(PRWEB) March 31, 2006 -- Many universities are now making massage chairs available to their faculty, both in an effort to reduce stress and improve work performance, but also as a novel teaching tool. College faculty members are expected to fill many roles during the course of their day; they are friends, mentors and even surrogate parents, and wearing all of those hats can really wear a person out. In order to help their faculty stay energized, many schools have begun using a new breed of super-advanced massage chairs from companies like Premier Health Products and Panasonic to help reduce stress, and make their faculty more productive.
Faculty members are encouraged to take a massage between classes, or in the morning as they start their day. Many professors may not find the time in their busy schedules for traditional massage therapy, but massage chairs offer a quick way to get many of the same benefits with no sticky oils and no appointments.
At some institutions, massage chairs are being used not only to unwind faculty, but also as a way to build faculty student relationships. These institutions use advanced massage chairs as a way to get faculty and students together outside if the classroom on “neutral ground” by setting up special Relaxation Spaces, complete with soothing music and scented candles. These spaces are often study-free zones, where the relaxation mandate is strictly enforced. They give students a much needed place to unwind and maybe see their professors in a new light, but they can also perform a more important educational function.
Learning how to work hard in a demanding environment is what college is all about, but being able to relax in a healthy manner is also a big part of coping with the real world outside of school
