A relatively undiscovered part of London until 2012, Stratford achieved international fame when London hosted the Summer Olympics that year. Sports massages in Stratford were as regular as buses for several weeks! The area has enjoyed a long period of investment and regeneration since 2010 and today is home to one of Europe’s largest shopping centres as well as the grand Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Visiting either means lots of walking – and tired feet – so it is no surprise that one of the most common outcall treatments for this area is foot reflexology at home.
Stratford is unique in that it sits at the junction of four different London boroughs. Primarily in Newham but also dipping its sporting toe into Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest, means that the area is bustling with activity from not only the sporting and leisure world but also in commerce and tourism.
In-room sports massage bookings at local hotels see a huge surge in popularity around the time when international events are hosted at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. On a more regular basis, shoppers who have spent the day swiping their credit card at the many outlets in the Westfield Shopping centre, return back home and decide to treat themselves to one of the most relaxing mobile massages without having to venture out again.
Whether you are thinking of visiting Stratford for a sporting event or just a day of indulgent shopping, staying overnight in a hotel can make the whole experience a lot less stressful. It is worth noting that although the area has many hotels to book, most of them are budget or mid-range hotels. If you are after luxury five-star treatments then you may prefer to stay a little further west, somewhere like Liverpool Street which has very quick transport connections to Stratford's Westfield Shopping Centre. Whichever hotel you decide to stay at, make sure you give yourself a bit more money to spend on your shopping trip by avoiding expensive hotel spa massages and instead use your phone or computer to book a visiting massage to come directly to your hotel room.
With the excellent Central and Jubilee line transport links to the area, it is easy to book a home visit treatment and request a professional massage therapist to be with you in less than 1 hour. There are no travel supplements charged for travelling to Stratford or its nearby areas and if you are close to one of the underground stations then many mobile massage therapists should be able to get to you in even less than 60 minutes.
Newham and Waltham Forest are very popular areas to live for outcall massage therapists, which means there is lots of variety in terms of the type of massage treatment and therapist personality you can choose to visit you. Some of London's most popular masseuses, like Eva, spend much of their days visiting clients in and around Stratford.
Like many of London's other residential areas, pregnant and new mothers also regularly enjoy the benefits of being able to stay at home and get a pregnancy massage or some post-natal recovery therapy delivered.
