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. 

Do massage therapists offer remote or virtual services?

Ask massage therapists near you about the possibility of remote services. You might come across profiles that state the therapist is offering remote services such as lessons and techniques you can do on your own, with a friend or with a partner.

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.

How long is a Swedish massage?

A Swedish massage can range from 45 minutes to 120 minutes or more. A longer massage allows the massage therapist to give you an all-over massage and then circle back to focus on areas in need of extra bodywork. Some massage therapists recommend that your first massage be longer to give the therapist time to learn more about your health and any injuries or pain before providing you with a healing massage. The longer your massage, the more it will cost. Swedish massage is made up of five body strokes designed to relax, heal, improve circulation and maintain health. The techniques are called effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. During Swedish massage, all parts of the body are addressed, and the client is often unclothed and draped with a cloth. Swedish massage is proven to be beneficial to mental and physical health, and has been shown by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine to boost the immune system.

Is hot stone massage safe in pregnancy?

If you’re ready for relaxation and relief from pregnancy pains, prenatal massage may be a great healing option. Once your prenatal care provider has approved you for pregnancy massage, look for a licensed massage therapist who also has training and certification in prenatal massage techniques.

The safety of hot stone massage during pregnancy depends on several factors including the stage of your pregnancy and where on the body the hot stones are applied. The massage therapist should avoid raising your core temperature or using hot stones on the abdomen. When in doubt, talk to your prenatal care provider.

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.

How much does it cost to get a Swedish massage?

Having a Swedish massage can promote relaxation, relieve stress and help you feel great. The national average price range to hire a massage therapist is $70-$90, with prices varying based on length of massage and location. Costs may be higher for a Swedish massage if the client would like services in their home or office, as the massage therapist has to transport their massage table and account for transportation costs. Geographic location can also affect costs, as regions with a lower cost of living and a lower cost to do business will have lower rates than pricey areas such as San Francisco or New York. Here are some examples of average Swedish massage costs:

  • $50 for a 60-minute massage in North Texas.
  • $55 for a 60-minute massage in Central Texas.
  • $60 for a 60-minute massage in New Jersey.
  • $100 for a 60-minute massage in San Francisco Bay Area.

Melissa is absolutely amazing. I’ve had many massages in my past from some of the best places and Melissa by far has outdone every massage therapist I have ever had. Her pressure was just right and she covered every single muscle area and body part. She took her time and did not rush. I had a lot of neck and shoulder pain with knots that have been building up for months and she managed to get them all out. Afterwards I felt like a feather and as is I was walking on a could. She’s amazing and I will be my massage therapist for life.

Positive experience. Was willing to fit appointment into my schedule, offer flexible massage time for first appointment and arrived well on time. Listened to my problem and reason why I decided on having a therapeutic massage at this time. Well organized with all needed tools for the job. Personally, I like all white towels--hence only 4 stars--but small matter. Very pleasant and professional overall. Will use again, as needed.

Josh was ammaaazing! I got my husband an in-house massage and from communicating with him initially to the end, it was such a pleasure. He is a professional and my husband loved it! I loved having him in my house. I felt safe. He wore a mask throughout and was just so calming. His presence is calming! Don’t hesitate ... book a massage today. I will do this again and again! Oh, and he came with everything that he needed from the table to the linens to the oils. Thank you Josh!

I contacted Eric about doing five 1-hr massage sessions for us at my sister’s home for her birthday. He responded to my request within minutes. He was extremely professional and called me two days before our appointment to discuss our preferences and expectations. He was on time the day of our event and had a great energy about him. His consulted with each of us about our problem areas and confirmed preferences before each massage. I thank Eric for making my sister’s birthday a memorable experience and will definitely book again.

Omgoodness, what words can I gather to personify the skillful, magnificent talent that is Maestro. Maestro or should I call him the Master of Massage, instinctively knew exactly where I was in need of attention and he focused on those problem areas. I’d just recent experienced an injury which required surgery, Maestros massaged the area & helped to alleviate some of the sore and stiffness from it. The use of Maestro’s thumbs or whatever kneading technique he used on my lower extremities was unimaginable, he got to all of my kinks & left me feeling on cloud 9. I will definitely use this LMT again and again, book with him & you will definitely get the best experience for your m

I found Erick to b very personable. Our conversation flowed effortlessly. I had some soreness As a result of a strenuous workout. Half hour after his departure I realized I was pain free. I would without hesitation recommend Erick as a very knowledgeable masseuse who has the patience to accommodate his clients. Thanks for the great massage.
