"Kirk is a true professional, and practices with integrity – I made an appointment with Kirk for the deep knots from my traps down to my shoulder blades. After reading his profile, my takeaway was that he is a CMT who has an orthopedic massage approach. He did a verbal assessment before I was on the table, asking about my history of areas of tightness and pain, length and kinds of previous treatments, and any prior injuries. He explained the kinds of massage techniques that he performs and the outcomes I could expect from each of them, to treat my condition, and asked me to choose. I decided on trigger point therapy for the deep knots in my neck and back, instead of a deep tissue treatment that I had planned on getting because the results were longer lasting. [I have had packages of appointments at chiropractor’s offices before where they were standing on my back to create enough pressure, but deeper isn’t always better for lasting results – at least when using a foot.] He used percussion therapy for this trigger point treatment. He located the biggest knots within about 30 seconds, and I wasn’t pointing. The device he used released the knots and immobilized the muscle beneath from spasming. I felt like jello, but there was no pain. I was sore the following day, but still no pain. I felt a lot of relief on the second day, with a larger range of motion in my arms without tightness. He communicated clearly and adapted his style to my muscles responsiveness throughout the appointment. Also worth mentioning is that he doesn’t text during the appointment!!"

"I have been searching for a therapist that can focus on specific areas for chronic pain that I've been suffering from in my low back and neck, since a car crash I was involved with in 2016. I told Jill about this pain and she got to work on it and located the problem area immediately. She focused the entire hour on those two area and afterwards the pain was very diminished. Two days later it was almost gone. She explained that the results would only stick if we had a few more session. We built a treatment schedule, and she was even willing to help me make it affordable. I'm looking forward to to my future appointments."

"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!

"I started training with Greg in August 2015 because I had a fitness goal that I didn't know who to attain on my own. I didn't have any experience lifting weights and I had a hard time motivating myself to workout at home. Greg introduced me to weightlifting. He ensured I used proper form and lifted the right amount of weight for me. Then, he customized a plan, which included personalized workouts, to help me reach my goal. I love working out with Greg because he keeps me accountable, he's extremely positive, and he's great at motivating me to push myself. Even though I reached my original fitness goal months ago, I still workout with Greg multiple times every week. His expertise continues to impress me, and I love the results his workouts produce."

"Jenni gives the best massages I've ever received. I've been to several therapists over time and I'd easily rate hers the best. She knows how to get the trouble spots without torturing you as well as just a really relaxing overall experience. She's very kind, professional, and meets my requests for the day - level of firmness, specific areas, etc. Love Jenni's massages!!"

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.
