Ways to Fit Regular Massage or Facial into Your Budget
We all have to take care of our budgets these days. And it seems like there’s a never-ending list of things getting in the way of you and your massage treatments. We could find ways to fit regular massage into your budget.
Many of us, women especially, seem to spend so much time worrying about and taking care of everyone else. But do you remember when do you make an active decision to put your own wellbeing first? If you feel guilty about spending money on expensive treatments and massage therapy, maybe it’s time to prioritize yourself.
Making time for a massage isn’t really a luxury. It’s necessary to keep yourself in tip-top mental, physical, and emotional health. That hour of blissful you-time helps to replenish your energy stocks and gives you an extra boost that doesn’t just make you feel good. It also enables you to be more present for the people who need you. It is a necessity, so better find ways to fit massage into your budget.
All very well, but what if you really struggle to find the cash? Here are a few ideas for ways to get that extra cash together and give yourself some TLC.
Shop around and do your research
If you live in a small town or village with only one massage center or clinic, look further. It’s a good idea to look further afield and see any deals at city massage centers. If many people offer massage services in one area, you could find that some of them will lower their rates because they need to stay competitive. You’re also more likely to find massage therapists who give lower rates that fit into your budget to attract lower-income clients in bigger towns and cities.
Use prepaid Packages and Membership options.
Loyalty cards and memberships are a big thing right now. So before you book, check out a massage center website and see what they have on offer for regular clients. Do they offer a discount for members or a buy two, get one free deal?
Like for like?
If you have skills you can share and know a massage therapist, why not offer swap services? You could even offer to mind their kids, give them a lift or do a bit of DIY in their home to exchange a massage session. Win-win!
Ask for gift cards
Your birthday is coming, or Christmas is just around the corner. Some massage clinics offer gift certificates for their service or treatment. Tell your friends and family that instead of things you don’t need, you’d prefer one for a massage treatment. Or for friends to club together and buy you a session rather than just another bottle of wine or box of candy?
Go for smaller sessions.
You don’t necessarily need to have the full hour to get the benefit of a massage. You could have a back, neck, and shoulder massage taking 20 minutes or so, or a shorter Indian Head Massage treatment, perhaps?
Get them into the workplace.
Many massage centers are looking at ways to get extra clients. Employers like to offer perks to keep staff happy, so why not suggest that your office approaches a local massage business and asks them if they would like to provide desk massages?
Schedule a massage at a bodywork school.
Students need to practice, and here’s where you could get a great deal on a massage that will fit your budget. If you’re happy to let a supervised student practice their art on you, you could get yourself a fantastic deal on the treatment as well as a really great massage…
Re-evaluate your bills
If you still can’t stretch to it, find extra money by going through your bills and seeing where you can make a saving. Do you need the extra channels on your cable package?
Give up your latte
It’s a cliché, but how much do you spend on Starbucks every week? Work it out and resolve to give the coffee shop a miss until you have enough saved for the massage you’re craving. Massage is way better for you than caffeine.
We offer online gift cards, different occasion freebies, and more. Would you please book an appointment over the phone or on our website and choose a massage session that will surely fit into your budget?
