Workplace wellness in Cumbria

Do you have a hardworking team of colleagues in Cumbria who deserve a real treat? The Lake District School of Massage team of qualified therapists will come to visit your workplace or event to provide healing, effective deep tissue massage treatments. Your team will be smiling all day!

Workplace massage for employee wellbeing provides your team with a real boost. Massage can help alleviate and prevent common issues for office workers including headaches and back pain. Providing your employees with a soothing treatment for typically tense areas including the back, neck and shoulders allows deep relief from everyday work and life pressures, resulting in an improved state of mind and energy levels.

So often full time workers struggle to find time to fit in wellness appointments around a busy schedule; having massage treatments at work can make wellbeing easy for your team.

We also provide massage visits at events so that you can treat your guests to a memorable experience.
