On Point Acupuncture & Wellness Announces New Customized Worksite Wellness Programs to Reduce Workplace Stress

BOSTON, April 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Massachusetts acupuncture clinic On Point Acupuncture & Wellness is offering custom workplace wellness programs for Boston corporate offices and businesses in the surrounding areas. Workplace wellness programs improve productivity and employee satisfaction, and On Point Acupuncture & Wellness can assist with providing customized programs on-site.

About 90 percent of all visits to primary care providers are related to stress, and over half of lost workdays have been shown to be stress-related. Up to 80 percent of industrial accidents in workplaces or on job sites are due to stress. Additionally, 14 percent of workers report that it was stress that caused them to change jobs or quit a job.

Employee stress, pain and illness cost companies untold amounts of lost revenues each year. However, when workers are healthy, they are less likely to take sick days or become injured on the job. They are also far more likely to be productive, focused and effective at work. 

On Point Acupuncture & Wellness is dedicated to helping Boston, Massachusetts, companies reduce costs by decreasing worker stress and increasing productivity. The experienced practitioners from On Point Acupuncture & Wellness will work directly with each employer to create a customized program which may include acupuncture, physical therapy and massage for increased worksite health and wellness. A primary focus of these programs is to improve the productivity and job satisfaction of workers, resulting in lowered employee costs and higher business profits.

Workplace wellness programs have a range of documented benefits. They can help to reduce worker illnesses and absenteeism while raising their effectiveness. They can also reduce insurance claims filed which can result in lower premium costs. This in turn boosts employee morale, workers report having a higher rate of job satisfaction, and company loyalty and longevity are increased.

Workplace wellness programs can include screenings, educational lectures, individual or group therapy sessions and employee health fairs. Programs can be conducted on- or off-site at a convenient location. Each business receives a customized wellness program based on their needs.

On Point Acupuncture & Wellness can also assist with promotion of health education via flyers, newsletters, emails and discount promotions. Programs and incentives for smoking cessation and weight loss are also an option. Flexible spending and health savings accounts offer an added incentive.

Karin Kramer, Lic. Ac., and founder of On Point Acupuncture & Wellness shares, “Each workplace wellness program we design is customized to each company. We know the firsthand the benefits these programs can bring and look forward to creating the perfect health and wellness program for each new business client.”
