What is Corporate Reflexology?
In brief, Corporate Reflexology is Reflexology treatment given in the workplace for the benefit of both the employer and employee. Every company small or large requires the best team of employees to succeed. It is the aim of most companies to deliver increasing profitability which can best be achieved with a happy, healthy workforce. Corporate Reflexology could have a direct positive impact on a company's employees and therefore on its success.
Corporate Reflexology is specifically designed to improve and maintain the health, fitness and wellbeing of a company's workforce. By doing so this will have a direct impact on important KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) such as absence levels, employee turnover and employee performance, all of which have a large financial impact on a business and thus its profitability.
Corporate Reflexology packages are appropriate in any industry whether the majority of staff roles involve physical exertion(e.g engineering) or are largely sedentary(e.g. office based work). No matter what type of business the ultimate aim of Corporate Reflexology is to enrich fitness, health and wellbeing and to improve and increase performance in an individual and thereby the company.

Examples of Reflexology Research Studies in the Corporate Environment.
A number of overseas countries have been addressing the problem of stress in the workplace for several years. In Denmark for instance Occupational Health Services have worked closely with employers to develop a flexilble approach involving complementary therapies, particularly reflexology. The results have been impressive.
Odense Post Office (Denmark) has employed a full time refloxologist since 1990, the results were a 13.3% reduction in sickness and absenteeism which produced savings of around £100,000 for the business.
Ishoj Municipal Health Department (Denmark) recorded 2500 fewer sick hours over a six month period where employess received regular reflexology treatment. This produced savings of around £21,400 for the business.
In the UK the Danish examples are now being followed by large and small businesses and organisations of all kinds including City and Borough Councils, Schools, Hospitals and Football Teams.
