Corporate Wellness

That Actually Benefits Both

The Corporation And The Worker!

My Corporate Wellness Service is massage, and receipts can be issued for acceptance by all massage insurance programs.

But what comes to mind when someone says "Corporate Massage?" Do have visions of your workers getting oiled up and rubbed until they are so relaxed they are unproductive for the rest of the day? Or maybe it's the sight of workers kinda sitting in that silly looking massage chair, getting rubbed through their clothes? (I can't seem to find any therapist who actually enjoys providing chair massages - and shouldn't they enjoy what they are doing?!)

Maybe you are ready for something new, something unique, something better, something that actually benefits both the company and the worker...

Let me tell you about Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (Extended) - MAT(E). This modality falls under the massage umbrella, so it qualifies for all insurance coverage. I am Canada's most experienced Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT), and I have Extended the modality with additional techniques that follow the same slow, gentle, deliberate, and pain-free principles of MAT. I am uniquely qualified to bring this modality to your place of business.

MAT(E) will help your workers to relieve their stress, help to improve their posture issues, help to heal their injuries, and help to improve their personal performance. And it does this while leaving your workers more energetic and alert (and Productive!). Isn't this what Corporate Wellness should be about?

MAT(E) has the central focus of reducing or eliminating pain. Pain is often the body's compensation for traumas, misalignments, and other issues. When some part of the body is not performing correctly (or optimally), other parts of the body try to compensate. Compensation leads to immediate or future pain. Although some 85% of pain is idiopathic (unknown origin, comes and goes, changes intensity, moves around), MAT(E) encourages the body to perform correctly, with the consequence that Pain is reduced or completely eliminated.

In addition to dealing with Pain, MAT(E) has proven to be very effective for Injury Rehab, Mobility, Posture, and Work/Sport Performance issues, and more. Because MAT(E) is quite gentle, it is just as good for treating the elderly and frail as it is for treating athletes, weekend warriors, and your own workers.

MAT(E) techniques use massage as the foundation, and builds on it with techniques drawn from the worlds of physiotherapy, chiropractic, and others (including direct research). (NOTE: There are NO high velocity "bone cracking" moves. I can treat the same issues as physiotherapists and chiros do - differently, gentler, and probably safer). There are many paths to the same destination. I have trained in many of those paths, and find the most benefit from MAT(E).

Corporate Wellness Service - Details

  • Arrangements are made between a single corporate contact, and the V-Va Salon Spa general manager, to ensure no scheduling conflicts. Feel free to contact me via email, if you have questions.
  • If you do not have enough workers for the minimum requirements, feel free to make an arrangement with another company - though there must be only a single corporate contact for each on site daily visit, to be performed at a single location.
  • This service is delivered on site, so the corporate contact will be responsible for providing suitable space on the premises in which to provide the sessions, for making full payment in advance of the day's treatments, and for scheduling the sessions in whatever fashion is suitable for the corporation.
  • Payment is required in advance, as I have to commit to a full day that I am not able to use to accommodate other patients. If I am unable to attend, full credit or reimbursement will be made.
  • Proper receipts will be provided for the service as a whole, and for submission to insurance companies for reimbursement, if so desired.
  • All treatments are nominally 30 minutes in length with the worker fully clothed - the clothes may get a bit wrinkled, but the worker will have more mobility! The worker may have more than one session, if the company desires, whether or not they are consecutive.
  • Bookings are for an entire workday, with a minimum of 12 sessions, each session being a nominal 30 minutes long. Including time for two 15 minute breaks and one 30 minute break. That is 7 hours of straight time, excluding setup and takedown. More sessions can be negotiated, with appropriate additional break times.
  • The regular price for these sessions on an individual basis is $75 each, 50% higher than your Corporate Wellness pricing of $50 each. Minimum corporate booking is $600. GST is not included.
  • All treatment recipients will be required to sign a waiver in lieu of providing full medical histories. Issues and concerns will be communicated verbally and, in accordance with MAT(E) principles, any sign of pain will stop a technique in favor of another one.
  • The standard schedule follows:
