Expansion into the Corporate World: As you may be aware Nature To Nurture has always keenly attended events – from open-air festivals such as Wilderness & the Camden Mela to pamper evenings for local causes like the Rennie Grove Hospice & national charities like the NCT Bumps & Babies Festival. Recently though I have been expanding my interests into the corporate & business world with on-site massage to reinvigorate hard-working office employees.
So October sees me starting my venture at Whitbread Plc: corporate home to brands such as Costa Coffee (much as I love herbal tea it would be rude not to take up the offer of free coffee on site!), hotels Premier Inn & the new urban hotel venture Hub by Premier Inn, Beefeater & Taybarns restaurants, & pub chains such as Brewers Fayre & Table Table. I am more than happy to be offering easy on-site massage for them at two locations in Bedfordshire including their head office in Dunstable.
Desk-Based Corporate & Office Work
It has been 4 years since I left the Corporate world of BP Plc & my own office-based career in Accounts & Finance. After 11 years I well remember long hours hunched over a desk staring at a computer screen. Just a look at the photo above shows the typical ‘C-shaped spinal’ posture that can result.
Even with the correct ergonomic desk set-up many of my office-based clients complain of neck & shoulder aches; low back pain; issues with legs, knees & feet from long hours of sitting; & arm, wrist & hand repetitive strain injuries which naturally occurs with all that typing.
Chances are of course that it might not even be your own desk: many of my clients report that they are hot-desking, travelling between office sites & sitting where they can. Hours can be long – some of my clients work as long as 15-16 hour days! If this is how you work it is very unlikely to be comfortably set-up to suit your body’s specific needs. Indeed, depending upon your employer a correctly ergonomically set-up work place might not happen at all. I was fortunate to work for many years with a company who offered a brilliant Health & Safety desk policy, but also one firm which made me build my own chair & offered nothing else!

As well as physical conditions office-work can also be mentally tiring & emotionally stressful. Many clients report feeling increasing & overwhelming pressure from responsibility, & worry from working long hours which can also affect their home life & sleep patterns. Massage can be of great help to employees offering revitalisation & invigoration by inducing a more relaxed physical & mental state. Employers are increasingly keen to improve their employees well-being & adhere to a good Health & Safety policy.
