Three years ago I was invited to visit The Massage Company in Camberley, which was a new company that had recently opened. A few weeks ago, they asked me if I would like to come back and see what changed in this time. Firstly I couldn’t believe it had been three years since I went and secondly I was excited to go back.
The Massage Company was set up because they have a belief that regular massage helps with stress, aid relaxation and raise alertness. To make it part of your routine, and not just something you do once in a while. To get people to understand and see the benefits of having a massage once a month. It’s not like going to a spa. There are no fluffy robes and slippers.
Since I went three years ago, I was pleased to find out that The Massage Company and its concept has really taken off and they now have centres in High Wycombe, Tunbridge Wells and Sutton Coldfield.
The Camberley centre is ideally located opposite the Main Square car park. They want their centres to be located easily for people to visit.
I visited last week on a wet day and I was looking forward to having a massage. I had been experiencing pain in my leg and was keen to get it looked at. I was really pleased to find out that I had the same massage therapist as last time. It shows that they must look after their staff well, to have loyal staff that stay for years. On arrival I completed a form to let them know any medical issues, or areas of concern I had with my body.
I was then taken to a room for my massage, they have rooms downstairs and upstairs and this time I was downstairs. The rooms are nicely laid out and not cramped. We talked through what I had put on my form and I spoke about the pain I had been experiencing in my leg. She then left the room, while I got unchanged and onto the table under the sheet. They uncover each area as they massage it and are very discreet.
I had opted for a deep tissue aromatheaphy massage and I was able to choose which fragrance oil was used. As the therapist started on my legs, she could instantly feel the tension in my leg.
I had a full body massage lasting 50 minutes and I honestly have never needed it more or come out from a massage feeling so good. At the end I was given a hot flannel to wipe away the excess oil and she offered to rub it off my back for me. She then left while I got dressed and she met me outside with a glass of water.
The therapist spoke about my legs and the tension I was experiencing is most commonly from wearing flip flops, as your feet try to keep them on. Whilst we haven’t had that many sunny days, I had been wearing them and that made sense.
Other areas she could feel tension were in my upper back and neck, which is from using my laptop at lot and I know that I should sit at a proper desk. I was given a note with recommendations, and she said I would benefit from an 80 minute hot stone massage next time as that would really help the tension in my body.
The Massage Company have an easy affordable way to sign up and pay by monthly direct debit, which reduces the cost of the massage and you can book online when you want your massage. I know that I am one of these people that know that I would really benefit from a monthly massage and its something that I should consider building into my life.
I came away feeling so much better and able to move more freely. My mind and body were reset and it was a reminder to me that a massage shouldn’t just be a treat once in a while.
