Details & Time Frame
Mainstreaming Alternative Therapies to Assist with Smoking Cessation and Corporate Wellness
As companies continue to search for affordable and alternative methods to enhance wellness programs, tools like aromatherapy are entering the workplace wellness market. Having a base understanding of these concepts can empower HR professionals to make correct decisions and avoid some obvious pitfalls. Including the use of evidence based research when implementing these types of tools is essential.
Basic evidence exists and is currently showing some results or being studied further for the use of tools like aromatherapy (essential oils), Reiki, Music and massage in wellness Care Plans to include:
- Relaxation
- Fatigue
- Sleep Issues
- Depression
- Pain
- Smoking Cessation Assistance (Black Pepper)
- Stress management
Because essential oils and other methods listed above are an affordable alternative and can be easily administered without adverse effects, group programs, and individual care plans can be designed within a corporate environment.
Smoking Cessation programs are the subject of debate for many professionals. While almost all companies agree that smoking impacts healthcare costs, productivity and time, finding the right way to provide smoking cessation programs can be difficult and worrisome. Alternative therapies – when supported by evidence are often an appreciated alternative to RX programs and “stick” approach procedures.
Employees often recognize and understand that their own behaviors do impact their health and productivity in the workplace, however providing new choices and solutions must be done in a way that employees want to embrace the solutions and implement the changes. Education provided in a threatening “either change or…” manner almost always backfires.

What you will learn:
- Evidence Regarding the Use of alternative therapies for key corporate issues: stress and productivity
- how to implement these programs in a corporate setting
- how to avoid pitfalls
- using these programs to ramp up and renew existing wellness initiatives.
