WORKPLACE WELL BEING
A successful and high functioning workplace is one where the employees and teams are calm and relaxed. There are always stresses in any work environment but a well cared for employee will deal with these obstacles calmly and efficiently, rather than emotionally. And will be able to compart mentalise sections of their life and truly focus at work once their mindfulness journey has begun.
This is where workplace well being comes in. Well being, mindfulness and wellness all fall under the same category. They are the realisation of our true potential to live a healthier, happier and more successful existence.
By definition, Wellness - [noun] is the state of being healthy and the result of personal initiative, seeking a more optimal, holistic and balanced state of health.
There are many ways to become more mindful and take better care of one self and those around them.
Seated acupressure chair massage, or on site massage, is a rejuvenating treatment that’s ideal for the workplace, those with only a little while to pamper themselves, those who find lying down uncomfortable or those who would prefer a seated massage. Using a specially designed chair, our massage therapists use a combination of massage and acupressure techniques on the back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands and scalp. The massage can be fully clothed so disruption to the work day is minimal, it is 30 minutes of pure relaxation time without any fuss, leaving the receiver refreshed and revitalised.
Optional wax based seated massage available – the receiver need only remove their top to reveal their back, this option is more comparable to a Swedish massage and is just as therapeutic and effective.
Our professional mobile massage therapists are specialists in seated massage and bring everything they need to provide your massage treatments. The massages can take place in any room with no other people in, preferably not too chilly though!
Same day results that last for weeks.
Mindfulness is the practice of paying more attention to the present moment. It’s understood that by observing your own thoughts, feelings and physical sensations, you can improve your mental wellbeing.
According to the Mind and Body Medical Institute at Harvard University, mindfulness enhances the qualities companies need most from their workforce:
increased brain-wave activity
positive results in executive performance
employee retention and bottom-line results
Guided Meditation – one off sessions or regular courses for groups where individuals can practice mindfulness meditation techniques to bring about positive change. During the session, you’ll be guided through techniques and practices that leave you calmer, with a greater sense of clarity. Sessions are generally between 15 & 60 minutes long and can be done at any time of the day. The longer the session the more impactful.
For this a quiet room with space to lay out yoga mats is needed. All equipment provided including soothing music and lavender eye bags. This truly is a relaxing break from the world outside. You are then guided through meditation and will emerge a calmer you.
Hand and Foot Massage
Hand massages and foot massages are wonderfully relaxing and a great choice of massage when convenience is key. They are quick and easy to implement, perfect if the receiver does not wish to disturb their hair and make up or has a very busy day and can only spare 10-15 minutes of time for themselves.
With a foot massage the receiver can even eat lunch at the same time if their schedule is jam packed. But this small amount of time dedicated to them self could gain them energy, motivate and rejuvenate them for the rest of their busy day.
Indian Head Massage
This type of mobile massage has been ideally adapted for the office as it’s done over the clothes and without oils. All that’s needed is a regular office chair (a cushion is provided to support the lumbar spine) making this a popular and convenient choice of treatment. Indian head massage at work is ideal as either a quick 10 minute pick-me-up or a longer, more relaxing massage. Very low fuss form of massage, women may wish to comb their hair after ward.
