Los Angeles—After much anticipation, Soothe, the world’s largest and fastest-growing on-demand massage service, has arrived in Palm Springs and Inland Empire.
This means Soothe now operates in 48 cities across the United States, Canada, and the U.K., Soothe brings vetted, certified massage therapists to customers’ home, office, or hotel in as little as one hour. The company plans to expand to 50 cities by the year’s end.
“Everyone deserves to have a massage after a long day at the office or while on vacation, either as a gift to oneself or another,” says Soothe’s Founder and CEO Merlin Kauffman. “We’re pleased to offer that service to residents of Palm Springs, Inland Empire and their visitors.”
Soothe offers on-demand deep tissue, Swedish, sports, and prenatal massages daily between the hours of 8 am and midnight. All modalities can also be performed as a couples’ massage. Massages are fixed-price per person, and Soothe covers tax and gratuity. The prices are: $99 (60 minutes), $139 (90 minutes), and $169 (120 minutes). Soothe clients can also re-book the same therapist on future occasions.
The convenience of Soothe massage has led some Hollywood celebrities to call it "the Uber of massage" therapy. See Sharon Stone talk Soothe on James Corden's Late Late Show at
“Our growth is really due to the experience our massage therapists deliver,” adds Kauffman. “They provide spa-quality treatments without the hassle of finding parking or dealing with traffic. In addition, our massage therapists earn three to four times more than the industry standard. Soothe is extremely proud to provide flexible work opportunities for therapists.”
Kauffman created the company in 2013 while at Harvard Business School, a period when he was frequently traveling, 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 with the number of certified massage therapists on the platform having more than doubled since last year.
Soothe currently has a network of over 7,000 certified massage therapists globally. All of Soothe’s massage therapists have been interviewed in-person and only therapists, who meet the requisite level of certification and have a history of customer excellence, are accepted into the Soothe network.
