I am pleased to say that Shivago Thai Clinic is where I had one of the most relaxing massage treatments in the last 3 years. After the massage, not only did I feel relieved physically but most importantly l really felt good "inside" as well. The owners are warm, genuine, and inherently kind people. I am very grateful to have... More

My wife and I booked a thai massage in this spa. It's so handy just off the royal mile. From the moment we entered we were made to feel welcome and at home. I had a wonderful massage and great banter with the lady. The gent who performed my wifes massage was also a true expert she said. We had... More

I have a permanent problem with my neck – osteochondrosis, however, regular morning exercises and massage help me to lead an active life. But this July, after playing football, I got an acute attack of the neck pain. I was almost in panic since my masseur was away and the usual exercises didn’t help while the neck movement was strongly... More

My bud and I just happened upon the clinic in passing and thank goodness that we did. The massage was amazing and the people were so kind. They even helped us find a good restaurant for dinner and a bunch of recommendations for our evening. They went above and beyond for us and really made our short trip in Edinburgh... More

After playing golf I was suffering with a restricted neck movement. Quite by chance, I visited The Shivago Clinic and within 30 minutes had much improved movement. I have never had such a good massage; I just wish the clinic was in Liverpool and not in Edinburgh! I think I will make it an essential part of any future trips... More

Awesome massage, free tea after and they even spent time recommending places for my friend and I to eat and places to see. Would definitely go back here if I come back to Edinburgh again.

This was possibly the best massage I've ever had in my life! My back was in knots after transatlantic travel and jet lag. I was considering looking for a chiropractor, but the massage dissolved the knots and the pain! Highly recommended.

I've been treated by Kei at the Shivago Clinic for about 3 months now and can't recommend him highly enough. The whole experience is relaxing and calming and he has reduced my pain levels hugely. Going weekly really helps me keep on top of things. If you're reading this review and wondering whether to give it a go, I'd say... More

I have been to Hoeyyn for thai herbal compress and thai theraputic massage and she is without a doubt the best massage therapist I have ever been to. The approach at the clinic is very holistic, it is clear that not only is loosening and stretching out your muscles important, but also clearing your mind and allowing positive energy to... More

I booked the Thai therapy treatment for pain for both myself and my partner, to enjoy whilst on holiday in Edinburgh. Kei and Hoevyn were both very friendly and we found common ground in the fact that Kei is portuguese, as is my partner. The treatment experience was great (hoevyn treated me) and it was different to any treatment I've... More
