Rob Waterson - Traditional Swedish Massage, Bath profile image

Rob Waterson - Traditional Swedish Massage, Bath

Bath & NE Somerset

‘21 Certificate of Excellence

Independent mobile (mostly...) male massage therapist (that's 'masseur' for the non snowflake un PC traditionalist) with reasonable rates. I qualified in the early to mid ‘90s and have been massaging on and off since. Trained in both classic Swedish Massage and Aromatherapy. Trends come and go, but still the current 'in vogue' styles stem from the Swedish technique which in turn has evolved from techniques dating back millennia from the ancient civilisations. I endeavor to exchange regularly with fellow therapists to maintain and develop my skill sets. My style can be either relaxing or invigorating, deep or not-so-deep, structured or free-form. I blend various traditional moves such as effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, along with some Lomi Lomi and Thai type techniques that I've picked up as I've gone along thrown in for good measure. I have been told on several occasions my hands give off a particularly concentrated heat, which is fascinating. I don't necessarily notice this myself, but that's generally the feedback I receive. Also, I’ve been informed my massage is world-class... which is a lovely compliment. My core training is in Swedish Massage, but with my style being an eclectic blend of other styles so no two massages are identical, which I think is nice. I have an informal parred down, basic no-frills, no starched uniform or tunic (more like Tee Shirt and joggers or shorts), no pseudoscience BS approach. I’m not a salon, just me, table or chair, warmed towels and oils, and a bloody good massage....and I make a great cuppa. I'm Bath-based and mainly offer a mobile service, either in your home, hotel, B&B, or office. I offer a choice of: Massage table or massage chair; Coconut Oil, Grapeseed, Massage Wax. Essential Oils and Thai balms. Aloe Vera if you prefer a water-based lotion. I cover a 50 mile / 1 hr's drive from my location. Why book a mobile massage? You're at home and in your own space. You won't have the hassle of driving, parking, walking to and from the salon, driving home...undoing a great chunk of the work you went to have done in the first place. Further details upon request, please feel free to ask any questions or discuss your requirements. Just a few more things, kind of throwing it out there... 1 - I DO NOT OFFER SPORTS MASSAGE. It is not a modality I have studied. Just my opinion but I think if you want a Sports Massage then book a Sports Physio. 2 - I DO NOT OFFER HOT STONE MASSAGE. 3 - What I DO offer is, hopefully, the best massage you've never had, tailored just for you. 4 - For mobile please supply your own towels and draping. 5 - Please don't ask me to contact you if you have no intention of responding. It wastes my time and I appreciate the mutual respect and common courtesy of a reply. 6 - Deep tissue can sometimes have delayed soreness for a few days afterward. This is quite normal. 7 - I never promise to deliver miracles but I do promise to deliver my best. Please note that some massages go well, some don't always go so well. There are no guarantees and you come to me at entirely your own risk. Please note that services are subject to COVID-19 guidelines. Discount available for Service personnel (Armed Forces and Emergency services), NHS, NUS / Students and fellow trained therapists. Please provide your ID as proof when booking.

a professional

What do you love most about your job?

Meeting people and helping them feel good about themselves.
No two massages are the same, and clients who book me regularly appreciate my blend of a structured routine blended with intuition.
I've worked on a customer with fybromyalgia for example, who returns on a fairly regular basis.
It's also nice to hear people's stories, what makes them tick as human beings.

What inspired you to start your own business?

To be more in charge of my own destiny. Being polymathic, massage is another string to an eclectic bow.
I'm a tactile person and I love massage.

Why should our clients choose you?

Why book a mobile massage? You're at home and in your own space. You won't have the hassle of driving, parking, walking to and from the salon, driving home...undoing a great chunk of the work you went to have done in the first place.

I'm reliably informed I'm extremely good, very experienced, approachable, personable and will tailor to best suit your requirements.
As a professional point of note it does costs Bark Credits to respond to requests, and your replies are always appreciated and welcome...even if it's a polite decline I do appreciate the courtesy.

Don't be shy....give me a try. X

Massage Therapy FAQs

Prices depend on the duration, location, the type of massage and any additional services such as aromatherapy.

Your expert Massage Therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to help you select the best massage for your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a masseuse today.

Swedish massage - This is a gentle type of full body massage that is ideal for people who have a lot of tension, are sensitive touch and are new to massage. It can help to release muscle knots and is a good choice if you want to fully relax during your treatment.

Hot stone massage - Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax. The massage therapist uses heated stones in lieu of or in addition to their hands.

Aromatherapy massage - Aromatherapy massages are best for people who want to have an emotional healing component to their massage. Aromatherapy massages combine soft, gentle pressure with the use of essential oils. Essential oils are diluted before being applied to the skin.

Deep tissue massage - Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage. It is a good option if you have chronic muscle problems such as soreness, injury or imbalance.

Sports massage - Sports massage is a good option if you have a repetitive use injury to a muscle such as what you may get from playing a sport. It’s also a good option if you are prone to injuries because it can be used to help prevent sports injuries.

Trigger point massage - Trigger point massages are best suited for people who have injuries, chronic pain, a specific issue or condition. Sometimes areas of tightness in the muscle tissues, known as trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. By focusing on relieving trigger points, this type of massage can reduce pain.

Reflexology - Reflexology is a great option for people who are looking to relax or restore their natural energy levels. It is also a good option if you aren’t comfortable being touched on your entire body. Reflexology uses gentle to firm pressure on different pressure points of feet, hands or ears.

Shiatsu massage - Shiatsu massage is best for people who want to feel relaxed and relieve stress, pain and tension.

Thai massage - Thai massage is best for people who want a more active form of massage and want to reduce and relieve pain and stress.

Prenatal massage - Prenatal massage can be a safe way for women to get a massage during pregnancy. It can help reduce pregnancy body aches, reduce stress and ease muscle tension.

Couple’s massage - A couple’s massage is a massage that you do with your partner, friend or family member in the same room. Other treatments such as pedicures, facials, and body scrubs are sometimes offered as part of a package.

Chair massage - A chair massage is best for people who want a quick massage that focuses on your neck, shoulders and back. A chair massage can also be a way to introduce you to massage if you have never had one before. This type of massage uses light to medium pressure.

There are a number of factors that are worth considering before choosing your masseuse.

  • Choice – It is important to consider why you want a massage. Do you want to find relief from chronic pain or are you just looking for a way to relax? Deciding why you want to get a massage will help you narrow down your options and find the right massage therapist.

  • Comfort- Getting a massage is a great way to relax both physically and mentally. It is easier to take advantage of this benefit when you feel totally comfortable. That is why you should find a massage therapist that makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

  • Recommendations – You are likely to have at least one friend or family member that has visited a professional massage therapist and read their reviews on Bark.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local massage therapists listed will give you a relaxing and therapeutic massage.

You could look for massage therapists with a Level 3 Diploma in Massage or Complementary Therapies. The Council for Soft Tissue Therapies (GCMT) is the governing body for massage therapy and recommends that all massage therapists have taken a full or part-time course.

Before you choose a massage therapist, you could read testimonials and read details of their services on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and read massage reviews from past customers too. This might also help you get some ideas for the type of massage you want to book.
