This post contains my referral link for a service I have personally used.
One of the luxuries that I do allow myself to partake in on occasion is getting a massage. You can be the laziest person ever and book this massage. Because they come to your house. All you need to do is launch the app, put in your credit card, book it, and be ready to strip down when a stranger comes into your home with a massage table and oil. The best part: the tip is included!
I feel bad that he or she has to go up three flights of stairs with a massage table to get to my apartment and doesn’t expect a tip out of it. Not my business model though. It is such a convenience to have an in-home massage and not drive around in my car all oily. I can just hop in the shower after they leave. You don’t need to subscribe to any membership packages or prepay for a certain amount of massages. (In fact, it’s not even possible for you to do either of those things) I’ve used Soothe twice and the woman actually went to high school with me.
She picked me the second time because she recognized me from the first time and I guess I was easy to work with. Why did I book a second massage? Because I was successfully able to refer someone! I’m too cheap to pay $100 for an hour massage. I have no idea who, but I posted it on a web forum and someone random clicked it. Thank you stranger.
The most important questions from their FAQ:
Q: How does Soothe work?
A: Soothe allows you to order a five-star massage to your home, hotel, office, or event in as little as an hour. We match your massage request with a vetted, certified massage therapist available in your area at the specified time. At your appointment time, a therapist will arrive at your door with massage table, fresh linens, lotions, oils, and music to ensure a relaxing massage. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your massage.
Q: Do I need to tip my massage therapist?
A: No. Unlike traditional spas, Soothe will never ask you to tip. We take good care of our therapists and pay them above industry standard.
Click this link to utilize my Soothe referral code. If you use it, I will get $30 credit towards a future Soothe massage and you will get $30 off your first Soothe massage. Fair warning though, if you love the first one , you just might keep getting them and the full price massage is, I think, a little bit on the luxury side. However, $70 for an hour long massage is pretty normal at a traditonal spa around these parts. And that’s before you add the tip.
