Finally, the therapist will give exercises and/or guidance.
It’s important to note that the sessions are conducted with the utmost confidentiality.
3.WHAT KIND OF SPACE DO I NEED TO RECEIVE THIS SERVICE?
In order to receive the service in your company, you simply need to locate a closed space. This space should be large enough to put a treatment table and room to circulate around. As for the rest, the therapist will arrive with the necessary equipment and settle in. He or she will then get started!
4. MY EMPLOYEES ONLY DO OFFICE WORK… HOW CAN THIS SERVICE BE USEFUL?
Indeed, even if your employees only do office work, osteopathy and physiotherapy can greatly help! Posture guidance can be beneficial on one hand, while treatments can also be helpful on the other hand. As far as posture is concerned, working for a long time in an office chair leads to a posture that can leave something to be desired. Bad posture can cause significant muscle tension, leading to pain. Advice and adjustments on posture will be highly beneficial to relieve and prevent ailments.
