Etiquette Question - Solve this here debate.

I bought myself this Groupon and plan on using it while 
Louis takes his little staycation from work. (There's also going to be daytime wine drinking.)

60-Minute Relaxation Massage with Aromatherapy or a 60-Minute Hot-Stone Massage 


In discussing this with my spouse we seem to disagree on the whole "what to tip" thing. Are these professionals tipped like hairdressers or would it be like shaking a $20 into a physical therapist's hand? Weigh in.

Yes! You absolutely tip, just like you would a hairdresser.

Yes, tipping is encouraged. I normally tip $15 if it's a 60 min. Massage. That being said, it's been over a yr since my last massage...I think I need one REAL soon! ;) enjoy, Love! You deserve it!

I've gotten a lot of "I don't know! Tell me when you find outs!" on Twitter. I don't feel so silly now :)

Amanda Jennings said...

Yes, you tip. I usually give $20 for an hour massage.

Absolutely. You tip them. 20%.

Jenni said...

From someone who has worked in that profession: yes, you tip! 20% (or more) if you are happy with the service. If it sucked then tip less.

According to everything I've read, it's just like eating out... 15 - 20% if you are pleased with the service you receive.

Yep, I usually just hand her the tip after I am dressed and leaving (sounds so dirty!) and tip $15-20 depending on how much it was :)

Enjoy your massage!
