Is a Swedish massage not everything you need or want from your massage? Feel like you need something more? You should look at all of your add-on options.
At Clary Sage College we offer many ways to customize your massage to fit your needs. Some of our add-ons can be done within the time of your massage like deep tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy cream. Others such as a scalp massage, deluxe hand massage, or deluxe foot massage add on 10 minutes each to your time, but are well worth it.
The benefits of receiving any of these add-ons varies depending on what result you are looking for. If you need work on your deep muscles, but pressure just won’t cut it, deep tissue and hot stone add-ons would be great. But what if you are on your feet all day and just want to relax? How about some aromatherapy cream with a foot add-on?
Between our 30, 60, and 90 minute time options and our 6 add-on options we have 54 possible massages. And that’s just if you add them 1 at a time! Think about the infinite possibilities… It’s mind boggling!
As a massage therapist helping your client to customize their massage can make all the difference. A client is more likely to come back if you not only give them a great massage, but also show them that you care about their well-being. Giving them the option of creating a unique experience each time could make them want to try them all!
As either a client or a therapist there are many combinations that work for anyone. During your interview time, be sure to discuss what the outcome of the massage needs to be. This will help to narrow down any extra options and tailor the session to fit everyone’s needs.
Massage add-ons bring variety and uniqueness to any massage. And since variety is the spice of life, live on!
