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! 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!

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.

I have great difficulty finding a female massage therapist that can give a legitimate deep tissue massage and am so happy to have lucked into Carla. She didn't show up on the list when I entered my criteria and nobody who did responded to my outreach, so I was surprised when I received her message. We scheduled an appointment that fit my schedule perfectly and she showed up on time with her table and accouterments, set up quickly and proceeded to give an amazing deep tissue massage. Her rates are very reasonable considering her skillet and she is as professional and courteous as they come. I couldn't recommended anyone more wholeheartedly.

Not one of but thee best massage I ever had. Isa has her own style of massage that works best for me. A combination of Swedish and deep tissue. Without me having to explain, she knew exactly which parts of my legs and back were in the most pain. During the massage, I asked to extend it and she was happy to. Thank you Isa! You’ll definitely be hearing from again! 🙏🙏🙏

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!

My husband and I had a 90 minute deep tissue massage. Excellent. Hit all the right spots. Very responsive to specific requests. Contacted Cynthia via email. Received a response immediately and she was at our hotel room in an hour. I like that, as when you need a massage, you want it now. Experience was so great, booked another two massages for the next day. The perfect start to a vacation after a long flight. Highly recommended!!!!!!!

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.
