"I had an appt with Faith at her office. My needs are medical after having suffered a stroke 2 yrs ago. I have specific areas of pain on the left side that are specific to the upper back, shoulder, shoulder blade, neck, upper left arm, left fingers, and the sole of the left foot. All of these areas have trigger points that cause pain to radiate. She listened to me and processed what I was telling her. I liked that Faith attacked the main areas of pain first, going right to work performing detailed manipulation of those areas. As this was our first session, she checked to ensure the pressure was just right and adjusted to areas as needed. It is very obvious that she knows about the human body and that she cares a great deal about her craft. The lemongrass massage cream she used smelled wonderful! I will be seeing Faith again next week for a second session and I think I have found someone who can help with pain management that will improve my quality of life."

"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 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."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

What is the purpose of a deep tissue massage?

There are many reasons to get a deep tissue massage. A deep tissue massage can release adhesions — also known as knots — that are causing painful tension in your muscles. Deep tissue massage can promote healing and ease discomfort related to illnesses such as cancer, chronic headaches, osteoarthritis of the knee, chronic neck or back pain, depression, and more, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. If you have an old sports injury such as shin splints, or a bad back from an old car accident, deep tissue massage can promote healing in your traumatized and scarred soft tissues and get you on the road to recovery. The strokes and techniques used in deep tissue massage work to lengthen soft tissue structures that have stiffened and hardened into knotty adhesions that allow minimal movement. Deep tissue massage can loosen these adhesions so that long-standing scar tissue releases and you can gain more mobility and more freedom from stiffness and pain. And it just feels good. The national average cost of a deep tissue massage is between $70 and $90.

What is the difference between a deep tissue massage and a Swedish massage?

Deep tissue massage and Swedish massage are both forms of therapeutic bodywork. In both modalities, a licensed massage therapist uses strokes administered with their hands or forearms to loosen and relax your muscles and other soft tissue. These releases can promote relaxation, pain relief and wellness.

Deep tissue massage may be an excellent therapeutic choice for people with chronic pain or severe tension in their muscles. The deep tissue massage technique moves below the top layer of muscle and soft tissue to release adhesions in your core muscles. In comparison, the strokes used in Swedish massage focus on loosening and relaxing the top layer of your soft tissues. Swedish massage produces relaxation and well-being, but if you have a long-term injury or back pain that won’t seem to go away, deep tissue massage may be a better option for you. The systematic deep tissue strokes will work to break down any scar tissue or stiff tissues and create ease in your body again.

How much does Thai massage cost?

Thai massage is a form of bodywork that mixes a variety of modalities into one full-body experience. Thai massage therapists may use a combination of yoga, acupressure, classic massage techniques and more. The cost for Thai massage will vary based on the length of the massage, the provider, and where you live. Thai massage requires strength and physical effort on the part of the massage therapist. They move, hold and shift your body into different positions to deeply stretch your muscles and loosen muscle adhesions. Often massage rates are higher in cities where the cost of living and the cost to do business is higher. Experience and training of the massage therapist can also affect rates, as those with specialized knowledge can command higher fees. Here are some examples of average rates for Thai massage:

  • 30-minute massage: $40.
  • 60-minute massage: $65-$90.
  • 90-minute massage: $95-$130.
  • 120-minute massage: $160.
  • 180-minute massage: $220.
