A Canadian business success story, Sanctuary Day Spas has earned a reputation for excellence and innovation in guest services, consistently ranking in the top 10 spas in Ontario by TripAdvisor.
After 20 years of providing a broad range of spa treatments, including massage therapy, we know a thing or two about creating a great guest experience.
We believe that there will always be a demand for the immersive multi-service experience of the day spa. But we also see a growing need to provide clients with a more practical and convenient way to access therapeutic massage.
Whether they’re managing the effects of stress, recovering from a sports injury or wanting to ease their way through the aches and pains of pregnancy, they can call on Massago to bring them relief when and where they need it.
We designed the Massago app to bring RMTs and massage clients together in an innovative way that solves for the needs of both groups. Clients are able to see a therapist on short notice – when their need for a massage is greatest. Therapists get to do more of the work they love while being able to set their own terms as self-employed professionals.
Our vision is to make the Massago service available in urban centres across Canada.
