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.

Do deep tissue massages work?

Deep tissue massage not only feels fabulous, it can provide results. The massage technique targets deeper layers of muscle and your connective tissue. For its ability to stimulate those deeper muscles, deep tissue massage is commonly used during recuperation from sports-related and other injuries, according to the Mayo Clinic. Deep tissue massage has been proved to reduce high blood pressure and a range of other ailments. Deep tissue and other types of massage are frequently used for relieving stress, managing pain, breaking down scar tissue, relieving muscle tension and improving health. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health cites the following as health conditions for which that deep tissue massage can provide relief:

  • Chronic low back pain, chronic neck pain, and osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Labor pains
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fibromyalgia pain and fatigue
  • Headaches

The proper deep tissue massage may also benefit preterm infant health. Cancer patients may experience reduced pain, increased relaxation, and improved mood.

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.

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.

Jooley was very responsive and able to get me on the schedule with short notice. The massage was great as well! Lots of massage therapists do more of a Swedish massage even if I ask for areas of focus. Jooley is able to find knots and problem areas and work them until they melt away. Thank you!

Very professional and helpful person. I had an accident and I was recovering at home. She came to my home with the table and other massaging accessories. Also she carries nice applications for credit card transactions. I have taken lots of massages and can tell she is very good in giving the massage. I recommend her.

We had Kathrina come in and provide massages to our employees. After a stressful week of work, she was able to come in and provide some much needed relaxation. We would highly recommend her for any of your massage needs.

I have been seeing Aleksey for almost a year and he has been very professional and helpful. I really appreciate his deep tissue massages. It is very convenient that he can travel to your home with his massage table. He also used to be a personal trainer which is a plus!

My massage with Chelsea was incredibly relaxing and therapeutical. I walked in feeling stressed and tight, after the massage I felt rejuvenated. She took her time and focused on any area I asked her to, she also adjusted the pressure harder or softer depending on what I prefer. I was extremely impressed and completely satisfied afterwards. I can’t say enough great things about her. If you’re not sure of what masseuse to pick, she is definitely the one.

Lynn was excellent! She responded quickly to our last minute request and did a great job of treating a couple of our team members to relaxing chair massages for their hard work. Will hire her again!

I am an older woman who has experienced many massage therapists over the last 30 + years on both coasts. I have several medical problems and experience severe muscle and joint pain requiring deep tissue massage for relief. I had to quit my last LMT because of large increases in rates and needed someone closer to home and more affordable. I am happy to report that I requested and received a full 90 minutes of DT massage from Maddy yesterday. She not only found and worked on every problem area needing attention with very little direction on my part, but also took my cues on when to talk and when to be silent. Her office is very close to my home, in a professional building on Hall Blvd. It consists of a reception area and 2 massage therapy rooms. It was warm and comfortable and she was personable and professional. I went in stiff as a board and came out like a wet noodle. My next appointment is in 2 weeks, and I'm confident I will be recommending her to my friends and continuing therapy with her on an ongoing basis. My experience was better than expected and I would recommend her to anyone suffering from muscle and joint pain. i was duly impressed with her skill, and for me that says a lot. Thanks Maddy and see you again soon!

She is fantastic, I work long hours and have a lot of back pain and she is able to get everything to relax and move right again. She is very knowledgeable about how the muscle move and finding abnormalities and then fixing them with pain free massage

Lynn is a very skilled massage therapist. She obviously knows what she is doing and also has that intuitive nature finding the areas that need to be paid a bit more attention to. The amount of pressure she uses in her deep tissue technique is perfect. Deep enough to really make an impact, but not to the point of pain. I will absolutely be scheduling another appointment.
