I’ve been facilitating healing through Massage Therapy for 4 years as a Neuromuscular Therapist. I started my journey after an assault that almost claimed my life and that of my partner, this event change my life forever. After about a year of self inflicted paralysis and the end of the 1 year of trauma therapy victims of violent crimes allotted me, I started to seek ways to deal with the aftermath of what happened to my partner and me. First I needed to be able to go out in public, which I couldn’t, so I started doing yoga ( because I had read that trauma sensitive yoga helped vets with ptsd why couldn’t they help mine). Though my practice I got my life back however I will never be the same man again. I took a teacher training for yoga because I wanted to be able to help others as I was helped but there was a problem, both my partner and I were being prescribed narcotics for our pain and essentially hooked. I wanted out, I started doing research into massage and started to see a therapist, through the help of massage and a prescription used to help people come off of narcotics safely I am now free from the weight of opioids and neither my ex partner not I suffer from any chronic pain that we once thought we would never be free from. This was a miracle and one that I had to share with others so again I learned everything I could and more. I share this story because I know what real pain is like. I also know what it is like to be a slave to your prescription bottle; and I want to help anyone out there that wants it. If you make a commitment to sessions I will make a commitment to you, and we can figure out the money thing together. If you have chronic pain or you are recovering from an injury please give me a call. I want to give you a viable alternative to narcotics. If you just want to relax and treat yourself right, I do wellness massage as well deep tissue and Swedish and my own combination of them all. Don’t forget Valentine’s Day for your special someone I have gift certificates available.See more

I spent a summer exercising with Amanda. We met a couple of times a week. Every time we met she had a plan for the day. I would say that I am pretty fit. I am not the strongest person, but I have pretty good endurance. That being said, Amanda's workouts pushed me to my absolute limits (in the best way possible!). She introduced me to burpee ladders (where you add a repetition of a burpee to every set you complete) and many other forms of exercise. She incorporated into her plans so many different forms of exercise (light weight-lifting, running, static exercises, yoga, etc.). She took my likes into consideration and often included them in her plans. She also introduced me to many other forms of exercise, which made exercising with her very exciting and fresh. What was great about Amanda was that she was very knowledgeable. If I came in one day and she had a plan for the day, but I told her that I didn't want to strain or work on a certain part of my body because I was injured (or I told her I wanted to work on a different part of my body), she was very quick to come up with a different plan for the day. And the workouts never felt sloppily thrown together! There was a very impactful progression to her workouts. I also never felt discouraged at the end of her workouts. I always looked forward to exercising with Amanda because she was perfectly balanced in creating an uplifting environment AND pushing me to my absolute limits. I cannot recommend Amanda highly enough! She has a very healthy lifestyle, she is incredibly knowledgeable, and she is MORE than willing to meet you wherever you are in your "walk with exercise" and help you to reach your goals!See more

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 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.

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.

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.
