    Just got a great massage. The rate here is $50 an hour. I gave the gal a $10 tip. I've seen way too many threads about foodservice...

    $20 for an hour- especially if it was a great massage. IMO. $10 is a little cheap for a 60-minute massage. They are not bringing you a burger and fries, they are physically massaging your body....for an hour.

    I go for an 80-minute deep-tissue, about every 4-6 weeks, and give a $30-35 tip.

    Pretty close to $100 an hour here, and a $20 tip, so you're in the same %.

    I give 20-30$ tip for a one hour, 60$ massage.

    But, my masseuse is hotter than the sun and I have a real weakness for her. Wish I could afford to tip her 100$. I would.

    Plus, she is a little thing (bout 100 lbs.) and I'm big (260) and she works her ass off. I know that it is very taxing on her body and especially hands and wrists for her to try to bust me up.

    What does a masseuse get paid? Salary or do they, like waitstaff, work for below minimum wage and get tips?

    I'd say, if you return and want the gold treatment, you tip well - 20%...based on the massage, not the looks of the masseuse. That's how they get you...

    they get a flat fee if independent.

    extras are optional.

    working for a house, i don't know what they get, % wise.

    they make tips. yeah. gravy.

    but i don't go to LA or NYC for a stupid message.

    Leave them a personalized selfie of your private parts? Maybe sell the extra copies here on the Emporium?

    I go to a place that charges only $80 for 90 minutes (I always do 90 mins.). I tip $25.

    The woman I go to is a "massage therapist" and does not accept tips. She does a great job but there is nothing sexual about it. Probably a good thing because she's friends with my wife.

    There is nothing sexual about the deep tissue massage I receive.

    In fact, the two are mutually exclusive. It's painful.

    But, my masseuse is still hotter than a firecracker.

    I love that part, outside the room.

    It appears I've been a little light on tipping. But, the only feedback I get at the parlor is a thank you and a smile...

    I go to a massage therapist monthly, and yes, she is of the very hot variety. I try to tip her every time and she will not accept, although I did insist that she let me tip her right before Christmas.

    Like an earlier poster said, it's not sexual at all. In fact it has only moved once, lol. (Seinfeld reference for you youngsters).
