"Iris seriously works magic on on sore achy muscles. She genuinely cares about her clients needs and adjusts accordingly. I’ve never been comfortable with getting massages by anyone until her. She has a very comfortable energy that just sets you at ease. I can not sing her praises enough! I swear this woman has magic hands or something, because I have had other massage therapists work on me and no one....I mean no one makes my back feel like ‘butta’, but she does EVERY time! I’m never disappointed, only that it’s over lol."

"Sarai is a very talented massage therapist with an engaging, fun personality- a winning combination! She works with you to schedule times that fit into your day and is extremely responsive in her communication. On top of all that, she can actually give a true deep tissue massage if you request one, not just a light "feel-good" massage like you'll find at most spas. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to relieve tension and enjoy their spa experience from the moment Sarai walks through the door. "

"I was having some sciatica issues and had been looking for someone with strong hands who would be able to provide some relief....little did I realize that would be accomplished but the time he took to find out what exactly was going on and some great advice on what to do at home for relief was an added bonus. It was by far the best massage ever and the warm and friendly greeting throughout the whole session was another bonus as well. I will defintely schedule 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.
