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?

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 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.
Is a technique that focuses in the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic pain patterns of tension in the body. Through slow strokes and deep finger or elbow pressure on the contracted areas either following or going across the fibers of the muscles, tendons and fascia. It also helps break up and eliminate scar tissue that builds up in the body and reduce inflammation related pain caused by tendonitis and arthritis.

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.

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

The best Thai massage I ever had! I little far from My home but will drive that far for a massage. The owner is very nice and her staff are well trained, courteous and made me so relaxed. The whole experience too all the kinks out of my whole body. You should try the Herbal Ball. I will go back all the time and I highly recommend going to this place.
Massage developed alongside athletics in both Ancient China and Ancient Greece. Taoist priests developed massage in concert with their Kung Fu gymnastic movements, while Ancient Greek Olympians used a specific type of trainer ("aleiptes")[25] who would rub their muscles with oil. Pehr Ling's introduction to massage also came about directly as a result of his study of gymnastic movements.

There are many types of massage therapy, from classics like Swedish and deep tissue to more exotic styles like shiatsu. Whether you'd like to branch out a bit or have a health condition or injury, choosing a style of massage can be confusing if you're not quite sure what it involves. Here is a list of the most popular types of massage (including some that may be new to you).

As she continued to take courses and practice, though, Thai massage began to work on her. Rosler had an eye-opening moment as she was practicing a common Thai massage stretch. Squatting on her toes behind her seated client, Rosler placed her knees into the client’s back.With her hands on the client’s shoulders, she pulled the client backward over her knees, similar to a passive cobra stretch in yoga. Rosler realized, to her surprise, that she was securely in a squat position, without knee pain.


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.
$70 for an hour is reasonable but their massage is MUCH better than any other traditional place that you have visited.  The only downfall is that this place isn't one of the posh, tranquility type places like Asha (get extra pampered, zero sound/noises in entire facility, heated beds etc) - unfortunately I could clearly hear through the walls of conversations taking place but they didn't last long so it didn't really bother me.  
We are a brand new business in the heart of San Francisco at 39 Polk Street (the corner of Market and Polk) San Francisco California 94102.  All of our masseuses are licensed and insured and experienced in the ancient art of traditional Thai Massage.  We offer spacious and luxurious private rooms.  There is also a steam room and shower available.  Siam Orchid is beautifully decorated in all wood (the traditional Thai Style) and appointed with a state of the art sound system.  We look forward to seeing you.
If you’re looking for a great massage this is the place. The place is very clean and quiet. You can request male or female if you have a preference and the prices are great! You can’t beat them. The massages are awesome, I never feel cheated and always wish I had made my appointment longer- sometimes even add time. They really listen to what you want and like. If you prefer a light massage or deep muscle work. They’ll even walk on your back if you’re ok with that, they always ask ahead of time. There is no rush either. They let you know the time the exact moment they start and they massage to the second of the hour or two hours you are paying for, sometimes even over.
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

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!

Because Thai massage is done fully clothed, some people recommend it if you feel uncomfortable with the nudity. However, Thai massage is not the best choice for first-time spa-goers. Why? First, you're going to be lying on a futon with a therapist crouched over you, pressing on your legs, just to start. They might use the weight of their body to move your body into various positions to achieve passive stretching.

This was my first visit and I really enjoyed the massage. My friend and I called the same day and they were able to get us in a couple of hours later. I forgot my massage therapist's name but she was awesome. I highly recommend getting the massage that includes the hot stones. I like this massage place as compared to your typical massage businesses because they incorporate a lot of stretching. At the end of the massage, they spend about 5 minutes or so stretching your arms, legs, back and neck. It was amazing!

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]
3. Pull as much as you push. North Americans are accustomed to massages that involve using pressure, but Vietnamese massage takes it one step further and also incorporates a lot of pulling. Tugging at the limbs is a different way of encouraging blood circulation and also helps to reset joints. Hold your partner’s limb at the wrist and elbow or ankle and knee, and pull toward you. Also try slightly twisting the limb and pulling in various directions.
We were taken to a room for our massage. We both had the same service, the Siam Orchid Retreat Massage. I consider myself able to withstand pretty hard massages, but I found my experience kind of painful. I hadn't expected my masseuse to use her whole weight on me, walk on me, etc. And when I made a pained noise, she kind of gave me an attitude saying, "Well, you said you wanted hard!"

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."
Middle-Ages: Medical knowledge, including that of massage, made its way from Rome to Persia in the Middle Ages.[citation needed] Many of Galen's manuscripts, for instance, were collected and translated by Hunayn ibn Ishaq in the 9th century. Later in the 11th century copies were translated back into Latin, and again in the 15th and 16th centuries, when they helped enlighten European scholars as to the achievements of the Ancient Greeks. This renewal of the Galenic tradition during the Renaissance played a very important part in the rise of modern science.
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. Overall experience was amazing. It was easy to schedule an appointment with them, and parking was simple ($2 for the duration of your appointment with Siam Thai Massage). We're going back at some point in the future for sure!
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.

The consummate professional Sarah moved with ease through her protocol. While it was clearly a formula and recipe she was following she owned it!

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!

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.


During the 1930s and 1940s massage's influence decreased as a result of medical advancements of the time, while in the 1970s massage's influence grew once again with a notable rise among athletes.[10] Until the 1970s, nurses used massage to reduce pain and aid sleep.[21] The massage therapy industry is continuously increasing. In 2009, U.S. consumers spent between $4 and $6 billion on visits to massage therapists.[22] In 2015, research estimates that massage therapy was a $12.1 billion industry.[23]
This is the real deal. Yes, the exterior (outside plaza) might make you think otherwise but trust me, the place is legit. Inside the room was clean; I liked how they had all white sheets and towels. Some massage places have darker sheets/towels which kind of grosses me out. Anyways, I went here based on my fellow yelpers' reviews and I was not disappointed.  I've been having lower back pains, stiff neck and knotted shoulders (because I'm a stylist)....and let me tell ya, right after I was done with the 1.5 hour long massage, I felt like I was on a cloud. My back pain was gone and the lady loosened up all my knots. This is a Thai massage so just a little reminder that most of your massage is going to be done by feet, stepping on your back, etc.
Shiatsu (literally, "finger pressure") is an ancient technique from Japan. It combines gentle stretches with finger pressure to work on different pressure points. The idea is to fix imbalances in the flow of energy in your body. Although there's no concrete evidence of Shiatsu's use as a healing method, people who have had this massage still report stress and pain relief. About.com's Alternative Medicine site says:

BC 500 Jīvaka Komarabhācca, also known as Shivago Komarpaj, the founder of Traditional Thai massage (Nuad Boran) and Thai medicine.[citation needed] According to the Pāli Buddhist Canon, Jivaka was Shakyamuni Buddha's physician.[citation needed] He codified a healing system that combines acupressure, reflexology, and assisted yoga postures.[citation needed] Traditional Thai massage is generally based on a combination of Indian and Chinese traditions of medicine. Jivaka is known today as "Father Doctor" in Thailand.[citation needed]
I don't give out 5 stars because no one is perfect but they get my highest rating. It was easy to communicate with them and I was able to be seen when I wanted. The massage was very good and they even cracked my back Wich was a bonus. I felt very relaxed and happy leaving and the next day I was not terribly sore. I had a male therapist who was excellent. I'm used to these very strong girls but I would never say no when offered a mans touch;) the facilities were pleasant and clean. I think the value was good and I recommend them to anyone needing a little relief. I had the traditional Thai massageZ

Me and the mrs go here every month! They massage you exactly how you want it and it feels so nice! They are really nice and sweet but service can be a bit professional. They speak in their own language with each other when they are massaging which does feel awkward not knowing what they are talking about. Other than that its a good place and its value for money as they do a great job...
Deep tissue and trigger point massages are very similar. The difference is that deep tissue massage uses various traditional massage techniques to work the tissue, whereas trigger point massage is literally looking to manipulate or press on that one point that relieves tension in an entire area (perhaps not even nearby). For both, consider this contraption, which is an invaluable tool for torturing soothing sore muscles all over your body. This is a great guide on doing trigger point therapy for yourself.
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!
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'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.

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 possible adverse effect of Thai traditional massage is an issue to be discussed. The question to be addressed is whether Thai traditional massage could cause any problem to cardiovascular system. A recent report by Buttagat et al. found that Thai traditional massage “was associated with significant increases in hear rate variability (increased total power frequency and high frequency).”[4] Hence, it is no doubt that the massage might alter some cardiac function and can be problematic in the patients with underlying cardiovascular disease.
I am pretty sure that was one of the best massages I have ever had. I asked for medium pressure and she was right on point. She checked in with me at the start of the session, because I had indicated I wanted attention placed on my back on the entry form. I confirmed that's where I would like her to spend most of her time and she did. That was really cool. I know it sounds simple, but every time I fill out those forms they never ask me to confirm and I end up getting a total body massage with attention never placed in one single area as I had hoped.

A little strange, I've had massages elsewhere and this one has to be the worst, dare I say. Don't get me wrong I'm sure the ladies who work there work hard but they were a little pushy for my liking. We were told to take off our shoes ready for our foot wash in warm soapy water in a sink tub. (Which I'm pretty sure used washing up liquid not body soap as I could smell it)
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.
The main professionals that provide therapeutic massage are massage therapists, athletic trainers, physical therapists and practitioners of many traditional Chinese and other eastern medicines. Massage practitioners work in a variety of medical settings and may travel to private residences or businesses.[10] Contraindications to massage include deep vein thrombosis, bleeding disorders or taking blood thinners such as Warfarin, damaged blood vessels, weakened bones from cancer, osteoporosis, or fractures, and fever.[10]

If you don't like intense pressure and pain therefrom, Marisa is better for you. One day I got a Groupon (15 min foot, 60 min thai body massage, and steam room access) and went to book with someone Yelp said did deep tissue well, rainy, because Anna wasn't available. I booked with rainy but was given Marisa, whose massage was nice but gentler and did not meet my expectations for extreme deep pressure and good therapeutic pain from tension dissolving in knots.
I 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.

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.
An amazing synthesis of many techniques; leaning pressure, reflexology, energy line work, stretching and yoga. To achieve all of these effects, we use palms, thumbs, feet, elbows, forearms, and knee. To give a yoga massage uniquely different than therapy in any other modality. This system creates a powerful release of stress and tension an increase in vitality and well-being.
The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. In Thailand, a dozen or so subjects may be receiving massage simultaneously in one large room. The true ancient style of the massage requires that the massage be performed solo with just the giver and receiver. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.
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.
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.
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!!

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.
Is a technique that focuses in the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic pain patterns of tension in the body. Through slow strokes and deep finger or elbow pressure on the contracted areas either following or going across the fibers of the muscles, tendons and fascia. It also helps break up and eliminate scar tissue that builds up in the body and reduce inflammation related pain caused by tendonitis and arthritis.

Although thousands of years old, Thai massage didn’t arrive on these shores primarily until the 1990s, when Westerners began practicing it. Burynski took her first course in 2001 in California. “I felt as though I had met my massage soul mate,” she says. She took her first trip to Thailand in 2003, studying at the Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, one of the hubs of Thai massage education.

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 picked this place to treat my best friend to a massage for both of us on her birthday due to the 5 stars review. The good news is that my friend had a blissful experience and really enjoyed her massage, which was the most important part of the experience, especially since this was for her birthday. However, since I am the one writing this review, I will write out my experience.
If you’re looking for a great massage this is the place. The place is very clean and quiet. You can request male or female if you have a preference and the prices are great! You can’t beat them. The massages are awesome, I never feel cheated and always wish I had made my appointment longer- sometimes even add time. They really listen to what you want and like. If you prefer a light massage or deep muscle work. They’ll even walk on your back if you’re ok with that, they always ask ahead of time. There is no rush either. They let you know the time the exact moment they start and they massage to the second of the hour or two hours you are paying for, sometimes even over.
This is a wonderful extensive Thai Yoga Massage reference. The steps are clearly explain; sometime multiple version are offered. Pratical , methodical and time proven technique from the Northern Style Massage based on the founder of The Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai the major city in Northern Thailand. Definitelyone of those references book that you come back to over and over and find a new depth of information's.
1. Build strength and endurance. A Vietnamese massage is known for being powerful and initially tough on the skin and body. The benefits for your partner come after the session is done. As the masseuse, your entire body needs to be fully ready for the challenge before you even think about giving this type of massage. Lift weights and include cardiovascular activity in your routine so that your massages will be strong and will be able to last the full 60 minutes of a typical Vietnamese massage session.
Even the science of oil massage are originated from the west, Thais also uses fragrances and herbs is traditional healthcare for long time ago. WatPo's oil massage technique to manipulate the relax-able feeling. Rubbing and stroking through Thai massage lines all over the body apparently reveal you the differential experience of oil massage.

Thai massage – or Nuat Thai – combines both physical and energetic aspects. It is a deep, full-body massage progressing from the feet up, and focusing on sen or energy lines throughout the body, with the aim of clearing blockages in these lines, and thus stimulating the flow of blood and lymph throughout the body. It draws on yoga, acupressure and reflexology.

Most types of massage, with the exception of some traditional Chinese medicine are not regulated in China. Although illegal in China, some of the smaller businesses are fronts for prostitution. J.K., anti-prostitution operation has established sting operations to combat the situation.[98] These are called falangmei (发廊妹 "hairdressing salon sisters").

Deep tissue and trigger point massages are very similar. The difference is that deep tissue massage uses various traditional massage techniques to work the tissue, whereas trigger point massage is literally looking to manipulate or press on that one point that relieves tension in an entire area (perhaps not even nearby). For both, consider this contraption, which is an invaluable tool for torturing soothing sore muscles all over your body. This is a great guide on doing trigger point therapy for yourself.


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.

If you don't like intense pressure and pain therefrom, Marisa is better for you. One day I got a Groupon (15 min foot, 60 min thai body massage, and steam room access) and went to book with someone Yelp said did deep tissue well, rainy, because Anna wasn't available. I booked with rainy but was given Marisa, whose massage was nice but gentler and did not meet my expectations for extreme deep pressure and good therapeutic pain from tension dissolving in knots.

BC 722-481: Huangdi Neijing is composed during the Chinese Spring and Autumn period. The Nei-jing is a compilation of medical knowledge known up to that date, and is the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Massage is referred to in 30 different chapters of the Nei Jing. It specifies the use of different massage techniques and how they should be used in the treatment of specific ailments, and injuries. Also known as "The Yellow Emperor's Inner Canon", the text refers to previous medical knowledge from the time of the Yellow Emperor (approx 2700 BC), misleading some into believing the text itself was written during the time of the Yellow Emperor (which would predate written history).[7][8]

This place is absolutely wonderful! I have gotten massages all over the place from Asha, Heavenly Massage, Massage a Envy, Ritz Carlton hotel, resorts in Mexico etc... although all of the mentioned places are awesome and have their own individual thing that makes them awesome however I think I have finally found the place and therapist that I will be seeing regularly. Summer, she is an amazing therapist who literally moved my body in ways that I didn't think we're possibly - cracking and stretching my back, deep and thorough massage of my head/scalp, neck, shoulders, back, legs and even a phenomenal massage of my feet! I am telling you, if you haven't been here, it's an absolute must that you go and see Summer. This massage is completely different from the tradition deep tissue massage that you will receive at other places, Summer literally even walked on my back and used her feet/knees to massage my muscles. I have extremely bad neck/shoulder back along with lower back pain related to pinched nerves but Summer was able to relieve this pain. Even it is temporarily (because I just got my massage a few hours before writing this) it was definitely worth it and I will absolutely be returning. $70 for an hour is reasonable but their massage is MUCH better than any other traditional place that you have visited. The only downfall is that this place isn't one of the posh, tranquility type places like Asha (get extra pampered, zero sound/noises in entire facility, heated beds etc) - unfortunately I could clearly hear through the walls of conversations taking place but they didn't last long so it didn't really bother me. All in all, $70, extremely unique and wonderful experience and massage! Go see Summer!!
Lomilomi is the traditional massage of Hawaii. As an indigenous practice, it varies by island and by family. The word lomilomi also is used for massage in Samoa and East Futuna. In Samoa, it is also known as lolomi and milimili. In East Futuna, it is also called milimili, fakasolosolo, amoamo, lusilusi, kinikini, fai’ua. The Māori call it romiromi and mirimiri. In Tonga massage is fotofota, tolotolo, and amoamo. In Tahiti it is rumirumi. On Nanumea in Tuvalu, massage is known as popo, pressure application is kukumi, and heat application is tutu. Massage has also been documented in Tikopia in the Solomon Islands, in Rarotonga and in Pukapuka in Western Samoa.[46]

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.

Practiced for centuries, Tui-Na continues to grow in popularity. Tui-Na techniques and details of its successful uses in treating a range of health problems are documented in a vast treatise - The Yellow Emperor's Classics of Internal Medicine written about 2500 years ago. Tuina (tui na) is well suited for the treatment of specific musculoskeletal disorders and chronic stress-related disorders of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.
There may be other possible adverse effects which need to be focussed upon, such as the risk of fracture due to rough massage. One example is a report from Malaysia on serious spine fracture resulting in spinal cord compression due to traditional massage (Malaysia is a country geographically close to Thailand and shares a few traditional medical practices).[5] There can also be neurological side effects due to massage and need investigation. Although there has never been any official report about this, the problem of brain hemorrhage in infants due to traditional massage applied to the mothers during pregnancy has been reported.[6,7] In fact, application of traditional massage to infants can directly cause testes hemorrhage and such other internal hemorrhages in infants.[8] Finally, the risk of embolism due to applying massage to carotid area needs to be mentioned.[9] This can be the cause of cardiac arrhythmias and cerebrovascular accidents[10] that can further result in sudden death (in the latest indexed case, this cannot be rule out to be a cause). It will be of interest to note that in the present clinical practice, there are no guidelines for the practitioners for history taking and monitoring of vital signs of the patient before, during and after massage. 

I had a wonderful, relaxing massage at Siam Thai Massage over the weekend and I wanted to let everyone know about this hidden jewel new to Quincy. Siam Thai Massage just recently opened a few months ago so everything is clean and new there. I can't say enough about my experience there, from making my appointment to my massage, everyone was so friendly and professional. Looking forward to my next visit.
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.
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. So that we could do an investigation and we would get back to you later on. Thank you for your patience.
This place is a bit sketchy.    Not sure if it is legit and the "therapist" don't listen to what the customer wants.  They are extremely unprofessional as well.  The therapist never introduce themselves to you at the beginning but after the massage is over and when you go to the counter to pay, the strange man that runs the place gives you a card with a name, and the name isn't the same as the person who massaged you.

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.

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.

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

Friendly ladies! My first time Thai massage ever (although I've had plenty of Swedish and deep tissue massages in the states). After walking miles and miles a day exploring and long flight here, my body was aching and this is exactly what I needed. I booked a 90 minute Thai massage and the cost was 9000 Yen (she gave me a 10% discount though) I messaged through yelp and confirm my reservation easily. 

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. 

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.

Thai Massage, YES, please!! Found this cute little place on... yes, YELP. I enjoy very firm pressure massages and usually disappointed with therapists that don't have the strength or fluidity I enjoy in a massage. The petite gal I had was amazing. She walked on my back, stretched me in ways, I never been stretched and found knots I didn't know I had. If I'm in the city with time to kill, I will most definitely come back for more!

Numerous photographs and diagrams illustrate the variety of techniques used, and examples of routines for treating specific disorders are discussed. Updated with new layout, photos, and expanded text, this exhaustive handbook is complete with a section on the main energy meridians and diagrams of acupressure points, making it the perfect tool to accompany anyone studying this popular healing modality.
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

The main professionals that provide therapeutic massage are massage therapists, athletic trainers, physical therapists and practitioners of many traditional Chinese and other eastern medicines. Massage practitioners work in a variety of medical settings and may travel to private residences or businesses.[10] Contraindications to massage include deep vein thrombosis, bleeding disorders or taking blood thinners such as Warfarin, damaged blood vessels, weakened bones from cancer, osteoporosis, or fractures, and fever.[10] 

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.

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.

Me and the mrs go here every month! They massage you exactly how you want it and it feels so nice! They are really nice and sweet but service can be a bit professional. They speak in their own language with each other when they are massaging which does feel awkward not knowing what they are talking about. Other than that its a good place and its value for money as they do a great job...

Think of this like Asian vs Western style of parenting.  You may be used to a lot of "Great job!" or "I'm proud of you" and even hugs, but this is more like Tiger Mom tough love.  You get what you need, and sometimes what you need is a light ass kicking.  You will walk out a better person, but the experience will not be 100% comfortable while in progress.  However, one day, you may become a doctor, lawyer, or engineer because you've been tested by fire at the Thai Spa.  They may go easy on you if you're good at tennis or piano.
In May 2015, there were reports of a death case of a patient who had undergone Thai traditional massage.[3] The patient is reported to be a 37 year old Thai female who underwent Thai traditional massage and subsequently developed acute heart attack. The same was confirmed by the final autopsy report which indicated the cause of death to be myocardial infarction. The publicity led to a debate as to whether the death was due to Thai traditional massage. The Director General of the Department of Thai Traditional and Complementary Medicine (DTAM) stated that this was only a coincidence.

Thai massage works your entire body. It's one of the most invigorating types of massages, as the therapist rigorously manipulates your body, moving it into yoga-like stretches. (It's sometimes referred to as "Yoga for the lazy".) The therapist uses every part of his or her body—hands, knees, legs, and feet—to not only stretch you but also apply pressure on your muscles and loosen your joints. You might even get walked on! This type of massage is both energizing and, at times, relaxing.

While various types of reflexology related massage styles focus on the feet, massage of (usually) the soles of the feet is often performed purely for relaxation or recreation. It is believed there are some specific points on the feet that correspond to different organs in the body.[who?] Stimulation of these points during foot massage can cause significant reduction in pain.[citation needed] Studies also suggest that foot reflexology massage can reduce fatigue and promote better sleep.[45]
Because Thai massage is done fully clothed, some people recommend it if you feel uncomfortable with the nudity. However, Thai massage is not the best choice for first-time spa-goers. Why? First, you're going to be lying on a futon with a therapist crouched over you, pressing on your legs, just to start. They might use the weight of their body to move your body into various positions to achieve passive stretching. 
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.

It is believed there are some specific points on the feet that correspond to different organs in the body.[who?] Stimulation of these points during foot massage can cause significant reduction in pain.[citation needed] Studies also suggest that foot reflexology massage can reduce fatigue and promote better sleep.[45]

Although it was difficult to locate (go up the stairs and take the elevators on the side of the video gaming place), all the stress and tension went away after the massage. She did a great job focusing on my problem areas and I walked away from there feeling relaxed. They offer combination packages that are worth it so be sure to check out their website.
AD 1878: Dutch massage practitioner Johan Georg Mezger applies French terms to name five basic massage techniques,[13] and coins the phrase "Swedish massage system". These techniques are still known by their French names (effleurage (long, gliding strokes), petrissage (lifting and kneading the muscles), friction (firm, deep, circular rubbing movements), tapotement (brisk tapping or percussive movements), and vibration (rapidly shaking or vibrating specific muscles)).

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

If you are looking for a massage centre in Barcelona where you can isolate from noise and stress, Thai Spa Massage is the best option. Probably the best place to enjoy a Thai massage, since not only the therapists are specialized in centuries-old treatments and proven effectiveness, but the environment is cared for down to the last detail so that you can move mentally to the heart of Asia. 

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

The book also covers the spiritual nature of Thai massage, especially its relationship with Yoga . A step by step essential guide to Thai Massage practitioners that will help them to complete their practical training.
Traditional Thai massage, as it is practiced at Metta Traditional Thai Massage, is a dynamic healing art utilizing ancient techniques. The therapist applies gentle deep pressure along the body's ten sen lines (energy lines) to stimulate the body's energy to bring balance and health. In short, traditional Thai massage works along these meridians using a combination of yoga stretches, reflexology, acupressure, adjustments, and internal organ massage making traditional Thai massage one of the most energizing and healing forms of massage you will ever experience.
March Madness indeed. March was a busy month that contained flu's, cold weather, and extra cuddles but March is Birthday month for Mary so that means, as we locals would say, "go big or go home". We enjoy spa/massage experiences wherever it may be or what is offered; therefore, it was only right to treat her self - with a massage. Usually, it means I get to tag along for the experience; her birthday is a joy for all. Yay! Through the joys of social media, we noticed a few of our friends visiting a place named Siam Thai Massage & Spa, on a regular basis. It was our first time visiting but we called, booked a couples package and scheduled right away - As far as timing and flexibility, we were running a solid thirty minutes behind our appointment time but the staff at Siam Thai were gracious enough to start later with no interruptions to other customers.
An aromatherapy massage is a Swedish massage with scented plant oils (known as essential oils) added to the massage oil. Extracted from flowers and other plant parts, essential oils offer a pleasing scent and are believed to have healing properties. Lavender and rose, for instance, are known to promote relaxation. Although oils may be selected to address specific needs, the therapist typically uses pre-blended oils to relax, energize, or uplift.

The ambience is very nice, all wooden with orchids with incense or candles scent wafting about and steam coming out of a humidifier in the hallway. The room itself for massage is nice: private, spacious with relaxing zen music playing. You don't really hear any other movement or customers in the hallway. Very tranquil ambience. They pay attention to cute and chill details.

I picked this place to treat my best friend to a massage for both of us on her birthday due to the 5 stars review. The good news is that my friend had a blissful experience and really enjoyed her massage, which was the most important part of the experience, especially since this was for her birthday. However, since I am the one writing this review, I will write out my experience. 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. We were taken to a room for our massage. We both had the same service, the Siam Orchid Retreat Massage. I consider myself able to withstand pretty hard massages, but I found my experience kind of painful. I hadn't expected my masseuse to use her whole weight on me, walk on me, etc. And when I made a pained noise, she kind of gave me an attitude saying, "Well, you said you wanted hard!" I'm sure it's probably a language barrier, and the masseuse who was working on my friend seemed a bit apologetic and tried to help her with the scenario, but it sure didn't make me feel any less crappy. In the end, I didn't feel any more relaxed than I did when I stepped in for our appointment. I seriously paid nearly $100 per person for this??? I've felt wayyy more blissed out after rigorous sessions of cardio and weight lifting and strength training at the gym than here. I don't think I'll be coming back, unfortunately. But I'm sure they don't need my business, they have plenty of other 5 star reviews from other reviewers here.


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!

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!
