Massage and Pampering

According to Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical School, "between 60 and 90 percent of complaints brought to a doctor's office are due to stress." Just three stress related disorders: chronic pain, headaches, and hypertension account for more than half of lost wages due to absenteeism - over $30 billion a year in the USA.

The systemic effects of stress management are cumulative within an organization. Even the employees that choose not to participate in the massage program receive the benefits of an overall reduction of workplace stress.
