The standard for many years was the 60 and 90 minute massage. Most therapists allowed 15 minutes between sessions, but this left sessions starting at odd times.
Many places have gone to 50 and 80 minute massages to allow them to start on the hour and half hour. It also allows them to book session after session for the often overworked therapists. The only winners in this scenario are the owners. If you are getting a massage once per month, you are losing a total of 2 hours of massage time every year (not to mention the time you spend talking with the therapist, and changing your clothes), and the therapists get 10 minutes or less to change sheets, sanitize the room, and take care of necessary personal issues, like washing hands, bathroom breaks, and eating.
At Colorado Injury Care, we are working owners and massage consumers ourselves, so we treat you and our therapists the way we want to be treated. We believe that it is equally important to take care of our clients and ourselves. We allow a full 30 minutes between every session. You receive the full value of the time you paid for, giving us the full time to adequately address your goals, and allowing you time to undress and dress without losing time. We get ample time to talk with you beforehand, take a mental (and bathroom) break afterwards, and reset the room.
