"I liked Andrea the moment I met her. My husband I have hired her to return to our home on a weekly basis. Her method of massage is refreshing and amazing. The addition of some aroma therapy was a nice added treat. Look forward to working with Andrea on a regular basis."

"Tim is wonderful! I went to see him regularly in Rapid City. I have recently moved to the Seattle area and have not found anyone like Tim. He can find troublesome areas without even telling him. Now days so many people have become massage therapists but don't have the talent that Tim has. I recommend him to everyone. Just wish he lived in Seattle. "

"Cameron is a great massage therapist. I love the fact that he comes to the home for an affordable price and delivers top quality. He is very flexible with scheduling. I have been receiving massages for many years and look forward to my weekly session with Cameron. He has an awesome personality as well which adds to the overall relaxation. He knows your body well and can tell when it needs extra attention. Would recommend him without a second thought. "

"I believe customer service and knowledge are most important when I hire a professional for anything. Jon excels at both. I work long days often in excess of 16 hours doing very labor intensive outdoor work. The pain has been slowly taking over my life. In two sessions so far he has helped me to understand the ways I need to move to reduce the stress and damage I have been causing myself. I hope you truly understand that in two visits I learned things I've been doing wrong for 15 years. More importantly I am learning how to correct them! It was humbling. You don't have to live with the pain. I will continue to work with Primal Function for the foreseeable future. I have had triggerpoint therapy and Jon has assessed and advised as to how I can continue to work in my trade without damaging my body. Thank you Jon and primal function. Sincerely, Brian Sorensen Owner at Sorensen Heating and Cooling"

"Refreshing, pure relaxation! I had shoulder surgery about 3 1/2 - 4 years ago. While that went well I would still get tension in my shoulder which caused the tension to spread to my neck and back. I also have arthritis in my neck and that is a big reason for the continued tension. I lived in some sort of tension and pain all the time. It was usually just a nagging light pain but it was always there and sometimes would flare up and get much more uncomfortable. At one point the nagging pain from the tension got so bad I went to physical therapy. Part of the P.T sessions was massage therapy as well as the various exercises. I experienced how well massage therapy helped with my pain. I kept saying I was going to try massage therapy on a regular basis but I procrastinated about another year before doing so. I finally started with Teri on a monthly massage routine. I am almost completely free of tension and pain. I say almost completely because from time to time I get a "little" tension mostly in my neck from the arthritis. When I do start to get the tension and pain the massage makes it go away. It took about 2-3 sessions before it was completely gone but it did go away. I am so very thankful to Teri for helping me. I can't believe I waited so long. I guess I didn't think it would really work. I was definitely wrong. I recommend massage therapy for anyone in discomfort. If your not in any type of discomfort and get a massage just for the pleasure of it...oh so wonderful! "

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are the different types of physical therapy?

Physical therapists work with people who have been injured or people who are ill to improve their movement and help them manage their pain. The U.S. Department of Labor explains that physical therapists “are often an important part of rehabilitation, treatment, and prevention of patients with chronic conditions, illnesses, or injuries.” Physical therapists can also choose to specialize in one of nine areas. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, these areas of specialization are:

  • Cardiovascular and Pulmonary
  • Clinical Electrophysiology
  • Geriatrics
  • Neurology
  • Oncology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Pediatrics
  • Sports and
  • Women's Health

 

The national average cost for a physical therapist is $60 to $80, although it will cost more if the patient is paying for services out of pocket rather than through insurance. If you have insurance and want to work with a physical therapist for a specialty area, such as oncology or geriatrics, you may need a referral from your general practitioner. Patients who are paying directly for services can often contact the physical therapist directly.

What exactly does a physical therapist do?

A physical therapist is a health care provider who assists patients with mobility improvement and pain management. Often patients are referred to a physical therapist by a primary care doctor or specialist for help recovering from a surgery or traumatic injury, such as a car crash. Physical therapists help patients manage pain that results from chronic disease and other illness. Physical therapy can help enhance mobility when patients are faced with neurological disorders, such as after a stroke, and provide relief from arthritis or other mobility and pain issues.   

A physical therapist uses medical exercise equipment and exercises to empower patients to regain flexibility and mobility where possible. They may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more to improve muscle control and movement. A physical therapist uses physical movement to help heal the patient, but also can sometimes prescribe medication as appropriate. A physical therapist can also become board certified in one of nine specialty areas.

Why is physical therapy important?

Physical therapy can help you recover range of motion and ease pain after injury, accident or illness. Many people are prescribed physical therapy by their primary care doctor or specialist after a car accident, surgery or sports-related injury. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to start physical therapy, but unless you are paying out of pocket for the services, your insurance provider might require a referral. Physical therapy is also a medical solution for pain associated with chronic illness such as osteoarthritis and can be used for recovery after a stroke or other neurological disorders.

Physical therapy teaches you how to move your body in a safe and healing way to regain strength and movement. During a physical therapy session, the PT will teach you to use medical exercise equipment and approved exercises to regain your lost flexibility and improve your mobility where possible. You may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more. From young children to seniors, patients of any age can benefit from the science-based movements and exercises that encourage flexibility, rebuild muscle, and ease stiff joints.

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.
