As a Thai who's received many traditional massages for decades, I can attest that the practitioners here are very well trained. This place is not like other establishments in Pai. It has the quality comparable to that of the original Thai Massage school Wat Po. What sets it apart: 1) cleaning of feet before entering the property. 2) you get to change into comfortable outfit suitable for the massage.
3) lockers to keep your stuff safe.
4) quiet, tranquil rooms - far from street noise. And doesn't feel like you are in a kitchen.
5) the practitioners applied the same massage sequence on left and right sides. You'd be surprised how often this fails.
6) the pressure applied to the body shop down not be sharp, but strong and long presses.
7) Your muscles should come away feeling like you had a good workout, with no sharp pains.

In Pai, as with many tourist destinations, you will see a great number of massage places with varying quality. This school is legit and definitely above the rest.

First ever Thai massage so hard to say how good it was. It was certainly painful in parts but my masseur was really lovely and paid attention to when I was flinching! An experience and as good a place as any to try it out.

Very reasonably priced. We did the 2 hour Thai massage and I've never felt better. Very respectful. Very understanding of people who've never had a Thai massage. I encourage anyone feeling aches, pains, or just wanting to relax to go.

We are in a group of 3 girls. We did a therapy massage for 1 hour and we all feel recharged! So impressive. The massagers could feel our pain and uncomfortable spot that basically, it's all tailor made for each of us. Truly a therapeutic experience.

And then we immediately booked another hour for the foot reflection massage, regardless of our last day in Pai. I bet you could imagine how enjoyable it was.

One more highlight was the hospitality. After the second massage, it rained so heavy that we couldn't leave. The owner let us stay and share with us his fruitful knowledge. After his explain, we were conceived to return for learning massage :P

To be honest, it's not a decent place and we even need to wash our own feet. But the way the owner present massage as a medicine; how sincere they treated us throughout the treatment, it brought us to TripAdvisor to highly recommend this small massage school with big heart!:)
