Review : Therapy
| Do you,
like us, spend your working days hunched uncomfortably over a computer
screen while demonic overseers lash your bent back with barbed whips?
Do you limp home at nightfall, aching and contorted, requiring a hot bath
and three quick whiskies to feel halfway human again? Then rejoice, fellow
office workers, for we at Daily Information, ever eager to be of service,
have found the solution. Her name is Yvette, and she has cone to bring
blessed relief to your tortured frame.
It's one of those ideas which is so simple and obvious that I for one am amazed not to have met it before. A visiting therapist brings her own special chair and sets it up in your office. The wage slaves form an orderly queue, worked out on sound democratic principles, and a succession of sore backs, stiff necks and cases of "typist's wrist" are melted away, leaving an office full of serene, almost Buddha-like figures, positively gleaming with increased productivity.
You may think that this lyrical picture is somewhat exaggerated, but that only goes to show how much you need to experience it for yourself. You simply have no idea how much tension and discomfort you can accept as natural until it's all gone. If you work in any other position than on your back in a hammock, wave this review at your boss and demand that he or she arrange regular visits in the interest of morale, citing the dramatic improvements in the health and attitude of our team as your evidence.
Humour aside, though, employers' attitudes have changed over the past few years and most now realise that such treatments pay for themselves, through improved working atmospheres and reductions in illness and absenteeism, and therefore many often pay in full or subsidise the service.
The other advantages are simple and obvious too. Little space is required, clothes do not need to be removed and no oils or creams are used. The massage is based on Japanese acupressure, working on the back, arms, hands and neck area to reduce stress and fatigue, and boost energy and alertness. The session takes only 20 minutes and can be arranged at your convenience. What are you waiting for?
Costs are £220 per day for up to 11 sessions or £140 for up to 7 sessions. Please contact Yvette Best on 07973 638 050 for more information
