Massage For Back Pain
Back pain is becoming an increasing problem for people of all ages around the world. Formerly thought of as a problem which is restricted to the elderly, it is now known to affect people of all ages, due to the increasing level of sedentary lifestyles we're adopting. Yet as people get older, there is a higher chance of their developing lower back pain. Interestingly, back pain is not a disorder per se, as we may be tempted to think; it is usually a symptom of different medical problems.

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.

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.
