Corporate America: Don’t Get Caught Behind… RELAX.

Get an education that lasts a lifetime. Thousands of corporations large and small participate in ergonomic programs and chair massages to decrease work stress, on-the-job injuries and increase corporate productivity. ERGONOMICS is the facilitation of changes in the workplace intended to redude operator fatigue and discomfort. Poor ergonomics wastes energy, lowers quality of work and is a known cause of repetitive stress injuries and other health problems that cost a lot of time and money.

What is stress? The dictionary defines it as "pressure or tension exerted on a material object," but when it comes to humans, stress is subjective. The American Institute of Stress says stress defies definition and is difficult to measure. The term was coined in 1936 by Hans Selye, who defined it as "the non-specific response of the body to any demand for change." We know from studies that animals subjected to a variety of noxious physical and emotional stimuli (stress) exhibit stomach ulcers, shrinking of lymphatic tissue and enlargement of the adrenals, eventually having heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Take away the stress and you take away the disease. Proper ergonomics helps remove your physical and emotional workplace stress.

Let the therapists at Arizona Pain & Posture be your ergonomic consultants. A complimentary one-hour presentation includes understanding ergonomics and how to maintain proper posture in the workplace. We will take a dynamic look at how you move and rest in your workplace, as well as discuss how to care for minor injuries, and perform on-the-job stretches and exercises.

Professional Chair Massage: The massage is usually 10 to 15 minutes per person and the relief lasts a whole day. We will come to your office and put up a portable massage chair.  Our massage therapists are skilled in a variety of highly therapeutic chair massage techniques intended to produce immediate stress relief, including myofascial release and deep tissue massage. A two- to three-hour comprehensive massage time ranges from $300 to $550.
