Government statistics show that for every £1 invested in staff wellbeing, there’s a return of £3 in improved efficiency and productivity. In addition, 57% of job seekers list benefits and work perks among their chief concerns when evaluating a job offer. Further, 80% of employees would choose an added perk instead of a raise (Glassdoor Survey).
Onsite massage is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to building a healthy, productive workplace. Used in conjunction with other productivity tools, it helps to create a well-rounded environment that supports employees. By establishing regular onsite office massage sessions, our aim at Xhilarate Office Massage is to benefit both employees as individuals and businesses as a whole through boosting morale, improving employee engagement and increasing productivity.

“In an increasingly busy business environment it is vital to ensure that employees have access to means by which stressors can be reduced in order to help keep productivity at the highest possible levels – after all, happy, healthy employees who can manage stress and anxiety are a company’s greatest assets.
Xhilarate Office Massage offers a superb solution to the stress and anxiety management issue – on-site head and shoulder massage. It has been clinically proven that head and shoulder massage reduces stress and anxiety. It also increases production of a set of ‘feel-good chemicals’ the endorphins and decreases production of the hormone associated with stress and anxiety – cortisol.
The studies all seem to agree that the reduction in cortisol was found in both salivary and urinary cortisol measurements – which shows that the benefit of head and shoulder massage is not merely transitory, but that the benefits actually last ‘between sessions’. Again, according to the research, regular sessions seem to work best – with a once weekly appointment helping to maintain the very real benefits of head and shoulder massage.”
