Since our inception, the massage industry has changed tremendously! A decade ago when we posted an opening for a massage therapist, we would receive over 20 resumes from strong candidates. Unfortunately, today, we generally get a handful of resumes and many do not have the experience or quality of touch necessary to work at The Wellness Center. This is certainly a big indicator of how the industry has changed over the years and how important it is for us to retain our highly skilled therapists and ensure their longevity in the industry.
I am proud that we have created a safe, thriving and desirable place for therapists to practice. Over half of our therapists have been with us for 3 or more years and about a quarter of them have been with us 6+ years! This is a huge feat in the massage industry, where typically the burnout rate is high and the average massage therapist only lasts a couple of years in the business. The physical and emotional demands on a therapist are strenuous, therefore, the proper equipment, training and down-time is a must! We understand this and have created an environment that honors these needs.
Where does this all lead? We know that you value high-quality massages and your patronage demonstrates your awareness that a great therapist in a great setting means all the difference to your health and healing journey. This focus, coupled with the increasing costs of doing business, means our massage prices need to change.
Effective, August 15th, 2018 prices will be increasing.
Our regular rate for a 60 minute massage (which has always and will always be a full 60 minutes of hands on bodywork) will become $109.
Our One Hour Monthly Massage Membership Plan will be $84 per month benefits below:
- Receive one pre-paid massage with your monthly membership fee
- Additional 1.0 hr member massages will be $79; 1.5 hr member massages will be $118
- One hour massage gift cards for friends and family: $99
Pricing changes are never fun, but I can confidently say that we are still the “best” deal in town for the caliber of therapeutic massage we offer and for the amount hands-on time during each session.
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our management team: myself, Kris Wood, Director or Yosevine Heintz, Assistant Director.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon!
