Wellness in the Workplace wants to bring massage therapy to your employees!
In a competitive marketplace, it can be a challenge to attract and retain employees and at the same time improve productivity. That is why more and more of the country's top employers are realizing the benefits of providing employees with a massage therapy program. This is a low-cost solution which offers many gains for both the employer and employee.
What are the main benefits of having a corporate massage therapy program in your company?
Benefits for Employers
Many companies who implement massage therapy programs for their employees notice an almost instant boost in employee morale. Employees instantly feel happier, more confident, and more driven at work when they can take advantage of a massage therapy program. What does this mean for the workplace?
Less absenteeism at work
Because massage therapy helps to reduce stress levels, employers find that employees are generally healthier and take less sick days from work. It is a proven fact, that higher stress negatively impacts the body's immune system which makes a person more prone to catching the common cold, viruses, or other bugs.
Massage therapy can also address workplace issues like repetitive strain injuries or carpal tunnel syndrome, and fatigue.
Increased employee retention
Another benefit to employers is that it is much easier to retain your employees. Every time that an employee leaves and is replaced requires investment in resources, which can cost the employer in the long run.
Companies that have implemented a corporate massage therapy program, find that there is less employee turnover because employees are generally much happier in the company.
Greater company productivity
Your company will not only experience a happier workplace with employees taking less sick time, but productivity will also increase.
Corporate massage therapy programs have proven to increase employee problem-solving skills because massage helps both the body and mind to relax. This helps employees to take on new challenges with a fresh and positive outlook.
Benefits for Employees
Of course, anyone who has access to a regular massage program is going to feel the benefit physically, mentally, and emotionally. For the employee, this is a very important fact to achieve work-life balance and enjoy working for your company.
What are some of the benefits for employees of being part of a corporate massage therapy program?
Better general health
Massage therapy helps to reduce many work-related health issues like headaches, back strain, fatigue, and high blood pressure. The increase in a general feeling of wellbeing means that the employee is generally happier at home and can deal with all areas of life in a calmer and more relaxed manner.
Greater company appreciation
When the employee feels that he or she is well cared for, their appreciation of the company increases. One of the main reasons for employees wanting to leave their job is a feeling that the company doesn't care about its employees. Massage therapy programs address that issue successfully.
An employee who feels appreciated will more likely feel motivated to give 100% to his work and be driven to excel at their jobs. They feel more focused, energized and suffer less from "brain fog."
In the end, having a corporate massage therapy program for your workplace is a very cost-effective way to boost employee morale and increase your company's productivity.
Eric Franceschi, owner of Wellness in the Workplace, has been a great addition to Level One Bank. His company provides an added benefit to all our employees by visiting our office once per month to perform massage therapy to any employee that's interested in reducing some of the stress they feel during their work week.
Wellness in the Workplace has been visiting Level One Bank for more than 3 years. Anyone who takes a moment to get a massage always leaves the session feeling relaxed and ready for whatever is next on their work schedule. I often hear people remark what a great job Eric does and they wish they had tried to service sooner.
Eric is always very professional, personable, and a knowledgeable therapist. He takes time to inquire about how to help with any issues you may have and works on specific areas of discomfort. I, and many others, would miss the special benefit Wellness in the Workplace brings to Level One Bank.

Concise Computer Consulting has been utilizing Wellness In The Workplace for bi-monthly wellness/massage visits since 2013. Our staff has been extremely happy with the perk of receiving in-office massage, and they really look forward to the visit each month.
Eric and his team at Wellness in the Workplace are incredibly professional, and also very flexible, offering our team different styles of massage, tailored to their comfort levels. Whether you want a deep conversation with deep tissue massage, or just want to rest and relax to the sounds of the relaxing music that they often play, they cover it all.
From time to time our team members have brought "areas of trouble' to the therapists' attention. If there are acute issues that need to be addressed (muscle soreness, muscle tightness, etc.), Eric and his team have done a great job of assisting us with working through those issues.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Wellness in the Workplace, and we strongly recommend their services to others!

After spending 20+ years in the corporate environment, Terri knows first-hand how fast-paced demands and expectations can affect the mind and body. Her natural propensity to want to help people, combined with the need she saw, moved Terri toward applying for massage school. Shortly after, in September 2018, she graduated from Irene's Myomassology Institute (Southfield, MI). Terri learned a variety of therapeutic and relaxation techniques, which she incorporates in her practice, to create a custom massage for each client. Her goal is to help people let go, regenerate, and come back to their day with less physical tension and a renewed sense of energy.
Terri decided to continue her education once she realized her true passion for the healing arts. She is currently studying Ayurveda, and working as a Licensed Massage Therapist, at BeAyurvedic Wellness Center in Farmington, MI.

Massage? At work? Yes, it really works.
Studies have shown that the annual cost of lost productivity related to stress and job dissatisfaction can be as high as $2,500 per employee. Clearly, if it is not addressed, the cost to employers is very significant.
The benefits of corporate massage improve your bottom line.
“EVERY DOLLAR INVESTED IN HEALTH AND WELLNESS PROGRAMS CAN SAVE $3.48 IN HEALTH CARE COSTS AND $5.82 IN LOSSES DUE TO ABSENTEEISM.”
Job stress and related ailments are estimated to cost business more than $200 billion annually with $26 billion spent on medical and disability payments and $95 billion in productivity loss annually.
The new prescription to prevent injury and protect profits. We’re talking a huge return on investment.
Health care costs have skyrocketed, while employees face more ailment-causing stresses than ever before. That’s why more and more companies are turning to massage therapy as a preventative measure for their employees – and a high return on investment. Sessions take as little as 15 minutes, requires no learning time for employees and no additional supplies from employers. The benefits of massage include increased productivity, improved office morale, stronger health and well-being, reduced employee sick days, and lower workers’ compensation claims and health care costs. The bottom line? A huge return on investment (ROI).
Employee injuries are a big pain in the neck. And a big dent in your profits.
Surgery to correct Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: $12,800 to $22,000+ (depending on location)

If your primary goal is to relax, Swedish massage is an ideal modality for you. It can reduce pain through soft tissue manipulation. It is believed to flush toxins by increasing blood flow, promoting healing. Studies have consistently found that Swedish massage can help reduce blood pressure in people with hypertension. Studies have also shown massage decreases levels of two stress hormones (cortisol and vasopressin). Reducing stress improves overall immune function.
If you have persistent muscle discomfort, or just prefer firmer pressure, deep tissue massage is a great option as a modality for a couples massage. Deep tissue work combines different techniques, including Swedish and trigger point work. It can address particular areas or be a full-body massage. Helps ease low back pain, increases range of motion, and improves heart and lung function.
Sports massage isn’t just for top athletes, it’s good for anyone with an active lifestyle using a combination of deep tissue massage, myofascial release and assisted stretching, sports massage is an effective technique to prepare for an activity, decrease muscle soreness, improve flexibility, and increase range of motion.
Pregnancy comes with aches and pains. A prenatal massage helps ease the discomfort utilizing a variety of techniques performed by prenatal-trained massage therapists. While prenatal massage is, by necessity, not as strong as a deep tissue massage, it has profound effects on both mother and baby.
Corporate Massage Day
A Unique Approach
Wellness in the workplace is a mobile massage company that provides licensed and professional massage therapy services in the corporate workplace. My company has been around for over eight years and currently serves some of Metro Detroit’s largest and upcoming businesses!
A brief description of a corporate massage day:
The hours and dates are determined by the individual location, some businesses book us weekly, monthly, and even every other month. We are able and willing to accommodate any industry!
The businesses provide this service, paid for by the employees themselves, and it is very popular with our clients. Some businesses elect to pay for the massages as a gift to their employees as well. Clients would be allowed to sign up (before set date) and choose as many time slots as they wish and that their workplace would allow, which is usually between 15-30 minutes. The price always stays at $1 a minute😊 and we accept cash and all major credit/debit cards.
Each session allows the employee a custom clothed table massage, YES that is not on a chair! Free aromatherapy and hot stones as well.
All equipment is provided by my company, the only requirements from the host company would be a room with enough space to fit a massage table and an electrical outlet.
Lastly, every one of our massage therapists is experienced, licensed, insured, and 100% professional. Companies may terminate any services at any time, no contract required.
