We are one of the only massage therapy studios in Glasgow, that fulfil all of the following:

1. Experienced therapists

Knowing where to apply pressure is the difference between getting rid of pain and making you feel worse! We don’t mess around when it comes to choosing therapists. Our team have years of experience applying massage techniques and the right qualifications to back them up.

2. Convenient location

The whole point of getting a massage is to release tension. So, it makes no sense getting all worked up and travelling miles to get to one. We're in Finnieston which is right in the middle of the City Centre and the West End of Glasgow making our studio very easy to get to.

3. Relaxing environment

Some massage therapists set up their space like a doctor’s surgery, making it difficult to relax, while others opt for a dark spa-like environment where they can barely see what they are doing! Our studio was created to be clinically focused, yet still retain a relaxing quality. This balance ensures you don’t feel tense during their treatments and you get better results.

4. Free consultation time

Too often, massage therapists skip out on a proper consultation and give you a generic treatment that doesn’t help you to achieve your goals. As a result, you leave feeling like you haven’t got value for your money. We’re different. Our treatments include a full consultation allowing you the time to point out problematic areas ahead of schedule and you get the full amount of time you paid for.

We have over 500 five star reviews!

Here's a few of them...

Problems we can help with

Fatigue and low energy

If you feel sluggish and tired then your body could be suffering from a clogged lymphatic drainage system.

Essentially, this means that your body's sewage processing abilities aren't functioning as efficiently as they could be and your lack of energy is the consequence.

Although most massage treatments do - in some way - stimulate the lymphatic system, they aren’t as precise as lymphatic drainage massage. By applying gentle pressure to specific areas around your body, our therapists are able to help you to increase circulation of lymphatic fluid around your body.

Muscle pain

Muscle tension is a necessity in life. You need it to move your body around. But, when that tension builds up too much and becomes stuck, it restricts your movement and causes pain.

Deep tissue massage helps to release that tension, breaking up the knots and adhesions in your muscles so that you can move more freely again.

Sports massage is very similar however the concentration of the massage is on much more acute and chronic muscle pain.

Overwhelming anxiety

When stress and anxiety levels reach a state where you feel completely overwhelmed then it's important that we take greater steps to bring you back to a balanced state.

The way we do this is with the addition of a special blend of oils specifically made to calm your mind and ease the pressure you are putting on yourself.

This is in addition to the already therapeutic benefits of massage. This will allow you to unwind and feel at ease, promoting better sleep and a more relaxed state overall.

Headaches and migraines can be utterly debilitating, stopping you in your tracks and forcing your to lie down for a while.

An Indian head massage is perfect for helping to overcome these bouts and help you to get through these painful moments.

The pains of pregnancy

Being pregnant is a gift. However, with it brings some challenges. One of the most apparent of these is muscle pain - particularly in the legs and lower back.

Our solution is the pregnancy massage. This is very similar to the techniques used in the Swedish and deep tissue massages. However, extra care is required on some areas of the body to ensure confirm and safety of your baby.

Extreme mental and physical overwhelm

When the stress becomes overwhelming both on a physical and mental level, it can leave you feeling helpless.

In order to treat both of these ailments at the same time, we add the use of smooth hot stones. Using them as an extension of our therapists hands, it allows a deeper massage to take place while applying lighter pressure levels. This is because the hot stones will warm your muscle up.

Meanwhile, the extra heat you feel will keep you in the present moment. This meditation-like experience will allow your mind to find quietness again.

Mental stress

Stress in small doses is natural. However, when layers upon layers of issues start to develop, it's easy to start feeling overwhelmed and anxious. This can seep into other areas of your life too such as your career, your relationships and of course, your physical health.

Our solution to mental stress is a relaxing massage technique called Swedish massage. It's light in pressure and is a great way help your mind calm down.

Got Questions?

Here's a quick FAQ for anyone new to massage therapy

Is massage therapy sore?

It really depends on which type of massage treatment you book. If you’re in for any kind of relaxation based treatment then you will have no pain at all.

However, if you’re booked in for a deep-tissue massage or a sports session then the focus of the session will be to break down knots and nodules which can be a little uncomfortable.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to avoid pain when it comes to stubborn muscle tension. With that in mind, our experienced massage therapists will do everything they can to help you feel at ease.

What should I wear?

Sometimes, people get confused about what to wear before a massage treatment, what they should bring along with them and even how they should be covered up during. And, as a result of this confusion, many people put off getting a treatment because they don’t want to feel any kind of discomfort. Rest assured though, it’s much simpler than you think!

All you need to bring along is yourself in comfortable clothing. That’s it! When you’re receiving your treatment, you just keep your pants on and cover yourself with the towels provided and you’ll be all set.

Should I talk during the treatment?

Some clients love to chat during their treatment. Others would rather lie down and just listen to music. There is no right or wrong answer.

Our therapists will gauge how you’re feeling and adjust how much they talk to you accordingly.

Can I fall asleep during the session?

Yes! You’ll still receive the benefits from your massage treatment even though you are asleep.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Sorry, we do not offer walk-in appointments. If you are interested in booking a massage session, click here.

How quickly will I notice results?

Right away! Although each type of massage treatment gives different results, we are confident that you will get results right away after your treatment has finished whether that is in the form of relaxation or pain relief!

How often should I get a massage?

It’s difficult to say exactly how many you need because every person is different. Some of our clients just need one session every few months, others get a treatment every week.

The best way to understand what you need is by following the expert advice of our therapists. Before and after every session, they’ll give you a clear understanding of where you’re at and help you figure out what you need to do next to achieve results going forward.

When should I avoid massage therapy?

If the following apply to you, then you should avoid booking a massage treatment: If you are sick If you’re pregnant (pre-12 weeks) If you have inflammation If you are suffering from nausea If you have bruises, wounds, rashes, or severe sunburn in areas you’d like a massage If your doctor does not recommend you receive at treatment

Do you sell gift vouchers?

How do I know when the massage has ended?

You'll notice your therapist's moves will become less firm and more relaxing. After which, they will let you know your treatment has ended and they will step out of the room for a moment, allowing you to re-dress and receive your aftercare advice.

What payment methods do you offer?

Payment is always taken prior to bookings via our website booking system.

How long should I book in for?

Most clients book in for a 60-minute massage treatment, but just because that’s the most popular doesn’t mean it’s the best option for you. Here’s a couple of things you might want to consider: 

Relaxation vs Pain Relief - some people like to lie and be pampered for 90 minutes with an aromatherapy massage - helping them to let go of any stress. However, if you just have a very specific sore point that needs released, then a 30-minute sports massage may be all you need.

Your Schedule - if you’re a busy bee, juggling studies, work or kids then it’s not always easy to fit 90-minutes into your week so you may opt for a shorter session. Alternatively though, perhaps you’ve got a week off from the chaos you’ve found some time - maybe a longer session will be just the ticket for you?!

Budget - although all our treatments have been priced for people to afford them, we understand that you may not have the money for a longer session. In which case, you can choose a shorter treatment and still get some of the benefit.

We recommend that you avoid holding out and buying one longer session, but opt in for more shorter treatments so that you don’t build up tension over time.

What is your cancellation policy?

Our cancellation policy is that you must give 24-hours notice before your treatment to cancel. If you book a space with one of our therapists and do not show up to your appointment, it's kind of like being asked to come into work and being told to go home unpaid which is unfair. Therefore, we do not accept last minute cancellations (we will not refund or re-schedule your booking). If you cannot make your appointment, and wish to gift your time to a friend then we are willing to accommodate this.

Please note that this policy includes COVID related cancellations.
