"My massage therapist, Vernita, is awesome. I normally get a massage from her once a month. I am often stressed from my job, but after Vernita's healing hands, I am so relaxed. The atmosphere is very soothing; the kinks and knots just seem to melt away. There have been times that I've heard myself snoring. That's how calm and tranquil I feel. I highly recommend Vernita and Soothing Agave."

"I work in the fabrication industry and I am constantly on my feet all day and work with a variety of heavy materials. On a daily basis I deal with degenerating discs in my back. The spasms are so bad that they literally drop me to my knees. After treatment at my chiropractor he recommended that I see a massage therapist. I went to see Julie. I gave her my background information as well as the issues I was having. Julie made me feel very comfortable and at ease. The environment was very relaxing. All I can say is by the time Julie was done I felt great. She is extremely professional and not only has she won my business but I recommending her to my family and friends. Five star establishment."

"The week before Christmas I was still searching for the "perfect" gift for my ever stressed R.N. daughter. I found personable, gentle, knowledgeable, prompt, professional, serene Anwar. Upon meeting him, his eye contact was unwavering and his sense of purpose undeniable. His "interview" would be with my son but as his massage lingered on, arguments ensued over who would be next. All three emerged from their time with Anwar with looks that needed no explanation. When we closed the door behind him we all agreed that in addition to his therapeutically magical massages, his mere presence in our home had brought a sense of peace and tranquility. Anwar is not to be missed."

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.
