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.

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.

Deep tissue massage. Kathy K is the best. I have had lots of massages - I used to longboard skate board and took some hard crashes that jacked up my shoulders. Kathy is the 1st masseuse that has truly helped with the discomfort. She gets all the tension build up out. The 1st time Kathy K she worked on me for 1 hour. Now I do no less than 2 hours. If I could I would see her everyday! Seriously. Kathy K can do all types of massage but for me deep tissue is where it is at. She is the only masseuse I have used who really gets deep into the muscle that breaks up all the tension buildup. THANK YOU KATHY K!!

Diana is an extremely knowledgeable, experienced and personable masseuse. She has a great balance of deep tissue, nurturing, and relaxing massage. This massage was a gift and it was expressed that she came out feeling refreshed and completely relaxed. Diana has an intuitive sense and can find the problem areas without being told where to go.

Terry was amazing! I booked him at the last minute for my boyfriends deep tissue massage! He was very attentive to his needs and worked on areas that were giving him the most problems. My boyfriend gets massages all the time and I really think terry made a real difference. We will be booking again!

Terry was very professional and communicated well before, during and after the appointment. It was obvious that he was very educated about the muscular structure of the body- what he offers though is not what I would consider a massage but more like trigger point therapy or deep tissue physical therapy. It was actually pretty painful ( although effective) His services were not what I was personally looking for - I was wanting more of a deep tissue relaxing massage - the treatment I received from him was pretty painful and I was sore and swollen for a few days after- however it was effective, I had better range of motion after the soreness subsided. He did follow up with me afterwards to see how I was and how I liked it- I told him that it wasn't really for me - he did offer to do it again at no charge but I was a little gun shy to try it again lol. In a nut shell - if you are looking for a relaxing deep tissue, full body massage then this probably isn't going to be that - however if you are wanting some deep body work physical therapy kind of thing then Terry is your guy.

I hired Christopher for a 90 minute massage- after seeing how tight I was we went longer to ensure I was completely loosened up. He’s very talented and knows how to relieve pressure. Excellent! You can’t go wrong with Christopher if you’re looking for deep tissue.

Aubrey did very well in providing a deep tissue massage. The pressure was well in all aspects. She will ask any questions beforehand to get an understanding of what your goals are for treatment. She is quick to respond to messages and our session did not feel rushed. I definitely recommend her.

Kellie was super prompt in my early Sunday am request for 2 relaxation massages. Once she arrived and we started talking she was flexible and accompanying and incorporated a deep tissue massage in as well for my aching hamstrings. She is extremely knowledgeable and has experience in cupping as well as knowledge of Graston technique. I have already referred her to 10+ people! I cannot wait to book her again!

Aubrey is a very skilled, accommodating and responsive professional. I've only had one appointment for a deep tissue massage and did not take advantage of additional therapeutic options like heated stones and others i don't recall. She pinpointed and worked a strained muscle in my right shouler that has been causing discomfort with my neck and worked other areas communicated prior to the massage. Everything about the massage location was clean and accommodating and she was able to book an appointment with less than 24 hour notice. Before, during and after the massage, Aubrey requested input to better tailor her services.

I have used Oskar for two services over the past two days. First and foremost, he is an excellent massage therapist. His deep tissue massage is outstanding, and he was able to get major knots out of my neck and upper shoulder areas. Oskar came back a second day to clean the house. He was efficient, payed attention to detail, and thoroughly cleaned all bathrooms, the kitchen and all rooms in the house. I would highly recommend Oskar for either of these services.
