The vast majority of massage places in Fort Myers are, for lack of a better term, your therapist-owned massage establishments and salons. Here, individual therapist, either alone or in conjunction with other therapists, provide massage therapy and sometimes other spa related services. Massage at one of these places typically costs about $80-$90 per hour. The benefit of these establishments is that their services are often reasonably priced and they are often owned by the actual massage therapists who have a vested interest in the business and its ultimate success. In many cases the best massage therapists, feeling underpaid or overworked at the larger franchises, have left their employ with those establishments to open their own businesses.
The downside to the therapist-owned massage establishment is that they often lack the resources to employ a dedicated receptionist, making it more difficult to schedule an appointment. Also, they often offer fewer services than the more expensive luxury spas. If, however, you are looking for a great massage without all the bells and whistles of a luxury salon, this may be the right choice for you.
