How Much Does a Massage Cost in London

Nina J. Saturday, July 11, 2020
Massage is often considered a luxury treat to be enjoyed only during special occasions. However, massage does not have to cost the earth and received regularly can improve your health.

The cost of your massage will depend on the duration and type of treatment you choose and whether you visit a dedicated spa or have it delivered to you.

For a professional Therapeutic body massage you should expect to pay a rate of around £60 and upwards per hour. Some providers also charge additional fees to cover items such as travel and specialist products. 

The cost of getting a massage in London depends on where you have it, the treatment type and also the type of provider you choose. You can choose to receive your massages at your own place - known as mobile massage or to visit a hotel spa, high street beauty salon or at the local gym.

The average cost of getting a massage at a dedicated salon or spa in London is £75 for a one hour treatment. The average cost of getting a mobile massage in London is £70 for an hour. This excludes any travel or parking fees that may be charged by the provider.

Your choice of provider will affect not only the cost of your massage treatment but also the setting, quality and reliability that you will experience.

If you opt for a massage in one of London’s hotel spas then expect to pay well above the average price, with total costs for a one hour treatment getting closer to £100. You should however also expect to receive a very high level of service with complimentary refreshments and access to the spas other facilities, such as a swimming pool or sauna.

If you look for independent massage therapists who advertise on free classifieds boards online, then you may find the lowest priced massages. 

Over the past 10 years on-demand mobile massage services have become increasingly more popular in London.

Traditionally, people would book a massage several days in advance. As the urban environment in London have become increasingly hectic, customers have shifted towards booking their treatments at the very last minute.

I Love Massage London has been offering a wide range of home and hotel visiting massage therapists, delivered to your doorstep in as little as an hour, with some of the most popular listed below:

Swedish Massage London - Swedish massage is a technique which soothes and relaxes the body to give a great sensation of overall well-being. It is ideal for specific physical problems such as muscle tension, tendon and ligament problems, Swedish massage can be used to relax muscles after physical exertion or to warm and loosen them in preparation for exercise, and it is also a great mental and emotional stress reliever.

Deep Tissue Massage London – Deep tissue massage is a focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle knots and specific problem areas in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Using deliberate, slow strokes or friction across the grain of the muscle, the therapist addresses chronic tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or injuries.
 
Therapeutic Massage London – Therapeutic Massage Therapy is a great way to improve your quality of life. It relieves stress, can be both stimulating or soothing, and helps to create inner balance and harmony. Therapeutic Massage Therapy is defined as the mobilization of soft tissue (such as muscle, fascia and body fluids) to restore normal systemic and biomechanical/functional use.

Sports Massage London - Designed to prevent and treat injuries, improve flexibility, and enhance athletic performance, sports massage can be used by athletes of all abilities to prepare for or recover from athletic or sports events. Even if you aren't an athlete, sports massage may help muscle pain or restricted range of motion.

Thai Massage London – A unique blend of assisted yoga, passive stretching, and pressing massage movements, Thai massage is more energizing than other forms of massage. It's a little bit like yoga without doing the work, as the therapist moves and stretches you in a sequence of postures, usually on a mat on the floor.

Relaxing Massage London - Relaxing massage is all about relaxing! It focuses on helping the client recover from the stresses of daily life. As our days get shorter because our lives get busier, we forget to take the time out we need to destress. This can have serious side effects. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy a relaxing massage because it produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

It is fair to say that probably the most indulgent setting for massage therapy is most often found in top-end hotel spas.

But at what cost? And are you really getting good value for money?

Many luxury hotels in London charge between £75 - £110 for a 1 hour massage, with the cost increasing even higher if you want it delivered to your room.

If you plan in advance, you can get the same quality of therapist- often even better and massage treatment for a fraction of the price. Simply prepare your room in advance so that it feels like a spa haven and book your experienced therapist as little as an hour beforehand.
