Employee benefits

The Healthy Back Programme is for organisations with employees who experience back pain, stiffness and who want to remain mobile and pain free. If your staff spend long hours sitting at a desk, driving or doing work that creates tightness in specific muscles, then this programme is for you.

The Healthy Back Programme stretches and strengthens the muscles along the spine, releases tension and mobilises the back.  Participants often experience benefits throughout their whole body. Through regular practice, the Healthy Back Programme can reduce back pain and stress, improve vitality and increase confidence. It’s a tried and tested programme shown to be highly effective for keeping employees productive and pain-free.

 

How much time is needed?

With just a few minutes of practice each day, employees can experience enormous benefits, regardless of whether they have a history of chronic back pain or simply want to learn an easy to follow formula to maintain a strong and healthy back.
