And in fact at first glance from outside you would not think this was a good place in fact I used to live walking distance from there and hadn't been for years finally a friend told me about them so I gave them a try first off with Crystal she is a very good massage unfortunately she no longer works at this location so then I went to you having massages with Sonya very strong which is what I used to like now days April is my therapist she does just the right pressure for me.
I have gotten a number of massages over the course of my life. None are in the same league as Siam Thai. The actual location atop the Century Center is well designed and calming. My masseuse was a woman named Amy. I requested hard pressuee, and boy did she deliver. For those that have not done had Thai massage before, it is unbelievably executed. The above was my original review which culminated in a 5 star rating. But I have to drop it to 4 stars now. I had bought a gift certificate off their website, which was to be emailed to my brother as a gift. However my brother never received the email. That is fine and understandable. However for the past couple days, they ignored my email, Yelp message and text message. I decided to call. On the phone they tried to dodge things still, which seemed questionable at best (possibly shady). However supposedly they will honor the order confirmation that I received. Again the issue is not that my brother did not receive the email. It was everything that followed.

Forty-three states, the District of Columbia and five Canadian provinces currently offer some type of credential to professionals in the massage and bodywork field—usually licensure, certification or registration.[78][117] Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia require some type of licensing for massage therapists.[118] In the US, 39 states use the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork's certification program as a basis for granting licenses either by rule or statute.[119] The National Board grants the designation Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB). There are two tests available and one can become certified through a portfolio process with equivalent training and experience.[120] Between 10% and 20% of towns or counties regulate the profession.[96] The National Certification offered by the NCBTMB does not mean that someone can practice massage in any state.[121] These local regulations can range from prohibition on opposite sex massage, fingerprinting and venereal checks from a doctor, to prohibition on house calls because of concern regarding sale of sexual services.[96][122]


I was pretty excited to visit Erawan based on the great reviews it received.  However, the masseuse… I was pretty excited to visit Erawan based on the great reviews it received.  However, the masseuse twisted my neck too hard (or in a wrong way?) during one of the Thai massage stretches.  I woke up the next day with a ton of neck soreness, but I tried to shrug it off as normal post-massage soreness.  But ever since the day after until now (5 days later), the pain has been excruciating and I've barely been able to move my neck.  To make matters worse, I was here in Japan for my honeymoon so it made it really hard for me to enjoy the week.  Visitors beware!

In the US, licensure is the highest level of regulation and this restricts anyone without a license from practicing massage therapy or by calling themselves that protected title. Certification allows only those who meet certain educational criteria to use the protected title and registration only requires a listing of therapists who apply and meet an educational requirement.[122] It is important to note that a massage therapist may be certified, but not licensed. Licensing requirements vary per state, and often require additional criteria be met in addition to attending an accredited massage therapy school and passing a required state specified exam (basically the certification requirements in many states). In the US, most certifications are locally based. However, as of March 2014, some states still do not require a license or a certification.[citation needed] However, this is thought to change eventually as more regulatory bodies governing the profession of massage are established in each state. Furthermore, some states allow license reciprocity where massage therapists who relocate can relatively easily obtain a license in their new state. Not all states provide this option.[123]
During hot stone massage, your body is not only weighted down with hot, smooth stones, but the masseuse also uses the stones to massage your body. It's like being caressed by the smoothest (rollerball-like) hands, but also being scorched by them for a "Yeeooowwww!….Ahhhhh" effect. A hot stone massage is mostly relaxing, but it also is more invigorating than your run-of-the-mill massage, thanks to the almost-too-much heat bringing you back to focus on the moment instead of letting you drift off. The heat helps release the tension in your back and shoulders, mostly, so those muscles can be worked on more effectively.

Whether it is for a full day of pampering or just a quick visit for a pick-me up, Thai Massage and Day Spas is the place to go for rest, relaxation and enjoyment. Our locations are in the Galleria area and we offer many services, including custom facials, spa manicure and pedicure, body treatments and our authentic Thai Massages, you will truly feel you’re in Thailand.

Very rude. Customer service is non existent. They do not listen to what your needs are. The Prices change on a whim. Massages are cut short of full time. You can hear people in the lobby while in the massage room. This is not your typical relaxing massage therapy. The massage itself was nice and firm and cupping was done properly, but it isn't worth the highest prices in the area when they end early, treat you with a lack of respect, even yelling at you and other customers, and the yelling continues as you go into the massage room as the front desk answers phones because there is no music or sound proofing or attempt to speak to people at a reasonable volume. The woman at the front desk seems so aggravated and irritated that you are even there.
The most amazing massage I've ever had! Coming from someone who gets massages regularly in different countries, I think that's saying a lot. There was some confusion when I arrived for my appt. like the yelp booking did not get logged into their appt book. But they had therapists available and I got in quickly. I got a 2 hr. full body massage and a 45 min. Head massage. Yok was amazing. So strong and intuitive. I will definitely be a regular each time I come to Tokyo for work each month!
In response to the business owner, I mentioned this on my call to her but there was no other strenuous or unusual movement of my neck during this period. I've also had to visit a chiropractor three times since coming back to the US due to the extreme pain, and he also affirmed that bad technique during the massage must be the reason (based on my alignment). Very poor experience, and I really wish Erawan would rethink their refund policy for situations like these, as this has become a very expensive massage due to the additional chiropractor expenses accrued.

Neuromuscular therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries.
I love going to Traditions Massage and Facial Spa. Although I live in Tennessee my friend and I try to go when i'm in town.

I highly recommend them!!! Sidney did an amazing job with my facial, as did Maggie with my massage. I did't want it to end!!

An Indian physician named Shivago Kumar Bhucca, a contemporary of the Buddha, is often credited with developing Thai massage. The impetus was to give monks and nuns the flexibility to sit for long hours in meditation. Whatever its genesis, massage was considered such a crucial aspect of medical treatment in Thailand that until the early 20th century, the Thai Department of Health included an official massage division. Thai massage is based on releasing blockages along ten lines of energy called sen, which are similar to the meridians of traditional Chinese medicine. The technique incorporates stroking and kneading of muscles, manipulation of joints, and pressure applied to specific points in order to balance the body’s four elements—earth, water, fire, and air. But there’s also rocking, breathing, and lots of stretching—Thai massage is often referred to as “lazy yoga.”

We apologize for your wait time experience during your visit. While we are happy that you loved your service, we are in the process of training new front desk for this reason. We are grateful for our growth that will, at times, make us busy at the front. We have taken your concerns to heart and created an alternative for times when we are busy, (which is a sign of growth). Thank you for your positive review as we would't know how to better ourselves if we do not know.
The second reason it is not that commonly found is that it requires special training. Many American massage therapists are serious students who have traveled to Asia for intensive programs, but others might have to take a weekend workshop. You might want to inquire about their training before you sign up. If you live in a major city, you might be able to get a high quality, no-frills Thai massage for a reasonable price. 

Thai Spa on Sahara is open from 11am to 11pm...as if they understand the life style of those of us in Las Vegas. I must have been here 30 times in the last 2 years, so you could say that I have enjoyed the massages at Thai Spa...it's simple, just get into the room, get on the table, and get worked on. Most of the time, I call for a reservation to see my favorite therapist and reserve my time. They are easily my favorite Thai massage place in Vegas...and they must be popular since they just opened a third location on Charleston. This also means there are now two locations that I can go to see my favorite therapist. I normally get 60 min for $65, but when you get couples, you save $5 each...need deep work? Relaxation? Or Stretch? All the therapists at Thai Spa will provide you with the same price...ask for the stamp card to accumulate 10 and get next one for free. I was told that you can get all the locations in one card. There is no shower or fancy changing room...just you, therapist, and table.

The difference between the two exercises is that during a massage, it's the responsibility of the massage therapist to carry out the work, while the individual on the receiving end reaps the benefits. Increased flexibility, oxygenation of the blood, postural alignment, and elongated muscles are all prospective enhancements resulting from a session of Thai massage. Fluidly, one's body is positioned by another in a series of poses aiming to promote health and relaxation. Yoga requires poses to be achieved through the efforts of a single person, and the notion of contorting oneself while concurrently meditating is no simple task. Thai massage is, in fact, yoga for those of us who are inherently unmotivated.
Applying pressure to tender muscle fiber adhesions (known as "muscle knots") can hurt, but there is a difference between that type of discomfort and pain due to excessive or inappropriate pressure and stretching. While it may be difficult to avoid some discomfort when targeting muscle knots, a qualified, licensed massage therapist should be able to adjust the massage pressure and movements so that you are not in pain.
I'd been in Tokyo, Japan for four days and have done extensive walking. I had been feeling pain to my feet and hip.  I finally decided to Yelp a place and saw good reviews. I made my appointment through Yelp. Make sure you give them the day, time, name and type of service on your first communication. It's helpful...I finally came here and felt so much more flexible and the pain on my hip is gone. My feet may require rest to not feel anything but certainly feel so much better. The staff is wonderful and are very careful with the stretches they do. I highly recommend to make the trip here. Is worth it!

Like having your feet worked on? The therapist uses finger pressure and techniques such as kneading and rubbing to promote relaxation and healing in the body. Reflexology is based on "reflex areas" on the hands and feet, whose energy is believed to be connected to organs and other body parts. By applying pressure to the reflex points, the reflexologist can balance your nervous system and stimulate endorphins, the body's natural pleasure response, which reduces stress and discomfort.
AD 1776: Jean Joseph Marie Amiot, and Pierre-Martial Cibot, French missionaries in China translate summaries of Huangdi Neijing, including a list of medical plants, exercises and elaborate massage techniques, into the French language, thereby introducing Europe to the highly developed Chinese system of medicine, medical-gymnastics, and medical-massage.[8] 

Expect a painless and soothing massage experience. These types of massages are excellent for clearing your head and re-centring yourself. Reach higher levels of mindfulness and press the reset button on your body, mind, and spirit. You will leave this massage feeling perfectly rested and relaxed. Traditional relaxation massage is recommended for people who are new to massage therapy.
Although thousands of years old, Thai massage didn’t arrive on these shores primarily until the 1990s, when Westerners began practicing it. Burynski took her first course in 2001 in California. “I felt as though I had met my massage soul mate,” she says. She took her first trip to Thailand in 2003, studying at the Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, one of the hubs of Thai massage education.
My fiancee and I got a couple's massage this weekend, utilizing their fall special, and we had a great experience. We're first timers to spas in general, but we were met with a kind staff who gave us good direction and communicated well. The massage itself was great. Head to toe and definitely worked out all the kinks I had in my body. Both of us felt so relaxed after the 90 minutes were up. And they give you an option of a hot tea or water after the massage is complete.
You've probably seen these strange contraptions at conventions, the mall, nail parlors, and maybe even your office. Chair massages have you sitting face forward in a chair so the therapist can massage mostly your neck, shoulders, and back. The good thing is you don't have to take off your clothes or have oils slathered all over you. The bad thing is you don't get a thorough whole-body massage as you do with other methods, and, since this is often done in public places, it can be very distracting and not as relaxing. Depending on the massage therapist, however, a chair massage can really get the tension out of your upper body.
A licensed massage therapist should ask you about your health history before the massage. Thai massage may not be safe for someone with health conditions such as disk herniation, osteoporosis, recent surgery, or cardiovascular disease. If you're considering trying Thai massage, it's a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before getting treatment to discuss whether it's appropriate for you.

Got a 90 min. Thai massage for $100 with $5 discount through yelp or their website. Left $20 tip. Clean establishment. It begins face down with only your underwear on, if you choose. Make sure your face is properly centered in the face pad because you will get a proper stretching, so your upper body and pelvis area will be thoroughly pressed in a good way. Professional massage. Easy parking. Called in an almost immediate appointment.

AD 1779: Frenchman Pierre-Martial Cibot publishes ‘Notice du Cong-fou des Bonzes Tao-see' also known as "The Cong-Fou of the Tao-Tse", a French language summary of medical techniques used by Taoist priests. According to Joseph Needhan, Cibot's work "was intended to present the physicists and physicians of Europe with a sketch of a system of medical gymnastics which they might like to adopt—or if they found it at fault they might be stimulated to invent something better. This work has long been regarded as of cardinal importance in the history of physiotherapy because it almost certainly influenced the Swedish founder of the modern phase of the art, Per Hendrik Ling. Cibot had studied at least one Chinese book, but also got much from a Christian neophyte who had become expert in the subject before his conversion."[14]
Bridging the gap between the theory and practice of Thai massage, The Encyclopaedia of Thai Massage explores the history, spiritual traditional and ethical codes of Thai medicine, alongside a detailed analysis of Thai massage therapy. The book uses full colour photographs and diagrams to illustrate the variety of techniques, as well as examples of routines for treating specific disorders. This second edition is updated with a new layout, photos and expanded text, providing an exhaustive handbook, complete with a section on the main energy meridians and acupressure points, making it the perfect tool to accompany anyone studying this modality.

Unlike most places I've been to on the island, a 20 minute heads up will reserve you a guaranteed spot on the massage bed.  Other places on island I have called, one would have to make an appointment 3 or 4 hours in advance or even have the massage given next day. This is due to a lot of staff, other places have 1 or 2 people only on stand by. Convenience for me is very critical because of my busy schedule and this place is the best I've been to.

Whoa! Did that just happen? Mind blown! Datchy was not playing games. Easily one of the best massages I've ever had and I've had a lot of massage. Don't be the last to know. She's an artist. If I had to find something to complain about it would have to be the frigid temp. She made every attempt to keep me covered by multiple blankets but it was still chilly chill chill. In all honesty with that quality of work I'd consider a luxury not a necessity to feel warm. Do your self and your friends a favor get that good work.

A considerable amount of privacy is allotted in most places offering Thai massage, making it an ideal solution for the individual who isn't quite up for the challenge of yoga. Let's face it, not everyone is equipped with the physique or poise necessary to squeeze into spandex and curl into the Downward Facing Dog position. Yoga, for the most part, is available in group sessions. Though spandex is not a requirement, it's not uncommon to practice among a variety of other adults, all of whom happen to be more flexible than you. For a more intimate experience, Thai massage manages to produce similar somatic results without the awkwardness of being observed by seemingly elastic peers.

The ambience is very nice, all wooden with orchids with incense or candles scent wafting about and steam coming out of a humidifier in the hallway. The room itself for massage is nice: private, spacious with relaxing zen music playing. You don't really hear any other movement or customers in the hallway. Very tranquil ambience. They pay attention to cute and chill details.
One of the most remarkable healing techniques on the planet. Works with the pulses of the energy pathways known as meridians in Chinese medicine. The term tui na (pronounced "twee naw"), which literally means "pinch and pull," refers to a wide range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapeutic massage and body work. People in the West may refer to Chinese massage as tui na.
Sports injuries occur during any type of physical exercise, not just while playing a sport. Common sports injuries include tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, lower back pain, torn ACL, torn ligaments, and sprains and strains. Improper use of weights or lack of proper equipment are often to blame. Other times, accidents happen. If we have fitness goals in mind, it can be easy to ignore our physical limitations. Sports massage helps alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity where minor injuries and lesion occur due to over exertion and/ or overuse. Massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Sports massage incorporates a combination of techniques including stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response technique similar to acupressure or shiatsu. This treatment tends to be deeper and more intense.

I think I can say with confidence that most Thai massages in the US would be not processed 100%. These types of extreme massages can't be administered to the full extent what authentic Thai massages can actually do. Is just too painful or better very uncomfortable and ones have to love the torture it brings to the table.  Clients want to be comfortable and pampered (I do at least, lol).

Gabi M: "Do you want to join me for a massage after dinner?" Me: "Of course!" (I'm not one to ever pass up a relaxing massage) Gabi: "It's a thai massage so I'm not sure you'll like it" Me: "A massage? What's not to like" Hours later I'm ready for my relaxing massage and a few minutes in I realize thai massages are NOT my usual relaxing massage. The masseuse is literally kneeling on my back getting every single knot (and I have a lot of them!) out while I say "ouch" about every 3 seconds. She continues to tell me "relax" throughout the massage and I continue to respond with "ouch." She then asks me if I want her to walk on my back..."umm no thank you!" An hour later I have every knot out of my body, but I wonder how anyone could stand more than 60 minutes of this torture. I paid my $90 + tip, enjoyed a small cup of decaffeinated tea and headed back to the hotel for a lovely night of kid free sleep. The next morning I woke up with such sore shoulders although after an hour of (additional) torture at Barry's Boot Camp felt really good. In fact, I may even make a trip to Siam Orchard a regular thing during my monthly trips to SF.

I was excited to see Thai Massage has made it to PCB. I was also excited to discover what a gem this place is. After inquiring of my problem areas, Serie suggested I select Thai / Deep Tissue combo. Without a doubt, it was one of the most professional, healing massages I have experienced. Serie is most gracious and knowledgeable and obviously loves her profession. If you are looking for a healing, therapeutic and relaxing massage, you MUST call Serie. As a finishing touch, she will serve you a most delicious, personally steeped cup of lemongrass tea to compliment the massage. Oh, and those wonderful warm towels!!! Don't pass this place up!! Your mind and body will thank you!
Our first Thai Massage and it was wonderful. I booked the 90 minute Royal Couples Massage package and thanks to some protest in the City, we were 5 minutes late. So because of that, we had to cut our massage time early but the lady in the front was nice enough to discount us for the inconvenience. We got to use the steam room afterwards too, which was very clean and spacious for showering/getting ready after. The masseuses were both ladies but we didn't catch their names. They were very professional and damn, do they know how to get those knots out! If I worked or lived out in SF, I'd be here more often, especially for that Office Syndrome Massage I saw listed.

They also have a punch card - get 1 massage free after every 10 massages. It is $70/hour without tip and it is worth every penny. Technicians are never lazy and they work real hard the entire time (no taking 5 minutes to bring a towel, walking in/out, or getting lazy just patting your back for a few minutes). I really enjoy the place and I can't wait to go back
Your entire treatment will be specifically designed to your own needs. As an example, one procedure might target a specific issue area such as back or muscle pain or stiff shoulders, while an additional might be employed as an all-over treatment. The therapist will use all kinds of therapeutic massage techniques including pressing, squeezing, kneading, pounding and pummeling to invigorate your acupoints to unblock your energy channels and help facilitate the flow of your chi. Knuckles, thumbs, and even elbows will be used, and there are many variations to oil-based massages. Tui Na professionals use the backs of their knuckles and hands similar to a rolling pin, which is believed to support and disperse the QI. Unlike various other massage techniques, all your limbs will be moved quite frequently.
The possible adverse effect of Thai traditional massage is an issue to be discussed. The question to be addressed is whether Thai traditional massage could cause any problem to cardiovascular system. A recent report by Buttagat et al. found that Thai traditional massage “was associated with significant increases in hear rate variability (increased total power frequency and high frequency).”[4] Hence, it is no doubt that the massage might alter some cardiac function and can be problematic in the patients with underlying cardiovascular disease.
This place is absolutely wonderful!  I have gotten massages all over the place from Asha, Heavenly Massage, Massage a Envy, Ritz Carlton hotel, resorts in Mexico etc... although all of the mentioned places are awesome and have their own individual thing that makes them awesome however I think I have finally found the place and therapist that I will be seeing regularly.  Summer, she is an amazing therapist who literally moved my body in ways that I didn't think we're possibly - cracking and stretching my back, deep and thorough massage of my head/scalp, neck, shoulders, back, legs and even a phenomenal massage of my feet!  I am telling you, if you haven't been here, it's an absolute must that you go and see Summer.  This massage is completely different from the tradition deep tissue massage that you will receive at other places, Summer literally even walked on my back and used her feet/knees to massage my muscles.

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest and simplest techniques to optimizing health and enhancing weight loss. It is a hands-on approach to wellbeing that acts on the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Regular massage treatments allow the body to remove toxins more effectively and help relieve post-exercise pain and recovery time. Treatments also enhance muscle flexibility, can improve workout performance and prevent injuries. By increasing your body temperature, massage therapy can increase your Basal Metabolic Rate: the rate at which your body burns calories. Multiple studies have found that regular massage therapy is effective for relieving pain, reducing stress levels and preventing and treating both acute and chronic muscular injuries. Studies have also concluded that massage therapy is an excellent supportive treatment for healthy weight loss and regular treatments can also reduce cellulite, body circumference and help tone muscles.

Awesome massage! I was in need of a little R&R and the Thai massage really got the spot. I love that Thai massages use no oil (so you don’t crisco your clothes after) and that there is a ton of stretching involved. It’s like doing yoga but better because they do all the work for you! Prices are very affordable. It’s a great place to come with a few friends and then have lunch next door!

One of the greatest Persian medics was Avicenna, also known as Ibn Sina, who lived from 980AD to 1037AD. His works included a comprehensive collection and systematisation of the fragmentary and unorganised Greco-Roman medical literature that had been translated Arabic by that time, augmented by notes from his own experiences. One of his books, Al-Qānūn fī aṭ-Ṭibb (The Canon of Medicine) has been called the most famous single book in the history of medicine in both East and West. Avicenna excelled in the logical assessment of conditions and comparison of symptoms and took special note of analgesics and their proper use as well as other methods of relieving pain, including massage.
Came here needing a good massage after receiving a very weak massage while on vacation. Had a 60 min Thai massage with a male masseuse. If you like hard pressure, you can't go wrong with this massage. My masseuse really used firm pressure to target the knots in my shoulders. After an hour of this, my whole body felt a lot better. I'll definitely be coming back on a regular basis for these awesome massages

A couple days after the Thai massage, my back pain seemed worse than ever. I updated my review and was almost immediately contacted my Siam. They really care about how their customers feel! We spoke and she suggested I try the aroma massage instead. Thai massage just isn't for everyone I think! Also, I really didn't know what I was getting myself into and probably didn't need strong pressure. Anyway, I came back for the aroma which is like a combination of Swedish & Thai - it was great. All the stretching and deep muscle work of Thai with the relaxation of a Swedish massage. I'll definitely be back for another! Thanks Siam Orchid! 

The "Chinese Traditional Massages" was established in 2015, with over 10 years of extensive experiences and came out of a need to specialize these Chinese Tui-Na and the Zhi Ya Massage Therapy methods for customers which have issues with their bodies and seek an alternative pain management and gain comfort, healing, pleasure. In order to really see the difference in this field is to compare and try us out.
Ive had massages all over the country from Hawaii and Cali to New York and Jersey as well as Philippines and Guam ... Anna, Noi and Choi from Thai Spa 2 are hands down the best thai masseuse's I've ever experienced. I prefer deep, strong massages ... and the strength of any of these 3 can make u cringe, but i love it!  Once you try thai, u'll forget about any other types of massages!

This place can be heavenly with the right massage therapist!!! My body tends to be tight and I really need that deep tissue, good pain that comes from very strong pressure, which is why I seek Thai body massage. Anna is absolutely amazing, excellent at deep tissue/ strong pressure massage--a true healer. Anna likes to help people feel better and her intuitive massage skills, vibe and words confirm this. Anna is very strong and called herself a "knot buster," which is wonderful and true! She found knots and sore spots and broke them. I feel so much better in my body. I've been to her a few times and left very happy and satisfied each time. If you don't like intense pressure and pain therefrom, Marisa is better for you. One day I got a Groupon (15 min foot, 60 min thai body massage, and steam room access) and went to book with someone Yelp said did deep tissue well, rainy, because Anna wasn't available. I booked with rainy but was given Marisa, whose massage was nice but gentler and did not meet my expectations for extreme deep pressure and good therapeutic pain from tension dissolving in knots. I later found out if you're asked if you prefer a male or female massage therapist at check in, when you already booked a particular person online, then you won't be getting who you requested, so double check who you're getting if that happens to you if you're expecting to get a specified massage therapist. After I expressed I didn't feel satisfied from that massage with Marisa because I needed more pressure, the owner / manager was extremely concerned that I was disappointed by a gentler massage and enticed me to come back to get the type of massage my body needed! I've been to well over 100 different massage places and Siam orchid Thai massage has the best customer service. No proprietor has ever been so concerned or kind after my experience was not great. I am very impressed and appreciate them. The foot massage was gentler, not like some other places where I start to sweat from the pain/stimulation of imbalanced acupressure points. Super relaxing and firm(not ticklish). The ambience is very nice, all wooden with orchids with incense or candles scent wafting about and steam coming out of a humidifier in the hallway. The room itself for massage is nice: private, spacious with relaxing zen music playing. You don't really hear any other movement or customers in the hallway. Very tranquil ambience. They pay attention to cute and chill details. You get some loose pajamas to wear. If you can, I recommend the steam room access. After the massage you bring your stuff to the back where the steam room is. Looked clean. There are locks and lockers to stow your belongings. I noticed they had flat iron and curling iron to touch up your hair.
    So if you read my previous reviews, you will see that I use to only see Summer....she answers the phone so its easy to ask her direct for an appt with her.....A month ago, Summer was gone for 2 weeks for Chinese New Year. Lily was still there so I ended up seeing her twice...and enjoyed it. When Summer got back, and to this day, I have yet to see her again for an appt. It almost seems like shes avoiding me....which might be okay, except after I had what can only be described as the WORST appt I have had...by far....given by Lily.

Traditional Thai massages have treated people for over 1,000 years and has worked wonders. This ancient healing art helps to achieve a healthy body and a relaxed mind through the healing power of touch. Thai massage works the joints and soften tissues by pressing, pulling, stretching, and manipulating the body. The massages we offer will improve your flexibility, increase vitality, ease pain, and promote circulation, while offering a fully relaxing experience.


Massage is based on pressure points along ten key energy lines of the body, which power all physical, mental and emotional processes. If there is an energy imbalance, the body's harmony is disrupted, causing pain and disease. Massaging along these key energy lines can break energy blockage, stimulate the circulation and restore general well-being. In this form of massage, the recipient is fully-clothed, in a loose-fitting top and pants. Massage oil is not used.
Noticed this place while driving by, we stopped by for a much needed massage! Julie was my massage therapist. She was wonderful. I had a bunch of knots and she was strong enough to kick my knots butts! I rather enjoy the pain bc I know that afterwards I'll be in less pain! Will come back. The price was good in comparison to other places and I will definitely be back as she recommended I come more often bc the knots are rather large bc of my extensive workouts.
Thai massage typically works with compression — rhythmic pressing movements directed into muscle tissues by either the hand or fingers. Thai massage usually takes place on a futon mat on the floor, with the client wearing loose or stretchy clothing like yoga gear. The therapist is also on the mat and moves your body into various stretches and positions, without any work on your part. This is why it is sometimes called "lazy man's yoga". Thai massage can be both relaxing and energizing, so it is a good choice if you want to be active after your massage.
Yes, yes, yes, yes. But no if you can't handle pain :)) I enjoy coming here. It is painful at times. The first part of the massage you literally have a therapist stepping all over you. It is painful especially on your lowers legs and upper arms. However, it feels EXTREMELY good on the back especially on big, painful knots. The second part is an amazing deep tissue massage where no muscle is forgotten. After I come here my entire body hurts for a few days after. Once the pain goes away I feel the difference and how my back indeed feels much better. After 7-10 days the pain comes back and I try to get another massage (I don't always come here though). I have been here a few times, most of the times waking in and never requested anyone in particular. All therapists I had were great. The technique and the way the massage is done is very similar and everyone was very good. They also have a punch card - get 1 massage free after every 10 massages. It is $70/hour without tip and it is worth every penny. Technicians are never lazy and they work real hard the entire time (no taking 5 minutes to bring a towel, walking in/out, or getting lazy just patting your back for a few minutes). I really enjoy the place and I can't wait to go back
While on vacation in Las Vegas, my upper back, shoulders, and neck were starting to get tired/tight from me lugging around my camera gear (DSLR camera, battery grip/pack, & speedlight flash) around my neck for 4 days at roughly 4 hours each day. My legs and feet were also tired from all the walking, standing, and running on the Strip. I was looking for a massage and the place that I was staying at offered massages but I found the prices to be too expensive.
A 2004 systematic review found single applications of massage therapy "reduced state anxiety, blood pressure, and heart rate but not negative mood, immediate assessment of pain, and cortisol level", while "multiple applications reduced delayed assessment of pain", and found improvements in anxiety and depression similar to effects of psychotherapy.[54] A subsequent systematic review published in 2008 found that there is little evidence supporting the use of massage therapy for depression in high quality studies from randomized controlled trials.[55]

$70 for an hour is reasonable but their massage is MUCH better than any other traditional place that you have visited.  The only downfall is that this place isn't one of the posh, tranquility type places like Asha (get extra pampered, zero sound/noises in entire facility, heated beds etc) - unfortunately I could clearly hear through the walls of conversations taking place but they didn't last long so it didn't really bother me.  
The BEST Thai massage I've ever had. My bf said the same thing so I'm pretty sure no matter who you get they'll be amazing! We went for the traditional massage with no oil for 90 minutes and that felt like the perfect amount of time. We paid about 150 usd for the both of us before tip. Read the tips on how to find the place, I found that really helpful. And don't forget to tip! They speak enough English so you don't feel like communication is a problem. I'll for sure be back whenever I'm in Tokyo. Go here , you won't regret it!
Wow! Thank you again, Yelpers! I've been dying for a massage, but I've been so busy in addition to my therapist being on vacation at my usual spot (right upstairs). I called last night when I finished work and asked for an 8p appointment for 90 minutes and boom, appointment was made - 5 Stars right there. Upon walking in, I was greeted by 2 females who were both very nice, gave me compliments, which again, earned 5 stars; I came after work in scrubs, and I knew I looked like crap lol! We chit chatted for a few minutes and she escorted me right into the room. The bed was so amazingly soft! I swear the massage beds have down stitched into it somewhere. I waited a few minutes and a lady walked in, but I didn't get her name. The massage started off rather mediocre, kind of like a first blind date where you don't expect much. We talked the whole time, and I was totally fine with that, and about 30 minutes in I thought - meh, nothing great. She started working towards my legs, but I had told her in the beginning that my shoulders were the culprit of my pain for over a month. Mid conversation I politely asked to refocus on my shoulders and THAT'S when the magic happened. She worked them bad boys like a scorned ex gf. I'm hurting today, but I feel so much better. Granted, not ALL my pain is gone, but I feel much more comfortable going through my day today. I will gladly return! Thank you for a great first time experience.

Traditional Thai massage, as it is practiced at Metta Traditional Thai Massage, is a dynamic healing art utilizing ancient techniques. The therapist applies gentle deep pressure along the body's ten sen lines (energy lines) to stimulate the body's energy to bring balance and health. In short, traditional Thai massage works along these meridians using a combination of yoga stretches, reflexology, acupressure, adjustments, and internal organ massage making traditional Thai massage one of the most energizing and healing forms of massage you will ever experience.


Burynski came home and saw how quickly she could help clients with chronic problems. As she began to integrate Thai massage stretches into her table massage, her clients would speak up: “That feels amazing,” they would say. Eventually, Burynski returned to Thailand for further instruction, and then went on to become an instructor, opening her own Thai massage school, Living Sabai, in Asheville.
I'm no newbie when it comes to receiving massage therapy. I periodically indulge myself to a 60-minute session when I travel for work (I'm way too busy at home to do this!) Having had scoliosis since a child and receiving chiropractic for almost 30 years, I find that a good massage therapist complements my chiropractic care. Of all the massage therapists I've seen for the past ten years, Thai Massage Therapy is head and shoulders above the rest! For the first time, I received help for my sciatic issues, as well as pressure point treatment, lymphatic massage, and helpful stretching. Quite painful at various points, my therapist nevertheless knew exactly how to focus on on the most problematic areas. It's the kind of discomfort I know is productive and healing - for greater flexibility, pressure point release, muscle relaxation, resulting in improved function of my joints and systems. Go see them! I can't highly recommend them enough!!!

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I was inflammed and my back was spasms in pain so much I couldn't think or see straight. I knew i needed to find a place to get a massage on the way home and I read the reviews. I am so happy i went in!! Walk in are Welcome thank goodness!! I was taken to a room right away.  I got the combination massage as i had never had a Thai massage before. It was perfect. The pressure was great. Very Clean place. Very nice staff. Combo massage was $70 for an hour!! Awesome prices. I tipped $30. They also do couple massage and body scrub or a combination of both. Hot stones included with the hour.

There are many types of massage therapy, from classics like Swedish and deep tissue to more exotic styles like shiatsu. Whether you'd like to branch out a bit or have a health condition or injury, choosing a style of massage can be confusing if you're not quite sure what it involves. Here is a list of the most popular types of massage (including some that may be new to you).
Another amazing experience at my hands down favorite place. Drove an hour to get here and it was EVERYTHING I expected. Booked 90 minutes and enjoyed every second. I got walked on, cupped, every kink in my body was worked on and it was amazing. Word of advice, if you want something - ASK FOR IT. Yes, people don't speak English perfectly. Yes, people have different cultural quirks that may seem rude to us. However, I have learned to walk in and literally say exactly what I want. I walked in and told Summer: I want you to walk on me, use your knees, feet, etc. I want cupping, and I want you to not hold back at all. My headache, back tension, knots, and all my stress...GONE! I went home and slept like a baby. 100% satisfaction and an amazing , fantastic place!
I have been coming here for the past 5 years But I have also tried many other places here on the island nothing compares. Nidnoi is my therapist she is the best when it comes to a deep massage for sports pains. They provide great customer service and the establishment is very clean and well kept. Showers are available if you are coming from a workout or if you are needing to go to work afterwards. Unlike most places I've been to on the island, a 20 minute heads up will reserve you a guaranteed spot on the massage bed. Other places on island I have called, one would have to make an appointment 3 or 4 hours in advance or even have the massage given next day. This is due to a lot of staff, other places have 1 or 2 people only on stand by. Convenience for me is very critical because of my busy schedule and this place is the best I've been to. I have never had a problem parking. Upon entry to the Century Tower ask the guard for a pass for Siam Thai Massage. Parking is always available.
At our advanced day spa facility, we perform various styles of therapeutic massage, including traditional Thai, Lomi Lomi, shiatsu, Swedish, deep tissue, and stone massage techniques. These different modalities have been developed over the ages, and by different cultures, to address the ills that routinely affect the human body, but all are practiced with the ultimate aim of healing ourselves on a physical, psychological, and even spiritual level. Each unique style of massage has its distinct benefits and produces targeted effects to help treat specific complaints and conditions. Some of the most sought-after benefits of massage therapy are relief from tension headaches and musculoskeletal or neurological pain, as well as reduced heart rate, blood pressure, stress levels, anxiety, and depression...
The most widely recognized and commonly used category of massage is the Swedish massage. The Swedish massage techniques vary from light to vigorous.[62] Swedish massage uses five styles of strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber or with the fibers) and vibration/shaking.[63] Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks.[64] The development of Swedish massage is often inaccurately credited to Per Henrik Ling, though the Dutch practitioner Johann Georg Mezger applied the French terms to name the basic strokes.[65] The term "Swedish" massage is actually only recognized in English and Dutch speaking countries, and in Hungary. Elsewhere the style is referred to as "classic massage".

Sciatic nerve pain is experienced by many women in late pregnancy as the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back. The pressure of the uterus spreads tension to the muscles of the upper and lower legs, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves. Massage therapy addresses the inflamed nerves by helping to release the tension on nearby muscles. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage. Other potential benefits of prenatal massage include: reducing back pain, joint pain, muscle tension, headaches, stress, anxiety and promoting blood circulation by improving oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles.

Massage is based on pressure points along ten key energy lines of the body, which power all physical, mental and emotional processes. If there is an energy imbalance, the body's harmony is disrupted, causing pain and disease. Massaging along these key energy lines can break energy blockage, stimulate the circulation and restore general well-being. In this form of massage, the recipient is fully-clothed, in a loose-fitting top and pants. Massage oil is not used.

Because of its emphasis on body work, joint release, and deep breathing, Thai massage is often considered comparable to yoga. Modern yoga practice often includes traditional elements intrinsic in Eastern religion, including spiritual philosophy, postures designed to keep the body fit, and varying facets of meditation. These elements are sometimes adapted to meet the needs of non-religious practitioners, who may be attracted to yoga by its utility as a relaxation technique or as a way to keep in good shape.

Typically, Thai massage is more rigorous than other forms, which also makes it more energizing. It is also referred to as Thai yoga massage because the massage therapist may use his or her arms, knees, and feet in addition to hands in order to manipulate the muscles through yoga-like movements. Some massage therapists may also use acupressure during sessions.

This is an awesome massage place. After a long road trip ended up in this massage center. First off all the staff are really friendly and super look and very knowledgeable about therapy. The lemon grass tea is awesome at the end. The massage is really a great relief on overall and very nice technique in handling nerves. Had different levels of pressure with different techniques in Thai massage. Over all it's a great massage and great experience in a wonderful panama trip.

Expect a painless and soothing massage experience. These types of massages are excellent for clearing your head and re-centring yourself. Reach higher levels of mindfulness and press the reset button on your body, mind, and spirit. You will leave this massage feeling perfectly rested and relaxed. Traditional relaxation massage is recommended for people who are new to massage therapy.
Excellent massage every time. Metta offers one of the best massage experiences I've had. Based on traditional Tai techniques therapists apply their body weight, on the pressure points, releasing the tension, opening up the muscles and reaching deeper tissues than in classical styles even with the stronger therapists. After the session you feel renovated for several days. Even my vision improves for an hour or so after the session.
Our work is not an easy one but rewarding if we succeed in making our clients not just much better but decisively more happier. We pay attention to our clients if they let us do our craft, as you did, then we get these results if we do what we do best and that is our ancient ways to do the Tui-Na massage as it should be applied, but so many do not do.
The use of seven essential oils placed along the spine and massaged into the body with featherlight movements. Raindrop has helped bring relief to chronic pain sufferers. It’s called “Raindrop” therapy due to the feeling of essential oils gently dripping along your back. The specific blend of essential oils is intended to relax sore or achy muscles, reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation and immune functions, and cleanse the body’s systems. A specific blend of oils is utilized in raindrop therapy, so speak to your therapist about any sensitivities you might have.
March Madness indeed. March was a busy month that contained flu's, cold weather, and extra cuddles but March is Birthday month for Mary so that means, as we locals would say, "go big or go home". We enjoy spa/massage experiences wherever it may be or what is offered; therefore, it was only right to treat her self - with a massage. Usually, it means I get to tag along for the experience; her birthday is a joy for all. Yay! Through the joys of social media, we noticed a few of our friends visiting a place named Siam Thai Massage & Spa, on a regular basis. It was our first time visiting but we called, booked a couples package and scheduled right away - As far as timing and flexibility, we were running a solid thirty minutes behind our appointment time but the staff at Siam Thai were gracious enough to start later with no interruptions to other customers. Parking was a bit complicated but only because it was our first time there and Hawaii traffic is no cake walk. The views, however, offer a 180-degree view from 26 floors up, overlooking most of Honolulu. The building is the tallest one with blue reflective glass, across a fun gaming place and, more prominently, the convention center. The mood was set romanticly for Mary's birthday. The spa room is decorated with heart petals on the bed. You can actually call ahead of time for any occasion and they will accommodate the occasion by decorating the room for you (extra charge). With the room decorated and the view of the city, it's a great combination! The awe-inspiring view as the sun cascaded down downtown Honolulu put our mind at ease immediately. We opted for the Siam Thai Experience (for two) which is $120 for 60 minutes. Being that it was Mary's birthday, we got an extra half hour. As for the magical masseuse massages, they were beyond words but here's our best interpretation: *engphhh, *crackkk, *aghhh. Realistically, it was a combination yoga poses, stretches and indubitably, a full body massage; so with that, let the mind run wild. Tip: keep underwear on. After the treatment, we were back to the lobby and surprised us with ice cream for Mary's birthday! Along with hot ginger green tea. We don't guarantee everyone will get ice cream, but hot tea will is served to everyone after the massage! Siam Thai is one of the most affordable and bang for its buck, couples massages we've had in Hawaii! For a romantic date or recovery day after a long work week, Siam Thai Massage & Spa is a top choice. View some other packages they offer on their website!
In response to the business owner, I mentioned this on my call to her but there was no other strenuous or unusual movement of my neck during this period.  I've also had to visit a chiropractor three times since coming back to the US due to the extreme pain, and he also affirmed that bad technique during the massage must be the reason (based on my alignment).  Very poor experience, and I really wish Erawan would rethink their refund policy for situations like these, as this has become a very expensive massage due to the additional chiropractor expenses accrued.

Half-Locust Variation: Lifting the client’s knee and rocking back, press her heel toward her buttocks. It is important to use a rocking motion and not muscular strength. This stretches the iliopsoas and quadriceps and provides spinal extension and compression, opening up the lumbar area. It relieves lower back pain and helps correct anterior pelvic tilt.
Our first Thai Massage and it was wonderful. I booked the 90 minute Royal Couples Massage package and thanks to some protest in the City, we were 5 minutes late. So because of that, we had to cut our massage time early but the lady in the front was nice enough to discount us for the inconvenience. We got to use the steam room afterwards too, which was very clean and spacious for showering/getting ready after. The masseuses were both ladies but we didn't catch their names. They were very professional and damn, do they know how to get those knots out! If I worked or lived out in SF, I'd be here more often, especially for that Office Syndrome Massage I saw listed.

A good massage is truly a treat and offers many health benefits, but as you've noted, massage places tend to offer lots of options on their services menus. In fact, there are over 200 different massage techniques and types, all treating different needs and providing various benefits. Let's break it down. Here are nine of the most popular types of massages and when you might want to choose them.

I went in for a 30 min massage before boarding my Vegas flight for vacation. Although 30 min is much too short, I still think it was the equivalent of an hour massage anywhere else. I spent my entire vacation pain free and when I asked my daughter to give me a neck massage a week later, she said she couldn't locate any superficial knots, which was a first! I highly recommend this place. I told Summer exactly where to put pressure and she obliged. She's very strong and talented. My back was a mess, and it hurt like hell, but the good kind of pain where I felt the knots melting away. Also I was sore for a few days, but honestly I would take soreness any day over a stiff and knotted back. Fyi-The spa certificates they sell at Costco are ineffective, you end up paying the same amount. All in all amazing experience, do the 1 hour massage minimum - you won't be sorry!

I really wish I could give this place 5 stars. I really do. I came in with high expectations when I booked a reservation for both of us on a Monday after work. This is a beautiful space, and it feels like we've been transported to a calm, zen space that you would have never expected in the busy and dingy streets of the Civic Center area of San Francisco.

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest and simplest techniques to optimizing health and enhancing weight loss. It is a hands-on approach to wellbeing that acts on the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Regular massage treatments allow the body to remove toxins more effectively and help relieve post-exercise pain and recovery time. Treatments also enhance muscle flexibility, can improve workout performance and prevent injuries. By increasing your body temperature, massage therapy can increase your Basal Metabolic Rate: the rate at which your body burns calories. Multiple studies have found that regular massage therapy is effective for relieving pain, reducing stress levels and preventing and treating both acute and chronic muscular injuries. Studies have also concluded that massage therapy is an excellent supportive treatment for healthy weight loss and regular treatments can also reduce cellulite, body circumference and help tone muscles.
Massage in China is an extremely popular therapy, the city of Shanghai alone playing host to over 1500 foot massage centers while there are more than 3000 in Shenzhen. It is one of the biggest service industries in China with workers in Shanghai numbering in the tens of thousands.[17] The average rate of pay for a worker in the massage industry in China is over 10000 yuan per month, making it among the highest paid jobs in China’s service sector.[18] China’s massage parlors are frequently linked to the sex industry and the government has taken a number of measures in recent times to curb prostitution and the spread of disease. In a nationwide crackdown known as the yellow sweep ("Yellow" in Mandarin Chinese refers to sexual activities or pornographic content), limitations on the design and operation of massage parlors have been placed, going so far as requiring identification from customers who visit massage establishments late at night and logging their visits with the local police.

Proprioceptive studies are much more abundant than massage and proprioception combined, yet researchers are still trying to pinpoint the exact mechanisms and pathways involved to get a fuller understanding.[93] Proprioception may be very helpful in rehabilitation, though this is a fairly unknown characteristic of proprioception, and "current exercises aimed at 'improving proprioception' have not been demonstrated to achieve that goal".[94] Up until this point, very little has been studied looking into the effects of massage on proprioception. Some researchers believe "documenting what happens under the skin, bioelectrically and biochemically, will be enabled by newer, non-invasive technology such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and continuous plasma sampling".[92]
