If you are looking for professional Thai massage, check out Healing Hands: Massage for the Soul in Itaewon. From the Seoul subway (Line 6), take Exit 2 and walk for a few blocks and look for a sign that says “Clinic Ever”. Inside that doorway is the staircase that will take you to Healing Hands; it’s on the 3rd floor.
Upon entering the establishment, it is a sensory experience with all the soothing sounds and aromas you’d expect. The owner/masseuse speaks English fluently and his masseuse partner has very good English comprehension, and they are very accommodating with your schedule as well as your personal needs. Making an appointment is advisable, but I have ‘walked in’ many times. They are open daily from 12:30pm to 9:00pm.
A one hour full body massage currently costs 60 000 won and they offer a variety of other services including hot stone and foot treatments. A nice option is the couples massage; it makes a great date, and you get a slight discount. Another added bonus is their stand up tanning bed, but don’t expect bulbs as strong as back home.
