60 Minutes of Bliss with Pampr Mobile Massage

Mother's Day might be over, but that doesn't mean it's too late to treat yourself to a little pampering. I recently had the chance to try out the mobile massage services offered by Pampr, a company that offers in- home massage services (why go to the spa when the spa can come to you???). If you're in need of some TLC but it's been tough finding the time to get to the spa, this option is perfect- especially if you can't find a sitter- since you don't even have to leave home. And taking an hour for yourself every once in a while won't only leave you feeling relaxed, it's good for your health.

Health Benefits of Massage:

  • stress relief 
  • soothes anxiety & depression 
  • improves sleep
  • immunity boosting
  • relief from headaches & other pain
... And what parent doesn't need help with some or all of those from time to time???

Relax From Head to Toe
Once Pampr made the arrangements around the date & time I was available- thank goodness for  the help of Grandparents!- I enjoyed an amazing massage by a lovely lady named Gwen. Once she had arrived and set up she asked me what areas I wanted focused on (back, neck & shoulders) and gave me the choice between massage oils (sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil- I chose sweet almond after learning that it leaves your skin silky soft afterwards). When I was ready Gwen turned on some relaxing music and began my massage. 

I was spoilt with a full body massage from head to toe that was a combination of European Lymphatic Swedish & Deep Tissue with some Accupressure for the areas that needed some extra attention (my neck and shoulders always seem to be tight and have knots from working on the computer & picking up kids). Since she's also trained in Reflexology I had some extra attention paid to my feet, which was heavenly. It's hard to pick a highlight since the whole massage was blissful but I loved having my hands and legs massaged; it's amazing how tired these two areas of the body can get. At the end of the massage I felt light as a feather, as if a huge weight had been lifted. My whole body felt relaxed and re- energized and my skin was soft and moisturized from the sweet almond oil Gwen used. 

I was so grateful for this hour of pampering. We're all so busy these days that it can be hard to find time to take care of ourselves, but Pampr makes it so much easier & convenient with their on- demand service that comes to you. If you've been craving a massage and some time to relax I'd definitely recommend you give Pampr a try (how about an in- home couple's massage for your next date night???).

About Pampr
What makes Pampr unique is their mobile on- demand service: You can book same- day massages as soon as 1 hour away (perfect for busy Moms & Dads to enjoy after a hard day when the kiddos are in bed) or schedule a date/ time in advance that works for you.

All you have to do is decide:
- The kind of massage you want (choose from Swedish, Deep Tissue, Couples or Seniors) 
- The length of massage (60, 90, 120 minutes)
- When you want it 
...and Pampr takes care of the rest.

They even accomodate special requests such as booking a half Swedish/ half Deep Tissue massage, or booking a 2 hour session split between a couple. All of the massage therapists that Pampr works with are certified, in addition to having some RMTs on their roster (perfect for those who have coverage through medical benefits); note that RMTs may require more notice than the 1- hour on demand lead time.
