The last two years have seen an influx of apps aimed at making our lives easier. Whether it’s booking a cab with Uber, or getting laundry done with Laundrapp, tasks have been made ever simpler. Now the Urban Massage app is on a mission to make it easier to de-stress by getting a masseuse to come to you.
Originally released in October 2014, the app has built momentum and is now available for residents in both London and Bristol. After downloading the app for free you can decide when you want the massage, exactly what type you want (ranging from a Sports Massage to something more calming), and even select the therapist.
Their biggest claim is you can book these spa quality massage within just 60 minutes notice. This is what helps to make it stand out from the crowd, as you don’t always know you want a sports massage until you feel something go at the gym.
Who’s to know that tomorrow you’ll have a stressful day and need a calming massage to re-focus? This is supported by their extensive operating hours, offering therapists from 8am to 11.30pm, 7 days a week.
Unsurprisingly the massages aren’t cheap, starting at £65 for 1 hour and increasing to £95 for 2 hours. However, this is inline with what you’d have to pay at your local spa yet it’s far more convenient.
We haven’t tried the service for ourselves yet so can’t comment on how good the massages are, but if you’re in London or Bristol and need to de-stress you can download the Urban Massage app for free on Google Play or the Apple App Store and let us know how you get on.
