"Paul is amazing, truly amazing. I have had hundreds of massages from many masseurs -- and Paul is easily in the top three for a lot of reasons. I'll key off the word "authentic," meaning that the massage and energy work he does is from the inner recesses of his heart. That has formed a man who is fully aware of himself and his senses -- and it equips him to be in tune with your sensory experience. The authenticity has motivated him to be extremely knowledgeable about bodies and to confidently use his own to accomplish deep and meaningful muscle work. He genuinely wants to help you feel better and accrue all of the benefits of massage. To that end, he is an authentic communicator as well. He'll send you a special link when you book an appointment with excellent resources to help you gain even more from massage. And, if you wish for conversation, you will find Paul engaging and authentic. When I laid down on his massage table, I was sore from a long drive. But his work on my neck and shoulders has reduced the pain, tenseness and restored a range of motion. Paul's knees get into the action as well -- and in a remarkable and effective way. Paul has the depth, the knowledge, the personal commitment, the mastery of various approaches/techniques, and the attentiveness to care for your needs (offering water, a shower, etc. in a genuinely warm and helpful way). I cannot recommend anyone more highly. Wow!"

"Mary gives the best massage that I've ever had. I've been to other massage therapists and no one measures up. She's also very knowledgeable. I had some lymph nodes removed from my left arm and she knew exactly which way to massage it. She definitely has heavenly hands. Once you've had a massage with Mary you won't go anywhere else."

"Steve is very knowledgeable. He knows how to listen and communicate information. He cares about people achieving their greatest potential. I went to Steve for a specific type of massage called cross friction. We went over my concerns and how he could help me. I also had a full Swedish massage, it was very relaxing. As a physical fitness trainer and massage therapist – I would say he is top notch. "

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.
