If you live in, or are visiting San Francisco or New York, some last minute r&r is just a few clicks away. With the app MassageNow, you can book a same-day massage, facial or waxing appointment, and if that doesn’t sound good already, the rates are discounted by 20%-40%! The spas themselves are listed using geo-location technology and categorized as well, ranked as Boutique, Standard, Luxe, and Upscale so you know a bit more about the type of spa and service you’re in for and the cost, which comes in handy if you are unfamiliar with the location.
Since the app service has the word “massage” in it, I figured my first experience should probably be a massage, which I booked about two hours from my appointment time, feeling particularly sore and beat up that day from a seven-hour drive the day before. The cost of the service, tax, and gratuity were all taken care of at the booking of the massage via MassageNow, which made arriving and leaving so much faster, and easier than usual. I went to a spa by my office that I had visited before so that I had a base of comparison for my experience, and I was treated no different than a regular client, with the added bonus of not having to dig through my bag for my credit card after having a super relaxing experience.
Sometimes wanting to get a massage or facial is a spontaneous thing, and why not use a service that saves you money and makes paying ultra convenient for you, especially since you can’t always tip on a credit card?
Full Disclosure: MassageNow gave Fashion Pulse Daily a complimentary service in order to test the app.
