Occupational Therapy in the Corporate Setting: 
We bring the clinic to you


Occupational Therapy is the area of soft tissue treatment has benefits for both the employer and employees through enhancing worksite wellness. A study by Medibank Private found that healthy workers are three times more productive than those who define themselves as having poor health – taking on average 18 sick days a year as compared to 2 sick days for those who describe themselves as having good health. Workers with good health and lifestyle habits take less sick leave, are more satisfied with their performance and perform more effective working hours each month.

 

Benefits of Occupational Therapy for the employees include:

  • Decrease in muscular pain and tension

As a part of our service we conduct visits to the workplace and treat individual employees on site. Generally, we complete a three-month trial period at the worksite. Prior to the commencement of our services we are willing to give a presentation to your executive team describing the benefits of our service and how it would work. Visits are weekly, fortnightly or monthly. We can also adapt this to best meet your workplace needs. Each session runs for either 15 minutes or 30 minutes. The cost of the service falls onto the individual employees as if they were visiting a clinic for therapy and there are rebates through private health insurance.
