Many people like to think they do not "suffer" from stress. For them to admit to it is like saying "I cannot cope," and this gives impressions of weakness and failure. Others may think of stress as just the modern excuse for getting off work. We may try to convince ourselves and those around us, that things are fine; when in fact they are not.
The fact is, that at some stage during our lives, we experience varying levels of stress – and most people experience a high-level at some time. If you are responsible for staff, you will need to be aware that they may be facing many new experiences and challenges.
On average 13.4 million working days are lost through stress each year costing UK business £3.8 billion. In addition, more employers are spending time and money defending stress related claims through the courts.
A tribunal awarded £170,000 compensation to a person who was dismissed because of work related stress. Whatever the true costs of stress, they are too high!
Stress itself is not necessarily a problem, it is normal and even useful! When adrenaline is pumping around your body and "all systems are go" you often feel as if you can take on the world. It can help you to reach a peak in performance. As a manager, this is clearly important – they need to be peaking in performance at various times, often for extended periods.
Anyone requiring an in-depth understanding of stress and measures to combat stress.
Therapeutic Massage has been used to heal and sooth the body for thousands of years.
Massage works on two levels. The first being the physical level with the effect of improving circulation, stimulating the lymphatic system and relaxing the muscles, the second is the psychological level of relaxation and positive emotions that are produced when messages are sent by the sensitive nerves in the skin to the brain so as to encourage a state of total calm.
Many companies now give time, or financial support to employees wishing to take advantage of massage within the workplace; such schemes giving benefits to both employees and employers by reducing stress and so improving efficiency and reducing absenteeism significantly.
We run these as a separate course or as part of the Stress Management course.
