Stressed out this summer? Get a massage at the touch of a button. A new app blissfully called “MassageNow” was designed and developed by a startup called Locality and it allows customers to book a massage, facial or waxing appointment at a high-end spa with just a few hours notice and usually at 20%-40% off the price.
MassageNow works to find unused massages, facials, or waxes at nearby spas in San Francisco and New York, and fills them up at a discounted rate. Kind of like Travelocity.com, but for massages. For example, through the app “Massage Mondays” offer massages that cost only $50 (plus tip), far below the usual $80 to $120 an hour rate. They also have “Facial Fridays” at $45 and “Waxing Wednesdays” at $25.
MassageNow also announced their newest feature allowing users to pick where they want to get their “Namaste On.” When users log into the app or onto the site (www.massagenow.co), they will now be able to select their exact same-day booking massage experience – allowing them to choose what spa and location works best for them, along with the description and user ratings of the establishment before they book. One can also filter appointments by the type of massage, the massage duration, and the therapists gender.
The team at Locality only picks the best massage spas on Yelp with four-star ratings or better – so you know they’ve done their homework.
They state on their iTunes app page, “We work with the top spas in the city and check for cleanliness, ambiance, and massage quality. These are all high-quality places, at a range of price points from standard to luxury to fit your mood.” And according to Tech Crunch, “If the launch of MassageNow goes well in San Francisco, you can expect the company to expand to more markets over time, and possibly even other verticals. That could mean discounted on-demand haircuts, or maybe manicures, or something similar. For Locality, it’s all about trying new ways of connecting consumers with local businesses.”
