Urban Massage comes to Manchester

Hello lovelies!

I’ve been a bit AWoL recently sorting out the new House and all, but I am back to tell you all about my recent experience with Urban Massage, a new service in Manchester! Urban Massage is a service which allows you to book a fully qualified, insured and vetted therapist to give a spa-quality massage in 60 minutes notice, in the comfort of your own home. I’ve got a £20 off code for my Manchester based friends, so read on…

I have to admit I was super excited about this, as living in a busy city such as Manchester, spas are either few and far between, questionable in quality, and the good ones are over-the-top expensive. Going for a country retreat isn’t always an option either, with petrol costs, and overnight stays factoring in.

Without the cost of premises and all that comes with it (candles aren’t cheap you know?) an hour massage session is available for £45.00 -That is an amazing price! Simply book your treatment from the selection of massages and prepare a room of your choice for the treatment. Use your own music playlist, your own candles, and your own comfort zone within your house to receive your treatment.

I chose to book my Swedish massage treatment online – I had a minor issue with my post code not being on the system, as my property is a new build, but using the support chat function I spoke to the wonderful Sophie over the phone who was lightning fast to rectify the issue and got me added on to the system immediately. She then handled the rest over the phone, booking in my female therapist Megan to give me my treatment.

The Lovely Megan

Megan arrived on time lugging her massage table on wheels – which I then rather guiltily asked her to take up to the second floor of my house. Bless her, she did this with no complaint what so ever!

Beforehand I made my room look extra pretty and relaxing using my large collection of candles (see here and here).

Candles and Roses!

I was made comfortable and asked which areas I would like to focus on – I’ve got super tight calves and shoulders at the moment, so Megan set to work on my muscles and showing me no mercy! I love a good bit of pressure in a massage, as I see it as more therapeutic than simple relaxation. However if that’s not your style, there are relaxation massages available for those who simply need to unwind.

Want to know the best bit? If you live in London or Manchester I can get you a whopping £20 off your treatment!!! That means an hour’s massage for only £25! Simply click here to book your treatment and claim £20 off – or enter RJESSITE at the checkout.

A massage table and natural massage oils are supplied. Treatments range from relaxing to remedial treatments including Swedish, Deep Tissue and Thai Yoga Massage. Currently operating in London and Manchester, you can book online via the website, or use the iPhone & Android apps or by calling 0203 0519 021

Thank you Megan for being so lovely and patient – I’m just glad my husband turned up to take the table back downstairs for us!!!

Side note: my super relaxing Spotify playlist can be found here.

Wilko Fruits Bath & Body Range

I don’t know about you, but in my family we don’t always buy our recurring beauty/cleaning groceries in our standard weekly shop – we often do a Wilko run! They’re such great value and always have better offers on.

I was wandering into Wilko to actually buy some candy – I was going to watch Antman at the cinema (awesome film by the way) – when my attention was caught by the super bright and fun Fruits range. I mean, look at how colourful and beautiful they are!

Fruits body care and skin care range at Wilko

These are available in the following scents, some novel and others rather familiar:-

  • Coconut and Vanilla
  • Lime and Ginger
  • Blueberry and Grape
  • Lemon and Black Pepper – I bought the Shower Gel
  • Strawberry and Pomegranate
  • Passionfruit and Melon – I bought the Soap
  • Orange and Pomelo – I bought the Shampoo
  • Rhubarb and Vanilla – I bought the Bath Foam

In each fragrance range there are a whole bunch of products for your skin and your hair:-

  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Hand Soap
  • Body Lotion
  • Body Butter
  • Soap
  • Bath Bomb
  • Face mask
  • Lip balm
  • Body Scrub

You can also get matching shower puffs for your favourite colour! Not all of these products are always available in store, a rather helpful person told me on Instagram, but you can get them online! and a 95p each per item (Yes, that cheap!) and using sustainable palm oil, you can feel guilt-free!

Look how they can add a splash of colour to a white bathroom. The Rhubarb and Vanilla Bath Foam smells exactly like it’s candy counterpart, and I absolutely loved using it! My skin was not irritated at all by the formula and it was a delight to use!
