"I have gone to be treated by Colleen first in Massage, then in Structural Therapeutic Integration. While I am a jumpy, private person in regards to being touched, Colleen's professional calming presence allowed me to relax into the massage and receive a much needed muscle treatment. Colleen was sensitive to both my verbal and non-verbal responses and helped me to relax deeper as she eased me into muscle Nirvana. While the idea of being naked was a concern (I did wear big full coverage underwear), Colleen had a way to keep covered what needed to be covered and work on bits and pieces of tight muscles using appropriate pressure as she went. If I wanted something different, she was receptive and worked with my comfort limitations. The massage was excellent and I floated the rest of my Day. The concept of Structual Therapeutic Integration was new to me as probably most people, but from my understanding we were working together to realign, work thru the maladjustments I had been holding in my body, and ease me back into the correct posture and alignment we are meant to have. Different from massage in that there is a longer pressure/push on the tight muscles and a working together of Therapist and Client. Colleen would push slowly down a tight muscle as I gently moved the muscle in different poses to relieve the tightness. I could sense that it was helping my whole body work together and work as it was designed. I arrived with a strange clicking noise in my shoulder and some pain due to injury from an exercise DVD. With Colleen guidance and firm pressures, we were able to ease the tightness of the shoulder as well as other upper body regions. As I rose from the table, I could feel as well as see, a straightening of my spine and overall body. A side benefit was the Gift of being relaxed enough to sleep thru the night since the treatment. I believe the STI is a treatment that gives even after the process. Colleen is personable, giving, and has a healing touch in both the treatment types. Making an apportment was easy and worked into my schedule. The environment of her Office is calming, clean, and welcoming."

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.
