I’ve been talking about the “new things” for quite some time (so long you’ve probably forgotten I’ve said new things were coming!) So here we are – all the newness, presented in one handy blog post.
UPDATED MENU OF SERVICES
I’ve restructured my menu of services to give a truer representation of what I do. The new Integrative Therapy Massage is our former Relaxation Massage with all of our Massage Enhancements thrown in. If you want a relaxation massage, no problem. If you need some reflexology, stretching, hot stones, or cupping, those techniques are available to you now at no additional charge. Aromatherapy and hot towels are still provided at no additional charge.
The Ashiatsu Deep Tissue Massage is unchanged. If you’re not familiar with Ashi, check out our video demonstration here. If you need one of the extra tools from my mental toolbox, no worries, I’ll break that out for you as well. No extra charge.
I’ve added the Ashi-Express for when you need a quick lunch time fix. Available Tuesday – Friday 11:30am – 1:30pm, this 30-minute massage focuses on the back and neck to iron out the kinks and let you get back to your day.
WHY THE CHANGE? It’s actually really simple. I want to offer my clients the benefits of ALL of my services. I don’t want to withhold a technique that can help you because you may not have an extra $15 that day. I don’t want my clients having to do extra math – it’s supposed to be a time to RELAX YOUR BRAIN – math isn’t relaxing (and if it IS relaxing for you, just let me know and I’ll come up with some word problems for you to solve during your next massage session).
Our prices are now all inclusive. You receive your massage, enhancements, AND gratuity for one reasonable rate.
WHY THE CHANGE? Again, it’s all about making life easier. You know how much your session is going to be, easy peasy. I see clients calculating percentages, trying to remember what they tipped last time, and all that thinking undoes all the mental relaxation we’ve just achieved (see note above regarding extra math…). I’ve had clients be SUPER generous and then they find they can’t maintain that level of generosity, so they don’t come in for a massage, which makes me sad. By keeping it simple it makes life easier for all of us. Still want to share the love? Please review me on your favorite site: Yelp!, Facebook, Google…
Prices have been slightly adjusted to better represent the change in services. Pricing is all inclusive:
You may add time to your session for $1 / minute, billed in 15 minute increments (75 minute Integrative Therapy Massage = $95; 90 minute = $110, etc).
Our mobile massage rates have been adjusted to a $125 minimum for a 60 minute session (based on client’s location). Additional time is still billed at $1 / min (15 minute increments). If two people are receiving massages at the same location, the second 60 minute massage will be billed at my studio rate of $80. NOTE: All of our enhancements are not available for mobile massage (such as hot towels, hot stones and cupping) so please chat with me before booking.
WHY SUCH A LARGE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE? I know it seems like a large difference, but here’s the honest, mathematical breakdown:
- Drive time = minimum 20-30 minutes each way. I hate being late so I leave enough time for traffic, weather, bridges, and trains. If I do mobile massage for you, I’m sure you can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been *gasp* tardy. Just for giggles, we’ll include loading and unloading the car, signing into security, etc into this time.
- Set up time = 15 minutes to set up, 15 minutes to tear down.
- The MASSAGE!
When you do the math I think you’ll agree that this is a great value for the convenience of an in-home massage.
I love, love, love bringing massage into the office place. I will come to your office and provide chair massage services on a one-time or recurring basis. My rates are extremely competitive and here’s a hint: The national chair massage companies hire ME to represent them. I’m giving you the opportunity to receive the same services AND save your company money! I am networked with a number of licensed and insured therapists, so I can staff any size event to meet your company’s needs. So go ahead, slip your HR manager my business card… you won’t regret it!
Let me know what you think – Do these changes resonate with with you? I’m always interested to hear what my clients and potential clients need. So don’t hesitate to share! You may email me directly at Erin@SimplyMassageFL.com or call me at 954-380-8829.
