Another amazing experience at my hands down favorite place. Drove an hour to get here and it was EVERYTHING I expected. Booked 90 minutes and enjoyed every second. I got walked on, cupped, every kink in my body was worked on and it was amazing. Word of advice, if you want something - ASK FOR IT. Yes, people don't speak English perfectly. Yes, people have different cultural quirks that may seem rude to us. However, I have learned to walk in and literally say exactly what I want. I walked in and told Summer: I want you to walk on me, use your knees, feet, etc. I want cupping, and I want you to not hold back at all. My headache, back tension, knots, and all my stress...GONE! I went home and slept like a baby. 100% satisfaction and an amazing , fantastic place!
In New Zealand, massage is unregulated. There are two levels of registration with Massage New Zealand, the professional body for massage therapists within New Zealand, although neither of these levels are government recognised. Registration at the Certified Massage Therapist level denotes competency in the practice of relaxation massage. Registration at the Remedial massage therapist denotes competency in the practice of remedial or orthopedic massage. Both levels of registration are defined by agreed minimum competencies and minimum hours.[104]
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!

Every therapists are very nice and polite.

Medical Massage is a controversial term in the massage profession.[50] Many use it to describe a specific technique. Others use it to describe a general category of massage and many methods such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release and triggerpoint therapy as well as osteopathic techniques, cranial-sacral techniques and many more can be used to work with various medical conditions.[51]
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 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.
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.
A 2004 systematic review found single applications of massage therapy "reduced state anxiety, blood pressure, and heart rate but not negative mood, immediate assessment of pain, and cortisol level", while "multiple applications reduced delayed assessment of pain", and found improvements in anxiety and depression similar to effects of psychotherapy.[54] A subsequent systematic review published in 2008 found that there is little evidence supporting the use of massage therapy for depression in high quality studies from randomized controlled trials.[55]
This place is in a strip mall, so the first time, I wasn't sure what to expect. Inside, it is small, but comfortable. The massage, was wonderful. The rooms are private. My masseuse was incredible. People ask me what a Thai Massage is. I say it is similar to a regular massage, but with yoga where they do the work for you. They bend and stretch you to get all those kinks out. This has become one of my favorite massage parlors. I always leave feeling refreshed.

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 excited to see Thai Massage has made it to PCB. I was also excited to discover what a gem this place is.  After inquiring of my problem areas, Serie suggested I select Thai / Deep Tissue combo. Without a doubt, it was one of the most professional, healing massages I have experienced. Serie is most gracious and knowledgeable and obviously loves her profession.
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...
Is all this traveling making you sore? Is the weight of your backpack taking its toll on you? Fret not, as Thailand is home to some of the best massage parlors in the world. Traditional Thai massages are hands down one of the best things about traveling through the Land of Smiles. They are cheap, incredibly relaxing, and an experience you cannot miss out on. Here is everything you need to know about Thai massages.
Sometimes confused with pressure point massage,[10] this involves deactivating trigger points that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, in other parts of the body. Manual pressure, vibration, injection, or other treatment is applied to these points to relieve myofascial pain. Trigger points were first discovered and mapped by Janet G. Travell (President Kennedy's physician) and David Simons. Trigger points have been photomicrographed and measured electrically[70] and in 2007 a paper was presented showing images of Trigger Points using MRI.[71] These points relate to dysfunction in the myoneural junction, also called neuromuscular junction (NMJ), in muscle, and therefore this technique is different from reflexology, acupressure and pressure point massage.
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.
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.

A Thai massage is an ancient form of healing that combines the concepts of yoga and energetic Chinese practices. About 2,500 years ago, Buddhism spread from India to Thailand. Along with this increasingly popular spiritual practice came a form of healing that had taken root in the community of Buddhists. When these new ideas reached the shores of Thailand, they mixed with the Chinese concept of the energetic body that was already being practiced.


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.
Very rude. Customer service is non existent. They do not listen to what your needs are. The Prices change on a whim. Massages are cut short of full time. You can hear people in the lobby while in the massage room. This is not your typical relaxing massage therapy. The massage itself was nice and firm and cupping was done properly, but it isn't worth the highest prices in the area when they end early, treat you with a lack of respect, even yelling at you and other customers, and the yelling continues as you go into the massage room as the front desk answers phones because there is no music or sound proofing or attempt to speak to people at a reasonable volume. The woman at the front desk seems so aggravated and irritated that you are even there.

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.

Pain relief: Relief from pain due to musculoskeletal injuries and other causes is cited as a major benefit of massage.[10] A 2015 Cochrane Review concluded that there is very little evidence that massage is an effective treatment for lower back pain.[87] A meta-analysis conducted by scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign failed to find a statistically significant reduction in pain immediately following treatment.[79] Weak evidence suggests that massage may improve pain in the short term for people with acute, sub-acute, and chronic lower back pain.[87]
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.

I'm not an expert in massages, but I can tell you the 60 minute deep tissue massage did wonders for my back and leg muscles and the whole experience was very relaxing. A nice break from the stress of traveling. Setting up the appointment through Yelp was very easy to do. They will send you directions because it is not easy to find from street level (business is on the fourth floor). The elevator on the left only goes up one floor. If you take the Tokyo subway to Roppongi station as I did and go up any random exit, it may be hard to find. Recommend following the directions they provide and exit the station using the closest exit.
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").

The "Chinese Traditional Massages" was established in 2015, with over 10 years of extensive experiences and came out of a need to specialize these Chinese Tui-Na and the Zhi Ya Massage Therapy methods for customers which have issues with their bodies and seek an alternative pain management and gain comfort, healing, pleasure. In order to really see the difference in this field is to compare and try us out.
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!
To prevent further sports pain or injury, it’s important to learn the proper techniques for lifting weights and performing certain cardio exercises.

Wow! Thank you again, Yelpers! I've been dying for a massage, but I've been so busy in addition to my therapist being on vacation at my usual spot (right upstairs). I called last night when I finished work and asked for an 8p appointment for 90 minutes and boom, appointment was made - 5 Stars right there. Upon walking in, I was greeted by 2 females who were both very nice, gave me compliments, which again, earned 5 stars; I came after work in scrubs, and I knew I looked like crap lol! We chit chatted for a few minutes and she escorted me right into the room. The bed was so amazingly soft! I swear the massage beds have down stitched into it somewhere. I waited a few minutes and a lady walked in, but I didn't get her name. The massage started off rather mediocre, kind of like a first blind date where you don't expect much. We talked the whole time, and I was totally fine with that, and about 30 minutes in I thought - meh, nothing great. She started working towards my legs, but I had told her in the beginning that my shoulders were the culprit of my pain for over a month. Mid conversation I politely asked to refocus on my shoulders and THAT'S when the magic happened. She worked them bad boys like a scorned ex gf. I'm hurting today, but I feel so much better. Granted, not ALL my pain is gone, but I feel much more comfortable going through my day today. I will gladly return! Thank you for a great first time experience.

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.  

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]

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.

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

They are so nice too. The girls really seem to care about your needs and wants for your back and/or muscle areas. Also, the strength of the massage you are looking for they stick to. I recommend the Swedish/deep muscle mix massage. It’s the perfect mix of stretching and deep muscle work (or as deep as you want it to be). I love it and always leave feeling relaxed and much more flexible/loose. I highly recommend this Spa.

Been checking out different massage places looking for that "one"! I saw a review my friend did about this place and based on his comments, I had to bring my husband here to try it. I like that I could book my appointment using the yelp app, and Siam Thai responded right away. I requested for a 10:30a appt the following morning and was able to confirm a spot for myself and the hubster. The venue is easy to find, especially if you're using GPS, Waze or Google Maps. Tanya the Owner was great with the details of getting to the place and the parking situation. When we got in, there was a little misunderstanding on what type of appointment we set. I had requested 1 foot reflexology for me and 1 body massage for the hubby. They thought we were both getting a body massage and and then a foot reflexology. I see how this could have happen since the communication was with the owner instead of them. I liked that they put us both in the same room. After 5min's of my husband getting his massage, he knocked out!! I was surprised and not at the same time. I know his masseuse was just that good!! My masseuse was great, even though I only had a foot reflexology, it felt like my entire body got a massage. I felt relaxed and feeling so great! My husband couldn't stop raving about his massage and thai massage is now his favorite type! So, I would have given this place a 5 star as it deserves, however, I was turned off that my masseuse kept taking/making phone calls during our session. So much for getting that full relaxation experience. Not only was she on the phone, but she was trying to make conversation with the other masseuse...which she responded, but in a whisper tone. If not for this distraction, I would have given 5 stars.
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I was inflammed and my back was spasms in pain so much I couldn't think or see straight. I knew i needed to find a place to get a massage on the way home and I read the reviews. I am so happy i went in!! Walk in are Welcome thank goodness!! I was taken to a room right away. I got the combination massage as i had never had a Thai massage before. It was perfect. The pressure was great. Very Clean place. Very nice staff. Combo massage was $70 for an hour!! Awesome prices. I tipped $30. They also do couple massage and body scrub or a combination of both. Hot stones included with the hour. My experience was worth it. I'd go back in a instant!!
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:
The standard type of massage offered in most clinics, gyms, spas, and wellness centers, Swedish massage is virtually synonymous with massage therapy. Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, compared to the energy-centric style more common in Asian forms of massage. Using lotion or oil, massage therapists typically begin with broad general strokes and then transition to specific strokes to address problem areas.

I rarely write reviews. I like massage and I have tried a lot of massage places. Finally, I found Siam Orchid! This place is very cute, I have gone through many times but have no chance to try it. One day I was looking Thai massage on Yelp, the siam orchid has a lot of good reviews, so I decided to give them a try. I've been there 3 times, everyone was amazing. Today I need a deep tissue massage so I went there without an appointment. The place is quiet and clean, staffs were friendly and professional. I picked the 90 mins deep tissue massage with the female masseuse, the front desk sent me to the room then ready for my massage. During the massage, my masseuse was pretty professional, she used the right amount of pressure and always asked me If I ok. She recommended walking on my body gently, she has a lot of experience. After my massage my body felt very soft and relaxed. I asked her name which Tanya, I read a lot of good reviews from Tanya. I finally know why Tanya so popular unite I tried her massage!! Lastly Siam Orchid has a discount for weekday 11am-3pm, which more affordable. I will definitely come back again!!
