"I highly recommend Unlockd Massage! Before my massage, I had deep pain in my lower back and hips. Cedric was able to target the exact area that had been bothering me, and the day after my massage I was completely pain free! Cedric not only made me feel relaxed and comfortable during my appointment, but is very knowledgeable in his craft. I would definitely see him again!"

"Kyle is a wonderful massage therapist. He always comes on time, explains what he is doing, and why, and teaches me a lot about muscles and joints. He has really helped me with sciatica pain, and general stiffness due to my propensity to work out a lot."

"As a new person to receiving a massage, Lee made me feel very comfortable upon entering his studio. The studio was actually quite nice and has a relaxing atmosphere. His soft spoken demeanor and his professionalism made the experience quite enjoyable. Once on the massage table, he knew the right technique to use to knead the tension out of my neck and shoulders. And using the right amount of pressure on my back was perfect. Once the massage was over, I was so relax, tensions spots were gone and I needed a nap. As a person new to receiving massages, I will most definitely use Lee again."

"Tonda is the best functional medicine/energy medicine.... massage therapist/biofeedback practitioner that I have ever been treated by. She provided amazing/life saving treatment for my golden-doodle. She is way more than just a massage therapist - she uses her medical intuitive skills along with her 30 years experience as a biofeedback therapist to confirm the cause of the animals challenge- usually a combination of emotional blocks, with subclinical infection and chemicals/heavy metals- and then treats it with her device and gets amazing results!

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.
