Mobile massage services are provided by some therapists for clients who are either unable to attend a massage clinic or find it more convenient to have a treatment at their own home. Elderly or convalescing people could find this to be a very useful option, as would the parents of young children who do not have child care. Services are also offered at some hotels for business people and visitors and this can be arranged through the hotel’s concierge.
Practitioners should be fully qualified in remedial massage and may have additional skills, often offering aromatherapy, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage or pregnancy massage. Other massage modalities are sometimes available, depending upon the particular therapist providing the service.
Mobile massage therapists will generally supply their own massage table, oils, and towels and will advise beforehand of any other requirements, such as a warm room. Clients will be requested to be appropriately attired, in accordance with the style of therapy that is being supplied.
The benefits attributed to this type of massage depends upon the style of massage offered. In all cases, stress relief and relaxation will be a major focus.
