"I booked a massage with Tom after a weekend of cycling (road bike), and he was able to relieve the tightness and soreness in my legs. The next morning I returned to the gym with renewed legs that felt lighter and more relaxed than before the bike ride. I will return to Tom to work out the tightness in my back and further work out the tightness in my legs. I do not have massages on a regular basis (or ever), and, after my experience here, I will return for regular massage therapy."

"I found Jennifer through Thumbtack, as I myself use Thumbtack for my business. I had no clue what to look for in a Massage Therapist but once I saw her profile and great reviews, I felt confident. She gave me multiple options for appointment times and was very communicative. Her expertise, confidence and serene environment made for a great experience. I will be a repeat customer with Jennifer."

"Lemar Storey has an amazing talent to release the knots in my shoulders and back. As an attorney, I spend most of my days sitting in front of a computer and carry my stress in my shoulders and neck so visiting Lemar regularly provides me so much needed relief. I've been a fan of massage therapy for almost 20 years and during that time, I have had many other therapists remark on the tension in my neck and shoulders, but only one of them has consistently been able to "coax" the muscles to release completely. That's what makes Lemar so special! Additionally, Lemar is always professional and has never been late to an appointment."

"My experience has been transformational; 53 lbs. down and counting. INHOC Fitness is an environment solely motivated by health, wellness and overall fitness. Master Trainer Darin D. Smith’s exercise and nutrition regimens promotes weight loss and strength building while still tailoring to my physical limitations and medical guidelines. INHOC is a place where the word 'diet' isn't discussed nor is the scale important. INHOC offers fitness for the complete family from children, to the elderly, including persons with physical disabilities. Mr. Smith’s programs are extremely affordable and reflective of his innate passion for health and wellness instead of his 32 plus years of experience. #TRUSTTHEPROCESS is so much more than a slogan to me; I have adopted it as my way of life!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is Thai massage?

Thai massage, also called Thai yoga massage, combines acupressure and assisted yoga postures. Thai massage is based on the flow of energy through the body and focuses on energy lines called “sen.” It doesn’t use oils or lotions and, instead of rubbing muscles, the massage therapist compresses, pulls, stretches and rocks the recipient’s body to promote the flow of energy through these sen. In this form of massage therapy, practitioners use their hands, knees, legs and feet to apply deep muscle compression and stretch the body. It’s often performed on a mat on the floor instead of on a massage table. Like most forms of massage, Thai massage is used to relieve stress, improve range of motion and enhance flexibility. Some people also use Thai massage to address a range of health issues, including:  

  • Relieving tension headaches
  • Decreasing back pain
  • Reducing joint stiffness and pain
  • Stimulating circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Boosting energy

Because a traditional Thai massage session covers all of the muscles in your body, it typically lasts 90 minutes to 120 minutes.

How much do you tip a massage therapist?

All forms of massage therapy, from Thai massage to Swedish massage to deep tissue massage, are similar to other spa or hospitality services. So it’s appropriate to tip a massage therapist the standard hospitality rate of 15 percent to 20 percent of the cost of the session. For example, the national average cost for a deep tissue massage is $70-$90, so expect to tip $12-$18. Of course, you can always tip more or less depending on your experience, especially if you’ve opted for extra services. For example, expect to tip more for a couple’s hot stone massage session that includes aromatherapy. Also, if you’re paying with a gift certificate or coupon, or purchasing a discounted multi-session package, make sure to calculate your tip based on the full price of the massage.
