I usually tip 20%or up depending of the person who did it. I usually tip more when there’re student.

If the masseuse is a pro and you enjoyed the massage go for a big tip(you will be NEW!!!), if not go for 10%.

Definitely tip 15–20 % UNLESS it’s in a clinical setting (like if you’re using health ins to pay for it). If that is the case, you are not expected to tip at all. I just asked my friend, who is an N.D., this same question last week and this was her answer. I like it.
