Corporate Reflexology

Reflexology stimulates creativity and productivity, hence an increasing number of companies, city councils, as well as schools, are all among the organisations offering reflexology treatment to their staff. Doctors and nurses themselves are also feeling the benefits of Reflexology.

According to a BBC report, sick leave is costing the UK economy around £13bn a year, with back pain and stress being the major cause of time off, according to new research.

John Cridland, Deputy Director General of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), says:- “For the first time the CBI is highlighting how much a healthy population also matters to business. Reducing the cost of workplace absence should be seen as part of the overall drive to improve competitiveness.”

Gemma is aware of the daily pressures and stresses of working in a highly competitive working environment. Alongside management and employee relations experts, she understands that to be productive and successful, it is essential to maintain a healthy, motivated, and efficient workforce.

Coupled with work stresses, our society is becoming increasingly more demanding. People are working longer hours, and have less leisure time than ever before. The effects of stress on the body can become cumulative. If left untreated an individual’s performance at work may suffer, as they become increasingly tired and lacking in motivation.

Prolonged stress depletes the immune system leaving the individual prone to further ailments. In some cases, it can result in periods of sickness absentism, which is a significant overhead to businesses and to the individual.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development says sickness costs businesses an average of £520 for each employee per year.

While the nation's health is not deteriorating, the survey found that UK workers were taking more sick leave, clocking up an average 10 days a year. The institute questioned more than 1,300 organisations about sickness in the workplace.

Whilst many employers provide excellent working conditions, support services and sickness benefits, their approach to health care tends to be traditionally reactive. Reflexology is a preventative and maintenance therapy that can help employees balance their health, de-stress and relax during and after treatment.

Reflexology is now established as a respected and effective complementary therapy both in the workplace and amongst many doctors, health care professionals, and consultants. (top)
