Coming from the fast paced lifestyle of Toronto Ontario I realize how busy people’s lives are with career, family and social life. Many professional people dealing with pain, injuries, postural changes and general stress and anxiety are unable to find the time to go to clinics for treatment. This is becoming the norm in Vancouver as well, where many professionals work long strenuous hours without having the time to take care of their bodies and minds.
I have had the opportunity to work around this problem by offering Corporate Massage Therapy session within the office environment. Most recently I have been offering this service at Schneider Electric in Burnaby, B.C. Employees are able to sign up in advance for 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions and receive assessment, hands on treatment and self-care exercises during a 9-5 workday without having to leave their office building. By decreasing pain, stress and imbalances and by improving function employees are able to work more efficiently and effectively, which will improve performance. Corporate treatments will also improve job satisfaction and decrease the numbers of day’s employees take off work due to pain or injury. They will also have a convenient way to utilize their Massage Therapy coverage.
By bringing in a Massage Therapist, Schneider Electric has demonstrated that they care about the health and well being of their staff. They also offer weekly yoga classes, boot camp classes and have an in house gym for employee use. These initiatives significantly assist in maintaining employee health and should be a model for all companies with many employees.
