Wellness plays an integral part in our day-to-day lives, especially for those who live through the hustle and bustle of city life. But sadly many who fall within this category, struggle to find the time to make our way across the city in time for appointments. Especially during the dreaded rush hour. On the other side of this, wellness professionals often do not reap the rewards they sow, with many only taking an average of 20% of what we pay them.

Urban gives city folks the opportunity to book wellness treatments; such as massages, osteopathy, and beauty services, all of which are ready to come straight to your front door, all it takes is a click of an app. Whilst also ensuring their self-employed professionals walk home with 80% of the cost of treatment and 100% of the tips.
