Many of us work full time on top of a laundry list of other things. According to a study by Everest College, 83% of American workers have admitted to being chronically stressed out at work. Many workplaces deal with employees who are burnt out, anxious, and irritable causing an increase in stress and a decrease in productivity. This chronic stress can actually lead to many serious health issues down the road. I believe that in our fast-paced world it is important to take time to de-stress. A great way to bring massage into the office is with corporate chair massage.
The Effects of Stress in the Workplace

- Lack of focus
How Chair Massages Can Benefit Your Workplace
You and your employees lead busy lives, and you may not have time to make that regularly scheduled massage appointment. Bringing chair massage into the office is a great way to combat the negative effects of stress and improve overall health. It is actually a great way to increase productivity and improve company morale.
After only a few minutes of massage, people begin to feel positive effects because there is a release of serotonin and dopamine that counteract the cortisol stress hormone. The result is happier, focused, and more relaxed employees.
Corporate Chair Massage Events
The best way to bring massage into your business is by hosting a chair massage event. The massages are only about 15 minutes and can be done during lunch breaks so that they do not interrupt the work day in any way. I am now booking corporate chair massage events for the months of June, July, and August in the Kansas City Metro Area. 5% of event proceeds will be donated to Rapha House, a non-profit organization that rescues children from human trafficking in the Kansas City Metro Area so you can give to your employees and to charity at the same time!
