The advantages of a home massage

I’d be the first to admit that a relaxing massage in luxurious surroundings is the nec plus ultra of pampering, but the problem is, many beauty institutes don’t have that special atmosphere.

I’ve been to a few which are too bright, too white (think clinical), where every sound resonates (the clic-clac of the beautician’s shoes, and the voice of next-door’s client like she was in the room with me).

And the problem, of course, with even the best pamper session is that inevitably you have to get back in your car (or worse, on the bus) to make your way home – unless you’re lucky enough to live next door to your massage therapist’s salon.

All the more reason to give Mobile Massage Therapy a go.

So what are the plus sides of a home massage?

Well, there are several:

First and foremost, there’s no need for you to move from the comfort of your own home.

Just pick up the phone and your massage is booked.

No running about trying to get the kids looked after.

No time lost in travelling to and from your appointment (a major problem if you live in a big city or have to commute).

No traffic jams.

home massage = no traffic jams

home massage = no traffic jams

No worrying about being late.

No parking nightmares.

All necessary material brought to your doorstep on time, every time – massage table, oils, clean linen.

And a final, but very important, point is that after your oh-so-relaxing massage session, when you feel like you’re drifting off, you really don’t want to move, you want to stay in this relaxed state forever…you CAN.

After taking all the time you need to come round, you can just roll off the massage table onto your own bed or sofa, wrapped up in your dressing gown or favourite PJs and not move for the rest of the afternoon/evening.

Your mind and body will love you for it.

Now that’s got to be the ultimate in self-indulgence.

June massage offer

Discover the benefits of a Swedish massage this month with our June offer.

Swedish massage was developed, not surprisingly, by a Swede, Per Henrik Ling.

It stimulates the body’s circulation and so helps cleanse and nourish soft tissues by bringing more oxygen and nutrients to cells. It relaxes tense muscles and improves muscle tone. It stimulates the body’s system to greater efficiency.

Great for relaxation, improving sleep patterns and the relief of muscular tension.

Treatment begins with effleurage, followed by kneading, friction, vibrations and percussion techniques.

So set aside an hour this month to have your muscles soothed in our expert hands, and at a discount too!

40€ instead of 50€ for a one-hour Swedish massage.

Valid up to and including 30th June 2018.

Offer does not apply to gift vouchers.

Just call 06.47.14.06.03 for an appointment.

Just Massage offers home massage in and around the Mérignac and Pessac area (near Bordeaux, France).

Perfect pampering with a home massage

 

Face massage tools – high tech vs manual?

I came across this article from Elle magazine online, vaunting the merits of some very high-tech face massage devices (some of which are exorbitantly priced! The one below comes in at £425).

Cult Beauty - £425 This may look a bit like a UFO, but it's the closest thing to a professional face lift without having to go under the needle or knife. The tiny device - which links up with your iPhone - uses nano-currents and vibrations to supercharge slack skin cells with energy, prompting them to tighten up. Much like laser treatments, it works alongside a 'conductor gel' which helps it glide across the skin, and you can use it everywhere, from your cheeks to your forehead and even your upper lip and under eyes. Ge-ni-us. 

Really, I thought? Not a tad gimmicky?

I admit I have a wooden face roller that resembles N° 8 in Elle‘s list, only it was a free gift, so far from the £39.99 price tag on Amazon. I used it enthusiastically for about a week or so, then went back to my usual manual massage routine when I apply my face cream morning or night.

So, does anyone have one of these massage tools? And can they really do better than your own fingers?

I’m not convinced…

And let’s face it (excuse the pun!), having a professional do the work for you is all part and parcel of the relaxation process – that’s what pampering is all about.

Here at a Just Massage we have a popular facial massage which incorporates the neck, shoulders and scalp (as tension in those areas affects tension in your face). You’ll come away with a fresher-looking complexion and some advice for continuing the massage at home (it’s the regularity that gets results, just like in sport!)

Why not give it a try – personally I think manual beats mechanical every time, if only for the sensual aspect of touch combined with oils.

Let me know what you think.
