“It’s such a great perk for employees at head office having Yvonne’s monthly visits. It’s so lovely being able to offer employees time to totally switch off and look after themselves. Thank you for keeping us happy, healthy and relaxed Yvonne!” Cath Kidston head office
Whatever the size of your business, it makes sense to look after your biggest asset – your employees. A fit and healthy workforce is key to an organisation’s performance, and each year millions of working days are lost to stress-related illnesses.
70% of HR professionals feel that stress is a problem in their organisation (HSE, 2007). By introducing a Wellbeing at Work service, it gives staff an opportunity to experience holistic therapies which may reduce stress, boost effectiveness and improve general wellbeing.
I offer Reflexology, Chair Massage (fully clothed) and Thai Foot Massage.
Effects of stress in the workplace:
- Low morale
- Tiredness and irritability
- Reduced physical performance
- Lowered immune system, leading to the development of more physical illnesses
- Reduced creativity and productivity
How can a Wellbeing at Work service help your company?
Treatments are carried out in-house and the practitioner brings a special chair for the client to sit in. Treatments can take between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on the time-scale available.
Each company chooses its own level of involvement. In some businesses, each employee is fully responsible for the cost of their own treatments. Other companies chose to subsidise the treatments for their staff. Whatever works for your company.
The therapist requires a small, private room to practice from in-house, and a method of promoting the service internally.
If your business is interested in providing a Wellbeing at Work service for its staff, I will be happy to offer a free consultation to discuss your organisation’s needs.
I have an ABC Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology and am fully insured against Public Liability and Malpractice claims. I also hold qualifications in Seated Chair Massage and Thai Foot Massage. I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists and abide by their code of conduct, offering a totally confidential service.
