The most common massage option, treating the upper layer of muscles using a variety of massage techniques to relieve stress and tension. Light pressure is mainly used in this very soothing massage, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Swedish massage is often used as a massage treatment to help to melt away stress, tension and anxiety. When regularly used this, in turn, has a powerful effect on the whole body, so having a swedish massage as often as you can, helps to soothe both body and mind.
This would be a great option if you are new to massage in general, starting with a lovely relaxing massage can help you understand what you seem to benefit most from without the sometimes intense experience of a deep tissue massage.
Swedish massage is very beneficial as a 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage option as well as considering a longer time when you can, which can be used for a luxurious full body massage.
We have a 30-minute option commonly used for back neck and shoulder massage, the area that often carries the most tension and can feel so wonderful when that is gently eased away
A 60-minute massage can be used to treat the full body but is more suited for a full upper body stress tension relief, which includes the back, neck & shoulders, as well as arms and hands, upper chest and head massage.
A 90-minute option is great for a luxurious full body treatment which generally includes back, neck and shoulder, legs and feet, arms and hands, upper chest and head.
All therapists are fully qualified and experienced in relaxing and therapeutic massage techniques to help you relax, unwind and ease those aches and pains.
With our fully accredited and insured therapists, you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality massage treatment in your home, hotel or Airbnb.
Massage at home is wonderful as it means there is no rushing to get to your appointment and you are able to enjoy already being in your own space after your massage treatment.
Your therapist will bring everything they need to provide a professional treatment at home, fresh towels and things like music, heated blanket & aromatherapy they may bring to help create a spa-like feel, they may also make more suggestions to help your space be more suitable like drawing the curtains a little etc. You are also perfectly welcome to tell your therapist if you have some specific things you like and have ready like music/lighting etc.
Your therapist will do a thorough consultation before starting to discuss with you any particular area’s of tension and how you are feeling to then be able to prepare a tailor-made treatment for you.
To prepare for your massage you may want to think about having a room ready that is warm and comfortable and has enough space for a massage bed, this would help but is not necessary as your massage therapist can make suggestions for where would be suitable. If you have time beforehand you could consider a warm bath to help your muscles start to relax and get more out of your massage treatment.
Once your treatment has come to an end, your therapist will allow you to rise gradually, dress, and have a seat while everything gets packed away and then leaves you relaxing and gaining the added benefits of not having to go anywhere afterwards.
Aftercare for massage is important. To get the maximum benefits of massage it is best to rest afterwards, drink plenty of water, avoid tea, coffee and alcohol and strenuous exercise.
How should I prepare for my home massage?
To get the most from your massage treatment we recommend using somewhere private and warm with enough room to fit a massage bed 6ft by 2ft, your therapist will provide everything that is required for this treatment. If time allows you could consider having a hot shower or bath to start the relaxing process. If you want to use your own scented candles/music/oil, please let your therapist know.
Can I book a specific massage therapist?
Yes, of course. When you choose the massage treatment you would like to book, you are able to view profiles and reviews of all the massage therapists able to offer this service, and select your preferred therapist.
I’m pregnant, can I book a pregnancy massage?
Yes, of course. We can offer prenatal massage anytime after 12 weeks pregnant and as long as you have no health concerns.
How often should I have a massage?
Depending on your lifestyle and individual needs, your massage therapist will be able to advise you on this after doing a consultation and massage treatment. A massage fortnightly or monthly is generally recommended to help maintain a healthy lifestyle but equally, you will feel the benefit of having a massage whenever you can. We would recommend a massage during periods of stress, after increased exercise or physical exertion, or just the times when life feels a bit more challenging.
What will happen during a massage booking?
A full consultation will be done before your massage and you will have a general chat to discuss areas to tailor your treatment including, the pressure you like; if you like to chat or have complete silence; and any particular areas of injury or muscle tension that should be given more attention. Your mobile massage therapist will leave the room to allow you to undress, down to a level that you are comfortable with, and get under the towel on the bed. Your therapist will then start your massage treatment and help you turn over under the towel as necessary. They will then let you know when the treatment is finished and you will then be given a few minutes on your own to rise slowly and dress. Your therapist then packs up and leaves you relaxing in comfort.
When should I have a massage?
Massage can be booked to have when you have some free time in your busy schedule or on a day you plan to relax. Book a last-minute massage treatment to have at the end of an unexpected challenging day or opt for a morning energising option to get you going. Massage can be tailor-made to suit you so please let your massage therapist know what you would like from your treatment in your consultation.
