What will be a fair charge for massage service?

I have a massage therapy spa in San Diego  with 3 masseurs now.   I occasionally visit La Costa Resort mainly for golfing and my wife's skin care purpose.  A couple of times during my stay at the resort, I tried their massage service.

What I found out at that time, their rate for the massage service is extremely higher than my spa rate.  The level of massage skill is not as great as our masseurs at Grape Spa.  I hate to compete with other bargain spa because of this reason.   Therefore, I decided to keep our rate, which is only 1/3 of La Costa Resort.

My masseurs are earning very high with mainly tips after each service now.   After all, they deserve good tips after the enormous effort to please each customers.   I am getting some inquiries of employment at my spa and some did have working experience at La Cost before.   I told them we will be happy to work together as long as they are willing to enhance their professional skills to our standard.

Get a massage from them first. See how they are. If you are not doing that already? Where I work prospective employees have to massage the owner or the spa manager before they are hired. I'd suggest if you have good therapists compared to other places, add $10.00 on to your hour massage. The therapists will be happy, and it's only ten bucks more.
