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.

How long is a Swedish massage?

A Swedish massage can range from 45 minutes to 120 minutes or more. A longer massage allows the massage therapist to give you an all-over massage and then circle back to focus on areas in need of extra bodywork. Some massage therapists recommend that your first massage be longer to give the therapist time to learn more about your health and any injuries or pain before providing you with a healing massage. The longer your massage, the more it will cost. Swedish massage is made up of five body strokes designed to relax, heal, improve circulation and maintain health. The techniques are called effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. During Swedish massage, all parts of the body are addressed, and the client is often unclothed and draped with a cloth. Swedish massage is proven to be beneficial to mental and physical health, and has been shown by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine to boost the immune system.

Is hot stone massage safe in pregnancy?

If you’re ready for relaxation and relief from pregnancy pains, prenatal massage may be a great healing option. Once your prenatal care provider has approved you for pregnancy massage, look for a licensed massage therapist who also has training and certification in prenatal massage techniques.

The safety of hot stone massage during pregnancy depends on several factors including the stage of your pregnancy and where on the body the hot stones are applied. The massage therapist should avoid raising your core temperature or using hot stones on the abdomen. When in doubt, talk to your prenatal care provider.

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.

What is a deep tissue full body massage?

A deep tissue full body massage is a form of healing bodywork. At your first massage, your massage therapist will do a brief intake. They will ask you questions about the type of pressure you’d like to receive during your deep tissue massage, any previous massage experience you’ve had, and any injuries or sensitivities you have. You can remain clothed, or the massage therapist will provide draping so that even if you’re not wearing clothes you are always fully covered. Deep tissue massage may be a good option for people with chronic pain or muscle tension. The systematic deep tissue strokes will work to break down any scar tissue or stiff tissues and create ease in your body again. Massage therapists use their hands, forearms, fists and knuckles to knead and stroke your muscles and loosen adhesions. Although deep tissue massage work is intense, it should not be painful, so communicate clearly with your massage therapist so they know if you’re having any discomfort. The national average cost of a deep tissue massage is between $70 and $90.

Incredible deep tissue massage! I have had over 100 deep tissue massages and she was the best! Yuliya has the strongest hands and did a great job of addressing all of the areas that were tight. She is very responsive and showed up on time. I would highly recommend her.

Excellent! One of the best massages I have gotten in a while. At first I was a little concerned about being massaged on the floor, but it made all the difference with the massage. She was able to stretch me out and maneuver. I got a Swedish massage and my boyfriend got deep tissue. We will both definitely be using Mula again. Thank you!

Vinksee came to my house to do a deep tissue massage for my husband. He felt very relaxed throughout the massage. Vinksee pays attention to problem areas and adjusted his pressure to my husband’s liking. Very skilled and kept it professional. Definitely recommend him!

Buckle up and be ready for an awesome massage. He came fully equipped with heated table hot stones massager and super strong intuitive hands. If you think you know what deep tissue massage is you are likely to redefine that after massage with Eric. Very intuitive and responsive. Just don’t challenge this guy to go deeper because he surely will. No disappointments here. I highly recommend him!!!!

Eric provided a great massage experience the last time I was in the FLL area. He replied promptly to my request and arrived right on time. He brought a complete setup and was one of the few providers who delivered on a good deep tissue massage. Will not hesitate to contact him again next time I am in FL.

For our 4 year anniversary we decided to stay home and get a massage in our living room! Cassie brought another girl with her so that we could have our massages at the same time. They were on time and very sweet! The massages were excellent! The best I’ve had and I’m not just saying that. I’m always disappointed when I say I like deep tissue. I was completely satisfied! Definitely recommend MASSAGE THERAPY IN MOTION!!

Rika was very responsive to messages, showed up a few minutes early to set up and did an excellent job of massaging just the way I requested. I have been looking for someone who could perform a deep tissue massage properly and rika wasn't afraid to apply pressure which I really appreciated. I very much enjoyed my massage and meeting rika and will certainly use her services again. Thanks rika!

Mila was amazing, she showed up on time. Was extremely responsive and professional. She is small but don’t let it confuse you, she is strong! I’m a more muscle bound person and she was able to stretch my legs and arms/shoulders and gave a great deep tissue massage. 10/10 will be a repeat customer.

Fantastic work! Eric has a gift for his craft! I have a hard time finding someone that gives deep tissue massages and Eric did just that without tiring out! Yes I was tortured for 90 minutes in a good way and he reassured me that the pressure points would alleviate my back pain. There was a point that I was crying and laughing all at the same time. I slept like a baby and when I woke up o had no lower back pain, nothing for 2 weeks. I had to then book him for a 2nd appointment. Overall, he is in high demand so schedule your appointments well ahead of time. Great service!
