Revitalizing Chair Massage
At acufit at work, we have developed a treatment protocol that will only take about 15 minutes out of an employees’ busy schedule. It simply involves having that stressed-out individual sit comfortably on a massage chair.
We will then apply various healing techniques designed for each individual’s needs, ranging from massage to ear acupuncture. After the treatment, clients report a sense of revitalization, decreased physical discomforts and more focused attention.
Our Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists are New York State Licensed.
Munch, Learn, and Earn™ is a program consisting of thirty-minute lunchtime presentations on different topics, given by various licensed professional health care experts. Covering one topic per week, MLE™ gives employees the education and knowledge to empower them to make educated decisions about their health.
Munch, Learn, and Earn™ presentations are purposely given weekly during the work-day lunchtime so employees can walk away with working knowledge on multiple health topics in a relaxed atmosphere in just a total of two hours, spread over the course of a single month.
As added motivation to attend all Munch, Learn, and Earn™ presentations, employees can have an added bonus of accruing Wellness Points, which can be used towards earning extra cash and prizes.
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker. Pains in the shoulder, back, neck, wrists, legs, and feet are caused by improper ergonomics.
At Champion International Corporation, they provided ergonomic assessments and assistance and then followed up by educating employees on lifestyle issues and handling materials. This innovative program paid off.
Cornell University has released much-needed ergonomic guidelines for computer users, designed to make your workstation a more comfortable, efficient, and user-friendly place to be. And with the longer and longer hours that many Americans are now spending in front of their computer screens at work and at home, they couldn’t have come at a better time.
Our workspace ergonomics staff members are a physical therapist and ergonomist and an Alexander Technique teacher who will conduct one MLE per month and will evaluate employees one-on-one to try to suggest ways to maximize efficiency and comfort and minimize injuries.
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art and science of creating harmonious environments. It is an expression of oneness and interconnectedness of all things on all levels. Feng Shui is not a New Age fad. Feng Shui’s objective is to shift the energy, creating a calmer and more efficient working environment.
A healthier working environment increases good decision-making. Employees will feel more at ease, which will lead to higher productivity, competence and an increase in profits.
Corporations that have utilized Feng Shui principles have become even more successful than ever before.
- Donald Trump incorporates these principles into most if not all of his real estate dealings, including Trump Towers in New York City.
- Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has consulted with Feng Shui practitioners for his businesses.
- Elie Tahari (Founder & CEO of Tahari Company) has doubled his company’s size since utilizing Feng Shui.
- Emanuel (of Emanuel Ungaro), Smith Barney, Creative Artists Agency in Beverly Hills, CA, and MGM Grand Hotel and Mirage Resorts in Las Vegas, all have experienced the magic of Feng Shui.
The list is endless. All these companies have similar things in common:
- maximized profits
- healthier working environments
- and happier employees.
