LOOK AFTER YOUR EMPLOYEES AND THEY WILL LOOK AFTER YOUR BUSINESS
The most valuable assets to any business are the people. Investing in your employees is important especially when recruiting costs can be a hugely expensive exercise. Once you have that fabulous team, you want to hold on to them. After all, you have employed them for their skills and abilities to complete tasks quickly and to a high standard, maintaining the success of your company. Investing in wellness at work activities ensures less stress for your employees with more productivity, plus less time off work with stress-related illnesses.
It makes sense, therefore, to invest in these people and whilst this might include such things as training etc. there are times when investing in people’s well-being is just as important too – and corporate massage could be one of those investments.
It is a very real issue for both the employee and the employer. On one hand, you recognise someone as being stressed, but an employer can either choose to ignore it, or meet it head on.
Prevention as we know, is better than cure.

Initial Consultation Form
Did you know that as many as 23% of workers in the UK suffer from fatigue with one in four suffering from work-related stress? It is reported that 70% of all sick leave within the UK is attributed to stress. This is estimated to cost UK businesses between £3.7-£7 billion per year. In addition, the second most common cause for absenteeism are skeletal and muscular problems – together they add up to a further 12.3 million working days lost annually.
On-site massage has been clinically proven to reduce stress along with reducing staff absences and just 15 minutes of massage can:
- Improve performance, productivity and mental alertness
- Reduce back, head, neck and shoulder pain
- Help improve musculoskeletal structure and function
- Increases blood and lymph flow along with circulation, releasing muscular tension
- Reduces eye strain
- Reduce mental fogginess and decreased energy
- Help to reduce repetitive injuries i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome and keep the body injury free
- Reduce sickness absence and staff turnover
- Give the recipient an all-round feeling of emotional health and balance
- Improve your corporate reputation and office morale.
More and more companies throughout the UK are offering work-based massage therapies and they have discovered the benefits of wellness in the workplace. Whether fully funded, part-funded or not funded at all, massage is proven as a way to attract and keep employees. After all, you are looking after them and showing you care by allowing them to have just 15 minutes of massage time a week/fortnightly or monthly in addition to their usual breaks. It is a benefit that doesn’t cost a lot of money but gains good will from employees.

About the treatment
The massage therapy is performed with employees fully clothed and without oils, sitting on a massage chair - this also relaxes the legs as the weight of the body is being held securely by the chair. This seated treatment is limited to the neck shoulders, upper back, lower back and arms with techniques used for the general purpose of relaxation along with tapotement, effleurage, petrissage, passive stretching and joint mobilisation. If required, the massage can take place at their desk but will be more beneficial and relaxing if a small office space/meeting room can be used.
Massage can also take place on a massage couch with the client removing certain parts of clothing so a specific blend of oils can be used for the back, neck, shoulders, back of legs, front of legs, feet, arms/hands, face/head. This is especially beneficial for those who have muscular knots and tension. Complete discretion is used at all times with the use of towels and a screen. A small space/meeting area will be required.
Other treatments available include:
- Indian Head Massage
- Aromatherapy Massage
- Foot Massage
- Leg Massage
- Hand/Arm Massage
- Grief and Bereavement Counselling
- Naturopathic Nutrition
All equipment is provided and all therapists are fully qualified and insured with many years of experience. Discretion is used at all times with towels and a portable screen.

Regularly asked questions...
Are the treatments offered for men and women?
Yes, absolutely! Although historically it has usually been women that go for these treatments, our therapies are split 50/50 for men and women now. Men are really seeing the benefits of massage therapy and appreciate how good it is for their well-being too.
Do I need to take my clothes off?
It is entirely up to you. You can have a chair-based massage where all clothing remains with no oils used or you can choose to have a couch-based treatment where items of clothing are removed. Complete discretion is used at all times and no part of the body is exposed that is not being massaged.
Can I listen to music while having the massage?
If a room is used, we will bring along relaxing music to play quietly in the background.
I have really tense legs, can these be massaged or is it just back?
Of course, you don't have to have a back massage, you can have your legs (back, front or both) massaged.
I have a verucca, can I still have reflexology or a foot massage?
Yes you can, however we would insist on a small plaster to cover that area.
I'd like an Indian Head Massage but don't want my hair messed up, do you have to use oils?
No, we don't use oils when doing an Indian Head Massage - you may need to bring a brush/comb for your hair though!
I've been told to drink water after a massage, is it necessary?
Yes, it is advisable for you to drink water following your massage treatment to ensure hydration. Massaging muscles gets fluid pumping out of the soft tissue and into your circulatory system, where it heads towards your kidneys (hence a lot of people need to go the toilet following a treatment).
I'm allergic to nuts and wheat, can I still have massage with oils?
Yes, we don't use any oils that contain nuts or wheatgerm. We use a well-known massage wax that is completely free of any nuts and if we are carrying out an aromatherapy massage, essential oils will be used with a nut/wheat free base oil.
Sometimes I fall asleep when having a treatment, is this ok?
Of course, this is your time and if you wish to fall asleep that's absolutely fine!
Why do I need to complete a health questionnaire prior to treatment?
It is essential that we need some details from you so we know if there are any specific medical conditions that we may need to deal with i.e. epilepsy (we would ensure we use the correct oils if doing an aromatherapy massage as some oils have contraindications) or low blood pressure (ensuring you take the time to get up slowly from the couch). All information supplied is strictly confidential but is provided for your benefit.
The office that will be used is glass-fronted and I don't want people seeing me have a massage.
That is no problem at all, we have a 6-panel black screen that can be used - the treatment will be completely private.
If I make a booking and then need to cancel at the last minute, will that be a problem?
No, that is fine as long as we are informed. Your £5 deposit paid to secure your time slot will not be refundable but can of course be transferable to another day/time.
If you use oils, will they stain my clothes?
No, the oils and wax used will not stain clothing and we will ensure that any residue oil is removed with towels.
