We all know that massage has numerous amounts of benefits. Whoever received a massage treatment knows how great it makes them feel. But what exactly hides behind it? Why do we actually feel so good and what exactly does massage do to us and our bodies? Let’s find out:
Therapist Spotlight - Claire
This month we have interviewed Claire, our lovely therapist. Find out what she is like outside of the treatment room here:
Claire, where are you from and what brought you to London?
I’m from Brighton originally and I moved up to London for a work opportunity and to be with my boyfriend and friends. It’s also a bit more exciting to be here.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?
At Fulham Massage & Wellness we understand that time is of value. We know that many of you struggle to find time to fit everything into the week. That's why we have created our opening hours in a way to help you find a suitable time for massage treatments when you need them. We are open 7 days a week, 9am till 10pm on the weekdays and 9am till 6.15pm on weekends. We have multiple therapists on each day to enable you to book your appointment at ease. However, with our structure that encourages pre-booking appointments in advance (to prevent and manage pain or stress rather than only react to it), there are times when we run out of on-the-day last minute availability.
As a sport, deep tissue and remedial massage clinic in Fulham, one of our main purposes is to bring pain relief and fix musculoskeletal injuries. With our extensive experience and top skills, we are rated as a 5-star place in London. At Fulham Massage & Wellness people can receive high-quality massage treatments that truly make a difference. With hundreds of clients seen every month, here is a list of conditions we help the most with:
Holiday and Jetlag Massage
With summer just around the corner, many of us start planning holidays and getaways. Life in London can be demanding and it is important to schedule in times of leisure and relaxation. Rest and change of environment are crucial for our mental and physical health and it ensures a good work-life balance. Going away can, however, be stressful when it comes to organising, packing and traveling. Massage before and after holidays can often make the whole process much easier and less intense. If you already receive a regular massage, you can understand how massage can simply make things better.
Have you ever wondered why your therapist is using your “massage time” on some irrelevant talk when you first arrive in the treatment room? Many of you simply want to jump on the massage couch and let the therapist work their massage magic. Whilst there is nothing wrong with that, we want to show you why spending 2-3minutes discussing your preferences and needs can actually ensure the remaining 58 minutes give you the outcome you want.
At Fulham Massage & Wellness, we don’t book our appointments back to back. We space 15min gaps between each massage in order to allow a quick consultation before and after the treatment. This way, if you book 1 hour massage, you will receive as close to an hour as possible.
Therapist Spotlight - Georgia
This month we interview our lovely therapist, Georgia. Many of you met her already and had a chance to experience her great personality and energy. Check out what she does in her spare time and find out more about her dreams:
With London Marathon just around the corner, we are focusing our attention on how to make the most of the experience and prevent any potential injuries. Most marathon training plans range from 12 to 20 weeks. Beginning marathoners should aim to build their weekly mileage up to 50 miles over the four months leading up to race day. Three-to-five runs per week is sufficient. By now, we would have hoped you managed to get a few massage treatments to prepare your body and mind to one of the most demanding physical activities out there. If not, make sure you scheudle your pre marathon massage in Fulham, ideally 2-5 days before the big day.
Stretching can also lead to less injuries but the question is what type of stretching is best before and after the marathon?
