Who's a Good Fit
for Our Programs?
Every Business and Community Group has individual goals and needs when creating and implementing wellness programs. Some keep it simple and easy, and others are looking for a more comprehensive solution. We understand this and work with you to develop a program that's right for you.
Many businesses have implemented, or are interested in developing, health promotion programs for employees. The benefits of workplace wellness include:
* Improving employee health
* Reducing preventable health care utilization and lowering health care costs
* Enhancing work performance
* Improving employee satisfaction and retention
The benefits of workplace wellness programs are well documented. More than 150 different research studies that have been conducted repeatedly show themes such as improvements in health outcomes coupled with high returns on investment (ROI).
Fox Valley Wellness is an Illinois Non-Profit Organization that was created by local health professionals to make it easy for local businesses and community groups to host events and programs that help them to implement simple wellness strategies. This in turn can have a real impact on the health and well-being of the people who make these businesses and community groups successful.
At a time when many organizations are cutting wellness programs, Fox Valley Wellness offers these programs at no cost. Our mission is to help people realize their full potential by making available to them practical programs, tools and resources that they can apply to their lives immediately.
By teaming up with local forward thinking and health-minded businesses and community groups, our mission of helping those that participate to achieve a higher level of health and well-being for the greater good of the community is fulfilled.
What's in it for the doctors and health professionals that volunteer? Participants at our events are often looking for someone to team up with them to help improve their heatlh. Our volunteers get a chance to meet them and potentially work together on this.
The American Institute of Stress estimates that stress in the workplace costs U.S. corporations over $300 billion annually.
Many companies in high-stress industries or those with a strong culture of wellness are turning to massage therapy to calm workers' nerves, enhance productivity and preserve a healthy bottom line.
"Massage therapy benefits every system in the body. It reduces blood pressure, it aids relaxation, it improves posture, it fosters faster healing of strained muscles, it helps relieve tension, headaches and eye strain, it reduces levels of anxiety, it satisfies the need for caring, nurturing touch and it increases the mind body connection," says Marilyn Kier, licensed massage therapist, Wellness at Work, LLC.
Local businesses both large and small benefit from the many options available to fit the vision they have for wellness within their organiation.
Many schools support their teachers through a 'Teacher Appreciation Day' at which our chair massage therapists are always appreciated. The Community Outreach Director at your school will also be interested in the Lunch and Learn talks that our doctors regularly host at local schools.
Many local groups are looking for speakers to present at one of their meetings or get togethers.
Most churces have smaller interest groups within them that are often looking for speakers to present at one of their weekly or monthly meetings.
