CHAIR MASSAGE

 

About the massage session: The recipient is seated (fully clothed) in a forward leaning, state-of-the-art massage chair. In this position, all of the muscle groups needed to support the body throughout the day are able to temporarily relax while receiving the massage treatment. The areas of the body that are most likely to suffer the effects of workplace stress are given expert attention, including the neck, head, shoulders, back, lower back, arms, wrists and hands. Each massage is about twenty-five minutes long, although this can vary depending on logistics and schedules. The massage session directly addresses the effects of extended computer and telephone use, repetitive motion, poor posture and work demands all of which can put a tremendous amount of strain and fatigue on both body and mind. At the end of the session, the massage recipient typically experiences a feeling of rejuvenation, recharging, freedom of movement and a general sense of improved well-being. In addition to these immediate benefits, the long-term effects of repetitive and cumulative strain and fatigue can be significantly diminished.

In addition to these immediate benefits, the long-term effects of repetitive and cumulative strain and fatigue can be significantly diminished.

Re-educating both body and mind: Recipients are given a general overview of how posture and alignment in the workplace can be modified to reduce the harmful effects of bad habits. General questions about the physical anatomy and structural relationship of muscles, bones, nerves, circulation etc. are answered, leaving the client with a better understanding of how stress affects the body and mind. Appropriate educational handouts can be provided, such as postural tips and simple stretches that can be used to reduce the build up of stress effects. Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of these sessions though, is the mental/emotional effect. Recipients are left with a profound feeling of improved wellness and comfort immediately creating a new lens through which they experience their day. Feeling good physically becomes the foundation for being in top form mentally. Upon returning to the work routine after a short stress-break massage session, recipients report a marked increase in patience and compassion with situations, co-workers, customers, and even with themselves. This contributes to an upward spiral of cooperation and positive-oriented thinking, behavior and ways of relating, instead of the potential downward spiral of tension, stress and fatigue.
