A counterbalance to stress in the workplace
Many companies and individuals are now aware of the cost that negative stress can have on their company and their staff.
Frequent complaints of work-related stress include the following:
“My neck and shoulders constantly ache from using the telephone all day in the office”
“I often feel under pressure to meet deadlines, this creates headaches”
“I never have time for a proper lunch break, there is always too much to do in too little time”
“I feel I need a decent break, I've been sat at my desk most of the day”
Comments like those sound too familiar to those suffering from the negative effects of stress at work. It’s vital that staff maintain a healthy ‘work/life’ balance.
We can arrange Indian Head Massage treatments with companies and organisations to help look after the welfare of their staff and employees and manage stress levels effectively and with employers who wish to offer extra benefits to their staff or executives.
Benefits of corporate massage to the recipients are manifold: rejuvenation of tired muscles, stress relief and relief of headaches and back pain. From the employer’s point of view, employees often require less sick or stress leave and are appreciative of the care given to their health needs, thus improving company morale. It’s also a fantastic way of thanking your staff.
How does Corporate Indian Head Massage work?
An area of the workplace (preferably private) can be assigned for the treatment. Our qualified therapist provide a seated chair massage which will last approximately 20 minutes, a short enough duration to be slotted into a break or lunch hour, with the practitioner concentrating on the back, neck, shoulders and head, the areas that suffer most stress from extended seating periods. Our therapist will be there over a 2-5 hour period. This can be done on a weekly, monthly or occasional visits.
Although the techniques are applied to the upper parts of the body only (shoulders, upper arms, neck and head), collectively they represent a de-stressing programme for the whole body. Indian head massage has therefore become a primary form of stress management treatment in the western world.
Clients seeking relief from stress and tension often find Indian head massage a convenient form of treatment to receive in that:
- There is no need to undress
- It is quick and effective in terms of results
- It can be performed anywhere, due to its portable nature, and is performed sitting up
Benefits of Indian Head Massage:
Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.

It is vital that staff maintain a healthy ‘work/life’ balance.
