Ok, so we all know that climate change is evident with the insanely hot temperatures post Labor Day! While this is supposed to mark the end of summer for many people across the country. But here in the Los Angeles area, it is even getter hotter. The Indian Summer is raging with hot, dry days and nights that just don't cool down. We want to celebrate the change of seasons, but this change is going in the the wrong direction. This is creating more stress for everyone.
Businesses all over the area are slowing down. This is the time to pay attention to our stress levels even more, watching that inner clock and release old stresses that no longer serve us. In fact, releasing stress is something we can do on a daily basis. Some of us choose meditation, others yoga, hiking in nature or having a glass of wine (or two) to let go of unnecessary drama. From fighting the traffic to get to work while being alert to crazy freeway drivers, or dealing with family issues, these challenges may leave you hunched over your computer with tension building throughout your body.
Like most people, you probably feel the need for a good massage or body treatment, yet are on a tight schedule. Instead of spending your afternoon driving to the nearest spa, Soothe would like to go directly to you. Without the huge expense of a fancy spa, Soothe has launched a convenient massage-on-demand service for spa-loving, wellness-oriented Los Angeles residents.
Thanks to 21st century advancements in mobile technology, you can get the best quality for the best value in the privacy of your own home. This is a great service for freeway-weary over-stressed city-dwellers. Let the spa come to you with the touch of a button or a quick phone call.
"We've made it super convenient for a person to book a spa-quality massage via their mobile phone or computer after working a long day or braving a tough commute, and with as little as 60 minutes advance notice,
" says Merlin Kauffman, Los Angeles-based entrepreneur and founder of Soothe
. Kauffman started her venture after becoming disenchanted with limited operating hours of traditional day spas and advance-notice booking requirements.
"Soothe's uniqueness lies in its ability to connect the client to an available therapist who can quickly come to the client's location and deliver five-star service at an affordable price--we have removed all the hassle for the customer, including the issue of paying the gratuity and taxes which are included. Even guests at hotels can use this service,
" explained Kauffman.
Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability, promote relaxation and well-being, and as a recreational activity. | Photo: |
With this simple online service and mobile app, you can connect to over 300 licensed and insured massage therapists who are skilled in a variety of healing modalities including the basics like Swedish, deep tissue and more. A favorite is the hot stone massage with Sande using the healing elements of aromatherapy and smooth jade stones. The jade stones send healing energy to the areas with the most tension and stuck spots. Her healing hands place pressure on knots and powerfully release the areas. All of the highly skilled and sought-after therapists from Soothe are available to deliver much-needed relief to tired, sore aching muscles and joints.
They even have couples massages offered in 60-, 90- and 120-minute sessions, where appointments are scheduled between the hours of 10 a.m. until midnight every day of the week. Fixed prices range from $99-$169 per person based on time but regardless of the type of massage selected. The service even covers Greater Los Angeles because its therapists are located throughout the city and beyond.
"People love the simplicity of the booking system that offers same-day appointments or beyond with extended operating hours, that's why our customer reviews and ratings are off the charts,
" said Kaufmann explains. "The ease of experiencing this new affordable luxury leaves our clients feeling very soothed and satisfied. Our reviews really speak for themselves.
