MASSAGE IN THE WORKPLACE
Can you answer yes to at least one of these questions?
Is your business environment competitive, intense, pressured or demanding?
Do you or your employees work long hours and suffer aching muscles, stress and work fatigue?
Do you want to get the most out of your work, or staff, and be rewarded or reward them for their hard work?
Are you an employer or an employee?
Massage in the workplace, I come to you.
I am dedicated and passionate about providing high quality, professional massage to both corporate and private clients. Working with many clients from an office-based background and having some experience; I know how stressful the workplace environment can be. I believe a relaxed employee is a more productive, constructive and happy employee.
Stress costs the business industry millions of pounds a year in absenteeism, let alone extended periods of sick time being used because of work-related stress and anxiety, and illnesses such as musculoskeletal disorders.
Pampering Palms offers a flexible service to help your company decrease aches, pains and tension, increase productivity and decrease the absenteeism rates in your company.
Workplace Stretching Programme
I also offer workplace stretching programmes. Just as you benefit from stretching and warm-up exercises in your day-to-day life, companies and their team members both benefit from a work readiness programme consisting of stretching and warming up exercises to ensure employees are physically ready for work, to reduce injury, promote health, and reduce muscular discomfort. Research shows that repetitive motion, poor posture, and staying in the same position can cause or worsen muscle condition.
There are two ways a stretching programme can be offered.
Regular lunchtime sessions (weekly, monthly, bi-monthly) where employees sign up and pay £6 per session. There needs to be a minimum of 5 people and a maximum of 20 people. These sessions will last for 45 minutes and include the demonstration of a variety of stretches.
One-off sessions lasting for 45 minutes. Minimum of 10 employees and a maximum of 20 employees (if you have a lot of employees in your workplace, these sessions can take place over a variety of sessions) at a cost of £30.00 per session.
These sessions include instructional material for employees to keep so they can refer to and keep doing themselves throughout the day if
and when needed.

Benefits to employees;
Benefits to the working environment:
How long does it take?
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes. This is only a little bit longer than a coffee break, but the effects are far more beneficial than a cuppa. These 20 minutes can be incorporated into anybody’s day regardless of how busy they are.
However, sometimes it is not practical to give staff 20 minutes each. If you have a large number of staff and or a limited budget or time frame then a shorter duration may suit. Pampering Palms also offers Massage at your desk days. This is a popular workstation workout, which includes a 10 minute upper back, shoulder and neck massage, which helps reverse the effects of being sat at a desk or computer all day. As it is carried out at the desk it does not interfere with the working day.
When you contact me to make a booking I will design a massage programme or session to suit your needs
How convenient is it for you and your staff?
All treatments offered are well suited to the corporate environment because they are flexible and the recipient does not need to undress. They are performed in the office with only a small space needed to perform treatments, no equipment needs to be provided and no messy oils are used, and afterwards, the employee is relaxed, alert and ready to get back to work.
Seated Meridian Acupressure Massage
Seated Meridian Acupressure massage is performed on an ergonomically designed chair to give you the maximum comfort and support. The treatment focuses on the back, shoulders, neck, head, arms and hands.
It is not just a massage, it incorporates Indian Head Massage, Yoga, Acupressure, work on the meridians in the body, stretching and working on marma points.
Opens up the back muscles, relieves strain on the neck and provides a gentle respite for eyes glued to a computer all day.
Most office-related physical symptoms can be attributed to the loss of circulation. Tight muscles caused by stress and sitting behind a desk all day. The result is mental fogginess, decreased energy and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome. Massage to the neck, back, arms and hands can increase circulation, return energy levels and helping keep the body injury-free.
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage involves massaging the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face using a variety of massage movements to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint mobility. This massage promotes blood flow to the head area thus nourishing the area with oxygen. This, in turn, assists with increased mental focus, allowing employees to feel more alert. It can also assist with the alleviation of tension headaches, eyestrain and lethargy.
Remedial massage uses deep tissue massage techniques to release muscular tension or pain whether sports-related, stress-related or simply down to bad posture.
Remedial Massage uses deep tissue massage techniques to treat and prevent musculoskeletal problems whilst promoting physical and mental wellbeing.
Some massage techniques are used to stretch muscle tissue and release tension from joints to keep the body flexible. Others are used to stimulate the circulation, remove waste products and speed up the healing process.
