Urban Massage
Urban Massage announces new on-demand wellness services, including fitness and beauty, and immediately raises over £2.5m in investment via equity crowdfunding platform, Seedrs.

This morning (13 Aug 18), Urban Massage, the tech-forward wellness app, announced plans to launch a new suite of wellness services from September this year. Urban MassageAt the same time, they launched their public crowdfunding campaign on leading European equity investment platform, Seedrs - and within hours had hit and exceeded their target to raise £2.5 million.

Since launch in 2014, the Company has recorded over 330,000 treatments, and built up a strong base of loyal customers, including 10,000 monthly active users and a 70% repeat rate across the board. Urban Massage’s mission has always been about offering self-care on-demand, starting with the ability to book an expert massage therapist to your home within an hour, so their growth into offering a full self-care suite, including fitness, confidence-boosting beauty treatments, and strength-building medical services like osteopathy and physio, is a natural next step.

In the EU and US alone, the health and wellness industry is reportedly valued at $319bn, so you might have expected their on-demand wellness services platform to get good traction on Seedrs from investors and customers alike, but even the co-founders of Urban Massage might be surprised how quickly the £2.5m target was reached. Congrats team. 

A healthly future for Urban Massage is predicted - sorry for 'massaging their egos' even more perhaps ;)
