I visit Smile Thai Wellness about once per month. The deep tissue massage I have with Joy is very thorough. It includes a series of acupressure movements where she is walking and kneeling on my legs and back, shifting her body weight in different ways to gently stretch out all the tight areas. I've found this regular massage to be... More

Really what we have looked for. Although it seems to be not very common in Canada, we've been very satisfied by this massage. We know Thai massage and we love the hard pressure and deep tissue style of this massage. The rooms are very nice and the smell (lemon grass) is perfect. We had a couple massage and it was... More

We went to this spa for the first time today, after looking at tripadvisor reviews. I was worried at first that this place may be too touristy/gimmicky, but we were surprised by how professional the staff members were. The spa is hidden in an office building, without too many decorations or lightings outside. Once we entered the spa, it was... More

Have had many massages before, but never a Thai massage before. The masseuses are very in-tuned with the limitations of your body resulting in one of the strongest, yet most gentle massages that I have ever had. I.e. painful at times, but always what was just needed. If you don't want it as strong though, they ask you at the... More

As a massage-junkie - I like all sorts of massages. I have known Austin and the Smile Thai staff since they opened and always make a point of booking a few massages every time I am in Vancouver - they are that good! Professional, skilled, intuitive and welcoming - this is money and time well spent - regardless of what... More

Had two massages done and enjoyed both. I liked the traditional massage more then my oil massage but both were good. Thum and Yod were very kind and i felt relaxed throughout the massages. Smells nice the second you walk in , a kind of citrus smell . Not too pricey, relaxing, clean, quiet. Good to relieve some stress or... More

I didn't like my massage experience there, but it can be that I didn't know what exactly what I was going to receive. The staff were polite and the facility was nice and clean. It also smelled nice and it looked like a great place for relaxation. I knew I wasn't getting an RMT so I didn't expect to get... More

You must go here for a massage. Best massage ever. I was seen by Yod and she was highly trained and passionate about her work. The facility is relaxing and extremely quiet and clean.

Walk in off of Richards past the inner garden, and follow the sound of water right to the very back (up a few steps) and turn right. This is a small place that creates a relaxing atmosphere, but it is not a full service spa. The “welcome drink” is some water. The “facial treatment” is not much more than an... More
