Never had a massage? You’re missing out…

Okay, so you’ve never had a massage. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s just… you’re missing out. A lot.

For the ‘converted’, it’s hard for us to imagine life without ever having a massage. So, let’s discuss the best addiction possible with a few questions…

What are the benefits of massage?

Providing both short-term and long-term effects, a massage is ideal for getting your body in shape again.

  • Reduces muscular tension and pain, improving mobility.
  • Great for aiding recovery on swollen muscles.
  • Improves circulation and releases endorphins.
  • Improving lymphatic drainage (which carries toxins away from the tissues).

How is your team’s mental health?

1 in 4 adults in the UK suffer from a mental health problem.

Let us rephrase this: approximately 25% of your workforce may be suffering from mental health issues – depression, anxiety, fatigue, stress-induced burnouts.

Though businesses are shaking off the recession, the effects are still there. Teams have been downsized. Working hours have been on the decline. And yet, businesses still require the same – if not more – output from their employees.

It’s no surprise that 41% of employees feel under ‘excessive pressure’ at least once a week. In fact, 13% said they felt under excessive pressure every working day. The UK is the second highest in Europe to feel this way (source:  CIPD study, April 2014).

So what can you do?
