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. 

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.

What is a traditional Thai massage?

Traditional Thai massage is a different experience if you’ve only ever had a Swedish or deep tissue massage. In Thai massage, you wear loose-fitting clothing (often provided by the massage therapist) and start by lying on a mat. Throughout the massage, the therapist moves your body into various seated and prone positions, which stretch and release your muscles and soft tissue. Although your body is moving, the therapist is doing all the work, making it feel similar to supported yoga. The massage therapist will bend, stretch, and compress and lengthen your body using their hands, forearms, elbows and even feet. Don’t be alarmed by the feet! Many studios have overhead supports that allow the practitioners to safely walk on your back, releasing tight adhesions and promoting ease. Thai massage can be both invigorating and relaxing. It is an excellent option for keeping your muscles in good health if you regularly work out, or if you want to overcome a lack of flexibility. Studies show that Thai massage can increase blood circulation, improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension and enhance mental well-being.

What are the different Swedish massage techniques?

There are five main techniques in Swedish massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. Within each category there are various movements, all intended to ease muscle tension and pain. Each movement has a specific purpose for loosening, warming, soothing or stimulating your muscles during your massage. Here is a breakdown of each of the five Swedish massage techniques:

  • Effleurage: Sweeping, gliding, smooth long strokes done with the hands or forearms. These strokes can loosen and warm the body and are said to help stimulate blood flow.
  • Friction: These circular or transverse rubbing strokes are also warming and can get deeper into the muscle tissue. They should be avoided on injured or inflamed areas or areas.
  • Petrissage: Lifting, kneading, skin rolling, muscle rolling and wringing. These movements help with circulation, which stimulates cell regeneration, and aid in loosening tense muscles.
  • Tapotement: Tapping, plucking, cupping and pounding. Tapotement movements can help improve blood circulation and cell rejuvenation, and also relax and release tight muscles.  
  • Vibration: Rocking, shaking and trembling movements. These motions can help muscles release.

Is Swedish massage safe during pregnancy?

As long as your prenatal care physician has cleared you for prenatal massage, it should be safe to indulge yourself in a Swedish massage during pregnancy. In fact, scheduling regular pregnancy massages can have wonderful health benefits for you and the baby. Swedish and other massages can feel great and also have a variety of health benefits, according to studies published by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Some of the benefits of pregnancy massage include reduction in leg and back pain, lower levels of anxiety and depression, and a better overall mood.

To find the right massage therapist for you, read the therapist’s online reviews and call to ask them about their experience with prenatal massage. Massage therapists who have been specially trained in prenatal massage techniques often advertise this area of expertise on their websites. Don’t hesitate to ask questions beforehand, and to communicate during the massage about what does and does not feel good.

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.
Reviews for Middleburg Heights massage therapists

Vanessa came out to my office to do chair massages. The process was simple (she sent a sign-up sheet in advance) and my employees gave rave reviews of their massages! I was initially concerned about whether the last massage (at 4:30) would be as good as the first one (at 9am), but all massages were excellent! Will definitely be booking another date soon!

Patty provided an EXCELLENT massage. In total, the completion of paperwork, her assessment of my health needs/concerns, and the massage itself took about an hour and a half, but she still only charged for an hour. The massage was thorough and relaxing. I would not hesitate to use her services again and I highly recommend her!

Massage Therapist was very professional. I was hesitant to have a stranger come to my home. Steve made me feel comfortable, massage was amazing, he kept conversation to a minimum but we still talked about kids and life. Therapist is very knowledgeable, great advice on how to keep my muscles loose. Will definitely contact again, my husband now wants a massage as well !! Great job Steve, thank you !

I’ve received massages all over the country. She is by far the kindest and most thorough of them all. Her ambiance is comfortable and private. This is MY masseuse for the foreseeable future. She gave me a two hour massage for my birthday and didn’t get tired. Beauty and talent!

Julian was fantastic. Not only did he get me right in (same day appointment), he greeted me with professionalism and kindness. The massage was unbelievable; not too soft but not overly hard...just right. He also kept checking in with me during the massage to make sure I was comfortable and that the pressure was ok. I will definitely be booking with him again.

When I first made a request, Kimberly responded quickly and was excellent in her communication and expectations. After scheduling an appointment, she provided updates on her timing and was very punctual. Prior to the massage, we discussed any chronic issues I was having as well as areas for her to focus on. The massage was fantastic and professional. She checked in from time to time to determine the proper amount of pressure. Not once did I feel uneasy or apprehensive while on the table. In fact, it was quite the opposite. She made me feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed. Kimberly offers a great way to escape from the noise of the day while helping your body get back to center. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality massage. 🙂

SERIOUSLY FANTASTIC! Ryan is seriously fantastic. He communicates clearly ahead of time so I knew exactly what to expect, and right on time he arrived at my home with his equipment. He set everything up, and even brought a clean set of sheets for his massage table. He arrived as promised 15 minutes before our treatment time so we could discuss the treatment before we got started on the clock. And then, once the massage began, I knew I'd made a great choice. He's intuitive with his hands, giving each part of your body the treatment it needs. I left the table feeling fantastic .... energized yet relaxed. I'm looking forward to making massage with Ryan a regular part of my days! You won't be disappointed.

Patty was very professional in working on my leg in particular. She spent well over the allotted time working the tightness out of the leg. She also spent much time doing the normal relaxation massage. She was very easy to talk to and put me well at ease. Her work was outstanding and I would recommend her without reserve.

I was very very pleased with Total Revival services. I travel for work and I found myself in Cleveland with a horrible migraine and neck pain. I was able to get an appointment not only last minute, but in-home and get a late visit that fit my busy work schedule. I was so appreciative. The massage was nothing like I had ever gotten. It was intense, and exactly what my body needed. I woke up this morning feeling like myself. I highly recommend Total Revival. Thank you!!
