The truth is, if you want to stay happy, healthy, and full of vitality for longer, you can’t afford NOT to fit regular massage therapy sessions into your schedule. This is all about why you can’t afford NOT to get a massage.

Massage might have a reputation for being something that is a luxury. It’s a treat—a fluffy afternoon in a spa with aromatherapy candles and whale music. But that’s not what massage is all about. Massage is healing, reviving, and relaxing, and in fact, it can save you a whole lot more money than it costs you.

Great massage therapy has been proven to treat the symptoms of conditions as diverse as depression, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and MS. According to the Touch Research Institute, over 100 separate studies into massage and its many benefits.

Even if you’re not managing a particular health condition, you still need a massage in your life. It can help you if you’re an athlete or enjoy a workout. Massage can help keep your joints and muscles supple so that you’re less prone to injury. It’s great for dealing with stress, even if you’re not actually depressed. It also improves immunity and sleep, making you more present and productive at work.

How Expensive Is Massage, Really?

According to recent figures, the average massage session costs about $75 for 45 minutes. That’s about the same as a tank of gas and an oil change, erring on the cheaper side. The average price for a trip to the doctor, spending approximately 10 minutes with a doctor – is $68 (without insurance). Although most insurance companies aren’t enlightened enough to cover massage, there’s no arguing that massage DOES play a big part in injury and disease prevention. Experts know that a regular massage session will help to keep your body healthy. But hey! We value our regular customers. That’s why we have a membership package to choose from.
