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]
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
As the name suggests, deep tissue massage applies deep pressure onto specific trouble points. It feels very much like someone is torturing you on purpose by pushing into your knotted muscle, and the massage can leave you feeling sore. It's not just more pressure all over your body, however (which would be true torture), it's very specific, methodical treatment. As Moyer Wellness explains:
Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and state of anxiety.[79] Additional testing has shown an immediate increase and expedited recovery periods for muscle performance.[80] Theories behind what massage might do include enhanced skeletal muscle regrowth and remodeling,[81] blocking nociception (gate control theory),[82] activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, preventing fibrosis[83] or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep.[10][84]
This is such an unusual place. Not sure how they got all these fabulous reviews. 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. Needless to say she begrudgingly took me back to a room and left. Another woman comes in and starts massaging. As she is massaging I notice loud chewing sounds. Turns out she was chewing gum loudly and popping it too! I had never experienced anything like that during a msaage! The massage itself was ok with deep pressure, and they offered cupping therapy. They never bother to ask you why you are there or what your preferences are. Even when I kept asking her to focus on my neck and shoulders she just tried to follow her own routine and seemed annoyed. I decided to give it another try, so called again to make an appointment, and sure enough a woman answered and seemed confused when I requested the appointment. I asked if summer was there since I read great reviews about her. The woman started yelling at me!!! Honestly this place is so shady and unprofessional, I don't know how hell they got all these supposed stellar reviews on multipe sites like tripadvisor and thumbtack. For 70$ you can find so many other wonderful, professional and attentive massage places in the area.

GLOBAL ANTI-AGE CELL FORMULA with BIOACTIVE ANTI-AGE COMPLEX(Argania phyto stem cells and biopeptides) was particularly developedfor these deficits. Inspired by nature, the formation of new skin cells andskin’s own elastin are stimulated by means of the innovative EDP (peptides).The concentration of natural hyaluronic acid is improved, and themoisture depots of skin are replenished. Skin becomes tighter and moreelastic again, fine lines and wrinkles are diminished and facial featuresre-contoured.
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.  
Similar to other forms of massage therapy, the benefits of Thai massage for clients can include relaxation, increased mobility, as well as relief from the pain associated with many chronic conditions. However, Rosler cautions that she doesn’t recommend Thai massage to all her clients. “I have clients who I know just wouldn’t want to do this,” she says.

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!


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.

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] 

...It is very important to ALWAYS speak up and let your therapist know if you need the pressure to be corrected, (i.e. if you need them to lighten up because it is too deep, or to apply more because it is not deep enough). Most everyone needs more pressure in some areas and less in others. This occurs because muscle tissue that contains Trigger Points is more sensitive to pressure and can be tender to the touch.

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

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.

The cost of a Thai massage will really depend on where it is you go. You can get an amazing, one-hour Thai massage for ฿200 (about $6), but the salon itself might be less than luxurious. You can opt for one of the more expensive options, with the same massage, for upwards of ฿500 (about $15). While tipping is not necessarily a custom here in Thailand, we do recommend you tip your masseuse. The massages are incredibly cheap, and these people’s jobs are simply exhausting.
In Myanmar, massage is unregulated.[100] However, it is necessary to apply for a spa license with the government to operate a massage parlour in major cities such as Yangon. Blind and visually impaired people can become masseurs, but they are not issued licenses. There are a few professional spa training schools in Myanmar but these training centers are not accredited by the government.[citation needed]
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").

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
The most amazing massage I've ever had! Coming from someone who gets massages regularly in different countries, I think that's saying a lot. There was some confusion when I arrived for my appt. like the yelp booking did not get logged into their appt book. But they had therapists available and I got in quickly. I got a 2 hr. full body massage and a 45 min. Head massage. Yok was amazing. So strong and intuitive. I will definitely be a regular each time I come to Tokyo for work each month!
I absolutely love the massage at Balinese Traditional Massage. Berta is very intuitive and knows exa...ctly where the sore spots on my body are and loosens everything up. I thoroughly recommend Balinese Traditional Massage services to anyone wanting a pampering experience and remedial work on their body, thanks to Berta I'm a lot more agile and feel great. See More

To prevent further sports pain or injury, it’s important to learn the proper techniques for lifting weights and performing certain cardio exercises. Taking frequent breaks and wearing the proper outfit and protective gear can also significantly help reduce future pain and inflammation. If you’re unsure about your form and technique, ask a personal trainer, coach, or trusted teammate for help. Find the best sports massage in Calgary at Mantra Wellness Centre.
A licensed massage therapist should ask you about your health history before the massage. Thai massage may not be safe for someone with health conditions such as disk herniation, osteoporosis, recent surgery, or cardiovascular disease. If you're considering trying Thai massage, it's a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before getting treatment to discuss whether it's appropriate for you.

At Lebua Thai Spa, our licensed masseuse gives that extra measure of care to ensure our pregnancy massage clients are relax and comfortable. Clients must be in their second trimester of their pregnancy. Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complimentary choice for prenatal care. In part, it is a healthy way to reduce stress, backaches, headaches, and promote overall wellness during this special time stage.
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.

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?

On the last day of a birthday trip to Vegas I was feeling a little sore and strung out from all of the partying. I couldn't think of a better way to feel rejuvenated and relax before my evening flight. A friendly, professional, very thorough couples Thai massage for $140/hr The establishment was comfortable, clean and relaxing. Was worth every penny and I'll be back on the next Las Vegas getaway.


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!
Our Chinese Massage techniques are a uniquely based on the theory of Chinese Traditional Medicine (CTM) and are developed specifically to provide relaxation through our Chinese "Tui Na, Deep Muscle Therapy, Head Massage, and Reflexology methods we offer. These treatments have not just a physical effect, but an emotional, as well as our clients, tell us about their experiences with our massages.
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] 

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
Let's be clear, this is Thai style massage, not the usual Massage Envy or Canyon Gate true spa. There will be a lot of pressure, deep tissue work, as well as stretching like turning you into a human pretzel, but in a good way. 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. All in all, one of my preferred full body massage place after a snowboarding trip or if I have a lot of knots or tightness in my muscles.
Burynski came home and saw how quickly she could help clients with chronic problems. As she began to integrate Thai massage stretches into her table massage, her clients would speak up: “That feels amazing,” they would say. Eventually, Burynski returned to Thailand for further instruction, and then went on to become an instructor, opening her own Thai massage school, Living Sabai, in Asheville.

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.
    So if you read my previous reviews, you will see that I use to only see Summer....she answers the phone so its easy to ask her direct for an appt with her.....A month ago, Summer was gone for 2 weeks for Chinese New Year. Lily was still there so I ended up seeing her twice...and enjoyed it. When Summer got back, and to this day, I have yet to see her again for an appt. It almost seems like shes avoiding me....which might be okay, except after I had what can only be described as the WORST appt I have had...by far....given by Lily.

Came to Siam Orchid because my friend strongly recommended it. We went together, she had a great experience with a therapist called Pancake. Mine therapist was not as strong as Pancake. (Forgot her name) She couldn't give me the right points pressure. After all, I have been doing massage for over 15 years I know what the best is. I still would like to give it 5 stars because it's a very nice and clean place. You absolutely feel relaxed after having 1 hour massage. Lighting, background music and decoration are perfect here. I would also like to have another try next time.

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.
We are very faithful to the Thai massage tradition and therefore we try to evoke past eras through touch. After all, muscle manipulation is one of the most effective ancient techniques that has lasted until our times. Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today, especially because the feeling of pain can get worse and prevention is better than cure.

One of the greatest Persian medics was Avicenna, also known as Ibn Sina, who lived from 980AD to 1037AD. His works included a comprehensive collection and systematisation of the fragmentary and unorganised Greco-Roman medical literature that had been translated Arabic by that time, augmented by notes from his own experiences. One of his books, Al-Qānūn fī aṭ-Ṭibb (The Canon of Medicine) has been called the most famous single book in the history of medicine in both East and West. Avicenna excelled in the logical assessment of conditions and comparison of symptoms and took special note of analgesics and their proper use as well as other methods of relieving pain, including massage.
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.
I was excited to see Thai Massage has made it to PCB. I was also excited to discover what a gem this place is. After inquiring of my problem areas, Serie suggested I select Thai / Deep Tissue combo. Without a doubt, it was one of the most professional, healing massages I have experienced. Serie is most gracious and knowledgeable and obviously loves her profession. If you are looking for a healing, therapeutic and relaxing massage, you MUST call Serie. As a finishing touch, she will serve you a most delicious, personally steeped cup of lemongrass tea to compliment the massage. Oh, and those wonderful warm towels!!! Don't pass this place up!! Your mind and body will thank you!
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. 

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.
We use special thumb and finger techniques to work on small areas, or reflexes, on the feet. These reflex areas are connected to different parts of the body, so that in working over all the reflexes on the feet. You are in fact affecting the entire body. The main benefit of the reflexology is relaxation, but it also improves the blood supply and the functioning of nerve impulses.
The hot herbal compress contains numerous herbs lightly bound in fabric which is steamed until warm and firmly rolled. After a full body Thai massage, the hot herbal compress is pressed over the entire body in order to soothe muscle and stimulate the vital organs and senses. Thai herbal massage has many beneficial such as relief muscular aches, pains and tension. It also helps improve and stimulate the lymphatic system and increases blood flow and circulation. The contents of the hot herbal compress are prescribed according to the condition being treated, with some of the most commonly used herbs such as Zedoary (Khamin), Tumeric (Khamin Chan) , Lemongrass (Takhrai), Kaffir lime (Makrut), Camphor tree (Naat), Tamarind (Makham), Plai (Zingiber Cassumar).

I was in need of a massage as I felt a great amount of tightness and stiffness have built up in my body. I have worked in high end spas and this place definitely isn't that. You walk in, go into a room, and they get to straight working every knot and kink out, which I liked - getting to the point. This place looked and seemed unremarkable, but I was impressed. August was a tiny woman, but she had a lot of strength, firm pressure. I felt so much better the next day being able to concentrate on work rather than the pain of all the activities built up over the past few years since my last massage. I'm definitely making a monthly visit to this Thai massage place from now on. Definitely recommend.
Well the only ones to leave a positive review here has to be family and friends. After I told my 1sf therapist as a walk in that I had lots of lower back and hip pain she started treament by after 5 min she had a more important client walk in so I was pushed off to someone who never heard why I was there. After 10-15 min of a kitty cat pawing treatment I was suppose to be happpy. I asked to pay more For a deep tissue treatment but she said she didn't understand the English I was speaking. Of chourse 2 min after that she knew "do u pay cash" and "how much tip" "how much tip?' Stay away and get a professional
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.
We must admit, there was a snafu in our system not correctly do the time slot which created that unfortunate situation. We check every appointment, and you, unfortunately, booked it less than an hour ahead which is not supposed to happen. We also had on top lately customers who are booking online and not showing off, which is for us a predicament and we would say almost 90% who are booking an hour beforehand tend never to show up or are very late.  We are also short staffed right now and, especially on Saturday's, our business is very much a bit overwhelmed with clients.
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] 

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.

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.

I arrived early and was told that I should come back in ~30 minutes. Since the temperature was cold outside, I asked if I could stay inside and there wasn't an issue. I was told that I could lay on the bed while I waited but I decided I would just sit there. I used the Yelp app on my phone to check in and there was a discount. I spoke with the person behind the counter about the discount and I was informed that because I wanted a 90 minute massage and the 90 minute massage was already discounted, it would not apply. When the person was ready I was escorted to the room. Inside the room there were 2 massage beds. I was asked how long I wanted and I mentioned that I wanted 90 minutes. I was then asked to undress and go underneath the towel.

Love the loose clothing they give you and regular check-ins as to how it feels and whether to go easier or with more pressure. There were times when it hurt but as far as I know it's supposed to in order to target knots most effectively. A must to drink the tea afterwards. My body hurt the day after but the following day all pain and knots were gone. Completely gone. Read more

Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobileThey staff were very nice and accommodating. We wanted two different types of massage but they only have packages together. But they mixed it for us no extra charge. They speak good English and Japanese even over the phone. It's hidden on the fourth floor about an arcade but there's no noise issues. Will definitely be back!


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.

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.
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.

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.

First, I love walking into a place that makes you remove your shoes. Second, I love walking into a place where they remember who I am and actually greet me! I have been seeing Yupa for about two months now, and when I started, I could not play tennis, workout, run or move without being in excruciating back pain from a bulging disc in my lumbar. I don't even have to tell Yupa what to do. It's like she feels where the pain in my body is. I am hyper critical, and more likely to forget a massage place exists than return, but Metta Thai really has changed that. I love going here, I love the staff, I love the tea, and I highly recommend! Thank you for everything you do, Yupa!! You are seriously the best!

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.
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.

I have been going to Metta Traditional Thai Massage for the past six months. I should have written a… I have been going to Metta Traditional Thai Massage for the past six months. I should have written a review sooner but I have to admit -- I would like to keep the place a secret for myself and the others who regularly go there. I started with a 90 minute session every other week and quickly increased to a 90 minute session weekly. For every session but one, I have seen Yupa. She is incredible! Besides being a sweet, generous and giving human being, Yupa has excellent massage skills. She is very intuitive about what areas require attention but nevertheless always asks before starting whether there are any changes since our last session or areas I want more work. I have formal training as a massage therapist so I am quite particular about who I see. I highly recommend Yupa (just don't book my session times- LOL). I can also recommend Supinya who covered for one session when Yupa was out of town.

For routine general health and well-being. Full body massage using pressure points with passive yoga stretching. No oil is used. At Suchada, we perform authentic traditional Thai massage the way it is practiced in Thailand. The massage is done on a mat with the client fully-clothed. In Thailand, a traditional Thai massage session last two hours. For your best experience, we recommend a 2 hour combination of a Thai massage and foot reflexology. $73 / 1 hr. $110 / 1.5 hrs. $140 / 2 hrs.
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.
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.
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]
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!

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.
One of the greatest Persian medics was Avicenna, also known as Ibn Sina, who lived from 980AD to 1037AD. His works included a comprehensive collection and systematisation of the fragmentary and unorganised Greco-Roman medical literature that had been translated Arabic by that time, augmented by notes from his own experiences. One of his books, Al-Qānūn fī aṭ-Ṭibb (The Canon of Medicine) has been called the most famous single book in the history of medicine in both East and West. Avicenna excelled in the logical assessment of conditions and comparison of symptoms and took special note of analgesics and their proper use as well as other methods of relieving pain, including massage.
I've been looking for a good traditional Thai massage place in Oakland and haven't found one yet. I was randomly in Albany getting car repair and was surprised first at the huge number of massage places in 3 blocks. I checked the reviews on Yelp and folks were right this place is 100% legit. I've had a good number of Thai massages and this place was great and reasonable price. I'll for sure be back. And the idea of oil changes have gone from huge inconvenience to oh great the Thai massage is right next door.
