Have Massage; Will Travel

Be Soothed with an on-demand therapist for work or home.

Generally, your visits to the spa are relegated to special occasions or days when you have an abundance of time—which means basically never. But with the launch of Soothe in Vancouver, you’ll be basking in an aromatherapy haze in no time. Or just getting some basic pulled-neck-maintenance done before this afternoon’s meeting. Previously only available in the U.S., Soothe is a same-day, massage-on-demand service that makes its first foray into Canada today with its Vancouver launch. Like the Uber of spas, just download the app and a licensed, vetted, certified massage therapist arrives at your home, office or hotel room (in as little as 60 minutes). Services include Swedish, deep tissue, sports and couples massage in treatment lengths of 60/90/120 minutes for a fixed fee that includes gratuity and taxes ($99/$139/$169). Therapists set up their portable massage tables for you from 8 a.m. to midnight, but they can be booked 24/7 via the app, online, or, for the Luddite-inclined, by phone at 1-800-960-7668.

And there’s a bonus: we scored you, dear reader, a $30-off discount when you enter the code VANMAG30. Happy blissing. Soothe.com
