It’s the ultimate distraction
Emails, meeting, emails, meeting… you know how it goes. What better than to be able to switch off in the middle of the day, break it all up and think about something else for a change. The afternoon should fly by once you’ve let it all go.
Also, it only takes around 20 minutes per person for a good going over. So plenty of time left before needing to head back to your in-tray.
You don’t even have to leave the office
Are you one of the majority who crams down a daily sandwich at your desk? Stuck in that immobile routine and just can’t face the thought of going out for a wander about when there are vital emails (Facebook messages) just waiting to be sent?
Don’t fear, we haven’t forgotten you. Would you believe you can still find your zen with the keyboard just about in reach. Just leave it alone for a bit, though. It’s for your own good.
Nor do you have to take your kit off…
Yes, yes, yes… we’ve all got lumps and bumps and we’re supposed to love our bodies and be proud of all the strange, excess bits these days. But stripping off in public? Eish, no thanks.
Happily, you can even keep your sweater on for a cheeky back or neck rub. As for your legs? Well, just make it a shorts day!
… or bring any other kit with you
We’ve all seen them – those go-getting, healthtastic folks cluttering up vital office floor space with their badminton rackets, running gear and bicycles.
The good news is that you don’t have to lug a massage table, a box of essential oils or a cassette tape of soothing whale music between car park, lift and desk. Just bring yourself.
It doesn’t cost the earth and you can do it with friends
Those bicycles and rackets we mentioned? They don’t come cheap.
A quality massage therapist, on the other hand, tots up to R500 for an hour. And get this – they can use their magic powers to bring complete relaxation to three people in that time.
That’s just R166.66 each, or thereabouts. Oh go on then, make it R167!
It’s Cape Town – you’re supposed to be relaxed!
There’s a very good reason you work here and not in Joburg, London or anywhere else, right? Exactly. If other aspects of your lifestyle are chilled, there’s no reason your time at work can’t be as well.
You’ll go home happy
Ok, we can’t exactly guarantee this – who knows what the afternoon will bring – but the benefits of massage don’t come and go like the supposed benefits of a lunchtime doughnut.
Instead of going home, kicking the cat and shouting at the kids – you stand a good chance of being able to unwind more easily and enjoy some quality downtime during the working week.
A relaxed office is a hardworking office
One for the bosses, this. Just think for a second about how much more productive your staff will be when the vibe is cool, rather than stressed out.
Another bonus will be an almost certain reduction in passive aggressive emails being sent and received, clogging up the system instead of real work being done. Well, we can only hope.
Out on manoeuvres? No problem
A team-bonding exercise in the Tokai Forest, seminar at the Waterfront or workshop in Bellville is no barrier to the Massagemobile. It can reach you to provide sweet relief from the working day, wherever you are around Cape Town.
