Yes you can. You can read individual therapist profiles by clicking the small i under the therapist's photo during the booking process and then selecting your favourite.

It’s usually best to close your eyes, lie back and relax during your massage. But, it’s up to you. Do speak up immediately if you feel uncomfortable in any way. Massage therapists are trained to listen and adapt their treatments to the best needs of each client.

Tipping is totally up to you. The only pressure our therapists want you to feel is the deeply relaxing one you'll get from one of their massages. 

Simply head over to the booking system, enter your postcode and you will be able to book a massage in 60 seconds.

There are many different types of massage from a simply soothing relaxation massage to deep tissue remedial sports therapy. You can read about the most popular treatment types by clicking here.

For mobile massage therapy, the most popular duration for a full body massage is 90 minutes. Determining the best duration for a massage depends on your own personal preferences.

For the most popular oil based massages you should undress to your own level of comfort and cover yourself with a large towel. Find out more about what to wear during your massage by clicking here.

It is completely normal to prefer some parts of your body to be massaged more than others. During the booking process, you can choose which body parts you want your massage to focus on by simply clicking the matching parts of the body on the Focus Man. Leave out any parts that you prefer your therapist not to touch. You can also add a comment in booking comments box.

A full body massage can offer many health benefits, from stress reduction to improved blood circulation and release of tension in muscles.

It is a good idea to take a warm shower a short while before your massage therapist arrives. This will both cleanse and warm your body, as well as shift your mind to a slightly more relaxed state, preparing you for the treatment.

The benefits of massage therapy are cumulative over time. So getting a massage on a regular basis is more important than how often. If you are able to get a massage at least once week that is ideal. We recommend that you do not get more than three intensive deep tissue massages a week.

It is best to avoid eating or drinking immediately before your massage session so that your stomach does not feel bloated or full. Drink plenty of water after your massage therapy.

Massage therapy is a very safe and comforting therapy for the vast majority of people, even if you have not been feeling your best. It is however important that you consider your personal circumstances and check if it might not be safe for you to receive a massage. Please provide details within the comments box during checkout if any of the following apply:

1. Do you suffer any allergies?

2. Have you undergone any recent surgery?

3. Have you taken any drugs or alcohol in the last 24 hours?

4. Do you have any medical conditions or injuries that might affect your massage?

If you are unsure about anything always check with your doctor in advance of booking.

Massage is safe after you have passed your initial trimester of pregnancy. To avoid pressure on your abdomen, you will lie on your side and back or sit on a chair during your pregnancy massage. You should not get a massage during your first 3 months of pregnancy unless you have written approval from your doctor. Be sure to select Pregnancy in the Style drop down menu during the booking process and the system will automatically only offer therapists who are qualified in Pregnancy Massage.

Yes you can. The best value option for a couples spa day at home is to book one therapist for 2 hours and then split this time between the two of you, so you get 1 hour each, back to back. 

There are no known serious side affects from getting a good quality massage. You may feel a little lightheaded and emotional or experience some soreness in your muscles the day after getting a massage. These are natural reactions to being massaged well and usually nothing to worry about.

We understand that unexpected changes happen. When you book a mobile massage therapist, their diary is blocked out just for you (including 2 hours of travel time to and back from you). Therefore please give much notice as possible by texting your therapist directly if you need to cancel and also emailing us.

In the interests of best hygiene we ask our customers to provide one or two large clean towels for their treatment. Would you really want to use a towel provided by your mobile therapist, from a bag stuffed full with others?
