Worn out parents fancy a massage at home? Urban Massage to the rescue!

You know that feeling when you’re on the floor – you’re bruised, you’re battered, you’re beaten by the never ending hamster wheel which is parenthood, work and life, and you can’t remember the last time you and your significant other had some quality time?

Yes that. So when you’re feeling like that, what could be better than getting a massage delivered to you? Quite simply, a massage in your home, that’s what.

And so in my frazzled state, I was overjoyed to road test Urban Massage’s at-home professional massage service, for some much needed R&R. It promised to be as easy as entering my postcode, selecting the date and time, the type of massage I’d like and the therapists we wanted (of course, the ones with the highest ratings!) and ta-dah! Booking it. Now the hard part was waiting for Friday afternoon to roll around to be in sweet massage heaven.

But you know what they say, all good things are worth waiting for…particularly massage heaven, right?

Knock knock, who is it? Oh it’s our two lovely massage therapists Daxa and Natasha, here to take us away to the land of bliss. Within a matter of minutes, they busied away at transforming our kitchen into massage central, setting up our beds and creating a mood with music before they unleashed their heavenly hands on to our battered bodies in the form of an Urban Classic massage.

Quite honestly within 5 minutes I had forgotten that I was in my kitchen in a leafy suburb of West London and could have been on a beach in Bali I was so relaxed.

One of the most masterly massages I’ve had in a long time? Hands down. Extra points for not having to leave the house or look a member of the public in the eye in my pursuit for massage happiness? Most definitely. Dribbling all over the massage bed in a state of divine unadulterated relaxation? You bet! Happy as hell that this was an experience that both mummy and daddy could share together? 110 percent.

As far as rebooting your tired selves once the kids are in bed without having to leave the four walls of your house, I’m not really sure that there is another experience to rival this. I’m renaming date night Urban Massage night and think you should too!

The Urban Massage Classic costs £65 for 60 minutes per person. To book your massage at home with Urban Massage visit http://www.urbanmassage.com using the code  MOTHERHOOD10 to get £10 off your massage until 31st December 2016.

  1. I used to have these home massages many moons ago. Would love to have one now, I clicked on them though couldn’t find one in our postcode 🙁 Love the idea of a home massage!

  2. I’m one of those weird people who hates having massages, but this sounds like a great experience for everyone else! Always good when you can get services to your house & not go out! (Lucy/R is for Hoppit)

  3. ah what a treat… this looks amazing.. i got a massage for my bump when i was pregnant and it was an awesome experience.. the bump was kicking like mad

  4. I’m sitting here with knotted shoulders and the tension headache from hell. I’ll be popping my postcode with fingers crossed in a few moments. How fabulous. #coolmumclub

  5. This is a very good idea. I’m a massage therapist myself, but I’m written in clients’ contacts as: torturer, because I do pretty brutal sports massage! Your massage sounds lovely and it is so convenient when they come to the house. Thank you for sharing. Alison x #coolmumclub

  6. I’m dribbling at just the thought of it!? An actual massage? Without having to secure a babysitter and everything? Genius idea! #coolmumclub

  7. Oooh I SO need a massage right about now! The combination of being back at work (hunched over a desk all day) and toddler wearing is doing me in. I would love to have someone give me a massage at home – as long as my daughter was somewhere else so she wouldn’t interrupt! #coolmumclub

  8. Oh my gosh, I need one of these massages in my life! A massage therapist that comes out to you, amazing. Definitely a service that I’d love to try out 😉 Emily #coolmumclub

  9. This sounds like absolute bliss. You simply cannot beat a good old massage and the fact you didn’t have to leave the house (which is code for get dressed and actually be around people) in a bonus! Made me relaxed just reading it! #coolmumclub

  10. I have trained the girls to give me. Massage… Probably closest I’ll get for a while!
    Looks heaven… You get the best stuff to review! I must try harder 😉
    #coolmumclub… Have a fantastic break honey!!

  11. This type of service sounds amazing! It’s too bad we don’e have home massage services in my part of the US. My wife could really benefit from this!

  12. Love Urban Massage! I found out about them when I was in London last year (I live in Sydney). They make it so easy to find and book a good therapist. Definitely recommend if you haven’t used it already.
