"I have been seeing Jess for massage therapy for almost 4 years now. Her hands are magic!! It doesn't matter how much stress I have in my life (and I usually have a lot), after an hour of her work, I feel amazing and ready to face the world. She really knows how to focus on trouble areas, and truly cares about the well being of her clients. I won't see anyone else, and HIGHLY recommend her!!"

"I have been training with Jeff for several weeks now, and so far my experience has been awesome! He developed a personalized workout plan tailored for my goals, I feel like he really paid attention to my individual needs. His workouts are challenging, but I don't feel like they're too hard or too easy, which is something that bothered me about other trainers I have worked with in the past. I have lost five pounds so far, and at the rate I'm at, I will be at my goal weight very soon! Thanks, Jeff!"

"I just had the Body, Mind & Sole massage package, It is a foot soak and scrub followed by a massage. It was Excellent. the herbs in the foot soak combined with the epsom salt was amazing. My massage therapist explained to me all the benefits of soaking in epsom salt and the different herbs. I loved it so much i bought one for my Mom :)"

"Loved the massage and lack of stress by having her come to my home! Highly professional, personable, and VERY competent. Hate writing reviews like this because I'm so afraid her customer base will grow and she won't have time for me. Worth every penny :-)"

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.
