It's no secret that your job can cause a real pain in the........
neck, shoulders, arms or even low back!

Massage for Occupation Related Conditions

Massage helps to relief stress and tension, and works out the muscle tightness that many jobs can create. Workplace massage is becoming increasingly popular because pain patterns and the physiological effects of workplace stresses are becoming more recongnized. We often times don't feel the pain while we are at work. It settles in at night when we try to sleep, or when we wake up in the morning and take those first painful steps out of bed. It can ultimately affect our job performance and quality of life. 

 

Occupation Related Conditions

Some of the most common work-related muskuloskeletal conditions are muscle, tendon or nerve injuries that can cause pain or discomfort. Orthopedic massage can help relieve symptoms of such conditions. If you suspect that you have pain that is related to your occupation, call us for a consultation. Any sudden onset of pain that persists without relief or causes numbness, please consult your physician first. Some common workplace conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome; caused by repetitive wrist motion

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome; nerve compression at base of neck

  • Forward Head Posture; results from long periods of poor posture like computer work

  • Lateral or Medial Epicondylitis; repetitive overuse syndrome of the elbow

  • Piriformis Syndrome; sciatic nerve compression

Benefits to Employers

In difficult economic times it might be hard to justify the expense of offering your employees the extra perk of massage therapy. However, the benefits may far outweigh the price. It gives employees optimal physical and mental well-being to achieve: 

  • Increased employee morale

  • Increased productivity

  • Reduced sick time off

  • Reduced risk of injury

  • Reduced stress and tension among staff

 

​Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) cards are accepted. Please inquire prior to your first appointment. Currently, we do not accept health insurance.
