"I had my first professional massage with Emily, and it was an incredible experience! She did everything she could do to make me feel comfortable, and went over the types of massage and which would best cater to my needs. I would highly reccomend Emily to anyone who is considering getting a massage, either just for relaxation, or to help treat problem areas. "

"I started seeing Mike about 2 years ago. I have a lot of pain in my shoulders from overuse and weight lifting. At my initial appointment, he showed me some exercises to do at home. These have been very beneficial. None of the other massage therapists I treated with have provided at home exercises. Prior to seeing Mike, I used to just shop around for the best price for a massage. Now, I will not go to anyone else (even on vacations). H He always listens to my concerns and addresses them thoroughly. It has been an extreme pleasure working with Mike. I can strongly recommend Mike as both a professional, caring physical therapist and a very nice person to talk to during treatments."

"Natalie was amazing! Not only was she able to relieve the stress & pain in my back, but with her myofascial techniques, she helped my mobility in my arms! I've gone to a number of massage therapists & Natalie rates far above all of them. I will continue to see her whenever I possibly can! Being a big guy, she has the strength in her hands to get deep into the muscle! Awesome! Purely awesome! "

"When arriving for your massage appointment John gives you some time to relax before beginning your massage. He is very skilled in all sorts of massage techniques. When John gives a massage he wants to be sure your muscles are relaxed. He takes great pride in his work. I couldn't believe how much my vision improved after the first massage John gave me. I've seen John for massage for many years and it's still pretty awesome that he can relieve so much tension and pain as well as improve my sleep and vision simply by giving a really great massage. I make sure not to plan anything after a massage with John except to go straight home and enjoy that relaxed feeling."

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.
