Stress in today’s workplace costs you money. That cost is realized in reduced productivity, increased absenteeism and employee turnover to the tune of $200 billion a year. The effects of stress are cumulative and affect your bottom line. U Knead Massage offers a solution: on site chair massage at work.

Chair Massage Helps:

Relieve Stress –
We all know the down side of stress shown by frequent sick days and low productivity. Massage has proved to lower blood pressure and increase circulation and it releases endorphins, the feel good hormones. Your staff will be happy.

Improve Employee Morale –
Employees receiving a 15 minute massage paid for by you will only feel appreciated and you’ll get their loyalty in return. If you have your doubts visit our “Raving Fans” page.

Increase Productivity –
University of Miami School of Medicine’s Touch Research Institute studied job stress and mental functioning (Health, Oct. 1995, Katherine Griffin). One group was given 20 minute seated massages twice a week; the control group was instructed to do isometric exercises for relaxation. The massage group showed less anxiety and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. “What’s more, the massaged group, despite being physically relaxed, was more alert after the massage than before. Those who got massages were able to do math problems in half the time and with half as many errors as the control group.”

Improve Creative Thinking and Relieves Fatigue –
It’s better than a cup of coffee!

Lower Absenteeism –
By lowering stress, massage helps eliminate absenteeism, making your team more competitive. Employees look forward to their weekly massage some say they may have called in sick due to heavy workloads but instead show up on “Massage Fridays”. “It helps me perform better.” Says one employee at Regent Entertainment.

What some of our clients have said: 

“This massage counteracts the effects of sitting in my chair at my computer all day. I was not even aware of my tense areas like the base of my neck. This gives me some body awareness.”

“I feel more like a human, less like a machine. Can you spare 15 minutes to feel fabulous?”

“Before the massage, I was feeling tense and buckled up. Afterwards, I felt really loose and stretched out. I don’t see this service as a disturbance in my work load but enough of a disturbance to feel better! I would love to have this once a week, if possible and highly recommend it!”
