When people search for “best spa Cleveland” on Google they are usually trying to find the best place to get massage and/or other spa services. The majority of calls we have gotten over the last 5 years have been people who are seeking out the best massage therapy services in the area.
Know What You Are Looking For
If you are seeking great massage therapy and you truly need some highly-skilled bodywork or help with too much stress, then consider utilizing a smaller entity such as our massage therapy office. Sure, with many spas you may get a nice building and pretty surroundings, but that is only for a few minutes while you are sitting in the waiting area. However, if you need a massage along with a nail, hair, body scrub, pedicure, etc. then a spa is definitely where you will want to book an appointment. If you are looking to have a spa day with 5 of your girlfriends then an area spa will be able to accommodate you much better.
Our office is set up in a spa-like way. We have the most plush, top-of-the-line linens, the most expensive cream oil (which does not stain your clothing), and we have the warmest and most comfortable massage tables. Our massage room is meticulously decorated and our clients say they immediately feel relaxed just by walking into the space. Once on the table clients immediately relax even more because of the wonderful aromatherapy in the room and the whole tranquil feel to the main massage area. Our office was simply created with our clients in mind and every little part of our décor is designed to bring about a sense of relaxation and tranquility.
Know The Area
When we were in massage therapy school, we had more than one professor to warn us to not work for any of the “massage mills” in Northeast Ohio. These are the larger spas that are highly motivated only by money and who do not respect massage therapists for the highly-skilled professionals that they are.
I know – you are saying Donna why are you so NEGATIVE? I am not being negative – I am simply being truthful. We were warned not to work for large spas because they have a tendency to pay very little (between $9 and $15 an hour) and require that their massage therapists perform a ridiculous amount of massages each day. The largest spa in the area tried to hire me for $9 an hour and wanted me to perform 12 massages each day! I kindly declined. Most of those massage therapists (who work for those spas) end up becoming burned out and many leave the field entirely once they get injured from doing too many massages.
But you say – Why do I care? You should because most of those large spas compete like crazy to grab newbie massage therapists right out of school. Why? Because they know that most of them are desperate and just want to work SOMEWHERE and they snatch them up before they find greener pastures somewhere else. The reason they do this is because they know they can charge say $90 for a massage and pay their therapist only $9 or $13 an hour and the spa is keeping the rest! Hiring newbies pads their bottom line.
I do not know what happens in other cities, but here in the Cleveland, Ohio area, most of the spas I have visited (because I get a LOT of massage) have newbies all over the place. Newbies tend to give newbie massages and quite frankly, if I am paying PREMIUM PRICES I want a seasoned massage therapist! It has been a very rare occasion for me to find a seasoned, highly-skilled massage professional still working for a spa. Most have moved on to their own private practice or they have found other ways to work without having to work for a spa.
Bottom line – If you want to find the best therapists in town, you might do better not seeking out a spa. Look for massage therapists in private practice or look for massage offices and clinics.
What We Offer
We serve a lot of high-end clients who travel all over the world. Part of this is because I head up the massage services at a prominent country club around the corner from our office. More than one client has made the comment that our massages easily rival what they have seen in fine resorts. Now that is a real compliment because that is EXACTLY what my goal was when I left massage school. I wanted to create different types of sessions that would remind clients of being on vacation. I wanted our massages to have a resort-like, highly pampering quality to them and now they do. We use the best linens, the best oils, the most exquisite spa music, incredible aromatherapy, and the best client comforts.
