I have a saying: Time never passes faster than it does on a massage table. Well, Soothe is making it even easier to treat yourself to some home-delivered bliss in the way of a massage—in your own room! In our fast-paced world, we very rarely have time to slow down and take care of ourselves. You say you don’t have time to go get massage? They are coming to you. This idea was born from a business traveler who wished he could get a massage when he finished traveling for the day but knew he couldn’t get into a spa at such late notice.

After getting back to the gym this month (like everyone else), I was treated to an hour sports massage by one of the best massage therapists, Jennifer. With the beauty of technology, she had soft music coupled with the sound of a water fountain coming out of her iPhone hooked up to a speaker. My bedroom was immediately transformed into a spa!

From their website or app, you can choose from 60, 90 or 120- minute massages, varying types such as Swedish, deep tissue, couples, sports, and prepare for bliss. The massage therapists are fully certified and vetted and you can choose from male or female. This is a fabulous treat for yourself, but is also a wonderful gift to give to someone for a myriad of reasons: upcoming Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, new mom, even for your favorite athlete after their race. And, because there’s no overhead, the pricing is similar to what you’d pay at a spa for that same service, except you don’t have to go anywhere and there’s no tipping.

More reasons to love Soothe:

  • They only employ the most capable and experienced massage therapists.
  • It’s simple to re-book the same therapist if you enjoy your previous massage.
  • It’s available 7 days/week including holidays: 8 am-midnight.
  • No need to tip- it’s built into the fee ($99 for an hour; $139 for 90 minutes).
  • You can get a therapist with as little as one hour notice.
  • You can find great discounts for as much as $30 off your first massage.
  • They’ve recently added pre-natal massages as well.

Treat yourself, your spouse (did I mention Valentine’s Day?) or a friend who needs it.
