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.

The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Thai massage also utilizes energy work, which, according to ancient Asian culture, treats the subtle energetic field within the body. It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client's health. 
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.

A "vacation" in Tokyo certainly requires a lot of walking. After logging 10+ miles a few days in a row, our bodies were in need of a little R&R. There are certainly a lot of options for massages in Japan, but Erawan definitely appeals to tourists. It was SO easy to request an appointment via Yelp. They got back to me within a hour and we had appointments setup later that day. We went with a 90 minute Thai couples massage with oil of which you get to pick the scent for. We chose lavender which probably is the reason I drifted off into sleep at one point. You lay on the ground rather than a bed and the masseuse really gets to work! At the end, they also crack your back which was scary but felt great. It cost about $108 plus tip, which is pretty comparable to a massage here. We got a slight discount because it was a "couples" massage. Was it worth it? Yes! It was just what our bodies needed mid-vacay and I would definitely return.
Came here yesterday with my bachelorette party (8) ladies including myself for a massage after a day of hiking. Spoke with the owner a month before to reserve a time. The owner was very nice and accommodating and was able to fit us all in at the same time. I have to tell you my massage was the best in Hawaii. I left feeling very relax and refreshed.  The owner was very nice and friendly, I am definitely coming back here when I'm back in Hawaii. Thank you for such an amazing massage.
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]
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.

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!
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."

I wish I could give a good review. Unfortunately that is not the case. I was asked how I would like the massage and I explained explicitly that I had a lower back issue and that area was not to have pressure on it. The main focus of the massage ended up being my lower back. I asked not to go hard on that area and yet the therapist continued to put pressure in that area to the point that I was brought to tears from pain. Not one moment was enjoyed and now I am unable to get out of bed from the pain. I do not recommend this place as they do not listen to their clients. On top of that a tip was requested, Which I found to be quite upfront and inappropriate as the service was not what I wanted.


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.
In both Eastern and Western healing systems, the concept of maintaining balance or equilibrium is considered crucial to good health. 'Sen' are considered passages for energy, and correspond with blood vessels in the body. Traditional Thai healing practices suggest that when the 'Sen' become blocked, energy grows stagnant and the body loses its balance, leading to a range of ailments. Thai massage acts as an external stimulant to produce specific internal effects within the body, both freeing energy from obstruction and preserving health and harmony.
You definitely need to make an appointment. Thai massages are amazing, but if you've never had one be aware they put a lot of pressure on your back. They step on it, use elbows, anything they can to get to the problem. Yes, you will be sore the next day, and maybe the day after. But I assure you I only need to do this once a month as a necessary "mom massage." Being of Thai descent I can tell you they do an amazing job and worth every penny.

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. All staff is very friendly and professional. They offer a special hot tea after the session and adjust each session to your particular pain points. I'd like to thank Tao and O specifically for their excellent work.
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.
Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system that combines broad and targeted acupressure, stimulation and manipulation of energy lines called sen, and assisted yoga postures. Treatment effects are enhanced when the patient is fully relaxed and breathing deeply. This traditional healing practice, called nuad or nuad boran in the Thai language, stands in sharp contrast to western massage therapies.
My husband and I come here frequently. He has sciatic, psoas pain and I have all sorts of pain (tmj, neck, back, metatarsalgia, de quervain, etc lol). He discovered this thru yelp, after trying out numerous massage services in the bay area & weve almost given up. We never considered going to a Chiro either. Thai massage is hard massage, we just couldn't get anywhere else. We tried many other massage places but we always come back here. Unlike other massage places, any staff you get here will give you the same effect, and no one is not good enough or no single staff stands out cause any of them does. There's no one massager that you need to wait for to get an appointment. We call to schedule an appt but we never request for anyone and still get the same results. Their massage is like assisted yoga, take a pause here and imagine that...I mean, dont drink anything with milk or whipped cream, if youre even slightly lactose intolerant...before the sesh...if u get what i mean. Their restroom is nice too. The trick is to not resist but to trust, give in and relax your body while they're doing their thing. We call this our "therapy". We do feel like newborns every after session, ready to go back to our desk jobs, fresh. Sometimes, after the massage, we eat at the next door Vietnamese restaurant. It feels like a mini quick vacation.
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!

He has been teaching massage in the U.S., Canada, Costa Rica and Mexico for more than 20 years.

Thai massage therapy requires extensive training, and the preeminent place for it is Wat Po in Bangkok. The school offers three certification levels, with the third one alone requiring 800 hours. (Graduates are issued a certificate from the Thailand Ministry of Public Health.) There are numerous programs around the world with solid training as well, but many die-hard therapists make the pilgrimage to Thailand to acquire at least some authentic knowledge base.
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]
Being from LA, I was in Chicago for the first time and was exhausted exploring the city over the weekend for straight 3 days. Started looking for a authentic place for a massage and came across Chinese Traditional Massage on google/yelp and checked out the websote which was authentic and also read some great reviews on yelp. I prefer the chinese massage over traditional massages as its reaches your energy body and is intense not superficial. Read some great yelp reviews mentioning massage therapists name as Summer. I asked for a 1 hour Tui Na level2 massage from Summer. It was the best massage i have had in my life. I have had massages across LA for several years now. This was the most intense precise and detailed massage i have ever had. The energy in her hands is amazing. She has great knowledge of the body and how to relieve stress from each area of the body. I cannot describe it in words, you have to experience it for yourself. I would love to get a massage from Summer again. Its total value for the price. She gives more than 100% to ensure you have the best massage. Highly recommended!!
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.

We offer the finest treatments at reasonable prices. Our signature treatment, an Authentic Thai massage, has been a favorite among our clientele. Other popular services include facials, deep tissue massages, Swedish massages, and waxing treatments. You will be in good hands at our spa. Our professional and friendly staff provide the best possible services in a calm and pleasant atmosphere.

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.

Judy is my favorite masseuse. She is very good at calibrating pressure based on what you ask for. Her technique is terrific. She is also very sweet and cares about her customers. I have a few massage places walking distance from where I live but I still come here once a week. 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. One of the reasons I like Siam and Judy in particular is she learns really well what works for your body. She will find tension in my shoulder and work on it without my saying anything. Also I found some Thai massages use significant pressure as a baseline and don't always deviate from it. Here, you can get a strong or a gentle massage depending on your preference. The front-desk is friendly and helpful. My advice is schedule a day or two in advance if you want to book for Friday or Saturday as the schedule gets full quickly. There are $40 foot massages in San Francisco and I do find some of those convenient. But one difference is in how you feel after and for that reason, I often come here.

Tui na is a branch of Chinese medicine, which looks at the underlying causes of pain and illness as well as the symptoms. Because Tui na massage can be very relaxing, it is particularly useful to relieve anxiety and stress, promote relaxation and aid sleep. Like other forms of massage, it can be used preventatively, to encourage the movement of Qi (vital energy) and Blood. Tui na can be used in conjunction with the other branches of traditional Chinese medicine such as Acupuncture.

Came here on a Sunday for my first Thai massage ever! My therapist was Eva–it was quite enjoyable, not sure if it was “amazing” since it was my first one. I had the Thai-Swedish combo and I felt like they could have worked on my back more though. The ladies were very nice, and the ambience pretty relaxing, I would definitely come back for the price and location, and happy hours are weekdays $45 before 2:00 pm. Free street parking on Sunday, otherwise they have a lot in the back, but limited parking spots. Overall did the job and got the relaxation I was overdue for!
And if you wonder how Thai massage might fit into your existing practice, Spivack has some encouraging words. “I would like to remind those who are considering Thai massage that it is very easy to incorporate into a conventional massage practice,” he explains. “It doesn’t have to replace your practice. It can enhance it. You can still do table massage—and all the techniques you’ve already learned —and incorporate some Thai massage easily without having to shelve all your other knowledge. It is very adaptable."

Massage is hindered from reaching the gold standard of scientific research, which includes placebo-controlled and double blind clinical trials.[85][86] Developing a "sham" manual therapy for massage would be difficult since even light touch massage could not be assumed to be completely devoid of effects on the subject.[85] It would also be difficult to find a subject that would not notice that they were getting less of a massage, and it would be impossible to blind the therapist.[85] Massage can employ randomized controlled trials, which are published in peer reviewed medical journals.[85] This type of study could increase the credibility of the profession because it displays that purported therapeutic effects are reproducible.[86]

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 woke up with the worst neck pain and after dealing with it all day I called up Thai Spa Massage 2 and made an appointment for the same day. My Mom and sister went about a month before and loved it so I took my Dad and we headed over. For two 90 minute massages it was only $200 and we each had very spacious private rooms. They even have punch cards that you can use towards a free massage. The guy I had (I can't remember his name ) asked if I had any pain, I mentioned my neck and he worked on it for at least an hour while still working on the rest of my body. Just by feeling my neck he knew how tight it was and he really worked out the knots. By the end of the massage I was able to move my neck to the side without as much pain! I will definitely be back. 

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.

I found this place a few months ago and it has since become a favorite spa to visit. I have lived/worked in China many years and know exactly what high level, well-trained, quality Chinese bodywork is. I've had every style performed many, many times. I usually visit Lily. We are now good friends, can practice Chines/English together during our sessions and know each other well. From the very first time I came to Chinese Traditional Massage, Lily was very friendly, professional, found out about all my past surgeries and did a great appointment. I visit about once a week. I always look forward to seeing Lily and having another great visit with her. Hey laoban...Xia Yun anmo feichong, feichong hao he ta shi hen li mao. Wo juede Xia Yun hen mei li...ke yi le?

10/4/2018 We are very sorry that you had a bad massage experience. And very much thank you for the review, so… We are very sorry that you had a bad massage experience. And very much thank you for the review, so we are able to approve our spa through this issue. So we would like to ask your help a little bit, we hope you could describe about the therapist who gave you a service, either her name or feature,  also the date and time that you visited our place, and please provide your name of booking.

The first time I decided to try it, I called and made an appointment. The woman who answered the phone didn't really speak english, so when I told her that I wanted to make an appointment she kept saying "ok ok ok". I felt that she didn't understand. I showed up to the appointment the following day and the person at the front was so confused when I told her I had an appointment.
My first time trying thai massage here and I I just love it.My right arms was giving me pain probably from my work,so I decided to try this place through one my my friend's recommendation.Now the pain is gone and I felt relaxed instantly! They serve pandan leaves hot tea after the massage which is so good!will definitely going back at least once a month.
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.

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!
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. 

After our long drive from San Diego my husband and I wanted to start our vacation off right. We called and made appointments the same day we were arriving into town. We had the couples massage and it was awesome! The massage room was very clean and everything smelled nice. The ladies both did a great job. We would definitely return the next time we are here.

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.
I went for a hot stone massage, she rubbed hot stones on my back at one point briefly but they weren...’t laid on my back like a usual hot stone massage. The massage didn’t flow and I question whether she was trained professionally. I felt the massage was rushed at the end. I also question why I wasn’t asked to fill out any paperwork or if I had any injuries or conditions. I won’t be coming back. See More

Traditional Thai massage rarely uses oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being.

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.

A deriving range of massage techniques, the Chinese massage method is most closely linked to acupuncture because the meridian system guides Chinese therapists. You will find that most textbooks on Chinese massage list between 30 and 70 available techniques. These include deep, penetrating strokes and soft tissue manipulation methods. Some Chinese massage therapists will also include herbal medicine in treatment to assist with healing.

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!

Some studies are backing the benefits these massages claim to have. One study suggests that a traditional Thai massage could be used as a complementary therapy for autistic children in Thailand. Another study suggested that patients suffering from back pain associated with myofascial trigger points (the connective tissue that holds us together) should consider receiving Thai massages as an alternative primary health care treatment.
One of the biggest benefits is the relaxation that comes from it. Numerous studies have shown that those who have massages are more relaxed, and many seek out massage as a form of relaxation. This, paired with the yoga-like elements of Thai massage, which is also relaxing, ensures that Thai massage can help even the most tense person find relaxation. Along with this, Thai massage is an excellent way to relieve stress. Since stress can have long-term and serious effects on the body and mind, using Thai massage to help relieve stress will help improve overall health.
Thai massage has been practiced in America since the 1990s when Westerners began practicing it. Thai massage is more commonly found than it used to be at American spas, but you can't find it everywhere for two reasons. First, the spa needs a room with a large, padded mat in order to offer Thai massage. It's easiest if the room is always set up for Thai massage, and yet it is more of a specialty request. It just makes more economic sense to have the room set up with a table for a Swedish massage.
Thailand culture is more than about music, painting and fine foods. It arises from a complex system of mutual respect and politeness that binds people together. Massage has a long tradition as a healing therapy and has been used by many different cultures for centuries to treat and relieve a wide range of disorders. Thai massage is based on thai medicine, an ancient holistic approach to healing the body-heart-mind-spirit. Thai medicine strives to treat the underlying cause of any illness by addressing imbalances in these three essences, not just the physical body. Massage is one of the easiest ways of attaining and maintaining good health and well being. It is healing instinct, innate of all of us, to rub an aching knee, or stroke a furrowed brow. Touch is so natural that without it people become depressed and irritable. Our sense of touch is registered by our skin, the largest and most sensitive organ. Throughout history people have used the power of touch from our hands to warmth, comfort and reassure. Massage has wonderful healing powers that even today's doctors largely support. Many of our customers are doctors 

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.
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.

I had a great experience here. I have some problems with shin splints and tight muscles in my legs from playing soccer. I went here specifically because they offered a deep tissue massage which would help with that. I got there without an appointment and I was able to get an appoint in the next 10 minutes which was awesome. I was a little worried that the girls would not be able to massage my muscles strong enough, but boy was I wrong! They definitely know what they’re doing and massage just hard enough to get all the knots out, but not too hard to make it painful. The girl who massaged me also had some kind of intuition for exactly where the knots were and was able to target them really well. I think I will go here more often to help out my leg muscles.

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.
Thai #Massage is a unique type of massage therapy. This bodywork or body manipulation is usually done on the floor in a spa or parlor. It is performed with the client fully clothed and uses many yoga and massage techniques to provide deep stretching and relaxation. The therapist uses his or her body against the other person's body to stretch, relax and achieve a deep tissue massage. This demonstration is a technique called Thai Yoga Massage.
In regulated provinces massage therapists are known as Registered Massage Therapists, in Canada only four provinces regulate massage therapy:[95] British Columbia, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, and New Brunswick.[96] Regulated provinces have, since 2012, established inter-jurisdiction competency standards.[97][95] Quebec is not provincially regulated. Massage therapists may obtain a certification with one of various associations operating. There is the Professional Association of Specialized Massage Therapists of Quebec, also named Mon Réseau Plus, which represents 6,300 massage therapists (including orthotherapists, naturotherapists and others), the Quebec Federation of massage therapists (FMQ), and the Association québécoise des thérapeutes naturels; however, none of these are regulated by provincial law.
Thai massage originated in India and is based on ayurveda( incorporates yoga, meditation and herbal remedies) and yoga. The technique combines massage with yoga-like positions during the course of the massage; the northern style emphasizes stretching while the southern style emphasizes acupressure. Book an appointment at Mantra Wellness Centre to receive the most tranquil and soothing Thai massage in Calgary.

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.

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
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.

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]

In Mexico massage therapists, called "sobadores", combine massage using oil or lotion[101] with a form of acupuncture and faith.[102] Sobadores are used to relieve digestive system problems as well as knee and back pain.[101][102] Many of these therapists work out of the back of a truck, with just a curtain for privacy.[102] By learning additional holistic healer's skills in addition to massage, the practitioner may become a curandero.[103] 

In the recent report on Thai traditional massage, Yoopat et al. reported their observation on three varieties of Thai traditional massage and concluded that “some forearm fatigue was decreased significantly among the three massage techniques.”[1] In fact, Thai traditional massage is a widely used massage technique in Thailand and is presently accepted by the Thai Ministry of Public Health. The technique can be described to be a kind of acupressure massage. Kumnerddee noted that Thai traditional massage was effective in bringing about muscle relaxation but that the technique was inferior to the worldwide well-known Chinese acupuncture.[2]
As an instructor, Burynski saw how the work benefited the students themselves, many of whom were massage therapists. “I realized that Thai massage could hold a key to career longevity for therapists,” she says. “When you are delivering downward pressure in a regular massage, you use your wrists, or biceps, for example, or other small muscles we can overuse.”
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.
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.
In India, massage therapy is licensed by The Department of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (India) in March 1995. Massage therapy is based on Ayurveda, the ancient medicinal system that evolved around 600 BC. In ayurveda, massage is part of a set of holistic medicinal practices, contrary to the independent massage system popular in some other systems. In Siddha, Tamil traditional medicine from south India, massage is termed as "Thokkanam" and is classified in to nine types, each for specific variety of disease.

This was just so weird. I got there and they were able to see me immediately. I let them know I am 9 months pregnant and they said no problem, they do prenatal massage. I get in and the therapist was HORRIBLE! She spent 40+ minutes rubbing the middle of my back. That's it. I told her my neck and shoulders and especially my feet hurt and she wouldn't move from the same spot. She finally said we were done and I was shocked! She never rubbed my hands, lower back, neck, or my feet! I mean come on, who doesn't rub a pregnant persons feet? I even checked at the end to see if my feet were gross or something but no, took a shower right before I got there. It was just so strange, I ended up coming home in tears and rubbing myself which would have cost less than the $75 I paid them for absolutely nothing. 

This is possibly the best massage I have had. They are very welcoming and addressed all of my sore and tight muscles. It was extremely relaxing. It is very clean and professional. I will visit here when I'm in the area for sure. They are able to accept appointments to accommodate your schedule. They have a parking lot and it's very close to Woodfield mall.

An ancient Chinese massage and has been in use for more than 3,000 years. The theory is that the sensory nerves of the body's inner organs are spread throughout the body and are connected to the most superficial layer of the body,All sensory nerves are rooted primarily at the bottom of the foot. Massaging and pressing specific points on the soles of the feet associated with particular organs produces a therapeutic effect in corresponding parts of the body, helps stimulate activities of the inner organs and improves blood and lymph circulation.Reflexology using wood stick aided by massage cream and oil.
Shiatsu massage therapy relies on the use the fingers, thumbs and palm to apply pressure to various areas of the body’s surface to help heal common ailments and conditions, and correct imbalances in the body. Pressure applied to points on the body promotes energy flow and corrects disharmonies throughout the patient's body. In addition to being a deeply relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps relieve stress, treat pain and illness, and contributes to a patient's overall health and wellbeing.

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!

A hot stone massage uses water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. Stones coated in oil can also be used by the therapist delivering various massaging strokes. The hot stones used are commonly Basalt stones (or lava rocks) which over time have become extremely polished and smooth. As the stones are placed along the recipient’s back, they help to retain heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles, releasing tension.

At Siam Thai Massage, traditional techniques provide sore patients with full-body relief. During massages, therapists gradually shift clients between yoga-like positions and apply gentle, rhythmic pressure and slow stretches to help soothe stiffness and improve flexibility. Thai reflexology treatments focus on the feet to stimulate other parts of the body, and deep-tissue massages work out tough, painful knots.


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.
Massage used in the medical field includes decongestive therapy used for lymphedema[10] which can be used in conjunction with the treatment of breast cancer. Light massage is also used in pain management and palliative care. Carotid sinus massage is used to diagnose carotid sinus syncope and is sometimes useful for differentiating supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) from ventricular tachycardia. It, like the valsalva maneuver, is a therapy for SVT.[52] However, it is less effective than management of SVT with medications.[53]
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. 

The massage types above are some of the most popular massages you can get, but there are many others. Regardless of the type of massage you opt for, be sure to tell your therapist which areas you especially need work on, whether you have any health issues, and, during the massage, how the pressure feels. When you find a therapist you like, you might want to book a standing appointment with him or her for pain and stress relief all year long.
Due to the great reviews, we decided to give this place a try. We were able to easily make an appointment via email with the company for the next day at the Asakusa Temple location. This location was a little tough to find, however, the pictures and description on the website did help some. Cell service wasn't great so we weren't able to look up the entrance specifics which certainly was a hassle! The place is up on the second floor behind the Mini Stop convenience store. We were immediately greeted by the staff with a jasmine scented cool wash cloth and cold ice water. After a cursory questionnaire and review of massage services, we were led to a Thai style massage mat. It is firmer and on the floor for the therapy. They have you change into a loose fit outfit before starting. We opted for the Leelavadee 150min combo. It was divine! Both the Thai massage and the essential oil deep tissue massage was great. Be forewarned that with the oil deep tissue, they are very liberal with the oil! It gets everywhere. Their massages are tailored to your particular concerns. The therapy ends with another jasmine scented wash cloth and ice cold water. We whole heartedly recommend this place. It is incredibly clean which is also a winning point. The ladies are strong and you will get a great massage! The prices are very reasonable! Don't hesitate! Make an appointment with them if you get the chance. We certainly will when we return to Tokyo.

Thai Massage is a popular massage therapy that is used for management of conditions such as musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. Thai Massage involves a number of stretching movements that improve body flexibility, joint movement and also improve blood circulation throughout the body. In one study scientists found that Thai Massage showed comparable efficacy as the painkiller ibuprofen in reduction of joint pain caused by osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee.[68]
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.

Came here yesterday with my bachelorette party (8) ladies including myself for a massage after a day of hiking. Spoke with the owner a month before to reserve a time. The owner was very nice and accommodating and was able to fit us all in at the same time. I have to tell you my massage was the best in Hawaii. I left feeling very relax and refreshed.  The owner was very nice and friendly, I am definitely coming back here when I'm back in Hawaii. Thank you for such an amazing massage.
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.

I first found out about this place when a close friend got us both massages here for my birthday and I have been coming back ever since. They are so good at getting your knots out! I work and exercise a lot, so it definitely helps me out. I recommend asking for Ploy, she has a good sense of touch, strong, but also takes the time to check in with me as well!

Thai traditional massage is a widely used massage technique in Thailand and is presently accepted by local Thai Ministry of Public Health. The technique is promoted but not well accepted internationally. There is a concern about the effectiveness as well as safety of this local wisdom. After a recent episode of concurrent acute heart attack and Thai traditional massage in a patient, the issue of possible adverse effects of Thai traditional massage is being widely discussed.

The 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles was the first time that massage therapy was televised as it was being performed on the athletes. And then, during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta massage therapy was finally offered as a core medical service to the US Olympic Team.[26] Massage has been employed by businesses and organizations such as the U.S. Department of Justice, Boeing and Reebok.[27] Notable athletes such as Michael Jordan and LeBron James have personal massage therapists that at times even travel with them.
Massage is hindered from reaching the gold standard of scientific research, which includes placebo-controlled and double blind clinical trials.[85][86] Developing a "sham" manual therapy for massage would be difficult since even light touch massage could not be assumed to be completely devoid of effects on the subject.[85] It would also be difficult to find a subject that would not notice that they were getting less of a massage, and it would be impossible to blind the therapist.[85] Massage can employ randomized controlled trials, which are published in peer reviewed medical journals.[85] This type of study could increase the credibility of the profession because it displays that purported therapeutic effects are reproducible.[86]
It was alright... I went here cuz the place I originally go to got booked. I did a one hour and the lady asked me 5 times if I was ok, and kept saying sorry... Left in the middle of the session to grab something, left the door open where people could see me half naked if they walked by... Kinda unprofessional but it was last minute appointment. Kinda pricey compared to my usual spot. I actually left more sore than when I came in... I dunno.. not sure if I'd go back
In ashiatsu, the practitioner uses their feet to deliver treatment. The name comes from the Japanese, ashi for foot and atsu for pressure.[32] This technique typically uses the heel, sesamoid, arch and/or whole plantar surface of foot, and offers large compression, tension and shear forces with less pressure than an elbow, and is ideal for large muscles, such as in thigh, or for long-duration upper trapezius compressions.[33] Other manual therapy techniques using the feet to provide treatment include Keralite, Barefoot Lomi Lomi, Chavutti Thirumal.
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. I would highly recommend the Royal Couples Package if you're looking for a relaxing date day. It's def worth the price.

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.

I went for a hot stone massage, she rubbed hot stones on my back at one point briefly but they weren...’t laid on my back like a usual hot stone massage. The massage didn’t flow and I question whether she was trained professionally. I felt the massage was rushed at the end. I also question why I wasn’t asked to fill out any paperwork or if I had any injuries or conditions. I won’t be coming back. See More
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.  
I got a deep tissue massage here. And this place is dope. I really like the decor. When they lead… I got a deep tissue massage here. And this place is dope. I really like the decor. When they lead you to the back it's super dimly lit and there are these branches coming out of the ceiling with lights on them. My massage was.... interesting. I can't really complain since I told them I wanted a deep tissue massage and I said on the form that I wanted them to go strong. But jeeeeeze. My back still kinda hurts from it. I've never had a deep tissue massage before. I just said it because work sucked that past week and I really wanted them to work the kinks out of my back, but I probably should have went with the traditional Thai massage. Either way my masseuse was a really nice guy and he kept checking in to make sure it wasn't too much pressure. Which I stupidly was like, "noooo totally fine loving the pain!" Basically, I'm weird. I need to work on that. Anyway I would definitely come back here. Read more
Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique used to gently work and stimulate the lymphatic system, to assist in reduction of localized swelling. The lymphatic system is a network of slow moving vessels in the body that carries cellular waste toward the heart, to be filtered and removed. Lymph also carries lymphocytes, and other immune system agents. Manual lymphatic drainage claims to improve waste removal and immune function.[47][48][49] 

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.
Went here to celebrate my anniversary with the hubs and local or not still loved the view! They welcomed us in quickly and were courteous and polite. It was our first Thai Massage and they literally massaged us from head to toe (we did the couples massage). If you are a light weight go with the light massage, if you are a heavy weight go with the light massage lol. My hubby was so relaxed he started snoring smh. Afterwards the only thing you will want to do is sleep. Trust Me! Immediately afterwards they unexpectedly gave us ginger tea. Best ginger tea I have ever had and with a strong, repeat strong kick to it. It was so perfect after the massage. If you are a professional relaxer or if you need a DEEP massage to get out those kinks definitely check them out!

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!
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.

This is one of the best places to get a legitimate true authentic Thai massage I have been coming here for several years usually I start out with taking a steam shower I gave you shorts to wear it's not too cold inside which is good when having a massage the last thing you want to do is be freezing while laying half naked on the bed and yes I said bed this is how Thai massages is performed walking on you if you desire stretching and pressure what I prefer is what's called the Thai  combination massage
My boyfriend booked our first full body Thai couples massage (literally our FIRST massage experience) here at Siam Thai. We've heard about many massage places but decided to have it here due to the various options and two different atmospheres (modern and vintage) at the Century Center. There's a private lot to park at. The fee (no matter how long we park) is $2 flat! Just don't forget to get it validated prior to leaving. He made a night reservation at their "modern" location for my birthday. We walked into the room and was greeted with a lovely scent, great night view of Waikiki, and a beautiful heart design to take pictures of/with. After entering, don't forget to take your shoes off! We were greeted by the owner, Tanya, and offered water as soon as we entered and waited for our room. She kept us company and led us to our room with two massage beds and another grand view. We were instructed on how to prepare as we waited a little longer for our masseuses to arrive. Being the awkward first timers we were, we actually didn't know what to actually do and expect. But our masseuses, Mary and Claudia, were very patient with us! Mary, my masseuse, began on my upper back and worked her way down to my legs and then arms (my favorite part). And surprisingly, I had a lot of knots, especially on my upper back. There were these two knots that would not budge unless I got the really deeeeep massage (but my body's too weak). Mary tried her best to press out my knots without hurting me (thumbs up to her!). She put coconut oil over my body as she worked, making it easier for area transitions. The oil felt more like a lotion combination, smoothing and rejuvenating my skin. In the end, we were offered water or tea. Siam Thai definitely takes pride in caring for their customers! My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our time at Siam Thai and will definitely be back for more massages. Especially trying to press those knots out of my upper back! The interior was beautifully done, service was superb, and the massage was excellent. Next time, we'll try out their other services!

Specialized massage tables and chairs are used to position recipients during massages. A typical commercial massage table has an easily cleaned, heavily padded surface, and a horseshoe-shaped head support that allows the client to breathe easily while lying face down and can be stationary or portable, while home versions are often lighter weight or designed to fold away easily. An orthopedic pillow or bolster can be used to correct body positioning.
I highly recommend Chinese Traditional Massage.  I booked a one hour Tui-Na Massage - Level II.  My body has been rather tight with knots and the massage that I got today really broke up those knots and the added stretching and cupping helped with the tightness I have been experiencing.  I felt much more relaxed after my session.  I look forward to my next session there.

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.
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!
I woke up with the worst neck pain and after dealing with it all day I called up Thai Spa Massage 2 and made an appointment for the same day. My Mom and sister went about a month before and loved it so I took my Dad and we headed over. For two 90 minute massages it was only $200 and we each had very spacious private rooms. They even have punch cards that you can use towards a free massage.

Giving this place 5 stars doesn't mean I would recommend Chinese Traditional Massage to everyone. If you approach massages as pain relief via eastern Medicine like I benefit, "Summer" could help you greatly My neck/shoulder/back are in constant tension, that the pain cause by my upper body makes me never notice my tired/sore legs from standing from working 40+ hours a week Summer find the nucleus of my neck tension immediately in a way that very few CMTs can & relieves my upper body pain can I comment w/ "How do you know where & how do you relieve it so quickly perfectly?" and Summer responds with something along the lines of "Duh" "That's why you're here" & She's 100% right & worth every penny Then once she handles my neck/shoulder tension, funny enough my legs/ankles/feet tighten up like I've been walking forever which she's provide the same relief where I walk out feeling & might even be taller walking out The best way to get an appt w/ Summer is to call a couple days ahead I get the 90 minute Thai massage for 120$ & it's worth every penny for me This is not Asha, Massage Envy, The Four Seasons, nor a gross place. Always clean & comfortable Their phones ring & front door bell rings & massage gets paused to handle walk-ins/call ins. Summer heals me until my job gets the best of me to then return, So what could be considered interruptions are pauses to me because MY PAIN IS GONE Bonus is the scalp massage & she sits your up on the table & stretches you sitting up making standing up an effortless act

The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Thai massage also utilizes energy work, which, according to ancient Asian culture, treats the subtle energetic field within the body. It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client's health. 
In addition there are many professional bodies which have a required minimum standard of education and hold relevant insurance policies including: the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT),[111] the Complementary Therapists Association (CThA),[112] and the Complementary Health Professionals (CHP).[113] In contrast to the CNHC these bodies exist to support therapists rather than clients.
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.

Due to the great reviews, we decided to give this place a try. We were able to easily make an appointment via email with the company for the next day at the Asakusa Temple location. This location was a little tough to find, however, the pictures and description on the website did help some. Cell service wasn't great so we weren't able to look up the entrance specifics which certainly was a hassle! The place is up on the second floor behind the Mini Stop convenience store. We were immediately greeted by the staff with a jasmine scented cool wash cloth and cold ice water. After a cursory questionnaire and review of massage services, we were led to a Thai style massage mat. It is firmer and on the floor for the therapy. They have you change into a loose fit outfit before starting. We opted for the Leelavadee 150min combo. It was divine! Both the Thai massage and the essential oil deep tissue massage was great. Be forewarned that with the oil deep tissue, they are very liberal with the oil! It gets everywhere. Their massages are tailored to your particular concerns. The therapy ends with another jasmine scented wash cloth and ice cold water. We whole heartedly recommend this place. It is incredibly clean which is also a winning point. The ladies are strong and you will get a great massage! The prices are very reasonable! Don't hesitate! Make an appointment with them if you get the chance. We certainly will when we return to Tokyo.

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.
Massage has been shown to reduce neuromuscular excitability by measuring changes in the Hoffman's reflex (H-reflex) amplitude.[89] A decrease in peak-to-peak H-reflex amplitude suggests a decrease in motoneuron excitability.[90] Others explain, "H-reflex is considered to be the electrical analogue of the stretch reflex...and the reduction" is due to a decrease in spinal reflex excitability.[91] Field (2007) confirms that the inhibitory effects are due to deep tissue receptors and not superficial cutaneous receptors, as there was no decrease in H-reflex when looking at light fingertip pressure massage.[92] It has been noted that "the receptors activated during massage are specific to the muscle being massaged", as other muscles did not produce a decrease in H-reflex amplitude.[90]

You definitely need to make an appointment.  Thai massages are amazing, but if you've never had one be aware they put a lot of pressure on your back.  They step on it, use elbows, anything they can to get to the problem.  Yes, you will be sore the next day, and maybe the day after.  But I assure you I only need to do this once a month as a necessary "mom massage." Being of Thai descent I can tell you they do an amazing job and worth every penny.

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.

Massage used in the medical field includes decongestive therapy used for lymphedema[10] which can be used in conjunction with the treatment of breast cancer. Light massage is also used in pain management and palliative care. Carotid sinus massage is used to diagnose carotid sinus syncope and is sometimes useful for differentiating supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) from ventricular tachycardia. It, like the valsalva maneuver, is a therapy for SVT.[52] However, it is less effective than management of SVT with medications.[53]
