We have collected some key findings to show you just how valuable having regular massage within your workplace could be for your company savings.
Staff absenteeism costs your company.
The 2011 Absence Management report highlights: On average, employers lose 9.1 working days per employee per year in the public sector, 8.8 days in the nonprofit sector and 5.7 days in the private sector to sickness absence.
Absenteeism can be prevented leading to big savings.
NICE ( National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) estimates that substantial savings can be made through preventative treatment: Mental ill health costs UK employers almost £1 million per year. For an organisation with 1000 employees, the annual cost of mental ill health was estimated to be more than £835,000. Identifying problems early – or preventing them in the first place, could result in cost savings of 30%. This is equivalent to cost savings of more than £250,000 per year.
Musculoskeletal and mental health conditions make up 75% of work related illnesses.
We know that in 2010/11, 75% of new work-related health problems were either musculoskeletal or related to stress, depression and anxiety (NICE, 2012).
Massage can help!!
With stress…. A review of the literature looking at the Physiological Adjustments to Stress Measures Following Massage Therapy shows that a single massage treatment can have a beneficial effect on reducing cortisol levels, heart rate and blood pressure of the recipient, therefore helping to prevent stress related problems before they arise.
And with back pain… A review of the literature showing the effectiveness of Swedish massage in treating chronic low back pain found on NBCI ((National Center for Biotechnology Information) shows that Swedish massage is reported to relieve chronic low back pain by enhancing physical functions; providing pain relief, improving disability and range of motion, improving psychological functions; reducing anxiety and improving mood.
How much does workplace massage cost?
