The Real Health Benefits of a Workplace Massage!

| Alison Roberts

If you are looking for proof that a massage will improve your health, you’ll have no trouble finding research to back this up. We’ve got lots from our 17 years experience of delivering workplace massage, plus it is our most popular session, always oversubscribed – that says it all to me! In addition of course there are dozens of independent studies – some stretching back several decades that have linked massage with real physical and psychological benefits!

Key findings include…. levels of the stress hormone cortisol dropped 31% following a massage, while levels of feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin increased roughly 30%.

Massage therapy has been shown to reduce anxiety and is very effective in the treatment of depression, stress, feelings of isolation, and even anger that’s before we start talking about posture and repetitive strain, and creativity. Workplace massage carried out by highly skilled therapists who care and can target their treatments makes employees happier, and happier employees make for better workplaces!

So how does it work?

In short, workplace massage stretches and relaxes muscles, increasing the flow of blood and lymph to the brain and other organs releasing energy endorphins around the body. This is vital when we are sat for hours on end, or in one position for extended periods of time, especially if workstations are not ergonomically designed. The result is decreased energy and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome. Workplace massage can help to overcome these stresses and strains.

We are often asked, is having a massage in the middle of the working day beneficial?

The answer is YES, 100%. Here are our top eight reasons why? All of these have been quoted by clients, employees, and individuals just like you, after a Tonic Reward Day, bearing in mind I have been working with Becca and the Tonic team for some ten years plus now.

Top reasons why workplace massage is so beneficial:

  1. Releases the ‘happy hormone’ so you feel more positive
  2. Alleviates any aches & pains
  3. Reduces stress
  4. Relieves anxiety
  5. Improves mental wellbeing
  6. Restores energy levels
  7. Helps sleeping disorders
