Review: Urban Massage (Massage in your own home)


Post by Taislany Gomes • November 14, 2016 • Lifestyle, Travel

Small luxuries, make life so much easier. As you guys know I work from home and I need to admit that I have not planned many activities outside the house and when I do, I tend do reschedule until I have to cancel. This does not apply to blog events and meetings as I take my blog very serious but when it comes to e.g. hair and nails appointment I tend to feel lazy and end up not making to the saloon.

Knowing myself so well, I knew that if I ever booked a massage at a Spa I would never make it! You don’t believe me right? Well, here is a SAD (in capital letters because it still hurts) fact: I paid £150 for 6 weeks of Bootcamp and guess what? I didn’t go, believe me now? I thought so!

Not a proud moment but who hasn’t done something similar? I’m sure you have bought something ridiculously expensive and only used it once or twice and you know what, it’s totally fine, as long as you don’t keep doing it. If you do, make sure to do sell it on Ebay – it’s surprisingly effective but that’s a topic for a different post.

I really wanted to get a massage without having to leave the house and had seen Urban Massage ads on the tube and always wanted to try it out but never got around to booking. Not until I started blogging full-time and was dealing with too many things at the same time, and was under a fair bit of pressure with projects, so booking a massage sounded like an excellent idea.urban massageThe booking process is really straight forward, it takes around 2-3 minutes. I chose the Calming Massage as it would de-stress and make me achieve a sense of peace and harmony which I desperately needed. I booked it for a Sunday morning, 11am to be precise. screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-12-59-28

At exactly 11am, the doorbell rang. It was Andra, my masseuse for the day. She was so little but surprisingly strong and efficient when lugging her mobile massage bed. She asked me for 3 towels – 2 large and 1 small so, I went to get them and allowed a few minutes for her to set up her “station”.

Andra used a Lavendin essential oil which smelled really nice and refreshing. The calming massage uses a combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Acupressure and Reflexology techniques.

Andra used cross-fiber friction and… OMG, she broke up every muscle knots that I may have had. The massage was deeply relaxing and therapeutic and I couldn’t have asked for a better masseur. I had my Playlist on while having the massage and Andra approved every single track. We also bonded over her little dog and other girly stuff.massageOverall, it was an amazing experience and felt like I was floating afterwards. The 60-minute treatment costs £65, which in my opinion is pretty good value, as they come to you at the comfort of your house. The best thing? After my Urban Massage, I went straight into my bed and watched my favourite series: Mr Selfridge.
