Massages can be a great way to bring people together and make any occasion special for everyone. Whether you are a business, sports team, or just a group of friends, Ideal Massage is here to help you create a memorable and enjoyable experience.
Ideal Massage offers event bookings for in-office and external events. Event, or large-party, bookings are available upon request only and may be subject to prepayment. In most cases, our standard Everyday and Loyalty Discounts apply to events.
In-office Events and Large Parties
In-office events can be a great way to treat larger numbers of individuals to full service experiences of 30 minutes or longer.
What is the difference between an event and large parties?
Large Parties are typically parties that exceed 3 people and does not exceed the office maximum capacity for clients. For instance, our Lutz location has 8 rooms, but has a maximum capacity of 10 services at any one time. This means that all members of a large party can be seen at one time.
In contrast, events are large parties that exceed the office room capacity and may require the office to close itself to online bookings in order to meet the needs of the event. For instance, a sports team wanting 30 minute massages for 20+ people on a Thursday with only 6 therapists available, may require 3 or more hours of service time.
How do you charge for events and large parties?
Events and large parties are charged at the same hourly rate of $120 per hour plus a mandatory gratuity of 18-20% depending on the size of the party and services provided. In addition, our pricing for events are subject to our Everyday and Loyalty Discounts on the hourly service rate.
Prepayments are required for all events and large parties. Invoicing and special discounts may be available based on the size of event or party and the services being provided.
Are all services available for events and large parties?
Due to many of our services not being available with all therapists (such as Ashiatsu or hot stone massages), we are unable to guarantee that all services would be available for events and large parties. The services that we are most likely to be able to provide all participants with would be:
Some add-on scrub services such as hand, foot or back scrubs
Some additional services may be available for individuals in the party, but not all participants. In addition, some dates may not be available for large party or event bookings.
How do I book an event or large party?
The best way to ensure availability for a large party or event is to contact us directly via email or phone at (813)609-0444. There is also a form to the left for your convenience. In order to book your appointment we require 14 days between the time of booking and the date of the event. This allows us to ensure enough therapists are available for the event. In addition, an invoice for services will be created and payment collected no less than 7 days prior to the event. Any unpaid booking will be subject to termination if payment is not received 7 days prior to the event. In order to give you an estimated price for the appointment and or to book the appointment, we will need some information to assist you.

Chair Massage Events
At Ideal Massage we love to get out into our community and provide a safe and enjoyable experience for businesses and organizations needing a little break from the usual. A chair massage is a great way to say "Thank you" to your team or provide a unique party surprise. Regardless of your needs, Ideal Massage has the equipment and staff to make the experience great for everyone.
What is a chair massage?
In the simplest of terms a chair massage is an easy and portable way to provide therapeutic or relaxation massage on the go. Clients don't get undressed and instead the massage is provided over the clothes. There is little to no use of oils or lotions. Instead, therapists use a specially designed chair to assist them in leveraging their body to apply pressure in just the right way, providing quick relief from pain and instant relaxation.
How do I know a chair massage event is right for me?
Chair Massage events are great for large parties of 10 or more people in a limited period of time. They are especially ideal for external events that will not take place in one of our office locations.
Chair massages are great for school or work functions where there may be an unknown number of people you want to serve. They are also great for smaller teams, where it may be difficult to leave the office or schedule an event that coordinates with everyone's availability. Chair Massages can also make great events for personal parties such as bridal showers, birthdays, etc.
How do you charge for chair events?
Generally, with booking a chair event we need to know either the number of people you want to serve or the length of time you'd like us to be there. Either way, we charge a standard rate of $120/hour or $2/minute. There is also a small travel fee for each therapist. Based on the size of the event, a mandatory gratuity may also be requested at the time of booking.
Our chair events are subject to the same discounts as our standard in-office services on the hourly rate. Discounts do not apply to travel fees or any collected gratuity. This means, for example, that events held Monday-Thursday are subject to a 10% discount on the hourly rate and members of our loyalty program can use their discounts of 10-40% off for events as well.
How do I book a chair event?
Chair events require time and coordination of therapists, payment, and equipment. To ensure your event is ideal, we ask that you give us a minimum of 14 days between scheduling the event and the day of the event. You can book a chair event by phone, email, or by submitting the form to the right for an estimate. In addition, an invoice for services will be created and payment collected no less than 7 days prior to the event. Any unpaid booking will be subject to termination if payment is not received 7 days prior to the event.
