Why you shouldn't go to a salon for your next massage

The Vitl Nutrition Team / Apr 25, 2018

We're all about wellbeing from the comfort of your own home so now our friends at Urban Massage are here to explain why your next massage should be too.


When you need a massage, the last thing you want to be doing is squashing onto the tube,  travelling to the opposite side of the city, rocking up at the door of a dubious-looking salon and leaving disappointed.

Because when you want (or need) a massage, it’s always better when it's on your own terms:  at a time and place that suits you, and performed by a qualified, insured therapist. Wellness should be simple, accessible and affordable, and that’s the reason we created Urban  Massage. 

Quality is something that’s hugely important to us, and should be important to you when  you book a massage too. We only partner with the best therapists to ensure that when you want a treatment, you’re going to get something that’s spa-quality.

When therapist Victoria attended Urban Massage’s compulsory on-boarding day, her training and qualifications, insurance and membership to a professional body were checked by us. She also performed a trade test to ensure her skills met Urban Massage’s 5-star quality hallmark. 

If you book massage services in a beauty salon, it’s likely that the therapist will have trained much more broadly and may not be a massage specialist,” - Victoria

“When you book with Urban Massage, you know you’re going to get a fully trained therapist whose references and qualifications are up-to-standard.” She adds.

Having a massage at home also allows you to customise the experience to a tee - you  select the lighting, the music, the candles, and anything else that makes your massage more about you. When it comes to massage, there’s few things worse than having to listen to music chosen by someone else that you don’t enjoy when all you want to do is chill out. 

All therapists use the same organic, cruelty-free oils so that you’ll always get consistency across any treatment you choose, whether you have a massage in London, Manchester, Birmingham or Paris. 

So, the next time you feel a twinge, are suffering through a stressful situation, or just need  some TLC, think of us. When it’s all done and dusted, you’ll be glad you chose to have your massage at home. 

So, you know what to do! Book a massage and relax and unwind. You’re in safe hands.
