With Massago, you work when you want, and as much as you want. Take on a few sessions a week to supplement your income or make it your full-time gig. We offer the highest pay rate in the industry, starting at $80 per massage. You can earn even more in the busy season when surge pricing comes into effect.

How it works

The Client experience

Massago manages all aspects of the client relationship, so you can focus on what you do best.

Using the Massago app on their smart phone, clients can get a massage the same day they decide they need one, and often within a couple of hours. A qualified therapist comes them. So they can simply relax at home or the office.

No money changes hands. Both payment and tip are processed through the app.

At the end of the appointment, the therapist adds their chart notes to the client’s file, which is securely stored online.

The client can easily rebook with their favourite therapist. They can also rate their therapist and leave a review for other users to see.

The therapist experience

Massago offers greater independence, higher pay and a safe experience.

You choose your own hours and manage your schedule right from the app. We do all the marketing to ensure Massago continues to be the app of choice.

You bring the massage table; the client supplies the sheets.

You can feel safe knowing that Massago clients are carefully vetted. If they don’t pass our identity verification process, they can’t book an appointment. Check client reviews your peers have posted, and refuse any appointment you don’t want.

We pay higher than industry standard. Your pay is automatically transferred to your bank account or PayPal account, and you keep 100% of your tips. A strict cancellation policy ensures you still get paid if the client cancels within 4 hours of the appointment.

About Us

The Time For Massago is Now

Massago was built on the idea that busy people can’t always take the time to go to the spa or clinic to get a therapeutic massage. Booking an appointment days in advance doesn’t appeal to them. And when their massage is over they want to relax, not battle traffic or transit to make their way home.

Massago is changing the way Canadians experience therapeutic massage. With this innovative on-demand mobile app they can enjoy the comfort and convenience of a massage in their home or office the same day they make the request, and often within the same hour. The entire transaction, from the selection of massage type to payment for service, is done through the app.

Massago was developed by many of same people who made Sanctuary Day Spas one of Canada’s leading spa companies – with 5 Ontario locations and 20 years of providing a wide range of massage and other spa treatments.

Massago is the only on-demand service that partners exclusively with registered massage therapists. Every receipt includes the therapist’s provincial registration number so that clients with private health insurance can submit a claim.

Our vigorous vetting process includes background and credential checks for therapists, multiple in-person interviews and practical exam. An in-app rating system provides an added layer of assurance, allowing clients to leave a review of their therapist for the benefit of other users.

Massago is Canadian owned and operated. Our vision is to make the Massago on-demand service available in urban centres across Canada.20

Massago is Canada’s original and most popular mobile app for on-demand massage therapy – connecting massage therapists with clients who want the convenience of receiving treatment in their home or office. While our app came on the scene in 2016, the people behind it have been working in the massage business for over 20 years.

Massago currently operates in urban centres across Ontario, with plans to expand across Canada. If we are not currently in your city, we encourage you to register now to expedite our expansion into new markets. We need a large network of great therapists to make Massago work!

Safety has always been, and will continue to be a major consideration for us. Massago is one of a few companies in Canada utilizing an app-based identity verification tool. To register as a Massago user, the client is required to take a picture of a government-issued identification (license, passport, etc.). This information is sent to a third party to confirm that the ID is valid. If there is any doubt, the registration will not proceed.

We’ve also built a feature into the app that will automatically notify us if you haven’t ended your appointment, which will prompt us to immediately check in with you.

We tilt the split in favour of our therpaists.  You will earn between $80-$125 per massage.

In our busiest urban markets like downtown Toronto, where parking and traffic congestion can make it harder for you to get to appointments, we charge premium pricing to make it worth your while. Again, you get 80%. And during extra busy times when surge pricing may come into effect… you guessed it… you still get 80%.

From time to time, Massago may send out promotional offers to clients. Massago will cover the full cost of any promotion. You will always receive the full rate.

By the way, if you are registered to collect HST/GST/PST, we will add it to the client’s total on your behalf.  

Tipping is optional, but encouraged. At the end of each service, the client is prompted to add a tip. They can choose from suggested amounts – 15%, 18% or 20% – or input any other amount they want.

As a Massago therapist, you are self employed and choose the hours that work best for you. Massago operates from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  

No. The benefit of working with Massago is that you can choose the appointments that work best with your schedule and location. You will never be asked to be “on call” for Massago. If you want to receive appointment requests, keep the app open on your mobile phone. If you don’t, just close the app.

Yes. Appointments are managed entirely through the Massago app, which works with most Android and iOS operating systems.

Your payment, including any tip, is processed automatically at the end of the massage session. The transfer is completed within 6 business days. To get you set up in our system, we’ll ask you to provide your bank account details.

Massago was certainly a game changer for both clients and therapists when it was first launched. Yet the concept was quickly and enthusiastically embraced as just another (much more convenient) way to access massage therapy. As a therapist working with Massago, you’ll continue to provide the same high quality therapeutic services you do now (we offer Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage, Prenatal massage and Sports massage), and continue to fulfil the professional requirements of your college or association.

Upon confirmation of their first booking with Massago, the client is sent a health history form electronically, which they complete and submit prior to their appointment. Any Massago therapist who sees the client after that can access the chart on our secure online charting system by smartphone, tablet or computer.

You accept the appointments you want and pass on any you don’t. The app automatically offers the appointment to therapists who are geographically closest to the appointment location. If there is no therapist locally who wants to take the appointment, the app will then notify therapists further away.

We can help you with that. If you don’t own a portable massage table you will be able to purchase one from us at a preferred rate.
