A Little About Us
From the moment you step inside Planet Massage Urban Oasis you will feel welcomed. Our quaint location just South of downtown and walking distance from the lively hustle of Las Olas Boulevard. Our urban oasis is a peaceful retreat that is sure to help renew & rejuvenate you, and leave you with lasting memories and dreams of returning soon.
Our eclectic family of healers is comprised of a small, well trained staff and highly personalized service, relaxation, privacy, and attention to detail. We feel that by keeping it small and personal, we can offer more effective treatments & service than your mega-spas. Our Master therapists have an average of 10 years experience.
With plenty of free parking, our office is tastefully decorated and designed to make everyone feel warm, welcomed, special and at ease.
For our Couple’s Massage, we have two candlelight suites for you to enjoy the bliss together.
Your First Visit, Spa Etiquette and Gratuities
Please come 10-15 minutes early for your first appointment, as there is a little paperwork to fill out. For your convenience, you can fill out your client information and waiver securely online, in advance from a tablet or computer ( Phones generally don’t work well). There’s no need to print anything.
Clothing, and disrobing:
Your therapist is a Florida-Licensed Medical Professional and will act as such while making your visit as comfortable as possible even for modest souls or nervous first timers.
If your appointment is for traditional massage, it is customary to disrobe to a level of your comfort, and everyone has a different level of comfort. Many people prefer to be totally nude, as it offers the most freedom of movement, and allows the therapist to work without working around layers of clothing. Some people prefer to keep their undergarments on, and this is perfectly fine too. All of our therapists have at one point or another massaged someone who prefers to be fully clothed. While definitely not ideal, this is always an option. It is important to remember that you will ALWAYS be covered (draped) with a sheet or towel and your therapist will only uncover the parts of the body on which he or she is currently working, leaving private areas always covered, with possible exception of the gluteal region (buttocks) which may be treated with consent at your therapists discretion. (A leading cause of back or sciatic pain)
In the process of your initial check in, you will have an opportunity to note or speak to your therapist regarding any questions or issues you may have, areas you want worked on, or areas you do not want worked on. We can also accommodate special requests, such as the firmness of touch, and utilize creams and powders instead of oils, should you prefer to be less “oily” after the massage.
Chair massage and reflexology are fully clothed treatments, come as you are. NO disrobing is necessary. Chair massage is perfect for first timers, at the office, parties or in group situations.
Stretching massage: This treatment provides for a combination of massage and stretching. In some of the moves, it is difficult to drape and requires much additional time. For this reason we request that you please wear underwear to make things a little easier.
AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) AIS is more of a guided workout, as opposed to traditional massage. Please wear stretchy or loose, gym type comfortable clothing. Please no short shorts, dresses or skirts.
Gratuities: Therapist gratuities greatly appreciated. Tips are customary in the spa industry and generally range from 15 to 20% or more of the regular service price for exceptional service. Typically gratuities and tips are optional and at your discretion, except during some special events where they may be added. Additionally for some special offers we may require a prepaid gratuity and/or service fee based on the non discounted rate. For medical massage and ongoing wellness, gratuities are not a necessary part of your treatment. Your health and wellness is our #1 concern. Please reach out to the management for affordable packages and we will work with you whenever possible as needed.

After your Massage:
Try to rest, give yourself a little break and allow your body some time to heal itself. People often ask us when to reschedule, read on for important after care…..
