Putting yourself in the right hands

Do something good for yourself

Massages are a great way of caring for both your mind and your body. They can help you heal from an injury, or alleviate signs of stress. Massages could become a regular routine for you. They can also be a one-off treat or a thoughtful gift for a loved one. In fact, many therapists offer couples massage, so you can bond with a partner.


There are many massage services for you to choose from. Some are inspired by ancient healing techniques, such as Thai or Reiki massage. Other therapies, like deep tissue or sports massage, could be recommended by your GP. Finding your ideal massage depends on your physical needs and what you’re comfortable with. Whatever therapy you choose, it’s sure to leave you feeling both relaxed and rejuvenated.

Finding your happy place

The job of a masseuse is to create an environment you feel comfortable in. A treatment room will often have soothing music, burning incense, and essential oils. These appeal to the senses and enable you to unwind. Relaxing your body makes you more receptive to massage therapy.


Many professional massage therapists also offer home visits. This means you can receive professional treatment in a familiar environment. They’ll often bring a specialised massage table to your home, with any other equipment they might need. A home massage is also perfect if you have problems getting about. They're suited to pregnant women and new mothers, as well as those with chronic pain or joint problems.

Heads, shoulders, knees, and toes

The job of your local massage therapist is to understand your body. They’re trained to identify sources of tension or pain. They’ll apply pressure on or around the affected area, adjusting based on your response. A full body massage has many benefits, but you could be looking for massage therapy on a specific part of your body.


For example, many people neglect to look after their feet. Pregnant women often experience swelling in their feet and ankles. A foot massage increases circulation to reduce pressure. Or, you may feel that Indian head massage is right for you. Not only can it stop headaches and migraines, but it can also treat symptoms of anxiety and insomnia. Face massage is also growing in popularity as a form of skin care. This works by stimulating blood flow to your face, leaving you with a healthy, natural glow.

Do you specialise in a particular type of massage?

There are many types of massage to choose from, all with their own benefits. One of our most popular services is hot stone massage. Not only can it relieve tension, but it also helps with arthritis and autoimmune diseases. We try to educate people about what each treatment offers, so they can find one that’s right for them.

Are there benefits to massage people may not be aware of?

It’s well known what massages can do for both physical and emotional tension. However, people may not be aware of how it can connect people with their body. People will push themselves to the limit, and ignore their body’s response. People should value what their body does for them every day. This is why massage can also work for people who have issues with confidence or body image.

What’s the key to a great massage?

A professional massage therapist should have training, particularly if they’re offering a speciality like reflexology. Personally, I believe that it’s all about trust. Bodies can talk. Regardless of what a person may say, I can tell almost immediately if they’re uneasy or tentative. When I’m giving someone a massage, I’m allowing them to open up to me. They need to be assured that their body is in good hands.

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.
