The Atlanta Business Chronicle, October 25-1999
Imagine that after a grueling day of meeting deadlines, organizing records or attending corporate board meetings, you get a treat: Your boss springs for a massage for your entire department.
Northside Hospital apparently realizes the stress its doctors are under between delivering babies, patching up wounds, performing major surgery and dealing with HMOs. The hospital recently signed an agreement with Stress Recess of Atlanta to provide massages to Northside’s 3,500 employees.
Called “corporate massages,” the rubdowns take place while the fully clothed massagee sits on a special chair. Stress Recess expects to perform about 500 massages a month at the hospital.
Northside is not the only employer in town providing this perk. Stress Recess counts among its clients the employees of The Coca-Cola Co., Delta Air Lines Inc., Cox Enterprises Inc., and BellSouth Corp.
