Prior to founding BusyBodies Workplace Massage, Christine Fitzgerald studied for 2 years at the prestigious Holistic Healing Centre in Dublin, where she gained practical expertise in a wide range of subjects. including anatomy and physiology, nutrition, aromatherapy, aromatherapy massage and Swedish massage. Further professional development has brought expertise in Indian head massage and Japanese shiatsu. Christine is also a member of the The Federation of Holistic Therapists.
As well as understanding the theory and practice of massage, Christine knows from personal experience how beneficial to health and wellness massage therapy can really be when a long-standing neck pain that she had been living with for some time was healed through regular massage therapy sessions.
It quickly became apparent that a large portion of the office-based workforce also suffers from very similar issues – stiff neck and shoulders, headaches and RSI related pain – and through our specially-developed chair massage routine BusyBodies is on a mission to rid London’s office workers of these unnecessary, chronic neck and shoulder issues, which are largely a result of spending long periods of time sitting at a desk, tapping on a keyboard and using a computer mouse.
BusyBodies uses a combination of established massage techniques and specially-designed aromatherapy blends to make a positive and lasting difference to our office massage clients. As a result BusyBodies has quickly developed a reputation for being able to alleviate aches and pains, as well as reduce stress and improve physical and mental well-being for clients, creating a healthier and happier team environment for employees and employers alike.
BusyBodies philosophy is firmly one of ‘prevention is better than a cure’ and uses a number of different massage techniques to apply this philosophy based on individual client needs, as well as offering post-massage care and advice on easy and effective techniques office workers can introduce into their daily lives to keep themselves feeling good.
BusyBodies philosophy is based on the fact that massage therapy most definitely has a very important role to play in healing, but also plays an equally important role in maintaining good muscle movement and preventing tension build up – something that causes high levels of discomfort and dissatisfaction for office-workers.
Many of BusyBodies regular clients have reported a huge reduction in pain and stiffness since their employer introduced a regular massage routine into their workplace. The fact is that in a time when people are leading extremely busy lives, with less and less free time, many of our clients who now enjoy the benefits of a regular therapeutic massage, have only been able to do so because they can have it whilst at work!
More and more companies are now becoming aware of how important staff well-being is for productivity and are now taking steps to help their workforce achieve a balance in their lives.
Offering onsite workplace massage is now a very popular, fuss-free and highly cost-effective way for employers to make a real difference to the well-being of their staff.
As well as onsite massage therapy in London, BusyBodies offers a premium aromatherapy-massage as an optional part of our service.
Over 90% of all clients regularly opt for the aromatherapy massage.
BusyBodies therapists can quickly assess the needs of clients and can advise on the best blend of aromatherapy oils depending on their needs on the day.
BusyBodies proprietary aromatherapy blends are carefully mixed to restore emotional balance, help sooth anxiety, reduce feelings of stress and elicit feelings of comfort and calm in clients as well as boost energy and increase feelings of happiness and well-being.
