Soothe App Event in San Diego

Hey all! I hope you're having a wonderful day. I was invited last Wednesday to attend a Soothe App event in San Diego at the Union Cowork. Soothe is a phone application where massages are delivered to you anywhere you want.

Soothe is basically like the Uber for massage therapy. They come to you. All therapists are licensed & background checked. Available 7 days a week -- 9 a.m. to midnight, including holidays. Their website claims they can be there in an hour or you can schedule in advance. Prices range from $99 for 60 minutes up to $169 for two hours.

I was invited to a VIP influencer event so I took my boyfriend to see what it was all about. The office space was open, slightly hipster with lots of wood, bohemian wall hangings, & concrete floors. They had some snacks to munch on like veggies, hummus, pita chips, & a colorful display of fruit. There was also random selection of wine & beer.

At the Soothe event, there were several stations to get a massage. The therapists gave you a 10 minute teaser of a massage. My massage therapist, Rebecca, asked me if I had any sore spots that needed work on. I pointed out a couple to her & she began. The massage was soothing & relieving. I got up feeling like melted butter, but couldn't help wanting more.

It was  fun to connect with other influencers in the San Diego area. Some were journalists, writers, Instagrammers, bloggers, & what have you. We chatted, exchanged business cards, asked questions. Food, drinks, live music, like-minded people, my darling boyfriend by my side. What more could I ask for?

I've never gotten a massage before so I'm not entirely sure what the running price is. But Soothe is not  something that is affordable for everyone. Some people have to work an entire day or more to earn $99 & to fork it over after a one-hour massage may be a little unfortunate. I thoroughly adored my mini massage & would consider Soothe in the future if I was slightly richer.

How does the Soothe App sound to you? Do you like the concept? How about the price? Oh & hey, let me know which photo is your favorite. :]

  18. These all look really nice. I super want to go to more blogger events but there's just never any on around here! The closest maybe would be at least 2 hours away but there's still hardly any.

  19. I loved how honest you where in this review. I definitely agree that $99 is a lot to fork over for a massage, even though I think that's how much they usually run for. I do like the idea and could use a massage every so often, though, so I might look into getting the app once I'm in a different income bracket. :D
