Offices and Spas Around the City Are Getting Too Many Calls for Couples Massage!

massage therapists shortage

OUR OFFICE AND OTHERS ARE BEING INUNDATED WITH CALLS FOR COUPLES MASSAGE!!  When I attempt to offer MY help and even explain what is going on, I generally get ghosted…

Clients in other cities are more flexible (other massage therapists say so) and they get in their massage sessions.  Clients here in Northeast Ohio tend to only want what they want.  Many will end up with no massage…

Please try to understand that if you really want to get massage, you should be more flexible about how you get in your sessions…

A Serious Nationwide Shortage

LOOK – THERE IS A NATIONWIDE SHORTAGE OF MASSAGE THERAPISTS. Nationwide, spas alone are short 45,000 therapists! This is not even counting private massage practices, clinics, and chiropractic offices!!!

Here in the Cleveland, Ohio area – at least 8 massage schools closed PERMANENTLY and that was PRE-COVID!

What this means is new massage therapists are not being churned out regularly like before. So, spas, Massage Envy and Hand and Stone, massage practices, clinics, etc. are ALL experiencing shortages of licensed massage therapists. When callers ask if they have openings, they pretty much just say no, rather than telling you they don’t have enough therapists.

You Need to Know the Truth

I want potential clients to be informed of what is going on. YOU DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH.

Covid-19 created a new normal for the massage therapy industry. Many schools closed permanently nationwide and a whole lot of massage therapists left the field.

Clients Need To Adjust By Being More Flexible

Because of all of these things – CLIENTS NEED TO BE MORE FLEXIBLE!

First, you should NOT be calling for last minute openings if you need couple massage.

Secondly, if a place can do two sessions back-to-back or in two different rooms you should consider doing it that way.

Lastly, if you need a particular date, and other places are booked, but you find a therapist who can work on you, one person at a time, you should consider that.

BE FLEXIBLE and rather than giving up and not getting worked on, you can still get your wonderful massages!

Our Option

We used to be number 1 in the area for couple massage.  As of April of 2022, that has changed.  Due to both of my long-time therapists finally retiring, it is just me now.  However, because I know that there is a severe shortage, I try to help out with couples.


I can schedule up to two couples per week.  I have to devote the rest of my time to all the single sessions that I do.  I have many couples who simply prefer for only me to work on them.  I also have many couples who came to us before the change and they still prefer to come to me.

When a couple comes in, I try to make it fun for them.  I work on one person then 15 minutes later, I work on the other person.  Many of my couples bring in their own white wine to enjoy.  While one person is on the table, the other person generally sits in the adjacent room in a nice, comfy chair and relaxes and some even come into the treatment room to observe, talk, or just to give their companion a kiss!  Many of my couples even bring in their favorite white wine or champagne.

I Offer A Private Couple Massage Training

If you really want to do something fun together, I offer an in-person, couples massage training.  In the 3 hour training, you both get worked on at least 30 minutes and you get to learn advanced techniques for working on each other.  For more info CLICK HERE.

Couple to me is any two people who want to come in together.  So this can be a romantic couple or mother/daughter, co-workers, etc.

Advantages of Booking With Me

There are great advantages to booking with me, provided I have openings:

  • You save $ by coming in together rather than booking separately
  • You both get a highly-skilled master therapist who has over 12 years experience
  • You both get to experience my hot stone, deep tissue foot massage
  • You get a therapist who is great at introducing clients to their very first massage
  • You will get more flexible booking options which include some weekend and evening slots
  • If you are celebrating a special occasion, you have the option of more romantic music collections

How to Book

To book your session, simply call or text Donna at 216-339-3401.  It is best not to wait to the last minute since only two couples per week are booked.
