"I have literally had over 200 massages over the past 25 years across the U.S. and Europe. Kate is easily one of the top three therapists I have seen. Her deep tissue and stretching techniques allow her to separate herself from the vast majority of her competitors. Don’t assume larger companies with over-the-top amenities are going to provide you a better experience. It will always come down to the individual massage therapist and far too many in the Richmond Metro are simply inexperienced."

"My experience with Tim was excellent!! I arrived a couple minutes before my assigned time and he was ready for me. After a short chat time where we got to know each other and he asked about particular areas of need, he led me to the massage room where everything was ready. Once I got on the table Tim used his expert techniques and addressed all my worrisome areas and the rest of me simply melted under his hands. His touch was wonderful, his manner was compassionate, he only spoke when spoken to or to ask if the pressure was OK. I left his studio feeling completely refreshed and without the constant pain I was having in the problem areas. Here I am a day later and still no pains and feeling rejuvenated and healthier than before I met Tim. Would I recommend Tim to others? BY ALL MEANS YES!!! I am looking forward to my next visit to Tim and his wonderful hands!!"

"I have been a licensed massage therapist since September 2013 and have continued to grow as a therapist since, gaining insight from clients and massage mentors! I knew I had a gift for massage as I held my fathers hand during an illness, and we connected through healing touch in a new way. Want to bring this healing to all of my clients. I am confident adjusting to your individual needs - but my favorite massage to perform is a 90-120 minute hot stone. Your body will thank you if you commit to the regular care a massage therapist can offer, and I can’t wait to meet you!"

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.
