Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.

Plus people walking out with smiles saying "I feel so much better" is a tip in itself.

I don't expect my clients to tip me. But its nice when they do.

but that is at a spa where they take 60% of my money PLUS product charge PLUS a fee if you use the credit card machine
I'm not a massage therapist - just a client who goes for massages every two weeks at a local day spa.
I am so glad you brought up this subejct. I always leave a tip on the table in the room where I receive my massage for two reasons: Less than honest personnel at the front desk and the fact that I feel that it is no one's business how much the massage therapist receives for a tip. Maybe it's not proper etiquette, but I feel better knowing that my MT gets his tip!
