Massage comes to office

PERTH business people can now have a relaxing massage in the comfort of their own office.

While the stress relieving and therapeutic benefits of massage have been well known for some time, the time cost of accessing a masseur’s services has often been an impediment.

New company Massage Therapy has formed to take the benefits of massage to the workplace.

One of the company’s four masseurs, qualified masseuse Robyn Jarvis said she got the idea for the company from enquiries at her E-Shed Markets stall.

Ms Jarvis said business people often complained to her they did not have enough time for massages.

She said the recent advent of massage chairs made it possible to take her service into offices.

A chair massage takes about fifteen to twenty minutes and their is no need for the client to disrobe or for the use of massage oils.

“The massage can help relieve headaches and digestive problems,” Ms Jarvis said.

“Tension in the shoulders can often restrict blood flow through the body which can lead to a range of problems.”

She has already done some work for Harvey Norman.

“My service can help employers give their employees a sense of wellbeing,” Ms Jarvis said.

“We do sports massage, acupressure, myofascial release, swedish massage, shiatsu and the Bowen therapy.”

The Bowen therapy is a technique created by Australian Rob Bowen that involves working on ligaments to stimulate blood flow.
