As demonstrated by NCLA's new mani wrap app, Kate Bosworth's Shazam of fashion, DTLA's Fashion District navigator and Reissued's virtual flea market, convenience is key for today's consumer. The latest company to join the movement is Soothe, a new massage-on-demand service that recently launched in LA and will soon be available in Orange County, San Francisco, Miami and Phoenix.
Poised to be the Uber for massages, Soothe can honor a same-day at-home or at-office massage with as little as 60 minutes advance notice (they're open until midnight!), thanks to its generous roster of 300 massage therapists located all over Los Angeles. Services start at $99 and include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports and Couples massages for 60, 90 or 120 minutes. Just like Uber, the price already includes gratuity and taxes. Unlike Uber, you can select your therapist's gender.
Ready to relax? Book a massage online here, by toll-free number at 1-800-960-7668 or via the Soothe iOS app here. Score $20 off your first massage with promo code RACKED20!
