache, but since my massage I have had 9 non
headache free days, which is the longest headache free period this year! It has also helped the mobility in my
arm too". - J H
On-site massages are becoming more popular within companies as employers are realising the benefits of these
services and that they are actually a sound business investment. Some interesting facts are shown below:
- High levels of absence
- The last Health & Safety Executive report found that 23.4 million working days were lost due to work related
ill health. Over 80% of these were attributable to musculoskeletal disorders and stress.
- CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) 2011 Absence Management Survey found that nearly 4 in 10
employers reported an increase in stress-related absence.
- High cost of absence to businesses
- CIPD state absence equates to a loss of £600 per member of staff each year in the public sector and £680
per staff member in the private sector.
- High cost of low productivity
- Presenteeism is a term used to refer to employees operating with a low level of productivity, due to ill
health, stress, low morale or lack of engagement. CIPD found data to suggest that presenteeism is costing
companies 2 to 7 times more than absenteeism.
- Return on investment in employee wellbeing
- A number of studies from reputable companies, such as PWC (Pricewaterhouse Coopers) are showing that money
invested in wellbeing yields a return for business?s bottom line. Varying studies estimate that for every
pound invested in employee wellness initiatives, there is a return of between £2.3 to £10.1.
- M&S introduced a physical therapy service for employees with musculoskeletal problems, and found a return of £34
for every £1 invested, in only 6 months.
- Evidence from the Sunday Times' 'Best Companies to work for in the UK'
- 34 shows that companies who have higher levels of staff engagement (looking at parameters such as employee
well-being) have 13% lower staff turnover, less than half the sickness absence of the UK average, and on
the stock market they have consistently out-performed the FTSE 100.
