Massage has proven to provide numerous benefits for people, especially in a work environment. Stress relieving activities help to renew energy and ease the mind.
If you would like to hire a massage therapist to come provide massage for employees, I can come to your office and perform 5-15 minute chair massages for $70/hour (2 hr. minimum).
It is nice to have a room that is not being used for the massages, but even a break-room can work.
