Wow! I have never had a massage that felt like it got right to the knots and tension. I always leave a salon feeling a little bit disappointed that I've payed good money for someone to lifelessly pat oil on my back. NOT THIS TIME! This massage has CHANGED MY LIFE! I am an absolute convert to thai massage. I don't know where that little lady got her strength from, but she is a legend! I am forever grateful! 😜

Both staff and treatment delightful, couldn't fault it. The only downside was that I could hear other people having treatments! Bit off-putting, makes it harder to relax

Took my boyfriend for a couples massage he went for a more sports one I asked for deep relaxation, we were both very happy therapists were very friendly and fantastic at their job. I personally have been looking for a good massage for ages I found it and will definitely be returning thanks ladies.

One of the best massages I've had in ages, re-booked straightaway for the following week. Can feel the difference in my shoulders the next day. Thanks very much.

went in for a deep tissue massage, it felt more like a Swedish massage rather than a deep tissue one. slightly disappointing since my really stuff neck and shoulders (that needed concentrating upon) did not feel any better.

tried a facial and a massage. must say the massage was better than the facial, which is what I really went in for. came out feeling relaxed and recharged.

A relaxing atmosphere and decent prices, it's open Sundays too which was great! I would recommend this venue to friends.

The masseuse tailored my treatment to exactly what I needed so that it was genuinely therapeutic and not just an indulgence. I find Thai massage techniques particularly beneficial for those who tend toward a rigid musculoskeletal system.

good quality venue, very professional host and staff-could not fault them at all. The massage however was a bit wanting. I wanted and booked a deep tissue massage and asked the lady to focus on neck and shoulders, however I received a full body massage with not as much focus on neck and shoulders. I will book again though, and really stress upon needing more attention to neck and shoulders since the massage was still fairly good.

I have been meaning to try this place for a while, but have been a little put off by the general external demeanour of the place. The Wahanda offer tempted me and I opted for the 1 hour Thai massage. Not really knowing what to expect, I opted for a firm massage, having been promised that it would be strong and not painful.

My masseur seemed very slight but I had not taken account of the use of elbows and body weight to achieve a strong treatment. She was very competent and pleasant and gave my body a complete working over. The hour passed quickly and I emerged slightly groggy. The proffered glass of water was well received.

I would return and recommend this venue to friends and family.

I would recommend a Thai massage to my friends. I explained to Noi that it was my first time and she was very gentle with me. The 90 minutes seemed to fly by and I felt energised and relaxed for the rest of the day. Incredible!

I'd never been for a massage before of any kind so Thai massage was probably jumping into the deep end. I didn't know what to expect but went for the aromatherapy massage. Overall I felt very relaxed by the end, the girl was so nice & everyone was very welcoming. I had a lot of tension taken from my upper back but this was at a cost of discomfort. In pain today but would go again, something has obviously worked. Thai massage is vigorous though & not for faint hearted. Slept well afterwards too.

I went for an hour massage with Sherie and it was fantastic, really intuitive and knowledgeable therapists that can really 'fix' your knots! Will definitely be going again and I highly recommend this place. Wonderful little gem in Chorlton.

Lovely lovely staff and a fantastic massage. It felt very in tune to my body as aposed to a 'scripted' massage. Came out feeling refreshed and relaxed. Hope to return soon ! Oh and the Thai tea and post treatment chit chat was the cherry on the top. Thanks so much :)
