Why a Massage Therapist From a Massage Spa is Better Than a Freelancer
Patrons of massage spas (particularly the newbies) think that hiring a freelance massage therapist is economical because this option takes out the middleman, which in this case is the spa. Without the middleman, clients presume that they will be paying a lesser rate. While there is some truth to this, it is not always the case. What’s worse, clients could be at risk of being harmed or scammed. We definitely don’t want this happening.
This blog post enumerates why it is more beneficial to get a massage therapist from a “reputable massage spa” instead of getting a freelancer. But first, let’s define what we mean by a reputable massage spa.
To be considered “reputable”, the spa should:
- Have a physical business or office address;
- Be registered to the proper government agencies such as SEC, DTI, LGUs, BIR etc. (documents pertinent to its registration must be prominently displayed in the spa as required by law);
- Have been operating for some time (rule of thumb: at least a month);
- Have online presence such as website and social media profiles.
That being said, here are the benefits of getting a masseur or a masseuse directly from a massage spa regardless of whether the massage is rendered in the spa or in the comforts of your home, hotel, apartment, or condo.
1. Better quality of service.
Therapists employed by a reputable massage spa are trained and experienced. They are not only accountable to their clients, but more so, to the spa that employs them. With this reason alone, clients have a better chance of experiencing a better service as opposed to hiring a freelance massage therapist.
2. Better security.
In the event that the masseur or masseuse caused damages or has failed to deliver the massage service, the client may hold the massage establishment primarily liable for being the employer. Hiring a freelancer doesn’t give you the same safety nets.
3. Better rates.
This sounds counter-intuitive but there is a good reason why the rates quoted by a massage spa is better. Prices quoted by spas are generally standardized. In other words, their rates remain the same for all customers regardless of the therapist assigned to you. With freelance therapists, their fees may vary, depending on certain circumstances such as demand, time, and disposition of the client. Freelance therapists have a broad discretion when quoting – sometimes unreasonably exorbitant.
4. Better transaction.
Payment can be tricky when you choose a freelancer. Usually, freelancers will require their clients to make 10-50% upfront payment to protect themselves from bogus clients. Clients however are at a losing end because they have no assurance that the therapist is not a fraud. With reputable spas, the only advanced payment you may be asked to settle in advanced is the fare of the therapist if it’s an outcall massage service. You could opt to arrange for the transportation of the therapist yourself or pay the transportation cost to the spa. Payment may be conveniently done through bank transfer, e-wallet, or credit/debit cards.
