Seated (performed on a specially designed ergonomic massage chair).
Fully clothed (no messy oils are used and clothes are kept on).
Designed to relax AND reenergise.
Massage reduces the effects of the stress response in the body and mind, and releases feel good chemicals that revitalise us when we go back to work. Heart rate and blood pressure go down, as do levels of stress hormones such as cortisol. These effects are good for our health. Levels of dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin go up, which promote feelings of wellbeing, and the way the brain functions changes giving us greater clarity and effectiveness.
We believe that massage should not only be enjoyed in spas and on holiday (where you are already pretty relaxed), but in high-pressure environments, like the workplace and events.
There were 11.7 million stress-related absences last year in the UK alone (HSE)
