Located in 853 Richards St near Chinatown this Thai wellness place is absolutely amazing! Tum provided the best deep tissue Thai massage I have ever had in my life. Working with computers I often have sore shoulders and upper back but after an hour in Tum's experienced hands it all melted away. Highly recommended!!!

This was my first Thai massage experience and it was amazing. Being stretched and massaged at the same time was amazing. I am sore but in a good way. It was yoga with massage. It was very calming and centering and it just made my body feel so good. Can not wait to go back. I highly recommend it.

I'll start with the good!!! The entrance is incredibly relaxing to start off, you take off your shoes, sit comfortably in a chair and inhale those relaxing fumes coming out of an elephant (cheesy but so nice). We went as a couple and got separate massages. They were the best massages we've ever had. Both therapist could find our exact... More

The setting was lovely and clean. The massage (we had a couple's massage) was exactly what we both needed (personalized for our individual trouble spots). I have had many "Thai" massages in Thailand at the best places and I liked this better than any other places that I have been.

This place is very relaxing. It had the smell of lavender, you take your shoes off once you arrive, & the seating area is very intimate. The massage room I was in was clean, relaxing, & beautifully decorated. My therapist was professional and gentle. Definitely a MUST if you're ever in Vancouver.

While visiting Vancouver, BC this past August my travel companion and I decided to book massages before our return to the United States. We coordinated with the Westin Grand Vancouver, our place of stay, for suggested spas and Smile Thai Wellness was our subsequent selection. Having played several rounds of golf I opted for a deep tissue massage. I will... More

Thanks to tripadvisor we discovered Smile. This was my first thai massage, and the combination of firm pressure and dynamic adjustment was great. Yod was a great masseuse, and was just what I needed after several long days of walking. The studio is in the back of an office building, a very short walk from where we were staying at... More

Because of the great recommendations on Trip Advisor, I took a friend with me to the Smile Spa for a 90 minute traditional massage. The two therapists who worked on us were skilled and we left feeling physically quite different than when we arrived. The effect lasted for a number of days and really made us value the spontaneous decision... More

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
