As incentive, during a peak period or as stress prevention. A good decision! Chair massage is an effective way to reduce stress and to relieve and prevent stress-related complaints. Besides the known approach to absenteeism: team building, dealing with bullying, improving working conditions …, chair massage focuses on the stress resistance of your employees.
