Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
London life can get really busy, so it’s important to take advantage of your downtime (when you have it!) and what better way to do it than with a massage? Massages feel great, they can help to decrease pain and muscle aches, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote overall wellness and relaxation. Even a short, 15-minute massage is enough to boost alertness and provide a wave of energy similar to a runner’s high.
However, getting a massage can come with a lot of obstacles—like synchronizing your schedule with a spa’s appointment book, and sessions that come with bells and whistles when you just want some immediate TLC for your back and shoulders. And trying to get a massage last minute, like on a holiday weekend? That might double the stress you’re seeking to remedy.
Enter, Urban Massage, which is an on-demand massage app/website connecting Londoners with Urban Heroes, fully qualified and insured therapists, in just a few clicks, who will come to your home, office or hotel with as little as 60 minutes’ notice.
A few days ago, I checked out Urban Massage for myself and booked a 1-Hour Deep Tissue Massage (£65) with Sam. My massage was wonderful – Sam was friendly and professional, with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation, so knew exactly where the tension in my upper back was and precisely the right amount of pressure to use. Following my massage, the tightness in my shoulders had eased, and I felt a real sense of calm after breathing in the wonderful aromatic oils.
There’s nothing like a good massage to help you unwind from the stresses of city life and Urban Massage is exactly what the doctor ordered.
