In South Africa, massage is regulated, but enforcement is poor. The minimum legal requirement to be able to practice as a professional massage therapist is a 2-year diploma in Therapeutic Massage and registration with The Allied Health Professions Council of SA (AHPCSA). The 2 year qualification includes 240 credits, about 80 case studies, and about 100 hours community service.
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.
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.

Iyara Traditional Thai Massage introduces a type of massage in Thai style that involves stretching and deep body massage. This form of bodywork is usually performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used in this Thai massage. It is known in Thailand as "Nuat Phaen Boran" (นวดแผนโบราณ), literally, the ancient-manner massage. 

I've been here 3 times, as a former professional massage therapist, I have to say that these people do things far beyond what I was capable of and it's AMAZING! I've recommended it to all of my friends. My massage therapist PAULA have amazing skill and technique and are perfect for anyone like me who's worried about a lack of pressure. Nelly is wonderful if you just want a nice relaxing massage after a hard day. My preference is for PAULA who work very deep into tissue and do a lot of full body stretches (it's Thai massage after all!) This is better than anything you'd get at MassageEnvy. Spas around the Houston area which provide quality Thai Massage are incredibly rare. 

After I told my 1sf therapist as a walk in that I had lots of lower back and hip pain she started treament by after 5 min she had a more important client walk in so I was pushed off to someone who never heard why I was there.  After 10-15 min of a kitty cat pawing treatment I was suppose to be happpy. I asked to pay more For  a deep  tissue treatment but she said she didn't understand the English I was speaking. Of chourse 2 min after that she knew "do u pay cash" and "how much tip" "how much tip?'

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. 

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!

Because Thai massage is more rigorous than other forms of massage, it is more invigorating. The benefit of this is that you will walk away from your massage session feeling more energized. This is also a side-effect of relieving stress and increased circulation, but increased energy can also help you in other areas of your life, such as getting through slow afternoons at work.


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.
After losing two days from airfare and layovers of 2 week vacation then exploring Tokyo for approx 72 hours non-stop, I felt exhausted and stressed all over the place and was in dire need of a thoroughly massage. The subway system in Tokyo is very convenient so distance was not too much of a factor. I found Erawan Thai massage on yelp then based my final decision to come here from everyone's reviews of a it being a quality place and offer deep / hard massages. I received a warm and friendly greeting at the entrance. The decor and smells was very relaxing and a sight to remind of a traditional Thai massage spot. I was lucky to get a same-day Thai massage because this place accepts appointments only. The place is moderately sized and I feel the clientele defaults to a 60 min which was what I took and was well worth it. I wish I took the 90 minute massage given the 60 alone took all the pain and stress away but I felt I haven't done enough damage vacationing all over Japan yet to warrant a 90. Per my appt request I requested a hard massage, this expectation was met plus she focused on my problem areas when she asked me before we started. I highly recommend especially if you're looking to get a quality massage to get the kinks away from a long flight, jet lag, or traveling. Please note it was somewhat difficult to find as it's entrance is tucked further into a building besides the video game store. When facing the video game store its to your right up the elevator to the 4th floor. It's helpful to look into their website because they offer various discounts!
Massage therapists who have received specialized training and are certified in prenatal massage know how to position and support the woman's body during the massage, modify techniques, and avoid certain areas and techniques during pregnancy. Most will have a special table that allows the woman to rest comfortably and safely during the massage. Ideally, you should seek out a practitioner who is experienced and licensed in prenatal massage.

Part of the 90 minute massage also involved stretching certain muscles. At the end of the 90 minutes, even though I was a little bit sore from the deep tissue massage, I felt a lot better. When the massage was over, I got dressed, went to the front counter, and paid as well as left a tip. While I used the Lyft app on my phone to get ride to get back to the Strip, I was offered a loyalty card. The only thing about the loyalty card is that it was created/made for 60 minute massages and not 90 minute massages since a 90 minute massage only gets 1 stamp on the card.
4. Make sounds. The intensity of a Vietnamese massage is partly due to the various groans and shouts that the masseuse makes while carrying out the techniques. There’s more power in a movement when you exhale and let your voice loose. When you make contact with the skin, release a grunt or a roar that signifies the effort you’re putting into the act. Each movement should be accompanied by its own sound. The combination of skin pounding and slapping with your vocal exhalations is what makes the experience exciting for your partner.
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.
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.
A Thai massage is an ancient form of healing that combines the concepts of yoga and energetic Chinese practices. About 2,500 years ago, Buddhism spread from India to Thailand. Along with this increasingly popular spiritual practice came a form of healing that had taken root in the community of Buddhists. When these new ideas reached the shores of Thailand, they mixed with the Chinese concept of the energetic body that was already being practiced.

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!

Unlike Western massage styles, the Thai version focuses on circulation and pressure points, promoting internal health as well as muscular flexibility. Treatment often begins with the feet and gradually moves upwards towards the head. The body is gently arranged into four positions (face-down, face-up, side, and sitting position), which enables the masseur to perform a variety of exercises that would be otherwise unworkable.

It's been about a week since I went. I was definitely pleased with my massage. I have gone to a place in mililani but My husbands client recommended I go here so I said "hey why not it's another massage therapist recommending me go there" so I did. It was the best he ever. I dozed off here and there. Wasn't to rough on me. I'm super sensitive to people rubbing my knots. They usually are painful but not here. I'll definitely be going back in a few weeks. The staff was super nice. I enjoyed my ginger honey tea after my massage as well. Much mahalos ladies.

Eric Spivack, who is a Thai massage practitioner and instructor based in Seattle, Washington, found this out first hand. Plagued with repetitive neck, shoulder and hand injuries, Spivack considered giving up his practice—and then he attended a Thai massage demonstration. “It was the first time I ever saw a therapist use feet,” he says. He has now been to Thailand 10 times, studying under nearly two dozen different teachers, and runs his own Thai massage school, Soaring Crane Massage & Acupuncture in Seattle.

We are very faithful to the Thai massage tradition and therefore we try to evoke past eras through touch. After all, muscle manipulation is one of the most effective ancient techniques that has lasted until our times. Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today, especially because the feeling of pain can get worse and prevention is better than cure.
I didn't have the best Thai massage of my life, but their couples massage for one hour is not a bad deal for $120. That's still a bit less than some other places like the Luxury Thai Spa. I actually thought the bed inside the room was nice. However, when you initially walk in, it doesn't give off the nicest impression. I'm not too picky as long as the sheets look clean and changed. The massage itself was a 3/5 for me. I got my back stepped on, but the lady who gave me the massage wasn't too accurate. I definitely think it's worth trying out several other masseuses, so I will hope for better next time around.

     During the massage, my masseuse was pretty professional, she used the right amount of pressure and always asked me If I ok. She recommended walking on my body gently, she has a lot of experience. After my massage my body felt very soft and relaxed.  I asked her name which Tanya, I read a lot of good reviews from Tanya. I finally know why Tanya so popular unite I tried her massage!!
An integral part of traditional Thai medicine is the use of herbs during a Thai Massage. Thai people apply this belief and benefit Thai herbal treatments as tools for relaxation and disease prevention. Our Traditional Thai Herb Ball contains a blend of many Thai herbs, whose essential oils are transferred to the skin when applied to the body with heat and pressure, thus reducing muscular tension and increasing blood circulation, as well as, improving skin appearance.
After a quick foot soak and brush we were taken to our private room with 2 beds and asked to get ready. What an experience! For someone who's used to having the odd massage at a beauty salon or spa, Ive never really seen what the deal was, they never did anything for me and I just felt oily after. What a difference! This is the best Ive felt in a long time! Such a great massage, as I was feeling a bit tight, I asked not for a full body massage, but a focus on a back, neck and shoulders. Ive never felt pain like it, or heard as many clicks or crunches buy oh my was it worth it!

Burmese massage is a full body massage technique that starts from head to toes, drawing on acupuncture, reflexology, and kneading. Signature massage strokes include acupressure using the elbows, quick gentle knocking of acupressure points, and slow kneading of tight muscles. The massage is aimed to improve blood circulation and quality of sleep, while at the same time help to promote better skin quality.

Thai massage isn’t nicknamed “yoga for lazy people” for nothing. Clients such as Pete who are into performance don’t necessarily take adequate time for stretching compared to how hard they push their bodies. Roger still isn’t totally comfortable with taking his clothes off and he likes that some of the Thai stretches he can do at home in between treatments.
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.
First time at this spa for me, after reading reviews I realized that language might be a problem. I went in to get a deep tissue massage and had problems with arthritis in my shoulder, summer worked extra on my shoulder and the massage was wonderful I read cupping was included in the massage and it was not , but that would have taken time from my massage so no problem.  Not what I consider a spa but a great massage, very authentic Chinese massage

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.

Prior to gaining momentum in the U.S. as a popular modality, Thai massage schools in Thailand taught 60-hour certification courses, and teacher training was available for an additional 60 to 70 hours. Now, certification can be had around the world from the traditional 60 hours up to 500 hours, leaving massage therapists to make their own choices as to what is sufficient training.
I'm not an expert in massages, but I can tell you the 60 minute deep tissue massage did wonders for my back and leg muscles and the whole experience was very relaxing. A nice break from the stress of traveling. Setting up the appointment through Yelp was very easy to do. They will send you directions because it is not easy to find from street level (business is on the fourth floor). The elevator on the left only goes up one floor. If you take the Tokyo subway to Roppongi station as I did and go up any random exit, it may be hard to find. Recommend following the directions they provide and exit the station using the closest exit.
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.

Massages are like work outs. Stay hydrated.

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.
     During the massage, my masseuse was pretty professional, she used the right amount of pressure and always asked me If I ok.

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".

These ladies are very talented! They do the most amazing deep tissue, detox and stretching massage! I've been now about 5 times and they have some amazing skills. Hint: have them walk on your back, it's the real deal.  Very professional and always a relaxing treat when the tension knots are really deep and a regular massage just won't do. Come see these ladies! They won't disappoint.


Have you ever had a Thai massage? Well you should get one if you haven't. Seriously, they get down to the very DEEP part of your problems. It's so peaceful and relaxing yet tough on your body.

Not sure how to describe it but they stretch you at the end and it is a legit massage place. Tip: don't go if you're sore! Cus they really work you! I'll be back!

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]

Wat Pho, the center of Thai medicine and massage for centuries, opened the Wat Pho Thai Traditional Medical and Massage School in 1955 on the temple grounds, the first such school approved by the Thai Ministry of Education. Wat Pho offers four basic courses of Thai medicine: Thai massage, Thai midwife-nurse, Thai pharmacy, and Thai medical practice.[7]
I absolutely loved this place. The service was amazing you get greeted with a cup of warm tea. The ambient atmosphere was absolutely astonishing and very peaceful. I actually had a really bad shoulder pain that was really painful for s number of days and so I found this place going in and expecting to come out a little better, but I felt my body and even my mood lift with how happy I was that my shoulder wasn't as bad. The massage room itself was a small bamboo made room with beautiful decorations and lighting and really nice instrumental music in the background. I had the 90 minute oil massage and chose lavender for oil (you can choose from 5 options!). Pricing is not bad whatsoever because they give you everything that you are looking for in a massaging place. 

As a massage student interested in Thai Massage, I recently started reading about a half dozen different Thai Massage books. While I've found something of value in each, this one is by far the most comprehensive. For instance, one of my favorite parts of Thai Massage is the herbal compresses, and it looks like only one other book even mentions them at all. This book has a short chapter on them and mentions a few popular herb combinations. It also mentions that Thai Massage is (in Thailand) normally followed by an herbal sauna and mentions some of the methods used to provide that. The organization of the book is not encyclopedic but is the same general structure that the other books use (introduction, techniques, more discussion).

Very good! From the name, you must know that this is a traditional Chinese / Asian style massage. If you've never had that before, you should know that it is very different from normal massages you get in America. They use their elbows and knees to dig deep into your muscles. If you are up for it, they will also walk on your back. It feels great. There are several Asian women that work here, and they are very tiny, probably less than 100 pounds. So, it doesn't really hurt when they walk on your back. They are very good. I highly recommend going.
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. I had also tried the water massage beds offered in some malls (including the Showcase Mall) and although those water massage beds were relaxing, I preferred a more firm, deep tissue type massage to try to get rid of the knots that I was sure were building up in my shoulders & upper back. As luck would have it, there was a discussion forum about firm, deep tissue massages in the Las Vegas Talk forum. I checked out the prices and the review and called to make an appointment. Even factoring the Lyft ride to/from the place, I calculated the price to be less than how much it would cost me to get a similar type massage at the place I was staying at or any Strip hotel spa. I arrived early and was told that I should come back in ~30 minutes. Since the temperature was cold outside, I asked if I could stay inside and there wasn't an issue. I was told that I could lay on the bed while I waited but I decided I would just sit there. I used the Yelp app on my phone to check in and there was a discount. I spoke with the person behind the counter about the discount and I was informed that because I wanted a 90 minute massage and the 90 minute massage was already discounted, it would not apply. When the person was ready I was escorted to the room. Inside the room there were 2 massage beds. I was asked how long I wanted and I mentioned that I wanted 90 minutes. I was then asked to undress and go underneath the towel. I was told that this place also specializes in back walking so I requested a few minutes of that. Above the massage tables are 2 bars so the massage therapist can hold on as to not apply all her weight on the customer. I thought that I could handle firm massages but Kim gave me one of the firmest, deep tissue massages that I've ever experienced. The oil that she used had a burning and soothing feeling to it. Part of the 90 minute massage also involved stretching certain muscles. At the end of the 90 minutes, even though I was a little bit sore from the deep tissue massage, I felt a lot better. When the massage was over, I got dressed, went to the front counter, and paid as well as left a tip. While I used the Lyft app on my phone to get ride to get back to the Strip, I was offered a loyalty card. The only thing about the loyalty card is that it was created/made for 60 minute massages and not 90 minute massages since a 90 minute massage only gets 1 stamp on the card. If you like firm (deep tissue) massages, this is the place to go.

My wife and I came to Las Vegas for our honeymoon. After party's for several days, I invited the spouse to a massage. I found this place on Yep after discovering the (exorbitant) prices at the Aria, where we stayed. The ladies at this spa took us in right away. We were walk ins. My wife got a combination massage. I got a deep rub massage. I told the masseuse my problem areas. She walked on my back and legs after my approval. She was very thorough and efficient. I was like melting butter afterwards. Why not 5 stars? Although my wife enjoyed the massage, she felt that it was too hard at times. She would have preferred a licensed massage therapist. As for me, I kinda like it rough. I'd go back here next time we're im town.

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.
Siam's location is in mid-Market; not the best location and parking can be a challenging (best to use Uber or Lyft).  But inside the environment is very serene with wood interior and the sound of water flowing.   They have a large number of masseuses here at any given time- I believe ~8 so they often have availability, provided you schedule.  Cost is $90 for a 1 hour swedish oil massage, and $5 discount if you pay by cash.  Some of the masseuses have their own unique hours; for example Judy often starts at 2 PM on.  You can also request a massage table if you prefer (which is elevated and I find allows for better breathing), versus the ground mat that is common in thai massage.  Siam also has a steam room which is extra and showers.  
In fact, the history of Thai massage is more complex than this legend of a single founder would suggest. Thai massage, like Thai traditional medicine (TTM) more generally, is a combination of influences from Indian, Chinese, Southeast Asian cultural spheres, and traditions of medicine, and the art as it is practiced today is likely to be the product of a 19th-century synthesis of various healing traditions from all over the kingdom.[6] Even today, there is considerable variation from region to region across Thailand, and no single routine or theoretical framework that is universally accepted among healers.
