  • I chose to do a massage thai d an hour. When you arrive at the center you do not choose your time to give us, imposed you, beware it is better in the morning because it is full quickly. It gives you a kind of wide Pajamas to be comfortable, then your masseuse wash you your feet then massage for an hour in a room with everyone (d or pyjamas lol)! Attention is not really relaxing but rather therapeutic massages. My masseuse was very talented, she m handed a few vertebrates, j. saved a session d osteopath! It takes also know that a massage in this Center is an act of solidarity because the masseuse will affect the money you pay to his release from prison, the Center brings a real training for reintegration.

  • I am a massage therapist and I love to try massage and give an honest opinion, since there is much intrusiveness in the sector! A good place to get a thai massage, eating, or even buy a little something handmade. It is a project that the Thai Government starts so that women who are in jail reinserten be in society to be autonomous since they usually lack friends and family and are not seen very well nor very accepted. This is a way to learn a profession and can earn life through massages, restaurant and hand-made products and thus little by little to reintegrate into society. The place is very nice, they are lovely, very friendly and attentive. The massage is perfect, they are constantly asked if the pressure is correct, denotes professionalism. Just do: Thai Massage Foot Massage since the room is shared so they can control them and a massage with oil, you have to get naked. They do not speak each other during the massage... IMPORTANT! they are what they should be. In the room is this very well, Dim light, silence and a piped music quiet with thai music. The Government has created a chain of spas to finish his sentence to work. Lila Thai Massage is called. Tomorrow I will go to try and I will give you my opinion. Sawadee kaaaaaa
