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.

Thousands of happy clients!

Here's a few of them...

Jim McWilliams

Massage client

“I have been to many places and this is now at the top of my list for massage in Glasgow.

Jo-Anne Livingston

Massage client

“As someone who has enjoyed a variation of massages throughout Glasgow, I consider this to be the best massage treatment I’ve ever had. You will not want for more pressure, she gets right in there! 100% recommended and will be back.”

Kim

Massage client

“Honestly one of the best massages I’ve ever had. I work in a similar industry , so Ive had my fair share of massages over the years. I have a bad whiplash injury from 7 months ago , that is causing me no end of bother, and this massage has been amazing.”

Laura

Massage client

Today I had a very wonderful massage (deep tissue massage), I feel so fresh and my muscles are alive! The service is great. The place is beautiful and calm. The general atmosphere is comfortable and warm. I will definitely come back to this place again, and I definitely recommend it very much. Thank you. You are a nice and wonderful team

Sarah

Massage client

I really enjoyed my experience at Deserved Massage. The whole process was very professional and smooth from booking to what to do upon arrival. I liked just going in and waiting without any fuss. I had a Deep Tissue Massage from Wendy and it was brilliant. I feel it helped a lot with my shoulder tension. Would absolutely recommend.

Rachel

Massage client

I showed up booked in for an Indian Head Massage, but after explaining my reasons why (hyper - mobile, lots of tension, etc) she said I'd probably be better off with a neck, shoulders and back massage instead and she knew exactly every part of them that were bothering and needing focused on without any guidance. Very, very good. Will definitely be back.

Jonny

Massage client

Had my treatment from the lovely Wendy and words cannot begin to describe the feeling. I'm pretty sure the ancestors knots were taken care of during that deep tissue massage. She took time out to listen to what my concerns were, took care of them and then took time after to give some after care. Naturally a revisit is in order and will be done for sure. I had the best night's sleep after.

Harmony

Massage client

I had my first massage here today with Wendy. It was a deep tissue massage that lasted 45 minutes. Great value for money and a very satisfying massage, exactly what I needed! Would highly recommend.

Barry

Massage client

Abbi was on point with today's session - it was clear she understood my body she seen signs of stress in me and knew there were areas on my shoulders and lower back needing further relief; I booked a 45-minute Swed. massage and really enjoyed the experience - Abbi focused to relieve areas most tense, I felt relaxed during the massage and I'd like to continue treatment with her.

Alastair

Massage client

First time getting the sports massage. Feel much better especially in my shoulder area and my lower back pain hasn't bothered me since, can now focus on the gym properly again. Big thanks to Wendy for making it a good experience.

Jamie

Massage client

It was my first day in Glasgow after a very long flight. Wendy was terrific! I feel so much better. If my itinerary allows, I would love to come back! Thank you so much Wendy!!!

Rita

Massage client

First time having a deep tissue massage at Deserved Massage . Abbi was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable making me feel at ease during the process. Felt great afterwards and I will definitely be going back here.

Callum

Genuinely excellent pregnancy massage! Feel relaxed and my back and neck feel great. Cannot recommend enough.

Olivia

Massage client

Abbi was wonderful she knew what I needed and had a very nice flow along with just the right amount of pressure! I would highly recommend her.

Lisa

Massage client

I booked a 90 minute Sports/Tissue massage with Abbi for my mum on her birthday and it was the best massage she has ever experienced. She left feeling amazing and told me how Abbi was so knowledgeable about muscles and knew exactly what to do for her soar muscles. I'm over the moon with how well she took care of my mum and we will be returning.

Yvanna

Massage client

A wonderful experience and quite simply the best sports massage I have had in years! I’m a musician, and had requested Abbi focus on my upper back, neck, and shoulders where I hold a lot of tension. By the end of the session, so much of the tension in my neck, shoulders and arms had been released and I felt more flexible, open and rejuvenated, Abi then took time to talk about ways in which I could improve my overall posture and shared some really useful exercises that could help open up my chest area and strengthen my back muscles. I can highly recommend and will definitely be returning. Thank you Abi!

Andrea

Massage client

Best sports massage I’ve ever had! Tailored to your needs and made me feel comfortable throughout”

Nicola Gallacher

Tom Chambers

One of the best massages I have ever had! Lovely atmosphere. Worked on all the problems I have been having with my shoulders. Highly recommend.” 

Adam Kashmiry

“Was very pleased with the massage I received. I’d been having a bit of pain and tightness in my right shoulder. Everything was explained very clearly beforehand and I’m very happy to say my shoulder is feeling much better now!

Hamish

Massage client

Just had my first massage here today and it was the best massage I’ve had in a very long time. I get a massage every 4 weeks and have done for a lot of years. I always come away still not feeling like all my knots are out. But today I actually feel like all my knots have gone. I also love that they’re opened on a Sunday.

Claire

Massage client

I had an excellent and extremely helpful experience at Deserved Massage. My shoulder had been giving me problems from extreme hours at work and after doing some research on Google and reading reviews I decided to try this place.

Gillian

Massage client

Abbi is a wonderful therapist. She took time at the start to really understand the issues I was having and focused deep tissue massage on where it would help me the most. Great aftercare and follow up advice too. Looking forward to regular massage with Abbi to keep me mobile and manage stress.

Gillian

Massage client

I had a great Deep Tissue Massage with Jeannie. She listened attentively and dealt with your needs. She also helped in identifying areas where I need further treatment with different health professionals. She was perfect and the environs were superb. Thank you.

Stevie

Massage client

First time ever having a sports massage - Jeannie was really friendly and explained the process clearly. Great massage and lovely environment. Highly recommend if you sit at a desk all day!

Cat

The Sports/deep tissue massage was exactly what I needed as I had knots and pain in my back and shoulders. I’m a CrossFit athlete so it’s really important to recover well from the intense exercise. Thank you Wendy for an amazing massage!

Myrm

Massage client

I had the 45 minute deep tissue treatment with Wendy and it was yhe best massage i’ve received. My neck back and shoulders are prone to tightness and spasm due yo my work and the relief Wendy provided was wonderful. Perfect pressure, de-knotted. Excellent service!

Russell

Massage client

Wendy was superb! I was nervous about my pregnancy massage being 38 weeks pregnant but she put me at ease and did a wonderful job to relax me. Just what I need as I go closer to my due date.

Tarandeep

Massage client

I had been dealing with a pinched nerve and pain in my left shoulder and right hip for almost a year. One 45 minute session at Deserved Massage and the pain and tightness has all but gone I would definitely recommend.

Stephen

Massage client

Excellent deep tissue massage. Wendy listened to exactly where I was feeling tight, and then spent time chasing down all the knots she found. I'll definitely be back.

Liam

Massage client

Very happy with massage. It's difficult to find a good masseuse but Jeannie was one of the best.

Dawn

Massage client

Highly recommend Deserved Massage. Wendy gave me a sports massage and was very informative about the injury I have. I will definitely be going back soon. Cant recommend her highly enough.

Liz

Massage client

Got this voucher for my birthday and it was the best massage I've ever had. Got the Swedish Massage and it was relaxing but firm enough to actually make a difference (not just someone rubbing oil on you). Will book in again when I'm in Glasgow! Thanks Wendy!

Sophia

Massage client

Relaxing but healing massage. Focused on injured and tense regions for a more personalised massage and good advice for methods of tension release. Overall very pleasant experience! Would highly recommend for all.

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.

Stress & 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

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.

Poor sleep

Research has shown that massage can be an effective way to improve sleep quality. Massage can help to relax the body and mind, reducing levels of stress and anxiety. This can lead to improved sleep quality, as well as reduced fatigue during the day. Massage has also been shown to reduce the symptoms of insomnia, helping people to fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep for longer periods of time. In addition, massage can help to improve circulation and increase levels of serotonin, both of which can contribute to a more restful sleep. For these reasons, massage is often recommended as a way to improve sleep quality for those who are struggling with poor sleep.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
