Frequently Asked Questions


Soothe allows you to order a five-star massage to your home, hotel, office, or event in as little as an hour. We match your massage request with a vetted, certified massage therapist available in your area at the specified time. At your appointment time, a therapist will arrive at your door with massage table, fresh linens, lotions, oils, and music to ensure a relaxing massage. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your massage.

Soothe currently offers deep tissue, Swedish, sports, and prenatal massage. Any of these modalities can be performed as a couples massage, either with two massage therapists performing simultaneous massage or one therapists performing massage one after another.Soothe also offers chair and table massage delivered to your office or event with Soothe at Work and Soothe Events.

We will match you with the highest quality massage therapist available at the time specified. You have the option to choose a male or female therapist if you have a preference, but are not able to select the exact therapist that you’d like.

We’re very careful about the massage therapists we select to join the Soothe network. We interview all of our therapists in person and make sure they are fully licensed and insured in their state of practice. We accept only the highest quality therapists with a history of excellence in customer satisfaction.

In most states the process to become a certified massage therapist (CMT) requires applicants to successfully pass background checks conducted by a state investigator, before being deemed able to safely work with the public. All Soothe massage therapists have passed these government sponsored certification measures. In order to become a CMT, a therapist must also complete a minimum of 500 hours of practical training, but some states require as much as 1,000 hours.

All Soothe massage therapists have the highest level of integrity and professionalism. In return, we expect all clients to reciprocate the same level of respect and conduct.
(In Canada, all of our therapists are experienced professionals, however, not all are RMTs)

Yes, absolutely! After your first massage with a Soothe massage therapist, you will be given the option to re-book with the same therapist. Keep in mind, however, we cannot guarantee that the same therapist will be available at the time you request.

Soothe takes the stress out of booking a massage and is able to function because of the honor system. If you enjoy massages, we hope that you will do your part in keeping our eco-system intact. We strongly encourage our clients to use Soothe exclusively for all of their massage needs.

Feel free to undress to your level of comfort. If you’d prefer to leave on undergarments, be our guest! If you feel more comfortable nude, you may undress completely and position your body under the sheet. Therapists are trained to properly drape your body to protect your modesty and theirs.

When booking, we ask that you provide detailed parking information. If our therapist is unable to find free parking, or none is available in your area, you will be expected to reimburse the therapist for any parking costs incurred.

In the United States, Soothe does not accept insurance as a form of payment. However, some insurance companies will allow clients to self-claim and file for reimbursement. In Ontario, Canada, customers who take an appointment with a Registered Massage Therapist will be issued a receipt that can be submitted to insurance for reimbursement. British Columbia coming soon!

There’s no need for your own massage table. Our therapists bring the massage table, clean sheets, oils, and music to create the full massage experience.
