Reward, Recharge and Increase Productivity With Corporate Massage

Corporate massage is performed on employees being fully clothed and no massage oils used while recharging team members to increase productivity and focus on decreasing absenteeism with maintenance of health, a corporate health care system. A healthier wellness option to have in the work place than a coffee machine for that three thirty-itis.

It is estimated that 90% of disease is stress related, perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage can help manage stress while eliminating anxiety and pressure. This information translates into decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy, improved concentration, increased circulation and reduced fatigue.

Research shows that massage in the work place increases team members motivation, allowing them to feel valued and respected for their contribution to the company. Their has been significant evidence to show that corporate massage in the work place reduces work cover claims and shows a reduction in stress and tension in the work place by reducing musculoskeletal discomfort and increasing joint range of motion in office workers.Assisting employee’s to be more balanced, focused, mentally and physically, workers report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage.

All it takes is 15 minutes per employee, the employee feels relaxed, reinvigorated and more motivated, Corporate massage is an excellent gift for staff on their birthdays, as a ‘thank you’ or rewards for reaching targets. Does your company/ association hold seminars, conference’s? why not incorporate massage, it keeps staff focused and motivated during a long day of training and seminars. Corporate massage promotes your company’s commitment to its employees.

Massages are performed by qualified, professional practitioners who are committed to professional development and have representation to health funds. Want to spark up your next company event? On-site massage could be the missing ingredient for your next workplace event.

Have you considered massage at company golf tournaments, family picnic day, sporting events and awards ceremonies. Or for product launches or corporate gifts to valuable clients. Add a hidden spark to your next corporate event by providing a refreshing, recharging and revitalising on site massage. Increase the energy and enthusiasm in your office today.

You’ll have everyone smiling at your office with this package for corporate seated massage. Incorporate it into your office on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis to see the benefits to your company.

Vanadium – A Metal Preparing For Launch

Vanadium, a transitional metal found on the periodic table, is becoming much more than just a metal talked about in high school chemistry class. The silvery gray metal has historically been a by-product of mining and oil-drilling production businesses, but due to technological breakthroughs over the last decade, demand for the metal is growing, and the search for Vanadium is on.

The three hottest areas for vanadium use today are production of steel alloys, vanadium redox-batteries, and a new technology called smart glass.

According to Wikipedia.com, 85% of all vanadium produced is used as a steel additive. When mixed into steel, the steel becomes dramatically stronger and more resistant to heat. These attributes are vital in construction. Lets use an example of a steel bridge-by adding a small percentage of vanadium to the steel, the bridge can sustain weights over 1000 tons, rather than falling apart at 250 tons. Secondly, by having a higher resistant to heat, the bridge can remain standing during an explosion. The next time you drive over a strong new bridge, thank vanadium.

Smart glass, also known as smart windows, is an exciting new technology requiring significant amounts of vanadium. Smart glass is a sheet glass which contains electrically-reactive layers in it’s center. By running a charge through the glass, tinting flips on or off. The darkness of the tint resembles tinted vehicle windows. By installing large sheets of smart glass, new commercial buildings eliminate the need for blinds & shades. Additionally, this vanadium coating has been shown to reflect U.V. rays away from the building, while insulating and preserving heat more efficiently than traditional glass. Temperature control savings for commercial buildings are said to be in the 40% annual range.

The third and most promising use of vanadium, is what’s called the vanadium-redox battery. This battery is different from traditional rechargeable batteries: A charged vanadium liquid stores the energy(vanadium metal can be converted to a liquid). The liquid is then stored in two separate tanks(one for positive liquid, one for negative). When the two liquids meet, a chemical reaction occurs, producing electricity. These tanks can be made in any size, to meet any application-a vehicle, a hospital, or even a small town! A widespread adaptation and use of vanadium redox batteries paints a demand picture for vanadium resembling Mt. Everest.

While the demand picture for vanadium is growing, the supply-side is ridden with bottlenecks. According to CPM group, “China, South Africa, and Russia account for roughly 90% of global supplies.” During an interview with this author, James Corrigan of Stina Resources indicates South Africa represents roughly 60% of world production. South Africa, hmm…remember what happened in 2008 during the South African mine blackouts? The electrical grid failed and platinum mining temporarily came to a halt. Platinum prices exploded as industry and investors scrambled to secure their own supplies. It would be naive to think this cant happen again, to any mineral supply coming from South Africa. It is a country many years away from offering(if ever) a developed mining infrastructure.

Now the final question remains: “If vanadium is a hot metal for the future, with such great supply & demand prospects, how can I get my hands on some?”

Well, it’s easier said than done. There are only a handful of quality vanadium deposits in the world, and even fewer investment choices to access these deposits safely. The largest risk today in mining is political. Appropriation and taxes remain the largest threat to wealth buried underground. For this reason, we recommend staying in mining-friendly jurisdictions of the Americas, more specifically, Canada and the U.S.

Vanadium is far more than just a dusty-old metal talked about by chemistry teachers. Today’s growing technological applications are demanding metals of higher endurance, and vanadium is meeting that demand. Steel alloys, smart glass windows, and redox-batteries represent a slice of a rapidly growing pie. Vanadium is preparing for launch.
