"Complete relaxation. This is how I describe my massage session with Akira. I stand a lot with my work, so my back, glutes and legs are often very tensed. Akira was able to realize the areas that were tense and through deep tissue massage, work to relax the muscles. By the end of the 120 mins session, I felt the most relaxed I have in a long time. From my experience, I can see that Akira is very respectful and cares about his clients. He first reviews the intake form to see what expectations the client has and to determine if there are any medical conditions that might affect the therapy. Throughout the session, Akira checks to make sure the pressure is okay. The mood of the room is calm with soft tranquil music. The massage table is very comfortable and warm and the draping is professional. Overall the experience was wonderful. Akira was professional, very thorough as a therapist, focused on his work (and not checking his cell phone/texting like many therapists do), reasonably priced and his office was clean. It is great to have Akira in the community."

"The service Mary provides us truly exceptional. As a stressed college student, I use appointments with Mary to help me unwind. During and after the massage, I am noticeably less tense and happier. I highly recommend Mary for anyone looking for a great massage therapist!"

"Albert was very professional and knowledgeable about fitness and message. I frequently participate in weight lifting competitions so I came to him for a sports massage to relieve pain and discomfort. Not only did he provide a superior massage, but he took his time and explained to me tips on how to warm up prior to weight-lifting, as well as showed me how to maximize my lift. What an excellent experience! I will definitely be going back."

"My experience with Women's Wellness Massage was amazing. After losing my precious angel late last year to a miscarriage, I felt alone and helpless (even through the support from my husband was great). I had never heard of a fertility massage and researched it greatly. I came across Women's Wellness Massage. I message Ashley and told her my story. She was responsiveness and gave me the background information on the massage. I was super nervous my first time, but that changed the moment I walked into Ashley's front door. She listened to my individual story. She wrote down notes and gave me information that would help my particular situation. Then the massage was absolutely fabulous! It was super relaxing and I felt at ease the entire time. She is super knowledgeable about the female body! I learned so much. I went two times. The second time, I went a month later. She remembered everything we had discussed before, as if I was a good friend. A few weeks later, I received a positive pregnancy test. Ashley was the first person I sent it to. I feel that she has been apart of this entire journey. I am 12 weeks along now and I sent Ashley every ultra sound and she even checks on me. I could not recommend her enough. She is apart of my pregnancy journey and I will never forget her kindness."

"I suffer with chronic tension headaches, after one massage session with Yeong I was pain free, not just because of the massage (as that is a temporary way to relieve the pain), but because of the advice she gave me to correct a few habits that were root causes behind the headaches. I also highly recommend taking her yoga classes, amazing! "

"Katie is fabulous at deep tissue massage! I have gone to a few different spas in the area for massages and they do not compare to her! She listens to me AND to my body. If she finds knots and trouble areas she works to get rid of them. And every time I feel better after seeing her, unlike the other places I’ve been to. I highly recommend her!"

"John Williford is the first massage therapist who understood the neck pain and overall body soreness I was experiencing. He works the small muscles as well as the large muscle groups. He finds those trigger points requiring release. John is very schooled in the mechanics of the body and how everything works together holistically. John has quite the toolkit and continues to educate himself with different techniques that can be used to relieve body tension and to help individuals recover from surgery or injury. I can't say enough good things about John and The Tranquility Company. They are a part of my permanent wellness team!"

"Laura Lee listened to me and then proceeded to attend to the areas which I was most concerned with. Having had other experiences with massage therapists, I appreciated that she did not just pretend to listen, but actually listened and acted upon what we discussed. Excellent!"

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.
