I know it. You know it. And Kim Cattrall knows it. "I've realised that the most important thing I can do to look good is just treat myself well, whether it's getting a nice, long massage or just lying low," quips Kim.
In our time-poor lives where we're juggling multiple tasks, finding time to treat ourselves – whether getting a massage or lying low - is a challenge. Just getting out the door sometimes is near to impossible and that's where BLYS comes in – literally "comes into your home" – so you don't need to leave the house for a well-earned massage treatment.
But before we talk about BLYS, let's look at why a regular massage is important.
An immediate benefit of massage is the feeling of deep relaxation and calm that it gives you. That's the "treat" part. But it's more than that. Massage prompts the release of endorphins which produce feelings of well-being. It also reduces levels of stress hormones such as cortisol, adrenalin and norepinephrine which can impair the immune system. Massage is also effective in treating many health issues such as anxiety, back or neck pain, soft tissue injuries, headache, high blood pressure and insomnia. Other benefits include reduced muscle tension, improved circulation, improved skin tone and heightened mental alertness. There's a lot more science but let's get to the best part. BLYS.
BLYS is an innovative mobile massage service which brings you same-day, in-home massages with the best qualified therapists, all of whom are certified and fully vetted by BLYS.
The best thing about BLYS is that it allows you to book an in-home (or hotel) massage with a qualified massage therapist in as little as one hour. It's a streamlined online booking process which only takes 60 seconds - no phone calls, cashless, secure payment, no stress about finding the right therapist or making the journey to the clinic. All you need to do is go to the website, confirm the type of massage you want, where and when and BLYS will send a qualified therapist to you. BLYS offers a range of massage types which can be viewed here, including remedial, relaxation, sports, pregnancy and couples massages. And, the pricing is competitive with "in clinic" treatments.
To ensure you get the service when and where you want it, BLYS assigns the closest available BLYS massage therapist to you. You don't need to do anything else. BLYS therapists come prepared with a professional massage table and fresh linen and you can be sure of the highest level of integrity and professionalism. All therapists are interviewed in person, hold full qualifications and are insured and accredited by industry associations.
To write this review, I wanted to experience the BLYS service first hand and was not disappointed. The whole process – booking, payment, confirmation, reminders, the massage therapist and the all-important massage exceeded my expectations. So much so, that I'll be booking BLYS again… and booking a massage as a gift for a friend and as a Mother's Day gift.
And don't forget that many private health funds offer rebates for most types of massages if you wanted to claim some of your payment back.
So, take a leaf out of actress, model, dancer, cheerleader, professional wrestler and WWE Diva, Stacy Keibler's book: "I like to have a massage therapist come to my house, get a massage, take a bath, go to bed. That's a perfect night alone for me".
