How much should you tip for a massage?
This is a common question for spa package customers. Many people are not massage regulars, so there is no shame in asking this important question!
The typical tip amount for spa services is between 15 and 20 percent. If you have seen more than one service provider in the same day, leave 15-20 percent of the total amount of your bill. The tips will be dispersed between each employee according to the portion of the service they provided.
Masseuses appreciate a 20 percent tip and like it even more if given in cash. Your tip can be left on a credit card or check, but most often good ole’ fashion cash is preferred. That’s because if you tip on your credit card, most spas will pay that tip out with the therapist’s weekly or biweekly paycheck. If you tip in cash, the therapist gets to take it home that very same day. Either way, here at Bella Vita, our employees will get 100% of their tip, so no need to fret!
If you’re tipping with cash in a provided envelope, it’s always best to write the therapist’s full name. If a casual spa doesn’t have tipping envelopes at the register, you can discreetly hand the cash tip to your therapist with a quick, “thank you!”.
