Massage the stress away with the Massage Company

Imagine having a masseuse on tap. Well, not quite on your doorstep, but the next best thing! I’ve decided that massages should be given much more time on my agenda than the occasional hotel spa visit, and was delighted to find out that the newly launched Massage Company has centres throughout the UK and you can book in for a qualified masseuse seven days a week.

Deciding to pay more attention to my mental health since the pandemic, I am embracing the power of massage, which the Hindus, Persians, Egyptians and Chinese cooked up over 3000 years ago. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching and massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes and immunity suppression.

I don’t have any particular ailments to address, and was committed to taking some ‘me time’ so booked in for a relaxing massage in the Putney branch. Based on the first floor of the shopping centre, the location was superb, and the friendly staff were professional and welcoming. I was advised to arrive about ten minutes early so I could do the iPad paperwork, which is a straightforward questionnaire of ailments and concerns, and the Manager was on hand for any queries.

I was booked in for a fifty minute massage (50 or 80 minutes are available) and I was able to specify what I liked. In fact, my favourite way to relax is with a head and foot rub, and that is what I got! My friendly therapist asked what pressure I preferred and was happy to divert from the menu of full body relaxation massage to accommodate my wishes- however she didn’t tell me that the foot massage would involve a vibrating electronic device, which, after the initial surprise, was rather pleasant! So relaxing in fact, that I got woken by the gentle chime of the alarm to signify the end of the session.

With an easy to use website, gift vouchers and centres across the south in Putney, Camberley, Tunbridge Wells, High Wycombe and Sutton Coldfield, I can definitely see a massage- habit forming! I may even try the hot stones next time.
