Good Call: Get a Massage For a Fraction of Regular Prices

Stress is more than a temporary affliction these days; to say you're stressed is often more of a general mood. There's only so many times we can ask the strong hands at home to give us a much deserved rubdown, so get creative with your stress-relief and find a cheaper massage.

Massage school students might still be amateurs, but they're on their way to using their hands professionally and will dole out massages for a fraction of regular prices. Search online for local schools and schedule a budget massage. The downside is that the hours are often limited, but when you're in a financial pinch you can't be too picky about the convenience factor.

Have you ever gotten a massage from a therapist-in-training?

I'd rather skip a haircut once in a while than to skip a massage! :spa:

Yes, I have. I have actually gone to massage school and did the whole clinic thing. I've also frequented the clinic as a client. Some are great, some not so much... but I have had that happen with pros, too. I'd rather spend $15 on a massage that might not be the best than $150. (Sady, that has happened).

I'm interested to hear responses. I got some money for a massage (as a gift) and I can't decide if I should go to a massage place or the local massage school where I could get at least 2 massages! I'm just worried they won't be good due to lack of experience.

i actually haven't ever done that but i might consider it if i had to pay on my own :) i'm lucky to have people take me for my massages so i don't have to incur the high cost (and everyone knows that here in NYC it's just way too expensive sometimes)

Yes. I actually almost enjoy them better than a pro. The students are very eager to learn and please when giving a massage. Plus the fact that it's half-price (and sometimes free) makes the massage even sweeter for me.
