Surbiton is a popular residential town situated located in the south-west of London, just 15 minutes train journey from Waterloo. Even though it is on the border of Surrey, the fast direct rail service to central London means mobile massage therapists are usually able to reach Surbiton station in as little as one hour.

Spanning the KT5 and KT6 postcode districts, Surbiton is within the Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. Although smaller than nearby shopping destination Kingston, as a prime residential area Surbiton has a higher number of requests for home visit massage therapy.
Each summer, Surbiton Racquet & Fitness club in Berrylands hosts the long established Fuzion 100 Surbiton Trophy. This popular grass court tennis tournament has seen some of the world’s best tennis stars participate, including the likes of Roger Federer.

The most popular hotel in the area, Hotel Bosco, is just a few minutes walk from the station and therefore very easy for therapists to reach. So, there is not need to be anxious if you end up suffering from tennis elbow, there are many high quality massage specialists operating in Surbiton.
In the 1970s, Surbiton was somewhat surprisingly cast as the location for a popular sitcom called The Good Life. Depicting a middle-aged couple keen to escape an increasingly commercialised world they had moved to Surbiton to grow their own vegetables and rear livestock. Anyone watching a few episodes might mistakenly think that something as contemporary as on-demand mobile massage would never be available here, but they would be wrong. The reality is that there are no tractors to be seen anywhere whilst plenty of visiting massage therapists are less than 60 minutes away.
Most mobile massage bookings for Surbiton are for homes in the St. Mark’s and Surbiton Hill area. Surbitonians book massages less frequently than central Londoners but when they do book they appear to reserve the whole evening for relaxation therapy, booking for durations of 90 or 120 minutes. As well as the ever popular classic Swedish and deep tissue massages, people in Surbiton appear a little more adventurous than average, regularly selecting the exotic massage techniques such as Lomi Lomi and Thai massage.
Surbiton is located on the outskirts of Greater London in Zone 6 with excellent rail connections to Central London. Mobile massage therapists based in London can reach Surbiton’s mainline station quickly and easily. If you live centrally, a professional therapist could be performing a therapeutic massage on you in the comfort of your own home in as little as an hour after you book. For those who live further away, such as in the Alexandra or Berrylands areas, it is a good idea to allow a little more time for a masseuse to reach your house. There is a small travel supplement for Surbiton home visit appointments and this is clearly shown at the point of checkout.
Almost all of the mobile massage treatments booked in this area are for home rather than hotel visits. Most of the homes near the town centre are converted flats in Victorian period buildings. Boasting beautiful architecture with high ceilings and located just a few minutes from the station and riverside, these apartments are highly popular with millennials. One drawback is these apartments often do not have lifts installed. However, if you choose a professional mobile massage therapist who has been specially trained to perform treatments on a normal bed or the floor then this causes no concern. If the therapist does not have to carry a cumbersome massage table, they can travel to you, set up and tidy up afterwards all more easily. Most importantly, masseuses trained in this method arrive with better energy to perform a therapeutic real massage.
