Here are a few reasons to support Water House Wellness:

No Uniform Policy

We love our therapist's style! Not having a uniform policy means everyone is free to express themselves.

Our therapists are not required to stay on site

We give our therapists schedule flexibility and a head's up if they are booked. Otherwise, no need to sit in the office!

This is a rare treat for a massage therapist.

Cold hard cash

Practitioners earn a wage that makes sense. In most cases double what is offered at a competitor.

As green as possible

We offer organic oils and lotions, BPA free containers and launder our sheets and towels in the most efficient way we can. We care about what touches our therapists skin all day long and the quality of the air they work in.


Our practitioners ability to communicate with you by text and email means that you get one on one attention.

It's unheard of for a practice to offer their therapists access to client information and communication. We trust them to keep your business in house, and to take care of you like family.

Recharge with Vacation

Therapists are offered paid time off, which is unheard of in our industry. We believe R&R is vital to self care. The ability to care for other people starts with your ability to care for yourself.

Taking breaks during shifts is also encouraged, and we work with our practitioners to go on retreats and take continuing education courses.

Our Philosophy

Water House Wellness stands out as an innovative and different kind of wellness center. Each practitioner develops their own style and practice within the support of our business.

We are massage therapist owned and run, located in Arlington center.

Why Work With Us

It's possible you can find a great treatment at a massage chain nearby. We don't doubt it.

Learn why WHW is different: Our practitioners are paid well and will have long careers because of the benefits of Fair Trade Massage, while working at a chain leads many therapists to burn-out and injury.

It's just not possible to make a living earning $14 an hour in a labor industry such as massage therapy. Our bodies can only do so much. We challenge you to support practitioners that are paid appropriately, like individual proprietors and small businesses such as WHW.


Frequently Asked Questions


"Water House Wellness has transformed me from someone who maybe gets a massage twice a year into someone who has made regular massage a committed part of their wellness plan. I have been getting deep tissue massage from Robbie for nearly a year now, and would highly recommend him to anyone. He is fundamentally talented at the art, but he also really goes above and beyond to bring the latest techniques to his practice. He genuinely cares about his clients, does research to best serve their individual needs, and follows up by email to see how you're doing afterward. It's a personal touch I've come to appreciate very much!"

"Water House Wellness is not another run of the mill massage place. They are trying something different, and succeeding in a major way. Everything about their practice is different from a mainstream chain- from their internal practices (compensating their therapists fairly and allowing them to make their own hours) to their external practices (flexible appointment times, customized massage and music). The atmosphere is very relaxed, and homey- and that's not just the physical space but the attitude of the therapists there as well. I recently re-discovered Water House after having not gone in about 4 years. Now, I don't want to go anywhere else! They are pricier than what I had been paying elsewhere, but there's no comparison.
