Hiring a Bidvine Massage Therapist

There is nothing nicer than a massage after a hard day's work. A massage therapist is a qualified professional who uses massage therapy techniques to help soothe sore muscles so you can relax and feel renewed. 

If you're struggling with sore muscles or stress, visit your healthcare provider first. They might prescribe massage therapy as a complement to your existing health care regimes. Massage therapists are educated in anatomy and physiology and will be able to supplement your medical care.


Types of Massage

There is a wide range of different types of massage, each with specialised massage techniques such as: 

  • deep tissue massage
  • back massage
  • Swedish massage
  • shiatsu massage
  • aromatherapy
  • reiki massage
  • sports massage
  • pre or postnatal massage
  • hot stone massage


Hot Stone Massage


Getting a massage from a professional therapist will relax you and can reduce pain. Massage therapy can even help with the recuperation from trauma or injury. Stress relief, improved blood circulation, and increased mobility are just some of the benefits of massage therapy.

A professional massage therapist will tailor your massage to relax the muscles that are causing the most tension. For instance, if you've primarily been experiencing back pain, they can use specialised back massage techniques to soothe sore muscles here.

Alternatively, if you are looking to hire a sports massage therapist, they'll focus on reducing aches and tense muscles related to your sport.

Many massage therapists also use essential oils to improve the experience of the massage with aromatherapy. Most people find these oils to be beneficial to their health and calming.


Choose The Best Location

When you request massage therapy on Bidvine, we'll also ask you about your travel and schedule preferences. This ensures that everyone is on the same page. Be sure to specify whether you are looking for mobile massage therapy or for a local massage therapist who provides massage therapy at a clinic. 


Provide Essential Details Ahead of Time

It is important to mention in Bidvine's simple form if you have any medical or skin conditions. Disclosing this information will improve the experience for everyone.

Even if you have limited mobility, you can still have massage therapy. Massages can take place on a massage chair, on a flatbed or even in a wheelchair. 


What to Expect From Massage Therapy & Massage Therapist Qualifications

Massage therapists seek to help people through massage. To become a massage therapist professionals study through massage therapy training programs. 

In the UK, massage therapists generally obtain their qualifications either through a college course in massage or complementary therapies or through an advanced apprenticeship in beauty therapy massage. 

To learn more about your massage therapist's training and additional specialisations like sports massage therapy,  before you hire a massage therapist simply ask about their credentials.

If you have any queries, use Bidvine to contact your therapist directly. Bidvine gives you the freedom to discuss your needs in more detail or make arrangements with ease. Bidvine's outstanding customer service team will be there for you throughout the process. Our team will answer any questions you may have with care and understanding.


Types of Massage: Deep Tissue, Swedish, Shiatsu, Thai, Reiki, Pre-Natal, Post-Natal

Health Issues: Pain Relief, Increase Flexibility, Injury Therapy, Detoxification, Increase Circulation

Common Questions

Answers to commonly asked questions about Massage Therapy from the professionals that are using Bidvine.

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy aims to reduce tension, soothe sore muscles, lower stress, and improve motion after injury. For more information on different types of massage and massage therapy qualifications simply take a look at the section below. Then once you've decided on the best type of massage, it's easy to book a massage therapist too. Simply submit a free request to get bids from local massage therapists.

What type of massage is the best?

Some massages are better for relaxation and reducing stress, whereas others have more practical reasons such as a sports massage. Swedish Massage: What is Swedish massage? A Swedish massage is one of the more popular kinds of massage. A Swedish massage uses a mixture of these basic movements, long (sweeping) strokes, deep pressure to work out knots in the muscle tissue, and tapotement (rhythmic tapping) movements. Hot Stone massage: In a hot stone massage, the massage therapist will massage your body with smooth movements using heated stones.
