"Nathaniel is a great massage therapist that not only knows massage but multiple modalities of bodywork. He performed deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and myofacial release on my body. After one session my body immedietly had more Range Of Motion. As a personal trainer for fitness 19 i even started referring my clients to Nathaniel for their bodywork. Most massage therapists are either too soft or aggresive but Nathaniel knows the sweet spot for each individual. If your looking for a good massage therapist Nathaniel is your guy.- Raymond Sunga"

"I hadn't exercised in many years. Was pretty sedentary. Felt a bit helpless. Didn't know where to start. Xavier turned out to be the perfect trainer to help me. He is patient and wants to work at a pace that I am capable of doing, while still challenging me. He is very concerned about using proper body mechanics. After just a few sessions, I can actually see the potential of becoming strong, flexible and physically fit again. I really look forward to our sessions and I feel that he is very knowledgeable and experienced. His massage therapy training has been useful in addressing some problem areas where I had been experiencing pain and therefore avoiding use of certain muscles. I would recommend him for people of any age or fitness level. He will listen to you and tune into your needs."

"I am a certified massage therapist working in Walnut Creek, and using this for some work on the side. I went to school in Portland Oregon where the required minimum hours of schooling are 300 more hours than in California. I have knowledge and skills in kinesiology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, psychology, some energy work; and have learned how to apply these effectively to suit your massage experience. I specialize in deep tissue and trigger point, however I am quite keen with things such as Thai massage and tui'na. I provide a relaxing and revitalizing energy in my practice. "

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.
