Are Your Employees Overstressed?
From manufacturers to hospitals to auto dealerships, companies across the
country are using seated massage services to make work less of a pain in the
neck for employees. Chair massage provides hard-working employees with a
convenient method of alleviating the stress inherent in these competitive times.
Slouching at a desk for prolonged periods

and a stronger immune system.
The study’s findings are significant in that

job stress costs the U.S. economy $200 billion annually through diminished
productivity, compensation claims, absenteeism, health insurance, and direct
