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. 

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.  

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.

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 deep tissue full body massage?

A deep tissue full body massage is a form of healing bodywork. At your first massage, your massage therapist will do a brief intake. They will ask you questions about the type of pressure you’d like to receive during your deep tissue massage, any previous massage experience you’ve had, and any injuries or sensitivities you have. You can remain clothed, or the massage therapist will provide draping so that even if you’re not wearing clothes you are always fully covered. Deep tissue massage may be a good option for people with chronic pain or muscle tension. The systematic deep tissue strokes will work to break down any scar tissue or stiff tissues and create ease in your body again. Massage therapists use their hands, forearms, fists and knuckles to knead and stroke your muscles and loosen adhesions. Although deep tissue massage work is intense, it should not be painful, so communicate clearly with your massage therapist so they know if you’re having any discomfort. The national average cost of a deep tissue massage is between $70 and $90.

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.

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.

Why is it called a Swedish massage?

Everyone loves Swedish massage. It’s soothing and relaxing and, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, is proven to relieve pain. Swedish massage can also relieve symptoms associated with chronic illness, arthritis, depression and other ailments. The term Swedish massage is actually a massive mixup, according to Massage Magazine. The technique would be more aptly named classical massage, which it is often called. What we in the United States refer to as Swedish massage was actually invented by a Dutch physician named Johan Georg Mezger. Mezger systematized and gave French names to the five massage techniques used today in Swedish (or classic) massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. The confusion began when the techniques systematized by Mezger were attributed to Per Henrik Ling, the founder of the Swedish Movement System who had practiced his similar techniques in his gymnasium. In many parts of the world, Swedish massage is called classic massage, and most massage therapists will understand either term.

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.

Requested Takeeyia’s services to surprise my wife with a professional massage for our anniversary. My wife had nothing but rave reviews. And says she felt amazing after. Takeeyia was incredibly professional and flexible when we ran into a scheduling issue. We will definitely be using her services again in the future, and highly recommend her.

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!!
