"I started getting massages from Nicky last spring to help with lower back problems and just overall tightness of the muscles that comes from spending my days sitting hunched over a computer. I have to say she is the BEST!!! After seeing at least a dozen different MT's over the last 4 years since moving to NJ, Nicky was the first person who I've wanted to keep going back to. And for the last 8 or 9 months I've been getting massages from her about once every 3 to 4 weeks with no plans to stop :) From the moment you meet her you discover she is an authentic, good natured spirit who loves what she does. It may sound crazy but when I meet people I always go with my gut reaction and what kind of 'vibes' I get from them, before I can put words to what I like/dislike about them. From the day I met her I have gotten nothing but good vibes from Nicky. She begins each massage with a quick 'grounding' to clear out whatever else in the world is going on, and brings you to the present moment to really enjoy and relax during your massage, without the standard mind racing that usually takes place for the first 20 mins of every massage I've received in the past. Whether I decide to silently enjoy the massage or chat with Nicky for all or part of the 90 mins, it's always a fantastic experience. I recommend to anyone looking for a great massage therapist, to schedule some time with Nicky. You will enjoy it like no other massage, that much I am certain! "

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.
