Why is massage expensive?

Why is massage so expensive?

If you're not self employed, it's hard to understand why someone can appear to earn such a high hourly rate. Here are some reasons for the price for many massage therapists:

  • If we don't work, we don't get paid. There's no such thing as a paid vacation, sick day or holiday.
  • Being self employed, there are no 401K plans, dental, vision or health insurance included.
  • Rent, utilities, phone, website, internet access, online booking, gift certificates, business cards and brochures are regular expenses that come out of our wages.
  • Any responsible LMT will have liability insurance, which costs several hundred dollars per year.
  • Continuing education is required--many professional memberships or licensing boards require 48 hours every 4 years, most of which is very pricey. (Not to mention that we often have travel expenses included).
  • Licensing fees are paid to licensing boards, typically every 2 years.
  • Any advertising done is paid out of pocket by the massage therapist.


One would hope that experience and training would figure into the rate-setting process, but in my experience it is more market forces that drive pricing. One would expect that a newly licensed massage therapist should charge less than one who has had years of experience and many additional hours of continuing education. However, consumers get it in their head that a massage costs $XX in their town, and so anyone, regardless of their ability, training, and experience can charge that much.

I have been a massage therapist since January 15, 1999, have had many hours of continuing education and thousands of hours with clients. Untold number of hours have been spent training to become an authorized instructor for Ashiatsu and Bamboo-fusion. However, as a budget conscious mother of 8, I charge what I consider to be a fair rate. If you are in pain and are in dire need of a therapeutic massage but cannot afford it, please consider asking about a sliding scale
