The price of a massage can run as high as $200 per session, depending on the size of the area, the massage therapist and the client.
But in Miami, that price can skyrocket to as much as $400 per session.
The average price of an hour of massage in Miami is now $1,700, according to the Miami Beach Taxicab Association.
In San Diego, massage parlor owners say the city’s high cost of living makes it hard for them to survive.
Some massage parls have gone out of business for years, and their employees are now fighting for a living.
In the last year, Miami Beach has seen the number of massage parlations decline by more than half, and the number in San Diego has dropped by more a quarter, the Taxicade Association said.
The association says San Diego is the most expensive massage parlication in the United States.
