Home / CORPORATE WELLNESS / Do Employee Wellness Programs Increase Productivity?

Picture this: You’re running your business team, the team is productive, however, with the busy season there’s more pressure to provide output. One of your employees is complaining of neck pain; another is restricted to sitting due to severe back pain. Suddenly your employee productivity is down, and everyone, including yourself, is stressed.

This scenario is a common problem in business settings, but it is also avoidable with employee wellness programs. Active Release Technique for Corporate Wellness is a type of wellness program that offers soft tissue management to companies looking to reduce their worker’s comp costs and reduce work-related injuries. But do programs like this really increase productivity?


The Art of ART (Active Release Therapy)

ART stands for Active Release Therapy a patented, soft tissue management system which uses techniques to treat problems involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. This massage based therapy reestablishes proper motions between the fascia, the thin fibrous tissue that covers a muscle or organ, and the muscles. After therapy is completed a patient will have a better range of motion and less pain.

With ART, patients and businesses can avoid frequent doctors appointments, surgery, insurance, and worker’s compensation claims, and more.
