People love massage and there are many reasons why. Most people agree that massage simply feels good, and that it is an effective self-care tool for treating common issues such as back pain, which can come from sitting at a desk long hours.
The health benefits of massage are not limited to just alleviating the physical discomforts a person might have. There are many mental and emotional benefits to receiving a massage. Massage reduces stress and anxiety that come from work and everyday life, and therefore promotes relaxation, focus, and better sleep. Providing a stress relieving activity in your workplace helps employees be their best selves.
The Significance of Workplace Appreciation
Researchers at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study on the correlation between gratitude and work engagement: Researchers randomly divided university fundraisers into two groups.
One group made phone calls to solicit alumni donations in the same way they always had. The second group—assigned to work on a different day—received a pep talk from the director of annual giving, who told the fund-raisers she was grateful for their efforts. During the following week, the university employees who heard her message of gratitude made 50% more fundraising calls than those who did not.”

We always hear how it’s better to show instead of tell, and this is true for gratitude too. Why not show your employees your gratitude for their hard work, in a way that boosts not only performance and engagement, but also the employee’s well-being and health?
There is a trending popularity in better work-life balance, especially amongst Millennials who were born between 1977-1997. Millennials make up a large portion of today’s workforce, and they seek a company culture that promotes work-life balance. A Future Workplace survey found that 91% of Millennials expect to stay at a job for less than three years.
As a company that puts time and resources into training and development for an employee, consider how combining the benefits of gratitude with the benefits of massage can provide a sound return on your investment. Job growth is at an all time high in cities all across the US, and unemployment rates are at an all time low. It is crucial to your business to give the best employees reasons to stay. A token of appreciation like chair massage can be part of your employee retention strategy.
