Promoting Health and Wellbeing in your company
Apollo Physiotherapy offers a number of health and well-being supports to suit your company needs.
Employees are the most valuable asset to any company. The welfare of employees has a direct impact on the success of a company. Healthier employees tend to take fewer sick days and be more engaged with work and the workplace community.
Pro-active measures by employers such as putting in place employee health and well-being supports can help to reduce absenteeism. Health promotion programmes aim to improve employee health and wellbeing.
The benefits to employers are numerous including:
- Enhanced recruitment and retention of healthy staff
- Decreased rate of illness and injuries
- Reduced employee absenteeism
- Improved employee satisfaction
- Increased productivity
Posture Education Seminars
The Posture Education Seminar is an informative and interactive hour-long lecture presented to employees by a Chartered Physiotherapist. The modern office environment is a recipe for poor posture, poor breathing patterns and muscle imbalances. The Posture Education Seminar is designed to teach employees how to best look after their bodies in the workplace environment and beyond. It will also include exercises to address common postural imbalances, which can lead to a reduction in back pain, repetitive strain injuries and muscle tension.
Corporate Chair Massage
Whether provided regularly, or as an employee appreciation treat, corporate chair massage can help keep your employees healthy and happy. Massage has been shown to reduce blood pressure and reduce muscle tension in the postural muscles of the neck and back, overall reducing the day to day stresses of the modern working environment.
Corporate Pilates Classes
Pilates is a mental and physical conditioning programme designed by Joseph Pilates at the beginning of the 20th century.
It incorporates elements from many disciplines including yoga, martial arts, gymnastics, skiing, dance and weight training. Joseph Pilates developed a system which he believed promoted the perfect balance of strength and flexibility.
For this reason, Pilates classes are the perfect antidote to the postural imbalances that develop as a result of poor postural habits in our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.
Benefits of on-site Pilates classes include:
- Improved Energy
- Improved strength and flexibility
- Improved Posture, Balance and Co-Ordination
- Reduced muscle tension and stress
- Reduced back and neck pain
