One of my favorite things in life is to de-stress with a relaxing massage. But sometimes, a massage can be downright stress-inducing. At many popular spa/salons, massage appointments can book up pretty far in advance – so you have to schedule weeks, even months, ahead of time. And if something comes up and you have to reschedule, well, you get the picture. Getting to your massage can be stressful if you live a good distance from the spa and/or take public transportation. And then after your massage, there’s only a finite time you can sit there in a robe and slippers before it’s time to hit the road, Jack. First world problems, I know.
But what if I told you that there’s a service that provides massages without all of the hassle – in the comfort of your own home?
Soothe is a same-day, massage-on-demand service that delivers a licensed, vetted and certified massage therapist to your home, office or hotel room, with as little as 60 minutes advance notice. Services include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Prenatal and Couples massage. Appointments are offered between 8 a.m. and midnight every day of the week, with fixed prices of $99 (60 minute), $139 (90 minute), and $169 (120 minute) per person, regardless of the type of massage selected. And gratuity is included!

I’m not sure what kind of dummy would turn down a complimentary rub down, so I said yes. And let me tell you – the experience was stress-free from start to finish. (more…)
