Workplace wellness programs usually include healthy living choices like regular exercise, a balanced diet, and recreational activities. They keep the body in a state able to work and keep the mind stable, but the human body does not only require moments of activity but also inactivity. Rest and relaxation from everything, a moment just to drift through time for a few minutes, is necessary for employees to stay motivated to do their jobs – to prevent overheating. However, just “not doing anything” is not enough. The human body needs “service maintenance” as much as a new car does to sustain its high performance. A workplace wellness program that does this for people is massage therapy.
The body can only absorb so much damage and it can break down without proper stress management. Muscles can get as tight as deadlines if you don’t let them loose for a while. Even then, there are knots that sleep can’t pull out. Getting a full body massage, though, is enough to re-tune an employee’s settings and make him feel like a new man. The benefits of massage therapy include:
- A feeling of refreshment
- A more positive attitude
- New-found energy to work
- Overall, decrease in stress in the mind and body
It can be argued that massage therapy isn’t completely necessary, but the benefits speak for themselves. Many employees, pummeled with work, would love a little massage therapy and its effects on their working attitude can be seen immediately; being pampered once in a while is never a bad thing. With this workplace wellness program, you can rejuvenate stress-ridden employees and raise their performance levels.
