What Does A Massage Therapy Suite Cost?

If you have been wondering what a massage therapy suite will cost you, this article should fill in some much-needed information. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, and we rock the Fort Worth scene with twenty-two salon suite rental locations, so we know a thing, or ten, about massage therapy suites.  Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information about our outstanding luxury salon suites.

But you did not click on this article to read about our success, so let’s talk about the cost of a massage therapy suite, in the past, and now, for they really are two different animals.

The cost of a traditional massage therapy suite

Traditionally, the rental cost of a massage therapy booth would be in line with any other commercial property for lease. It would be priced by the square foot and, depending upon the city, could cost anywhere from $1.00-$2.50 per square foot, possibly higher for a highly-desired location.  Let’s say, for the sake of this example, it would be a 500-square foot suite, $2 per square foot, or $1,000 per month.

If you are talking about purchasing a commercial location, again depending upon the location, you can be looking at $500,000 to a couple million.

Add to those costs the utility hookups, the signage, insurance, furniture, permits, yada, yada, and yada, and you begin to see why massage professionals not named Bill Gates have a hard time affording a business of their own.

The cost of the new massage therapy suite

When we say “new massage therapy suite,” we are talking about a new trend in suite rentals, a trend which is becoming quite popular in the health and beauty industries, a trend we are quite familiar with at Salon & Spa Galleria.

Renting a massage therapy suite at one of our twenty-two locations costs as little as $75 per week, or $300 per month. Included in that cost are all utilities, WiFi, 24/7 access, security monitoring, furniture if needed, a free HDTV, and laundry facilities, just to name some of the add-ons.  Our clients then pay for insurance, a business license, the cost of any decorating they may do, and the cost of any product they may sell in their business.  We have had clients start-up their businesses for as little as $500-$1000, considerably less than the traditional model.

Commission vs booth rental

What needs to be understood is that in the Salon & Spa Galleria business model, you own a massage therapy business.  You are simply renting a suite from us.  You keep 100% of the profits. Unlike the traditional model, you do not work for commissions because you are the owner, an independent entrepreneur steering your own ship towards success.

Is this opportunity available in other cities? Most likely, yes, and we believe it to be worth your while to find out.  If not, we believe it would be worth your while to consider moving to Fort Worth and starting a massage therapy business in one of our luxury suites.  Give us a call and let’s make it happen for you.
