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. 

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
  • HIV/AIDS

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.

Excellent massage for both my wife and myself. We were both super tight in our shoulders and neck and felt awesome after the massage. Caitlin was very professional and her knowledgeable of massage therapy as well as natural health remedies was a blessing. She made sure to ask us both if we had any prior injuries for her to be aware of and what specific areas we wanted her to focus on. Will definitely use her services again in the future and would recommend her for anyone wanting a professional massage.

There are no words that can describe how Freaking Amazing Terry! I have multiple problems with my low back, neck, spine and right shoulder. I was in severe pain and my husband suggested that I should have a massage to relief some of the pain I was having so I looked on the Internet for a massage therapist and I found Terry. After reading all of the other great reviews, I decided to go with Terry. I was so lucky to find her. Terry's skills as a massage therapist are out of this world. She knows the exact places on the body to massage to help alleviate the pain you are feeling. I highly, highly recommend her and I can't say enough wonderful things about her.

I was looking forward to present my husband with a couples massage for his birthday. We confirmed for 1pm, but due to a lady minute issue the other massage therapist had to reschedule for 2pm. I informed Caitlin to see if she could come later and she said it was fine. I then got another call stating the other therapist would be an additional 45min late. I informed Caitlin out of courtesy since the massages were supposed to happen at the same time, and let her know I didn't want to change her scheduled time again because of someone else, but if she was running late it would be fine. She then said she needed to cancel because if the other therapist was late twice she'd likely be late again. I am not sure what the other therapist's timing had to do with her, but 30min before my 2pm ain'tshe stuff she would not be coming, and decided not to respond to any more of my messages

She called me 20 minutes late told me she had to cancel because she did not have her table in her car she was across the street going to the bathroom why wouldn’t you have the table in your car since this is what you do for a living and why won’t you just call me and tell me that if you got your table you going to get it if it’s all right for me to come back and then take care of the massage and I thought it was kind of weird that she asked me to supply the sheets for the massage very unprofessional

He was 20 minutes late and then took another 25 minutes to get setup. Massage ended up being good, but the beginning was a rocky start. I wasn’t actually sure if he had ever done this before. Does not come across as very confident but I think he gave me some extra time due to being late

Let me start by saying that both my husband and I have had good and bad massages in our life. We had our first massage with Terry in our home this evening and it was amazing ~ she was PHENOMENAL!!! We were pleased with Terry's communication skills. In addition to her pleasant personality she was very professional, polite and inquired as to which areas were giving us trouble. Her questions were able to determine what we needed and wanted out of our session. She listened to the answers and tailored our treatments accordingly. She took her time with each of us, ensuring that we were comfortable and that our pillow placement to support our head, belly & legs were perfect. She respected the fact that we are not very "chatty" during massages and her communication was focused on ensuring our comfort and relaxation in order to facilitate a better experience. Sure, lots of people can give a massage; but, Terry is an example of someone who is truly gifted at what they do. We had a lot of tension in our shoulders, neck and back. Her movements were fluid and progression was good. Her technique was exactly what our bodies needed. Her pinpoint, trigger-muscle release technique and attention to detail were immaculate! We never felt any strain or discomfort on any part of our body. We each felt the stress melt away and we each felt like a new person. We truly felt exponentially better after our session. The best word I can think of to describe it is ~ TRANSCENDENT!!! We highly recommend Terry! You get exactly what you ask for. If you want someone who is good at working out those knots and is a great listener, Terry is your gal. Don't waste your time and money in going anywhere else; get scheduled with Terry!
