"I've received a massage from Cara Bradshaw a many times and it is delightful. Her calming presence and surprising strength have helped when my body needs deep tissue work or when I'm in need of relaxation. She is aware of my needs and at the end I am always wishing there was more time."

"Zen Massage was trained in the Chinese method of massage, which is very structured. However, this Zen massage therapist is very individual oriented. She tailors her bodywork depending on the needs of her client - and she is very good. I have multiple health issues, and she was able to understand each issue, provide the appropriate technique, and adjust her pressure and technique based on my feedback. She listens well, is friendly, skillful, and professional. I will be scheduling another medical massage with her in the very near future. I highly recommend her for any type of massage, including the medical / therapeutic massage."

"Lesia (Lasha) is amazing! See was very flexible and understanding with scheduling. She is truly gifted in the art of massage and you can tell it is a real passion for her to help others with therapeutic touch. She was the perfect balance of personal and professional. This was my first prenatal massage (had multiple professional massages before, just not while pregnant) and it was everything I could have hoped for, comfortable, relaxing, and refreshing. I can't wait to go back to her!"

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.
