Sliding Scale

I follow a sliding scale model for massage rates:

60 minute massage or craniosacral sessions are 50-100$ 

A Quick Guide to Sliding Scale:

I do sliding scale to increase access. I will never question your needs or payment amount. I know that figuring out how much to pay can be stressful or bring up complex feelings. Here is a rough guide inspired by Worts and Cunning:

-The top price is the standard cost of the massage.

-The middle prices are suggested for those who are able to meet their basic needs but have little expendable income. For example, paying for this massage may qualify as a sacrifice but it would not create hardship. 

-The bottom price is for those who stretch or struggle to meet basic needs and paying for this massage would be a significant hardship. 

The economic concept of sliding scale at its most basic: people pay as they are able to for services, events and items. Those with access to more resources pay more and thus provide the cushion for those with less access to pay less, creating a sustainable economic underpinning for said services, events and items.
