"Tom Sorg truly has healing hands. I have had bodywork done by a number of therapists over the years, but I knew after 1 session with Tom he is passionate, knowledgeable and excellent at what he does. After developing a pain in the arch of my foot, I sought help from a podiatrist. My instructions were rest, drugs, ice, self-massage, orthotics, physical therapy, (stretching, ultra-sound, electric stimulation) then finally cortisone shots. After months of these treatments and no success, it was Tom who finally was able to free me from the pain. My only regret is that I didn’t see him sooner. That is only 1 example. He now works on the rest of my family and we have referred him to many friends as well. He will listen and with his awareness of the body, promote healing from within. Cindy K"

"Anthony and Barbaria Fitness saved my life. I started working with Anthony last fall after I had lost a significant amount of weight. I told him I wanted to gain a few pounds, put on some muscle, and feel better about my physical well-being, and he has helped me do exactly that. He not only works closely with me, monitoring each movement and position, but also checks in with me regarding health and nutrition. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to the muscles of the body and how they work, as well as health and wellness. In two short months, I had already seen tremendous results, and look forward to working with him every week. If you're looking for someone well-versed in health and fitness, Anthony is your guy! "

"Julie is fantastic! She listens carefully to your needs - whether it's a gentle relaxation massage or deep tissue/sports massage. Her background with endurance sports (marathons and triathlon) gives her a deep understanding of what I was looking for in a massage and she adjusted her pressure and style to fit what you're looking for. She's very professional, nice and works with your schedule to fit you in, even on a regular basis. I wouldn't recommend going to anyone else in the area!"

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.
