"My Swedish massage with Dessi was great. She’s obviously very knowledgeable about her craft and made me feel super calm and relaxed. Plus she was able to schedule me for a very last minute appointment which I was so grateful for. I highly recommend her!"

"I have several issues going on. She is very knowledgeable and indicated most and worked on them. For a first visit. I was very impressed . I'm older and have been going for deep tissue massage for over 27 years. Somewhat faithfully. When I have therapists available in my locations ( I travel a lot ) ... most do very well trying to help me that I have gone to. Back to the question. Very impressed, satisfied with the first treatment and will and have rescheduled for next week...... I will be a ( temporary ) permanent client as long as I'm in Charlotte "

"Lisa provided me with expert skill. She was professional, polite, punctual, and her hands were magic with the added surprise of cold stones and light skin scrubbing. I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a high quality professional massage."

"Gary comes to my office and does chair massage once a week. He does such a great job that I made an appointment for a full table massage and that was even better. He is able to zero in on the exact place that needs attention and work everything out. He's really good at what he does. Highly recommended."

"I've got massages from Jessica since December 2017. I keep having low-back problems from time to time as I'm sitting all day at work and my hamstrings become too tight. She carefully listens to my requests and develops unique plans combining various massage techniques, moves, and stretches. She resolves the problem areas with smooth, uniform pressure, and also helps me become deeply relaxed. She works very efficiently and with great precision, and usually leaves me with some great tips on posture. She thoroughly understands the human body and never hesitates to explain the cause of my problems with the scientific names of muscles, ligaments, and bones. Jessica is extremely professional and takes great care to make me feel comfortable throughout the session. She has a calm, kind, intuitive, and scientific nature and it is such a wonderful experience to get a massage from her."

"Alex's bodywork/massage is unreal. He'll ruin your ability to go to other massage therapists, so be prepared to raise your standards really, really high. I really had no idea that a massage could do to me what he does, but he really is able to go there, to coach you through pain, emotional and physical. He's got such a presence, such a warmth about him, you'll basically want to pay to see him just to hang with him. I had a ton of back pain and wrist pain before coming to see him, I literally thought I had arthritis. Doctors told me I would need surgery. Turns out I just needed Alex, haha! I've probably received from Alex over 20 times, and each time is better than the one before. He's so present and attentive to what he's doing, I can't honestly imagine how he does it for upwards of 2 hours straight. I will be going to Alex forever, he's the best!"

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.
