"Vanessa Morais is a licensed massage therapist, but there's more than meets the eye. I don't want to sound corny, but she truly has magical hands. She has this incredible talent that she brings to the table when it comes to massage. She can massage your neck for a minute casually while you sit in a chair, and you instantly feel as if you're in a powerful massage chair or a spa. A while back, I almost threw my back out at work (My job is intensive manual labor in a warehouse that involves picking up very heavy boxes repeatedly for 8hrs straight daily), and I called her, and she showed up the very next day! Once I was face down on her table, I almost immediately observed how powerful her kneads are, even despite her small frame. Her talent coupled with perfecting her craft through study ensures that you will feel remarkable force in a session! I have personally witnessed her deep tissue method (which usually focuses on a certain trouble area) work wonders with regards to several knots on my body. I did not feel like a million bucks after- I was still recovering the next day at work, and the day after that, I was good as new, no longer feeling the huge knot in the small of my back/tail of my spinal column. It may sound strange that I'm being frank with how her massage didn't immediately cure me. The point I'm trying to make is her massage therapy is REAL- I kind of liken it to a good gym workout, where if the next day I'm sore and the day after that I feel stronger, then I know I did a good job. The same principle lies with Vanessa's massage- I know for me personally, I'd rather select the long-term solution that resolves the issue for good, as opposed to some fix that makes me feel great for a couple of hours but then the next day I'm back to the same problem, and I'm back to square one, scrambling to find a remedy that will allow me to go back to work. I recommend her for any type of massage therapy she's qualified for- I know I talked about her deep tissue method because that's the session I had with her where I was able to see the quality of her work, but I also know she does hot stones, and that's something I definitely trust her doing with me down the line. I believe so much in her craft I tell my co-workers and friends about her and even leave her business cards at the guard shack at my work for anyone entering the building. Before I met Vanessa, I didn't hold the field of massage therapy in the highest regard, that is, I never felt compelled to visit a spa to make an appointment with a therapist. My curiosity began and ended with fooling around with massage chairs at my local Brookstone. After a session with Vanessa, I witnessed firsthand how she's able to elevate her craft to gain the respect of those who don't believe that massage therapy can do much for them. After all is said and done, talk is cheap, so cut yourself a break and check her out for yourself. I challenge you to come back and tell me I was wrong! :)"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a Swedish style massage?

Swedish massage is proven to lower blood pressure and reduce stress, according to the International Journal of Preventative Medicine, as well as to relieve depression and anxiety and aid in recuperation from chronic illness. Swedish massage is also referred to as classical massage, and — contrary to popular understanding — does not originate from Sweden. There are five main strokes, or movements, that make up a Swedish massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. Each technique was created to help soothe, stimulate, soften, and rejuvenate muscles and other soft tissue.

During a Swedish style massage, the client will lie on a massage table in a comfortable position — usually facedown to start. Clients can choose to be clothed or nude; if they are nude, the massage therapist will drape them with a cloth so they are never exposed. A Swedish massage typically lasts from 45 to 120 minutes, depending on client need and pricing agreement. During the massage, the therapist typically employs all of the stroke techniques as a way to ease any tension in the body. Swedish massage is one of the most gentle types of massage and is known for being soothing and relaxing.

What is pregnancy massage?

Pregnancy massage is a therapeutic massage tailored specifically to the needs of a pregnant woman’s body. Before having a prenatal massage, always check in with your prenatal care provider and ask if massage therapy will be safe for you and your pregnancy. A pregnancy massage is much more than just an indulgence. The specialized strokes and techniques used to loosen tight muscles, reduce swelling, alleviate pressure, and ease tension provide positive health benefits for both you and your baby. Experts recommend finding a massage therapist who has received additional training on prenatal massage techniques. This is typically a certification above and beyond their standard massage therapy certification and training requirements. During the massage you will likely lie on your side or in a semi-reclined position; these supported poses keep you and the baby comfortable and free from strain or undue pressure. During the massage, the therapist will listen to what body challenges you are experiencing and work to release tension. The massage should be a relaxing and very soothing experience.

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.

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.

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.
