Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a massage therapist during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Ask your massage therapist if they offer consultations over a video chat or phone call. If they do, ask them any questions you have about the upcoming appointment. For example, ask what precautions they're taking to keep both parties safe due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You might also want to ask if they offer gift cards that can be used at a later time, remote services or even virtual lessons for you or members in your household.

Also, ask how they plan to handle payments, and whether you can pay through an online or digital method instead of with physical cash or credit cards. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a massage therapist when social distancing?

Because massage therapy requires person-to-person contact, social distancing is not possible. However, you can ask massage therapists near you if they can offer remote services instead, such as lessons for you and your partner.

If you don’t want to book an appointment with a massage therapist right now, but you will in the future when the pandemic subsides, consider paying your massage therapist in advance or tipping them anyway. You can also ask about buying a gift card for future work. 

Do massage therapists offer remote or virtual services?

Ask massage therapists near you about the possibility of remote services. You might come across profiles that state the therapist is offering remote services such as lessons and techniques you can do on your own, with a friend or with a partner.

Does a massage therapist need to enter my home?

Many massage therapists operate their businesses out of their own homes, though some offer mobile massages and come to your home. You should ask the massage therapist where they typically operate and if they are making any special accommodations to better observe the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing

If you must cancel or delay your massage therapy appointment due to COVID-19, consider asking the therapist if they can offer massage techniques or lessons via video chat, email or some other digital format. You can also ask if it's possible to buy gift cards that can be used at a later time.

Can I use digital payments to pay for a massage?

Many massage therapists accept digital payments through Venmo, Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle and other online platforms. Even businesses that do not typically accept digital payments may be changing their methods to practice social distancing. Just check with your massage therapist before the appointment to see how they handle payments.  

How can I find out if a massage therapist is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

The definition of an essential COVID-19 service provider varies from state to state and city to city. To see which businesses are considered essential in your area, visit the official government website of your state or city.

You can also read CISA’s publication on identifying critical workers to find out more information on a national level. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

How long is a Swedish massage?

A Swedish massage can range from 45 minutes to 120 minutes or more. A longer massage allows the massage therapist to give you an all-over massage and then circle back to focus on areas in need of extra bodywork. Some massage therapists recommend that your first massage be longer to give the therapist time to learn more about your health and any injuries or pain before providing you with a healing massage. The longer your massage, the more it will cost. Swedish massage is made up of five body strokes designed to relax, heal, improve circulation and maintain health. The techniques are called effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. During Swedish massage, all parts of the body are addressed, and the client is often unclothed and draped with a cloth. Swedish massage is proven to be beneficial to mental and physical health, and has been shown by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine to boost the immune system.

Is hot stone massage safe in pregnancy?

If you’re ready for relaxation and relief from pregnancy pains, prenatal massage may be a great healing option. Once your prenatal care provider has approved you for pregnancy massage, look for a licensed massage therapist who also has training and certification in prenatal massage techniques.

The safety of hot stone massage during pregnancy depends on several factors including the stage of your pregnancy and where on the body the hot stones are applied. The massage therapist should avoid raising your core temperature or using hot stones on the abdomen. When in doubt, talk to your prenatal care provider.

How much are pregnancy massages?

Prenatal massages can be a safe and therapeutic way to alleviate the aches and pains of pregnancy. A prenatal massage can promote a sense of relaxation and well-being for expectant mothers. The national average cost for a pregnancy massage ranges between $70 and $90. The cost of a pregnancy massage will vary depending on where you live, the length of the massage, and the massage therapist. Typically, the longer a massage, the higher the cost. Some massage therapists charge the same rate per minute, regardless of massage length, while others charge less per minute for longer appointments. Here are two examples of average prenatal massage costs:

  • Therapist A: Offers a 30-minute massage for $45, 45 minutes for $60, 60 minutes for $75, 75 minutes for $90 and 90 minutes for $105.
  • Therapist B: offers a 30-minute massage for $45, a 60-minute massage for $85, a 90-minute massage for $115 and a 120-minute massage for $145.

What is a deep tissue full body massage?

A deep tissue full body massage is a form of healing bodywork. At your first massage, your massage therapist will do a brief intake. They will ask you questions about the type of pressure you’d like to receive during your deep tissue massage, any previous massage experience you’ve had, and any injuries or sensitivities you have. You can remain clothed, or the massage therapist will provide draping so that even if you’re not wearing clothes you are always fully covered. Deep tissue massage may be a good option for people with chronic pain or muscle tension. The systematic deep tissue strokes will work to break down any scar tissue or stiff tissues and create ease in your body again. Massage therapists use their hands, forearms, fists and knuckles to knead and stroke your muscles and loosen adhesions. Although deep tissue massage work is intense, it should not be painful, so communicate clearly with your massage therapist so they know if you’re having any discomfort. The national average cost of a deep tissue massage is between $70 and $90.

Kirk is excellent at massage and knows what he needs to do to help relieve tension and stress or just relax tight muscles. He customizes the massage to each clients needs. He performed 3 massages at my house for myself and two others. Every person thought it was a great massage.

I used Tania's massage service for a suprise gift to my fiance. She had been to many massages and she said that she is the best! She is very communicative and was even able to schedule for me even in a short notice. Thanks again for the massage and will definitely do it again and will recommend her massage service to everyone!

Lourdes is a gem. Her depth of knowledge and experience in massage therapy was apparent when I first talked to her. This gave me confidence to book her for a 90 minute back to back massage for my wife and I. She came In a Sunday evening to accommodate us as we were first timers. I have lower back pain and prefer Thai massages but wanted to break the mold and see what she had to offer. Lourdes has great communication skills and constantly got feedback from me to gauge the state of my body’s range of motion and pain areas. I was a new client and she was formulating a therapy plan as she we was learning more about my body. After a few minutes of the “getting to know you”, she started applying pressure that was very purposeful and effective in specific areas of my body. After the massage, I learned that she combined both Shiatsu and Thai massage techniques to address my therapeutic needs. I provided her with my personal CBD lotion and pain cream which she used in the second half of my massage. I’m in my bedroom now typing up this review while my wife is getting her massage. I feel it’s the least I could do, for the well thought of and well executed massage therapy she provided. Thanks Lourdes! You’re a keeper. Thanks for the reasonable pricing structure. I didn’t think we could afford a home service but thanks to you, we are happy troopers. This experience was definitely worth it and more. See you in a few weeks!

Joyce was excellent! We loved her professionalism, friendly attitude and she provided a great massage for my husband for his birthday. She created a very relaxing atmosphere by playing soothing music and we also added some scented candles as well and dimmed the lights. It was a great experience! We felt very comfortable with Joyce in our home and we will definitely use her services again. Thanks again Joyce!

An excellent session is an understatement for Monique brushes on all aspects of a massage from creating the ambiance to knowing exactly how to work every muscle in the body. I train everyday and after her session I can feel my body is rujuvanated and back to its fullest potential especially taking away the spasm and stress. I also felt more relaxed and energetic after the therapy! Would highly recommend Monique’s perfection!

I was about 15 minutes early, but Kirk was so nice to accommodate me and allow me to wait inside while he prepared. He made sure to check with me in regards to music, temperature, pressure and all things related to massage. He was 150% truthful about the fact that he NEVER breaks the connection; even when reaching for oil. I would recommend to ANYONE and EVERYONE! Very professional and good at what he does. Great pressure; worked on knots but was not over bearing and I was still able to relax. Honestly, if we were not talking, he would have put me to sleep. When a therapist puts me to sleep, they have done their job!! Thank you Kirk!
