Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a massage therapist during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Ask your massage therapist if they offer consultations over a video chat or phone call. If they do, ask them any questions you have about the upcoming appointment. For example, ask what precautions they're taking to keep both parties safe due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You might also want to ask if they offer gift cards that can be used at a later time, remote services or even virtual lessons for you or members in your household.

Also, ask how they plan to handle payments, and whether you can pay through an online or digital method instead of with physical cash or credit cards. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a massage therapist when social distancing?

Because massage therapy requires person-to-person contact, social distancing is not possible. However, you can ask massage therapists near you if they can offer remote services instead, such as lessons for you and your partner.

If you don’t want to book an appointment with a massage therapist right now, but you will in the future when the pandemic subsides, consider paying your massage therapist in advance or tipping them anyway. You can also ask about buying a gift card for future work. 

Do massage therapists offer remote or virtual services?

Ask massage therapists near you about the possibility of remote services. You might come across profiles that state the therapist is offering remote services such as lessons and techniques you can do on your own, with a friend or with a partner.

Does a massage therapist need to enter my home?

Many massage therapists operate their businesses out of their own homes, though some offer mobile massages and come to your home. You should ask the massage therapist where they typically operate and if they are making any special accommodations to better observe the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing

If you must cancel or delay your massage therapy appointment due to COVID-19, consider asking the therapist if they can offer massage techniques or lessons via video chat, email or some other digital format. You can also ask if it's possible to buy gift cards that can be used at a later time.

Can I use digital payments to pay for a massage?

Many massage therapists accept digital payments through Venmo, Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle and other online platforms. Even businesses that do not typically accept digital payments may be changing their methods to practice social distancing. Just check with your massage therapist before the appointment to see how they handle payments.  

How can I find out if a massage therapist is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

The definition of an essential COVID-19 service provider varies from state to state and city to city. To see which businesses are considered essential in your area, visit the official government website of your state or city.

You can also read CISA’s publication on identifying critical workers to find out more information on a national level. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do deep tissue massages work?

Deep tissue massage not only feels fabulous, it can provide results. The massage technique targets deeper layers of muscle and your connective tissue. For its ability to stimulate those deeper muscles, deep tissue massage is commonly used during recuperation from sports-related and other injuries, according to the Mayo Clinic. Deep tissue massage has been proved to reduce high blood pressure and a range of other ailments. Deep tissue and other types of massage are frequently used for relieving stress, managing pain, breaking down scar tissue, relieving muscle tension and improving health. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health cites the following as health conditions for which that deep tissue massage can provide relief:

  • Chronic low back pain, chronic neck pain, and osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Labor pains
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fibromyalgia pain and fatigue
  • Headaches

The proper deep tissue massage may also benefit preterm infant health. Cancer patients may experience reduced pain, increased relaxation, and improved mood.

What is a traditional Thai massage?

Traditional Thai massage is a different experience if you’ve only ever had a Swedish or deep tissue massage. In Thai massage, you wear loose-fitting clothing (often provided by the massage therapist) and start by lying on a mat. Throughout the massage, the therapist moves your body into various seated and prone positions, which stretch and release your muscles and soft tissue. Although your body is moving, the therapist is doing all the work, making it feel similar to supported yoga. The massage therapist will bend, stretch, and compress and lengthen your body using their hands, forearms, elbows and even feet. Don’t be alarmed by the feet! Many studios have overhead supports that allow the practitioners to safely walk on your back, releasing tight adhesions and promoting ease. Thai massage can be both invigorating and relaxing. It is an excellent option for keeping your muscles in good health if you regularly work out, or if you want to overcome a lack of flexibility. Studies show that Thai massage can increase blood circulation, improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension and enhance mental well-being.

What are the different Swedish massage techniques?

There are five main techniques in Swedish massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. Within each category there are various movements, all intended to ease muscle tension and pain. Each movement has a specific purpose for loosening, warming, soothing or stimulating your muscles during your massage. Here is a breakdown of each of the five Swedish massage techniques:

  • Effleurage: Sweeping, gliding, smooth long strokes done with the hands or forearms. These strokes can loosen and warm the body and are said to help stimulate blood flow.
  • Friction: These circular or transverse rubbing strokes are also warming and can get deeper into the muscle tissue. They should be avoided on injured or inflamed areas or areas.
  • Petrissage: Lifting, kneading, skin rolling, muscle rolling and wringing. These movements help with circulation, which stimulates cell regeneration, and aid in loosening tense muscles.
  • Tapotement: Tapping, plucking, cupping and pounding. Tapotement movements can help improve blood circulation and cell rejuvenation, and also relax and release tight muscles.  
  • Vibration: Rocking, shaking and trembling movements. These motions can help muscles release.

How much are pregnancy massages?

Prenatal massages can be a safe and therapeutic way to alleviate the aches and pains of pregnancy. A prenatal massage can promote a sense of relaxation and well-being for expectant mothers. The national average cost for a pregnancy massage ranges between $70 and $90. The cost of a pregnancy massage will vary depending on where you live, the length of the massage, and the massage therapist. Typically, the longer a massage, the higher the cost. Some massage therapists charge the same rate per minute, regardless of massage length, while others charge less per minute for longer appointments. Here are two examples of average prenatal massage costs:

  • Therapist A: Offers a 30-minute massage for $45, 45 minutes for $60, 60 minutes for $75, 75 minutes for $90 and 90 minutes for $105.
  • Therapist B: offers a 30-minute massage for $45, a 60-minute massage for $85, a 90-minute massage for $115 and a 120-minute massage for $145.

We used Ashley for an in-home massage. She was warm and friendly coming into our home. She came fully prepared to provide a spa style massage table, music etc. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a recovery massage or just a relaxing massage experience. We will definitely use her again!

Just had a nice relaxing experience. Very attentive at replying and scheduling appointments. I like the convenience of a mobile massage and flexibility to schedule a session. The technique was great and was a great way to unwind after a busy work week.

I get massages about twice per year. Michael's was the best I've ever had. The combination of trigger point and stretching was different and effective - it really worked to resolve my areas of stress and pain. Thank you very much. Looking forward to next time.

Celma was very responsive via scheduling and listened to my wife's and my needs. She was incredibly professional and made us feel comfortable having her in our home. The massage was great, not overbearing, but worked the areas that needed loosening. Would love to schedule with her again!

Mike was AWESOME! I get a lot of massages but this one was the most relaxing, sensual yet effective one I’ve ever had! I’m in town for 2 days for work, every spa was booked but Mike was able to get me in super quick! Def saving his info for next time I’m in Denver!

Michael was a nice, kind, professional- positives. My experience was frustrating and a massage never should be that. I meant to not tip, bc to travel to me, the price skyrocketed which i was ok with,& had he followed my lengthy instructions, i would have tipped, but i fat fingered and it looks like i tipped 15% uoon looking at my card statement. Maybe it’s my fault that I plan everything and I am never late to anything, but if you’re setting up a mobile massage I would imagine one would plan to be at someone’s home 10 minutes early to set up and let them undress and such. Michael was really late and then he ended my massage early. I specifically mentioned please only work on each limb one and a half minutes per side and he spent way too much time on my limbs. The stretches were great but I do not like my limbs worked on for more than one and a half minutes per limb per side, & when I request a specific thing and request that upper back neck shoulders be worked on more than anything I expect that because I’m paying for it. I don’t like when therapists decide what I need. I’m paying you to give me what I want, Because that is the pain I walk around with all day every day. I just hate walking away from massage feeling robbed of my experience as well as my pocketbook and I felt that in this situation.

Pierre was great! I was traveling to Denver and had a tight schedule. He was quick to respond and was able to work around my schedule. He was really attentive and the massage was phenomenal! Strong hands and worked out some knots that have been bothering me from traveling. I will definitely be coming back when I’m in town again.

I generally reserve reviews till I've tried someone a few times, I have back issues from lumbar up through thoracic. I was in pain, my muscles in my back were tight as a rock and she worked them out. She has also been responsive to messages later about the massage, seems to have a good sense of humor, and apparently I need to work on my sitting posture

I was nervous because I didn't want her to feel nervous because she was coming to my hotel. However, she is a 100% pro. She made me feel comfortable and I was the one that was concerned. She did an amazing therapeutic massage that left me feeling so loose and headache free that I am only going back to her. Her fees are nothing compared to what she provides. Super professional and a great therapist!
