Massage Therapy Update 2022!

Updated: Nov 22

August 20th, 2022

Hello Everyone!

Just a friendly reminder as we start heading into the swing of things this coming fall there will be some changes to the Massage Therapy world. Massage Prices will be going up September 1st, 2022. The reason for this is due to some of the new tax laws that went into place for us massage therapists. Minnesota is now having massage therapists that do not work directly under a provider to start charging sales tax. I have personally been covering the sales tax and with the inflation we are in, I can no longer cover the cost. Below is the link to the article.

Also, for those that choose to pay with a credit/debit card, I will be passing the interest of the processing fee of 3.5% on to you . You are more than welcome to pay by check or cash if you choose to avoid the additional fee, but will still have to pay the sales tax on the service given. Sales tax is 7.38% which includes the MN state, Sherburne county, and City of Zimmerman, where I conduct my business.


Lastly, I will be having to cut back on my hours of operation as I am having difficulties keeping up with the demand and I would like to add in new services with continuing education courses. I hope to find another massage therapist in the near future to help with meeting these demands. My hours will consist of working Monday through Friday hands on at 7 am to hands off at 3 pm. If you are pre-booked with massages after 3 pm, those massages will no longer be provided and will have to be canceled.


I know this might not be pleasing to everyone, as we are all suffering from the higher cost of living, but please know I really tried to find other ways to prevent increasing the cost of the services I offer. The new prices have already been updated on the website at www.whitemtnmassage.com but does not include the sales tax that will be added at the end of the service.


Example of what it will look like when paying for the service


Swedish Massage paying with Credit Card

$70+$5.16 (7.38%)+ $2.63 (3.5% processing fee with credit card) = $77.79


Swedish Massage paying with Check or Cash

$70+$5.16 (7.38%)= $75.16


I greatly appreciate all the support each and everyone one of you have provided me with in the last 18 years I have been a Massage Therapist.


From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Amy N. White Mountain
