Body-Works Therapeutics offers corporate services such as workplace chair massage and yoga at your site. Many benefits have been proven to come from chair massage. A 2012 study published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice shows how only 15 minutes of chair massage per week measurably reduced nurses’ stress symptoms. Healthy employees with less stress, are more productive, make fewer work-related mistakes and create a more suportive, high-morale environment that improves employee retention.
