Massages are a great way to relieve stress and relax. However, the cost of going to a traditional massage parlor or therapist can be quite costly. Since most people are trying to save money in this economy, you might think that having a massage is out of the question and beyond your budget. However, you can still find some great, low-cost methods of getting the treatment you need.
Check your area to see if there are any schools that train massage therapists. You might be able to find students at the school who need to practice on the general public in order to gain their license. Many times, students will often offer free, or very low-cost, massages. If you remain a consistent customer to the student, you may be able to receive the same discount when they become a professional masseuse.
Another method is finding a massage workshop in your area. You can attend the workshop with your significant other and learn some of the basics. Although this may cost $200 to $300, the price will pay for itself since you and your spouse will now be able to give one another massages.
Also, many chains, like Massage Envy, are nationwide and offer discounts, like a $40 one-hour massage on your first visit. Each location is different, and offer various deals throughout the year.
If you are a professional, or you have products for sale, you might be able to work out a deal with a local massage therapist. You can trade goods or services for a massage, or even get discounts if you sign up for a certain number of sessions.
