The impact of Uber is being felt far further than the taxi industry, as I’m learning of an increasing number of apps which are the ‘uber’ of their sector. The latest such industry to be given the Uber treatment is massage.
Urban Massage allows you to order a massage to your home, hotel or office, with as little as an hours notice. Massages are available between the hours of 8am and 11.30pm, 7 days a week, and all therapists are qualified, insured and referenced.
A great idea, bringing the massage to you means that after your relaxing treatment you don’t have to deal with a commute or the chance of encountering the horrid british weather. An evening massage in your own home can be followed by getting into your pyjamas and snuggling down for the evening.
I was treated to a free one hour treatment, which is priced at £65, and found my therapist to be friendly and professional. The therapists provide their own massage table, as well as oils and in my case background music which helped with the mood. The only thing you need to provide is a couple of towels.
There’s a variety of treatments to choose from, including sports, deep tissue and energising and they last from one hour up to two. You can specify your prefered gender of therapists as well.
