May 27, 2014 - PRLog -- However, experts in the wellness industry believe a person’s mind is actually the most effective tool available to raise productivity levels and the best thing an individual can do for themselves is to self-regulate their moods to avoid negatively affecting the mind.

Martina Laurie is the CEO of Hands On Treatment, a Proudly South African established local mobile massage company and Level 1 BBBEE Contributor. The Company specialises in on-location massage therapy and use fully trained mobile massage professionals who understand the significance of a relaxed, stress-free workforce.

Laurie believes that employees underestimate the benefits of being in a positive frame of mind. “Your overall sense of being is very much linked to your state of mind. If you think negatively, you will feel a sense of disharmony and of hardship. That ‘heavy’ feeling can be overwhelming and dilute focus, enthusiasm and passion. However, a relaxed and content mental state will have the opposite result and help instil a positive mood, which leads to free thinking, creativity and determination – all the ingredients for innovation and productivity,” she says.

Executive leadership at Hands On Treatment believe decision managers although generally acknowledge the need for inspired teams, enthusiasm and focus, sometimes overlook the importance of treatment that can help individuals achieve this.

Aspects such as group morale, feelings and overall mental states are seen as secondary to targets, actions and work loads.

Hands On Treatment says there is an extensive amount of research that has been done which proves the ‘mind-body’ connection and the scientific and medical proof that massage triggers natural responses which releases chemicals to help relax the body.

“Much has been written about this topic and about how we as people try to control our emotions and manage our moods. The truth is that it is possible to apply various techniques, including massage, to change our frame of mind and our moods,” says Laurie.

This represents the foundation of what Hands On Treatment is all about. The Company’s service is designed to help employees achieve that sense of wellbeing and relaxation to enhance their performance.

“It may be a cliché, but the truth is that a happy workforce is a productive workforce… that is the business we are in,” Laurie adds.
