About The Cost of Couples Massage
Just like with Deep Tissue or Swedish massage the cost of a couples massage can vary from one Massage Therapist to the next. Typical charges for such services can range from $140 to $200. Since there are 2 people receiving the massage the cost of the package increases accordingly.
Tipping Your Couples Massage Therapists
Typically speaking Massage Therapists should receive a 15 to 20 percent gratuity for their services rendered. In general – deep tissue massage expense can range from $70 to $90 per hour. Based on the above numbers you should expect to tip between $12 and $18 for services rendered from your Massage Therapist.
Age Requirements In Couples Massage?
While most might think that a couples massage is between a couple it is not necessarily the case. We have seen this relate to a parent-child combination too. If a child is receiving the massage then it is necessary for them to be a consent form signed. Beyond that, the actual age of the person receiving the massage really does not matter.
