Reiki is a fantastic treatment for the workplace. It can be conducted at the person’s desk, or simply requires a room with a chair for a more personal experience. Treatments last between 20 and 30 minutes, and are a quality break for staff.
The recipient just relaxes in a chair while hands are gently placed around their head or on relevant areas of their body. The results can be similar to having undertaken a long meditation.
These short Reiki treatments can:
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Generate mindfulness / presence of mind
- Calm the mind. Improving clarity and focus
- Rejuvenate energy
- Facilitate better relationships with clients & colleagues
- Help physical problems they may be experiencing, including pain relief
- Provide emotional balance and assist with any psychological difficulties
- Provide ongoing well being maintenance
Staff are the most important asset to a business, and companies are increasingly aware of how important it is to look after their staff’s wellbeing to ensure they are productive, able to manage during stressful times, are supported and motivated. They also want to help minimise the number of sick days their staff take, which impacts their business performance and other staff during this time.
No-one is completely immune from stress and whether stress originates from our home life or work environment it still has an impact on our working life.
It is now commonplace for good organisations to provide wellbeing services and treatments to their staff as part of their employment package, or as an added benefit or service – to ensure happier, healthier and more focussed workers.
Whether offered weekly, bi-weekly or monthly for staff, and perhaps on a rotational basis, depending on number of employees – companies provide this as a complimentary service to staff, which is a great added value when pay rises aren’t possible during difficult economic times.
Some companies otherwise contribute to 50% of the treatment fee, with staff paying 50%, or simply offer staff the opportunity for these treatments during office hours should they wish to pay for it.
