Forget the spa! You can get a relaxing massage in the comfort of your own home thanks to an app called Soothe. It is delivering on demand massage therapists in about an hour to 35 cities and counting.

In this episode of Tech Smart, I chat with the service’s creator, Merlin Kauffman, who would developed the app after wanting a convenient and easy way to relax during his frequent business travels. I also speak with one of Soothe’s massage therapists who filled me on how, thanks to Soothe, she was able to quit her job at a spa and work through Soothe full-time. We also chatted about some of the safety concerns that could arise through this type of service, and how Soothe addresses those safety issues for their massage therapists and customers alike.

So sit back, relax, and let’s explore Soothe on this episode of Tech Smart: America on Demand.
