Over a period of more than 18years of working with around 6000 clients in Australia, we have found that massage is by far the most popular health and wellbeing initiative you can give to your staff. You only have to mention that you have arranged for the massages to take place and the overall morale of the office will be lifted. It’s a fabulous way to increase productivity, reduce stress and boost staff morale.
At Wellbeing2u our massage therapists have qualifications in both massage and ergonomics and this means that your staff receive the benefit of ergonomic education as well as the benefit of releasing muscular tension, reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders and pain, that’s two services for the price of one.
37% of all back pain is attributable to work (Nelson et al, 2005)
Our fabulous team, can spend 15 minutes taking your staff through a series of simple stretches designed to give more flexibility, greater movement and decrease the risk of musculoskeletal disorders which can occur at work. This service is delivered as 4 x 15 minute sessions, a one hour workshop, with up to 20 people per session. It is an interactive session, staff will get the opportunity to do the stretches and we provide strategies on how to make stretching fun as well as tools to implement it into your daily work.
The oH&S act of 2011 states, it is the responsibility of the employee to take reasonable care of their health and safety and it is the responsibility of the employer to provide and maintain for employees a working environment that is safe and without risks to health. Therefore, it is falls to both parties to be aware of the optimum ergonomic setup to ensure that staff are not at risk of muscular strain and sprain injuries which can be incurred from either static motion (not moving enough) or repetitive strain injuries (overuse of certain muscles incurred from incorrect ergonomic set up)
- Empowers staff to regulate their own ergonomic setup
- Relieves stress in the body
- Releases muscular tension and pain

Our team of highly trained, enthusiastic massage therapists will roam from desk to desk and ask staff if they would like a short neck and shoulder massage and while they are doing the massage they are able to view and assess the staff members current ergonomic setup and advise of any simple adjustments that can be made that would increase the level of comfort and increase their health and wellbeing.
If a staff member declines the massage, they can choose to take up the option of ergonomic advice, there is something for everyone.
We allow for 7 sessions per hour, around 8 minutes per person for this service.
