"Lilah is absolutely fabulous! She is friendly, accommodating, professional and definitely knows what she is doing. She came over prepared with sheets, a table, mood music and great aura. We're Asians so we're very used to get massages. All my friends commented on how great Lilah is. She is very perceptive and intuitive on the type of pressure you need. She removes hard knots in a fluid motion and not just concentrate on that specific spot (which a lot of therapists do to remove knots, thus resulting to a soreness). She is highly recommended. For sure, Lilah is on our speed dial now. Thanks Lihah, you're a superstar. "

"I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Tamar Leffert, of Capitola, as a certified massage expert. I had my first session in Spring 2018 with Tamar, and was immediately impressed by the calming ambience in the space she is able to create for her clients. Soft music, comfortable massage table (I’ve had some horrible ones), and her great touch. She is able to apply considerable pressure to problem areas, if that is what is necessary and/or desired, this is not always a given with many massage experts or physical therapists. Since my first visit I was very interested to return, and I have done so now at least 4 times since then. It has been a wonderful gift to myself every time, and I look forward to every session."

" I suffer from low back pain; muscle tightness, and stiffness throughout my whole body, with my hips legs and shoulders carrying the worst of it. With my profession a nurse, prior injuries, in addition to my hobbies/passion for snowboarding, hiking, biking and staying active, I believe I need to protect it from further wear and tear. After a painful experience with a prior masseuse, And realizing I'm was not truly feeling any progress/results, I decided to find a quality masseuse. I found Steve/Live Well on yelp and after reading great reviews, I decided to give him a try. There is a positive energy walking into his establishment, plus he gives you warm tea and a foot scrub before your massage. He asked about my medical history, hobbies, injuries, lifestyle and etc. His technique is nothing I've experienced before. While others dig into knots to try and release them, he identifies trigger points to help release knots and tension. Myofascial release, trigger points, are some of the common terms I hear. My last experience, the masseuse dug into a shoulder knot so deep my arm felt numb and I didn't like that. I have less pain, tightness, in my problem areas (shoulders, low back, and hips) after a massage. I usually go about every two weeks and I do 90 minutes because 60 minutes for my body just isn't enough. I have no complaints and have no doubts about the quality of his work, punctuality, and passion for what he does. "

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.
