Should I tip a self-employed masseuse?

I'm about to get a massage from a friend who runs her own one-employee (herself) massage business. When I pay her fee (which all goes to her), should I add a tip too? I never know how much of tipping is about "here's something for YOU since the bulk goes to management" (not true in this case), and how much is about, "I know you SAID the price is $50, but you should get a little extra because you did such a good job."

And for those of you who were wondering, this is just a massage -- not a massage with a happy ending. For THAT I'd definitely tip.
