The Benefits of Massage as a Workplace Wellness Program
Let’s face it, when the weather is nice workdays just feel longer. Employee’s heads (and I’m sure your own) are drifting off to other activities that they’d prefer to be doing in the sunshine.
Getting work done and being productive requires more mental energy, and the workload certainly hasn’t slowed down just because it’s summer. Now is a great time to check in on the wellness of your employees or offer some rewards based off of their accomplishments.
We happen to know a solution that checks off both these things; on-site acupressure chair massages.
Offering specialized massage therapy at your work location for the purpose of alleviating workplace stress is exactly what Katoka Massage Therapy was founded on.
We hold close to our heart the healing principals (mind, body, and soul) that Shiatsu based acupressure brings to our clients and we aim to increase the well-being of workers across London.

Wellness in the Workplace
The physical benefits of massage are nothing new, and most likely have been explored already by yourself or your employees. However, a key component of massage that is not to be overlooked is what it does for the mind.
To put it simply, the art of massage induces a state of relaxation on the body, thus creating a sense of well-being. When a person not only feels good physically, but mentally as well, they are ready to conquer!
The body and mind are at peak productivity and health. This is the best time to perform and create quality work. It goes without saying that a person in this state is the person most in-demand at work.
Of course you want your workers to perform well on the job. Their happiness and health is directly tied to this, and should be a genuine concern to their employer. Creating a workplace that is healthy and focuses on employee well-being is a must these days.
A workday of 9-5 is hard to come by now. We are so tied to digital connections it’s hard to get out of the office, even if we’re technically on ‘off’ hours or at home. Remember to consider your well-being as an employer too!
4 Great Ways to Incorporate Chair Massage into your Workplace
1. Reward or Recognition Program:
Has an employee reached 5 years at the company or about to retire? Did someone in sales exceed the target goal? These are just a few examples of perfect ways you can reward excellent performance with the gift of massage.
The on-site massage not only rewards your employee, but also helps settle their mind and body after working so hard. It is also a great incentive for your team to have something to strive for!
2. As a Thank You after a big project:
If your team recently finished up a big group task, this is a great way to show your appreciation and that you care about their well-being. Employees who feel appreciated by upper management are more likely to stick around and perform better.
3. Special Events:
Planning a special day for employee recognition? Looking to bring attention to your booth at a trade event? Offering chair massages when and where you need them!
3. On-going well-being at work:
If you’re looking to bring in an on-going wellness plan to your work environment we would love to help you forge the way. You can set up weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc bookings for you and your employees to enjoy.
With a set schedule to look forward to, your employees can receive the benefits of acupressure massage within the work week.
