4 Major Benefits of Hiring a Mobile Massage Therapist

Temps de lecture : 5 minutes environ

Let’s be honest, everybody loves a good massage.

There’s nothing better than treating yourself to 60, 90, or even 120 minutes of pure relaxation in a zen, stress-free environment. And that ultra-relaxed, post-massage mood can have you feeling on top of the world.

But the stress of traveling to and from the massage clinic, waiting in traffic, and searching endlessly for a parking spot can easily put a damper on your mood and ruin your post-massage good vibes.

This is just one of many reasons that many people are choosing to hire mobile massage therapists over heading to the traditional massage clinic.

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a broad term that encompasses many different techniques and types of massages. In general, massage therapy is defined as the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of your body to promote healing, improve physical function, or help with pain relief. Massage therapists can use varying amounts of pressure and movement (kneading, stroking, or rubbing) according to your personal needs and the massage type.

Massages are typically performed in spas or dedicated clinics by licensed professionals. However, over the years, the concept of hiring mobile massage therapists has been gaining popularity due to their many benefits. Many people are choosing to ditch massage clinics and opt for hiring a mobile massage therapist for a relaxing, spa-quality massage in the comfort of their own homes.

What is a mobile massage therapist?

Before we get into the benefits of mobile massage therapy, we should probably first explain what a mobile massage therapist is. A mobile massage therapist is a licensed masseuse who is available to perform services in a clinic and at the client’s home. A home massage therapist can do everything a massage therapist can do in an office, except in the comfort of your own home!

Your therapist will bring the table, oils, towels, and everything needed to carry out the massage; you just sit back and relax.

Benefits of hiring a mobile massage therapist?

There are many benefits to hiring a mobile massage therapist that simply does not exist when going into an office for a massage.

  • Cost: The cost of hiring an at-home massage therapist is usually the same as going to a massage clinic, sometimes even less. Since there is little to no difference in price, why not experience a salon-quality massage at home?


  • Flexibility: Hiring a mobile massage therapist gives you the flexibility to have a massage anywhere you want! In your home, a hotel, at the office, or an outdoor location like by the beach or at the lake. You have complete control over the time, place, and setting of your massage.


  • Accessibility: At-home massage therapy is also a great option for those who have limited mobility or physical disabilities. Elderly and disabled people are not always able to visit massage clinics to be seen by a massage therapist. In this case, mobile massage therapists are the perfect option to provide access to massage services in the comfort of their own homes. At-home massages are a great option for expecting mothers and new moms as well!


  • Comfortability: Being in your own home gives you the opportunity to choose the ambience, music, temperature- even the scent – to make your massage atmosphere exactly how you want it. A massage is supposed to be a relaxing time, where you can enjoy being stress-free in a calm, peaceful environment and having your needs tended to for an hour or more. After the massage, you are left feeling renewed, refreshed, and at peace- but unfortunately, this feeling may not last very long after you step out of the spa. Maybe you have to get in your car and sit in traffic to get back home, or take the tube and squeeze between tons of people in a smelly, loud, and stressful situation. That amazing, super relaxed “post-massage” mood tends to disappear very quickly. By hiring a home massage therapist, you can avoid that. Since you are already at home where you feel most comfortable, you don’t have to worry about travelling to and from a spa.

Now that you’ve heard all the benefits of hiring a home massage therapist, you’re ready to book your next massage session!
