"I recently went to Rachel because my current massage practitioner is on maternity leave. Rachel is fantastic and wonderful at her job. I was very impressed and felt instantly better after my massage. I would highly recommend her and if my prior massage practitioner does not return then I found someone new."

"I was in a car accident and was having muscle spasms and pain that made it difficult to do my office job. My chiropractor suggested that I see Ken at Northstar and it was a game changer. Ken was extremely proficient with various techniques, and had me on the road to wellness quickly. I don't feel that I would have had as good of a final result had it not been for the massage therapy I received. The office is clean and Ken is very professional and excellent at his job."

"Upon first meeting Whitney, she's very down to earth while maintaining a high level of professionalism. I prefer therapeutic massage with pressure ranging from medium to deep and that's exactly what I got. But she also adjusted her pressure perfectly when I needed less. I always felt so much better after Whitney worked on me. The one and only complaint is have is that she moved! Oh well. If you're in her area, I highly recommend this awesome therapist. Whitney is amazing!"

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.
