July 27, 2017 – Soothe (www.soothe.com), the world’s largest and fastest-growing on-demand massage service, has officially launched in Tampa Bay and Sarasota.
Soothe brings vetted, certified massage therapists to one’s home, office, or hotel in as little as one hour, in a total of 55 cities across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia.
“We’re pleased to serve the residents of Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Bradenton and surrounding areas, plus their visitors,” says Soothe Founder and CEO Merlin Kauffman. “Everyone deserves to have a massage after a long day at the office or while on vacation, either as a gift to oneself or to another.”
Soothe offers deep tissue, Swedish, sports, and prenatal massage for singles and couples, and operates daily between 8 a.m. and midnight. Massages are fixed-price per person, and Soothe covers tax and gratuity. The prices are: $99 (60 minutes), $145 (90 minutes), and $185 (120 minutes).
“Our rapid growth is really due to the high-quality treatments our massage therapists deliver, combined with flexible work opportunities and higher wages that Soothe provides for massage therapists,” adds Kauffman. “Our therapists earn three to four times more than the industry standard.”
Kauffman created the company in 2013 while at Harvard Business School, a period when he was frequently travelling, and found it difficult to schedule a massage appointment outside standard business hours. What started as a solution to his own problem, however, has grown into a flourishing business.
Clients can book a Soothe massage by downloading the app (soothe.com/app), choosing the type of massage, treatment length, and therapist’s gender. They can also book via soothe.com, or call 800.960.7668 from within the US and Canada. All booking options are available 24/7. Soothe clients can even book the same therapist on future occasions.
Soothe’s global network includes over 10,000 certified and registered massage therapists, each interviewed in-person. Only therapists who meet the requisite level of certification and have a history of customer excellence are accepted into the Soothe network.
