"I love how the therapists listen to your needs and know if your massage should be relaxation, therapeutic or a combination. I enjoy my facials and love the fact I get educated on home care. I have fallen asleep with both massages and facials. Everyone is very accommodating and personable. I love the infra red sauna for detoxing, pain, burning calories and overall relaxation. I like that they have prices for everyone's budget. Small and quaint, Spa 33 is the place to be! "

"My husband and I discovered Tom when we moved to Sorrento Valley. We had very intense, stressful desk jobs that resulted in a ton of shoulder/neck tightness. Add to that - tennis, outrigger canoe paddling, and personal training and all of our other outdoor activities - we needed a lot of help! :) Tom has an amazing ability to work out the knots, and also gave us stretches to do at home. I especially like that he starts his massages face up, and he asks you what's bothering you - physically and mentally - and then he works you through it. It's not just massage, it's massage therapy! (No pun intended!) The best part was going on a frequent enough basis, such that he was able to become familiar with the "trouble spots" and knew exactly how to kneed those out. The relaxing feel of the rooms, the soothing music, the salt rock lamps . . . ahhhhh . . . wish I was there RIGHT NOW! "

"Working with Josh has transformed my life far beyond words; physically, mentally, and spiritually. I came from a background in dance and figure skating but never had any proper training when it came to weight training in a gym setting. Throughout our four and a half month journey, I've gained knowledge and the comfortability in the gym which I have now been able to take with me to college. He is passionate about his work and dedicated to all of his clients. If you give 100% of your effort, he will give you 150%. With his help I was able to work through many personal struggles mentally and spiritually, giving me a whole new perspective on life. I highly recommend Josh to anybody at any fitness level who wants to better themselves in all aspects of their life. I am forever grateful for the knowledge and confidence I've gained working with this amazing individual!"

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.
