Why book a body massage at home?


For many busy individuals living in London, finding the time to relax (even just for an hour) can be extremely difficult. If we wanted to book a massage for ourselves it would be a long-winded process, which most likely involves searching Google for a “massage near me”, calling up a few places, picking a date and time, travelling, signing in at the reception desk… you get the idea.


With the emergence of new mobile massage companies in London, it has become even easier to book a massage near you. The therapist will turn up at a time of your choice with a portable bed and the necessary oils for your treatment. But why should you book a massage at home rather than visiting your nearest massage clinic? Here’s why.



Whether it’s work, family, friends or something else, there’s always something that seems to pop up and disturb your plans for the day. But not with a mobile massage. Here at BodyPro, you can book a massage on the same day and the therapist can be at your door in the next hour.


Why travel to a clinic when you can stay at home? According to City A.M., the average person spends 107 hours a year commuting across London to work. So after a busy day there’s no need for many of us to travel any further. Relax at home and put your slippers on. With a mobile massage at home you don’t need to travel anywhere. You choose the therapist, you choose the address, and you choose the time.


Cost effective

Time is money, and so is rent. For many massage clinics their prices have to reflect the extra overheads they are paying on top of the massage you are receiving. In London, you’re likely to see prices in private clinics for around £85 for a one-hour session; whereas on BodyPro you can book a cheap, expert massage at home for as little as £40 for one-hour.


At BodyPro we empower our mobile massage therapists to choose their own pricing. Therefore the prices you see will be chosen by the therapist, and will be based on their current business offering, expertise, experience and so on. As a competitive marketplace, this helps us to ensure that you, as the customer, can compare and choose a trusted mobile massage for a reasonable price.



There’s no better feeling than enjoying a massage in the comfort and safety of your own home, especially during a busy week. As a mobile massage service in London we ensure that you feel all the benefits of a spa massage in your own living room. And as you already feel comfortable in your own space, your muscles will relax and open up to a deeper, better massage.


Each of our mobile massage therapists are trained and vetted specifically for the types of massage they are offering. This includes a qualifications, insurance and background check as well as a physical assessment. So, rather than having a therapist that is skilled in many areas, or a therapist that has just completed a weekend course in Ibiza, you can be sure you’re booking a specialised massage therapist near you.


So, what are you waiting for? Quit searching for “massage near me” and book a reliable home massage with a vetted and trained therapist in London today.

How yoga will transform your strength training


Though many people see yoga as an easier alternative to strength training and cardiovascular exercise, in reality it can be incredibly physically demanding and intense. In fact, certain types of yoga can be very effective at building muscle and enhancing performance. 

If you’re looking for ways to complement and enhance your strength training regime, incorporating just a small amount of yoga into your weekly workout could make a huge difference.

Here are just a few ways that yoga could help to transform your body and complete your workout.


Core strength

One of the most important ways that yoga can help to enhance your strength training regime is by helping you to work your core muscles.

As having a strong core makes all physical exercise easier, developing these muscles will help you to perform better during your strength training and cardiovascular workouts.

Strong core muscles can also help to prevent injury, so you won’t have to take time out to recover from aches and strains.

Yoga poses like the plank, side plank and warrior III are all great for working your core and building strength.


Mental strength

To transform your body through strength training takes a huge amount of motivation, dedication and commitment.

Yoga helps to focus your mind, control your breathing and build mental strength - helping you to overcome fitness obstacles and achieve the results you’ve always wanted.



Balance is incredibly important in most forms of exercise. Since strength training and weightlifting doesn’t really help you to improve your balance, bringing yoga into your workout can help you to develop this specific part of your physical fitness.

Many yoga poses work to improve balance, helping you to control your body and create a more rounded regime.



Though yoga isn’t just about stretching, by constantly pushing yourself to get deeper into the poses you can improve your flexibility and range of motion. As well as making your body feel more flexible, this should also make you less injury prone.

Increasing your range of motion can complement the power and muscle you’re building through strength training, resulting in a body that is supple as well as strong.  



If you’ve already started strength training, you’ll know just how physically demanding it can be. Taking regular time off to let your body recover and your muscles heal is important for preventing injury and building strength safely.

During your off days from strength training, you can use yoga to gently work your muscles and develop your core strength. This should help you to boost your workout without damaging your body.


By combining a physically and mentally demanding exercise like yoga with explosive lifts and weight training, you can develop your entire body and strengthen every muscle.

A combined yoga and strength training regime will help you to transform your body and make it stronger than ever before. Yoga is also a beautiful practice which will help you look within, providing an opportunity to pull you away from the daily stresses of work and allow you to focus on your breath and body, whilst cutting away all the mental chatter in our minds which can be extremely exhausting.

Here at BodyPro we aim to make it easy for you to book qualified and trusted yoga teachers in London. So if you’re looking for something extra to your strength training, check out the yoga teachers in your area and book a session online.
