^ooooh, thank you thank you thank youuuuu!!!! that definitely helps!
i'm going to be going to this place a lot for chiropractic/accupuncture, so i don't want to be embarassed not doing what you're supposed to, you know?
^^^I have massages at a chiropractors office, a massage therapists office, and sometimes a spa. Usually I tip 10% at the first 2 mentioned and 20% at the spa. I think they are used to getting bigger tips there and it would look weird to only do 10%. I would still tip at a doctors office especially if you find out they are paying for the space. That is usually how it works.
i have had acupuncture treatment several times at my school and i see a chiropractor regularly. i havent had any massage treatment yet. in regards to chiro..
tipping is not something i would think of. i am a very generous tipper in restaurants, hotel services, valet parking, etc. but i dont think a chiro is someone that would really need a tip
i have talked to some waitresses that said they could not survive without their tips. and i do tip them generously. however, chiropractic services are very expensive, and they make a comfortable living for the service they provide. and this is information i've gathered from the conversations/experience i have had with the chiro's at school. it'd make even more sense not to tip if your chiro was independent/had their own studio space.
let's put it like this.. if i knew waitresses were earning $30/hr, i would not tip as generously. tipping a chiro, for me, would be like tipping a doctor. not something i'd think of.
I am A LCMT and you can definetly tip rather in a dr. office or a spa. Thats how we get paid and we also have to pay a % to the office or spa. you should tip based on how the the therapist treated you and was helpful to your needs. HTH....
