The trial details
Nineteen female volunteers who worked in management or administration were provided with a corporate type “Chair massage” twice a week for two months. Detailed scientific questionnaires were used to measure their levels of neck and upper back pain and discomfort. Measurements were also made of their head and neck ranges of movement. Over the month ranges of movement improved approximately 10-15%. while their levels of neck and upper back pain also reduced considerably.
Our article “Massage for health and wellbeing” discusses several other trials of regular corporate style massage that show very worthwhile reductions in symptoms such as pain and anxiety.
