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.

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.

Is hot stone massage safe in pregnancy?

If you’re ready for relaxation and relief from pregnancy pains, prenatal massage may be a great healing option. Once your prenatal care provider has approved you for pregnancy massage, look for a licensed massage therapist who also has training and certification in prenatal massage techniques.

The safety of hot stone massage during pregnancy depends on several factors including the stage of your pregnancy and where on the body the hot stones are applied. The massage therapist should avoid raising your core temperature or using hot stones on the abdomen. When in doubt, talk to your prenatal care provider.

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.

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.

The mobile team came on time. Set up quickly and quietly to give us a great couples massage. We had the best nights rest! So thankful for this wonderful experience.

This was my first time trying out a mobile massage therapist and I must say LaBronaca provided excellent service. She came with everything music, rocks, oils, etc. I haven't had a massage in months and my back was in pain but LaBronaca gave me the best massage that I've had in a long time. My back feels so much better. I'll be booking services with her again.

Incredible sports massage. I threw out my back on Saturday and have been in a back brace ever since. He did a deep tissue sports massage, focusing on the muscle groups around my low back. The next day, I barely had to use my brace, and have experienced much greater mobility. I’m so grateful!

I very much enjoyed the attention to detail when adjusting various parts of the body and stretching or massaging based on what’s needed, and in a way that can actually help your pain points feel better. In comparison to a massage from a place like massage envy, my experience here felt way more therapeutic and has provided lasting results over these past few days. I highly recommend and will definitely be returning! I love the fact that Shannon offers mobile service.

TLDR (short version of this review): If you are considering Katherine's services, DO IT. I'm blown away. After just 1 session, i got relief from pains in both muscles and joints that have been in pain for years. Professional. Patient. Respectful. Informative. Skilled. I'm still amazed by how my body feels, both moving and at rest. She truly is a healer and I am grateful for her skill. Also dog friendly. Long version: I came to Katherine with pain I didn't know if I would ever get rid of. I was desperate for pain relief, tension relief. My joints were all popping over and over and I couldn't understand why. i had been to chiropractors and primary care doctors with no real results. I didn't know what to expect, as I have only had one other massage ever in my life and it was nice but not much pressure, so not a lot of actual pain relief. Katherine was immediately ready to work with me to tackle my problem areas, all the while teaching me about my body and explaining pains that I thought didn't have much of a real explanation other than ~stress~. She taught me about how my muscles compensate for my posture and activities, and what points of pain are causes by what, and even how massage techniques worked to alleviate those pains. Her work on my trigger points (which she very kindly and patiently explained to me) helped IMMENSELY. I was expecting some kind of release, like popping a knuckle, but it was just a wonderful melting away of the pain as she worked. She talked me through the whole process as she did it. I am not a touchy person in general, and was very tender in places, and unsure at first. Once she released that first trigger point, and I felt that difference... I was a full believer in her methods. When I stood up, the very way I stood and held myself felt better. I could stretch muscles that were locked up for so long I had forgotten that they even could stretch. My joints felt like they had less pressure on them. My mobility increased and feels easier. As a person with mental health and stress struggles, feeling those years of tension leave your body is a feeling like no other. I am almost mad I didn't find her earlier! I could have never predicted this improvement in one 60 minute session. Guys. This is more than just relaxation or luxury. This is pain relief. This is health and wellness. This is healing. If you aren't getting relief need out of chiropractors, stretches, yoga, foam rollers, and/or Tylenol... Message her. Reach out and give her a chance to renew and restore those muscles. It will be worth it. She's also just a great person to be around. She is funny, relatable, patient, and trustworthy. She really is somebody who wants to help heal you and your body, and make you feel safe and relaxed. Also- all you dog people out there. She was so sweet with my dog, who loved her (and I trust that dogs judgement!) Even when my brat of a dog came and jumped up trying to lick the oil she was using, she was super patient, and laughed it off. My dog was legitimately sad when she left. If you're worried about a home massage therapist because of a dog- as long as that dog is cool, she's cool.
