Ripple’s suspended massages borrow from the tradition of suspended coffee, which began in Naples about ten years ago.
In essence, a suspended coffee or cafe sospeso in Italian is a cup of coffee that a customer buys anonymously for someone who can’t afford to buy one themselves.
The customer pays for the coffee in advance and the cafe suspends it, later making the coffee for someone who needs it.
Ripple is the first massage business in Australia to have extended this ripple effect to the massage industry. The concept is simple. Any customer can simply add $5 or more to their massage booking (or simply donate $5, you don’t need to make a booking with us) which will go towards a massage or beauty treatment for a woman who has been subjected to domestic violence.
