Save and explore with Massage First
Massage First is a program that gives you the ability to try out various therapists and different techniques at a lesser cost. This program can also allow people to add massage back into their recovering budgets... or for those of you who already factor massage into your budget, save a little on something you already know and love.
On the first day of each month, anyone can call to book (or book online) one or more massages at the rate of $55/hr. You may book as many sessions as you'd like so long as you pay for them on the first of the month.
Example: Mrs. Smith calls (or books online) on September 1st to schedule 1-hour massage appointments for Sept. 5th, and 28th and the 4th and 10th of the following month. Mrs. Smith pays for all four appointments for $220 on the first of the month - Massage First.
With big savings, comes a lil fine print:
- Please be responsible with your calendar. We cannot offer rescheduling, cancellations or refunds for massage first appointments.
- If you cannot make it due to sudden changes in your schedule, please pay it forward by giving your massage to a friend!
- Traveling requires a bit more work (and cost). We cannot offer house calls or location requests for massage first appointments.
