Massage therapy is one of the most enjoyable types of stress reduction, but one that is rarely brought into the workplace. A recent study by Cedars Sinai* shows that massage therapy decreases stress hormones while increasing white blood cells, which are linked to improved immune functioning. Their findings support using massage as a complementary treatment for inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. It is also effective for treating low back pain and carpel tunnel syndrome, two common issues plaguing many professionals that spend most of the day sitting and typing at a desk.
Yoga by Nature includes onsite chair massage as a valuable and exciting aspect of the wellness program. Imagine the transformative effect of infusing your office environment with massage! This is a great additional benefit to offer to your staff and prospective new hires. Our highly experienced massage practitioners are also available for private sessions for any staff members that are interested in continuing their personal healing program out of the office.
