Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) November 19, 2009 -- With increasing workloads and job insecurity in our present recession, stress has become a major issue in many companies. All types of work can result in stress on workers. Stress over a prolonged period can cause major problems such as heart disease and stroke.
Workers compensation claims have increased significantly in the last ten years. According to the NIOSH report, in California, the number of Workers' compensation claims for mental stress increased by almost 700 percent over eight years and ninety percent were successful with an average award of $15,000 compared to a national average of $3,420.
Chi Massager has been working together with stress management consultants by providing bulk discount massagers to companies. Portable massagers that are easy to use and can be taken anywhere, especially to the office. Employees who received these portable massagers can use them 4 or 5 times per day to massage their tense shoulders and back.
âWith the current technology, Hand Held massagers are getting better and more affordable. Many companies donât realize the benefit of this small hand held massager. Instead of buying a $90 massager for each employee, they spend millions of dollars on consulting companies to improve their internal management style. Just give each manager a portable massagerâ says Jeff, PR Manager of Chi Massager.
Itâs a well-known fact that massages can reduce stress. Since employees can use the hand held massagers during work, their stress level has reduced significantly.
