Creating Healthy Organizations

Kalya provides onsite Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine for businesses in northern and central California.

Stress At The Workplace

At Kalya, we understand that when our vital energy (Chi) does not flow properly our health is compromised. We also understand that in today’s society, stress is the leading cause of obstructing the normal flow of Chi.

 

More than ever before, employee stress is being recognized as a major drain on corporate productivity. At the same time, recent studies show that 90% of all illness and disease is related to stress.

 

Our goal is to help your employees maintain a healthy flow of Chi, which in turn, will not only dramatically decrease their stress level and improve most existing conditions, but it will also significantly increase employees productivity by reducing sick-days, employee turnover, and improving their morale and overall health condition.

 

By bringing the best of alternative and complementary medicine to your office, your employees benefit from the convenience of having onsite healthcare, while your company benefits from having healthier, more relaxed and more productive employees.

Our Workplace Today

​​Studies from organizations such as National Institutes for Occupational Safety and Health and the American Psychological Association show the following changes in working conditions have overburdened our traditional coping mechanisms:

 

  • Growing psychological demands as we increase productivity demands and work longer hours

  • The need to gather and apply growing amounts of information

  • Job insecurity

  • The need for both men and women to balance obligations between work and family as women enter the workforce worldwide.

• Stress is linked to physical and mental health, as well as decreased willingness to take on new and creative endeavors.

 

• Job burnout experienced by 25% to 40% of U.S. workers is blamed on stress.

 

• More than ever before, employee stress is being recognized as a major drain on corporate productivity and competitiveness.

 

• Depression, only one type of stress reaction, is predicted to be the leading occupational disease of the 21st century, responsible for more days lost than any other single factor.

 

• $300 billion, or $7,500 per employee, is spent annually in the U.S. on stress-related compensation claims, reduced productivity, absenteeism, health insurance costs, direct medical expenses (nearly 50% higher for workers who report stress), and employee turnover.
