Sister Rosalind's On-Site program includes the chair massage, self-massage training, massage demonstrations, health fairs, lectures and seminars. Through On-Site programs, Sister Rosalind and her staff introduce people in the workplace to the healing effects of professional massage. Chair massage is a 10-15 minute neck, shoulder and back massage designed specifically to help relieve the pains associated with stress in the workplace. Sister Rosalind is turning the workplace into a stress reduction zone. Many employees are currently enjoying these brief yet effective massages. Whether scheduled on a regular basis or for special events, chair massage can improve morale, increased productivity, and foster general wellness in any organization.
Stress and the work place go hand in hand in this fast paced world. Work related stress can cause muscle tension and pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, decreased productivity and irritability. You may think that irritability is a minor symptom of stress, but if you operate a business where establishing and maintaining relationships is a must, irritability can damage the bottom line. In fact, according to the International Labor Organization, job stress costs the US economy at least $200 billion annually. Companies can lose money from diminished productivity, compensation claims, absenteeism, health insurance, and direct medical expenses among other factors.
Massage works wonders on stress related symptoms. According to a study from the Touch Institute in Florida, chair massage has been shown to:
- Cause heightened awareness
- Help performance on math problems
- Reduce job induced stress
- Elevate moods
- Relieve muscular tension
- Revitalize energy
- Strengthen immune systems

The therapists will generally give massages for 10 to 20 minutes using Swedish massage techniques to relieve tension. No oil will be used and the massage recipients can keep most of their clothes on.
