For some people, money is one of the biggest obstacles to getting a regular massage. There, I said it. We don’t like to talk about money, it’s supposed to be a private issue. But I’m addressing it head-on. Regular massage is a considerable budget item, and it’s important to acknowledge that.
I know this because
- I walk the walk and get regular massages.
- I love to budget my finances. While it is important for me to get regular massages for my own health and wellbeing, if I don’t budget for it, it doesn’t happen.
But if I expect you to jiggle the numbers and budget for a massage every week, month, or quarter, it’s my job to tell you what you’re buying.
So here it is, what you get from a 1 hour, $100 massage.
Clarity in Pricing
What I charge is clearly listed here www.creatingbalancetherapies.com
No hidden costs, you pay the listed price. That’s it. All prices include GST and private health rebates may apply for certain treatments.
A Full Hour.
1 hour = 60 minutes. The clock doesn’t start until you walk in the treatment room. We allow 15 minutes between clients so we aren’t rushing you in and out, and we can sometimes sneak in a couple of extra minutes!
That’s not the case for every business, many 1 hour bookings are only 50-55 minutes of time in the room.
At Creating Balance, 30, 60, and 90 minute treatments last exactly as long as indicated. (Unless you’re late, then we may have to adjust accordingly so we don’t inconvenience the next client)
Ease of Scheduling
Scheduling tends to be the second biggest obstacle to getting a regular massage. We never think of scheduling massage at a time that is actually convenient to call.
I love it when my clients can book in for their preferred day or time.
That’s why I offer all my clients the ease of being able to book online, at any time, anywhere they are.
If you don’t see a time that works for you (especially if you are trying to book a 90 minute treatment) please call 0411 022 131, I can even put you on the waitlist. If a time slot does come available I can easily and quickly refer to my waitlist to see who is next.
For 1 hour, you are the superstar. You are the reason we’re in the room. Want me to spend the full hour on your neck and shoulders? Sure. Or longer on a head massage at the end? Absolutely! I tailor all massages to my client’s needs.
You get our full attention. No phone. No demands. Just you.
I love the treatments I offer and most importantly I love being able to offer these treatments in a calming and peaceful environment. Within this peaceful sanctuary, I have THE MOST COMFIEST massage table in Broome, clean towels, candles, oils, massage cups and needles and relaxing music that I incorporate to make your treatment a special.
I’ve had multiple years of practice and hours of continuing education. They were all just prep for your massage.
To get you the best results I do:
- Dry Needling
- Myofascial cupping & techniques
- Ka Huna & Lomi Lomi massage
- Pregnancy massage
I won’t practice any techniques that are unsafe for you and your health condition. These are called contraindications. And I won’t mess around with them.
The downside here is that I may turn you away, but that’s rare. As in, it’s only happened a couple of times. We can usually find a technique that is safe and effective for your situation.
In Australia, you do not need a qualification to call yourself a massage therapist.
There are plenty of people out there working as a “massage therapist” with little to ZERO training.
I am passionate about getting you results. I am fully qualified with a Diploma Remedial Massage which is a 12-18 month full-time course requiring a minimum of 200 hours physical massage training in a supervised student clinic. To be eligible to provide Private Health Rebates, I also have to be registered with a Massage Association, regularly update my 1st Aid and be insured.
On top of that every year I am required to maintain my membership through Continuous Education or professional development. This is when I disappear from the treatment room for a long weekend or a week to learn a new technique that can benefit you.
A massage with me gets you connections with all the practitioners I know. And that’s a lot of people. If massage isn’t helping you, I’ll help you find the right person to help you.
I only use the best products on your skin. You won’t leave my treatment room feeling slimy or drenched in oil. You won’t break out from a cheap fragrance or preservative.
In my treatments, I use high-quality massage oil and mixed with
a blend of essential oils that are great for warming and relaxing the muscles.
I also use:
- Fisiocrem that contains Arnica for its anti-inflammatory properties,
- Karma Rub, which is natural liquid magnesium and AMAZING for releasing muscles tension.
- Australian Bush Flower Essence Space Clearing to awaken the senses and your energy after your treatment.
You get to support a small local business
Creating Balance is just me! I am the therapist, the admin, marketing, finances and HR. No conglomerate. No fancy management structure or corporate set up. Just a little business owner, paying taxes, making a living, participating in the same communities that we serve. There are fewer and fewer businesses that can stay afloat in an era of big box stores and Amazon. When you pay $100 for a massage, you can be certain that the money is staying in the local economy.
All that, from a 1 hour massage.
You can’t put a price on your health, but you can definitely budget and plan for your massage. You have the choice to choose where and who you want to take care of you on the table. Knowing what is incorporated in your 1 hour massage is important for making the right choices for you.
