Stress. We all experience it at home, at work, in life. It can be incredibly taxing, and affect every aspect of our lives, from our physical and mental health, to our relationships, to our job performance. Stress can lead to weight gain, inhibit sleep, cause chronic headaches and muscle pain, and bring on anxiety and any number of other physical, physiological and mental problems. Stress is always going to be a part of our lives, but we can learn to deal with it in positive and healthy ways.
CHS LiveWELL has Massage Therapists available to teammates. Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular and sports massage are a few of the modalities offered.
Make an appointment to experience the benefits of massage. Remember to consider massage for your next teammate appreciation event or recognition. Chair or table massage are available. Some therapists will travel to your location.
