The main objective of this survey is to gather information on the different known aspects and benefits of corporate massage and in context how/what role they play with its marked effects in a business and its employees. These include:

Healthify believes in evidence based methods and believed it was important and beneficial to understand how their service is impacting their clients. Very few studies have been completed specifically on corporate massage and most of it is outdated. All the service providers in the industry are using the same generic claims that are actually not directly applicable to their service because the treatments provided may differ from the ones from the study. The only way to have certainty on how Healthify’s treatments make a difference to its clients was to conduct an in-house survey. The survey would focus on three aspects:
-The participant’s observation of how the treatment impacted their bodies;
-The participant’s observed changes after the implementation of the corporate massage program; and
-The participant’s perception of the program within the business.
