Corporate Soul is changing the way America does business.
Our Chair Massage Program Promotes Health and Wellness
Discover why so many companies are getting in touch with Corporate Soul. Massage therapy is ancient and modern. It connects a person’s various internal aspects — mental, physical and emotional — into a seamless whole as it unites diverse individuals with common purpose — whether it be in a tribe or a corporation. Through nourishing and therapeutic touch, massage fosters a “sense of belonging” that cross-cultural social-intelligence research is demonstrating creates better team players through personal resiliency — the hallmark of a healthy and mature organization. As a result, the return on investment for a business enterprise is enormous.
A study by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami found that after five weeks, a group of 28 employees who had twice-weekly, 15–minute massages in the office fared better than a control group of 24 employees who were just told to close their eyes and relax. The massaged group experienced reduced stress and improved performance, while the control group did not.
