"I've received numerous massages from James. I appreciate his professionalism as he's always sure to ask about my problem area's (injuries, muscle aches, etc.), and he focuses on them throughout the massage process. He's a great massage therapist and emanates a true passion for the profession. He's also very punctual if you're needing to schedule a massage between other activities. Honestly speaking, when the sessions are finished, it is always too soon! I walk away feeling relaxed, and refreshed, my body always feels rejuvenated. I am definitely in! He does an excellent job.

"I received a therapeutic massage from Bowen multiple times. The first one I received included an aromatherapy and facial bonus. All the services I received from Bowen were exceptional in quality. Bowen is a compassionate and talented massage therapist. He is passionate about his work, and this shows through his skills and capabilities. I feel as though Bowen is well aware of his clients needs and may very well be an energy healer. After just one session with Bowen, I felt like a new person! If you are in need of a professional, courteous, and talented massage therapist, then Bowen is your guy! Thank you so much Bowen!! -Misty P."

"Brand new me! I'm relaxed and refreshed. My massage experience today with therapist Mr. Michael Lawes gets 5 stars. Upon meeting Michael, I was impressed by how professional and conscientious he was. I appreciated his wealth of knowledge and therapeutic skills in various massage techniques. I walked away feeling relaxed. I never knew before today how wonderful a massage could be. I have been very tense lately. Todays massage was just what I needed. Additionally, the front desk staff were all very friendly with smiles. As a customer, I believe in honoring great service! Thank-you."

"I got a deep tissue massage for my husband for his birthday & he loved it. The convience of being in your home she made it so personal like you were in a massage parlor. She brought her own scents and sounds really set a relaxing mood in home. She responds very fast and is very affordable. It was so relaxing I fell asleep and I was not even the one getting a massage lol . Will definitely hire her again"

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.
