FAQ

Frequently asked questions for mobile massage in Bristol and Oxford. 

Having a massage in a salon or spa can be wonderful but getting there and back can be an unnecessary stress; rush hour driving, finding a parking space and going back outside into the cold after your massage is not conducive to your much needed relaxation. We take all this stress away by coming to you.

We have massage therapists all over Bristol. You can see the areas we cover by heading to our locations page for more details.

Our list of services can be found on our treatments page where you can find out a bit more information about each type of treatment to help decide which type of treatment you would like best, but if you cant decide then you can always go for the Bespoke massage and just chat with your therapist when they arrive about what kind of treatment they would suggest.  

Booking your treatment could not be simpler. Our therapists add their availability to our calender systen so we can always have someone ready for you to book at a time that suits you. When you land on our site simply follow the prompts from the home page to Book a massage and you will be taken right to the scheduler where you can make your request.

Our online booking system is the simplest, quickest and most efficient way for massage treatments to be booked. As we are a completely mobile company that is run by therapists, we do not have a staff member at the desk at all times to take down details. We also ask for a few health details when you book your treatment and to digitally agree that you are happy to receive your massage. This saves time during your actual treatment and allows your massage therapist to prepare themselves prior to  arriving at your door.

Your therapist will arrive at the agreed time that you book, but the length of the treatment is time actually on the table, so remember to allow approximately five minutes either side of your treatment for your therapist to set up and pack down.

Once you book your massage treatment you might be wondering how you can make your massage experience even better and maximise the benefits. Some things you could do in preparation could be to:

  • Have a bath or shower in advance to warm your muscles and kick start your relaxation.
  • Ensure your room in nice and warm so you feel completely at ease when laying down on the massage table. 
  • Some clients like to indulge by using a body brush or doing a scrub in advance to turn the luxury of your massage treatment up a notch.
  • Consider putting your phone to silent and letting your friends and family know that you’re taking some time out for massage and me-time.

If we have therapists in your area of Bristol then you will be able to book your massage treatment easily via our website. You will be guided through  the booking process, from choosing the right massage for you to selecting a date and time and then requesting your massage therapist.

If you would like to get a massage from Relax & Be but it doesn’t look like our services are in your area yet then it’s worth signing up to our newsletter. This way we can keep you updated if we start providing massages near you in the future.

We are always open to expanding to new areas of the UK so if you think there is a market for our services in your area  and you are able to offer fifteen hours availability most weeks then it’s worth getting in touch to see if we could work together to provide massage treatments near you together. Check out our About us page to find out more and to complete a therapist Application.

Each therapist is trade tested, which means that when they apply they provide a massage treatment to one of our team. When we receive a massage treatment from a potential new massage therapist we are not only looking for the quality of the massage itself ,but for the quality of the whole experience from when the therapist arrives, their manner, courtesy and presentation as well as their knowledge relating to the musculoskeletal system.  We check all qualifications and insurance also so that  we can be sure we are supplying you with the very best possible service.

We get lots of new clients as first timers for massage in Bristol and they often ask how we operate here and if it’s similar to other massage services in other parts of the UK.

Mobile massage services have been popping up everywhere lately, so if you’ve ordered a massage in London or any of the other big cities, then ours is likly to be very similar. 

Our team of independent massage therapists all use their own oils, so we can’t give you an exact answer of what products will be used during your massage treatment, but most therapists will either use a natural base oil such as almond oil or grapeseed oil, a natural massage wax , balm or a cream.

Some of our massage therapists will provide essential oils for during your massage treatment irrelevant to the treatment type you have booked, so if you have any allergies it is important to state these in your health form when you book your massage. If you definitely want to have essential oils included in your treatment then you will need to choose an aromatherapy massage.

After a Relax Bristol massage you’re already in the cosy surroundings of home so why not use the time you would have otherwise spent travelling to have a hot bath or curl up on the sofa with a herbal tea and carry on the relaxation into the evening!

Feel free to get into something comfortable like your pyjamas or a dressing gown for when your massage therapist arrives. We kindly ask to keep your underwear on during your massage treatment  for both hygiene and so our therapists feel safe but everything else will usually be requested to be removed including jewelry for your comfort. You will always be given full privacy to get your self on and off the massage table.
