There is a common myth that we only use, or can access, 20% of our brain (some say 10%, others say 13%). Yes, a myth.
We actually use all parts of our brain as most of our brain is active at all times. Brain activity happens without us actually having to do anything. Like breathing. It just happens.
Our brain works a bit like a computer hard drive. Everything we have seen, heard or done, is stored away in neat little files that we don’t access at all times. I am imagining color/date-coordinated labels here, a bit like in Stephen Kings ‘Dream Catcher’ where the character Jonesy has a secret ‘room’ in his brain with organized ‘memory’ files, where he can hide the information the alien possessing his body wants access to. But I’m digressing.
Here is a case-study of a typical query, and how we helped this company achieve result with looking after their hard-working staff.
About the company: VizExplorer is a software company that makes 'super graphics', with software makes life easier, more productive and profitable for virtually any business. VizExplorer is led by a team of renowned business intelligence experts and world-class software developers devoted to building the very best products.
The problem: The initial inquiry came via email: “We have 10-15 staff here that are mostly computer programmers, and are working long hours in front of their computers. I am thinking it would be nice to look at rewarding them with corporate massage. Would this be possible? I appreciate any info you can give.”
The solution: Bodyworkz set up a trial date for the next week, with a therapist going into the office to give 15-minute on-site massages to each of the staff. 10 people were interested, and the trial was successful.
I am biased when it comes to massage, I am the first one to admit that. I have been doing/giving massages professionally since 2003 after all, and have been having regular massages myself ever since. Now I can’t do without them, and know that they are an integral part of my life.
Naturally then, I think everyone else should have them as well.
And I am not just talking about a nice relaxing hour-long therapeutic massage session here, I mean:
Bring the massage to the people, to their workplace!
