Why You Should Consider Massage in Your Workplace
“We need to keep focused. Having a massage is the logical solution.”
- Chris Marlow, Senior Gameplay Engineer at Microsoft Studios.
Everyone knows that daily work can take its toll, so how do we stay relaxed and productive?
Corporate massage is an increasingly popular wellbeing initiative acting to improve the wellbeing of employees and employers in the workplace.
Scientific research backs up its myriad of benefits, and so do our client testimonials. These will be explained below.
“30.7 million working days [are] lost due to work-related ill health.”
As you may be aware, the financial and social implications of this absence are seen by many in management positions.
It is clear that we need to take care of the health of our employees when they are at work, and corporate massage is a proven method to do this.
The benefits of a 10 or 15 minute chair massage, designed for the workplace, are undeniable.
Four key benefits of workplace massage:
1. Dramatic stress reduction in clients, seen by ourselves and many studies.
2. Reduced musculoskeletal disorders, one of the main causes of workplace absence.
3. Studies have shown that massage reduces sickness levels, hence reducing absenteeism.
4. As shown by our client testimonials, regular massage helps to re-focus and refresh staff, which in turn increases productivity and company output.
But you don’t have to take our word for it...
The Corporate Massage Company have been regularly visiting Microsoft Studios to give 15 minute massages through clothing with no use of oils. One manager stated,
“When you’re working as hard as we are and you’re doing so many hours in front of a computer and the call comes out that massages are available, the whole team just rush to try and sign up for it.”
He also mentions that massage is just what the team members need to “get them through hard times, relax, and set them up ready for the next week”.
Similarly, Lizzy Jones, Development Executive at AXA Healthcare Insurance, featured in our video, commented on the importance of massage in the workplace “not only from a personal perspective, but also from a management point of view”.
She described it as:
“...pivotal for maintaining wellbeing in the workplace... extremely beneficial not only for the employee, but also for the employer.”

How does massage work?
Our massages are based on Japanese Shiatsu and adopt acupressure techniques (see below) to help relieve tension and stress in the body and mind.
Massages are quick, through the clothes, require no oils and leave staff feeling refreshed, invigorated and ready to tackle the rest of the day.
