Caught in major I-95 traffic on the way to your 5:30pm massage? Talk about stressful. That, however, can now be avoided with Soothe, a massage-on-demand service that launched this week in Miami. How does it work? Once you download the iOS app or book on Soothe's website, you can call upon one of their 50 massage therapists in South Florida to pamper you at your home, office, or anywhere else you happen to be with as little as a one-hour advanced notice.
Currently the service is available in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach and runs as late as 10pm which gives you ample time to cook, clean and settle into your home before settling even more deeply into a Swedish, deep tissue, sports or couple's massage. What's even better, is that they plan to extend servicing until 12pm in the near future. And they even work on holidays. Merry Christmas, folks.
The prices aren't shabby at all either. 60, 90 or 120-minute massages fall between $99 and $169, and gratuity is already included. Heck, you could even request the gender of your therapist, which is certified awesome Soothe is currently available in Los Angeles and South Florida, however it will soon be available in Phoenix, Scottsdale, San Francisco and New York City. Racked LA calls it the "Uber of massages," however the thought of avoiding Miami's bumper to bumper race makes it that much better.
