"I have degenerative discs and spinal stenosis. Massage therapy from Javier has been a big part of me being able to avoid steroid injections and spinal surgery. He has treated my daughter for tmj and jaw grinding which helped us avoid a very costly mouth guard. Massage therapy from Javier is worth every penny."

"Jessica is not only a consummate professional; she cares about how I feel both before and after the reflexology session. During the reflexology session I was very aware that what she was doing was very important to her and I was very important. She was never distracted or acted disinterested. I will return on a regular basis."

"I am developing painful disc problems in my lumbar spine and was in quite a bit of pain. I am not inclined to head down the surgical route unless there is no alternative. Rachael was an absolute lifesaver in providing early intervention to relax the muscles and relieve a tremendous amount of the discomfort I was feeling in relation to my sciatic nerve pain. I literally could not stand up straight when I walked into her office - and a couple of days later the improvement was substantial. I intend to continue to see her for relief and therapy. She is extremely knowledgeable, professionally trained, and tuned into the physiology of my disc problems. Highly recommended!! "

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.
