Tip your massage therapist?

Am I supposed to tip my massage therapist? As I arrived at her salon I heard her patient before me telling her she was going to write her a tip into her check.

This caught me off guard. I always thought my massage therapist was performing a medical service. I mean this massage was prescribed by my chiropractor for a legitimate injury and paid for by insurance (except for a $25 co-pay which I write her a check for). And I don't tip my doctor or my chiropractor or a physical therapist when they provide medical services. Is a massage therapist different? Should I be tipping her? And if so, how much should I tip for an $80 service?
