"Benjamin is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and inspires you to work hard and do your best while making it fun and adjusting it all to your personal needs and fitness level. I have struggled with my weight and with limited mobility due to severe osteoarthritis. Benjamin has taught me many different techniques to help feed and heal my joints and improve my range of motion and strengthen my muscles so they can better hold my body without as much pain. My quality of life has improved tremendously since I've started working with Benjamin. I used to have to go to the chiropractor at least once a week to help unlock my crickety body, but now my body is starting to self-adjust. He's taught me how to move and position myself and stretch to allow my joints to reposition themselves. I now only go the chiropractor when I have an injury that needs attention vs. weekly maintenance visits prior to his care. His massage work is targeted as well as relaxing. He massages my muscles before we workout so he can see where I am restricted and is able to release those areas so they are more productive in the workout. Workouts can vary based on how my body is feeling at the time, physical restrictions I may have and our mutual interest at the time. Some days I'm crawling on my hands and feet around a field like a spider, while other days I bounce on a trampoline to increase flexibility or toss a medicine ball back and forth to build strength and balance. He keeps it fresh and also teaches me things I can do at home on my own as a substitution for working with him personally. Then we end our sessions with mediation, qi gong poses, and envisioning techniques that help build and nurture the spirit. I truly can't say enough good things about him. I see him as someone who is dedicated to helping me save my life by teaching me to love my body by feeding it strength and gentleness. I can honestly say that working with Benjamin is one of the best and most loving things I have ever done for myself. Kara Shouse St. Paul, MN"

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.
