Not only you support a really good cause, but you also enjoy a great massage! Of course it is not your regular spa, with lots of options to chose from (they only offer Thai massage or foot massage), but it is very well kep, clean, tasteful and the massage you get is fabulous..... and cheap!!! The women that work there... More

Very professional massage at a great price. Also lovely that the women are learning a trade that may help them in later life. A great experience and very relaxing. Id recommend the full body massage

Just love this place, always so cool, green and welcoming. Both the wardens and the beautiful ladies who conduct the massage are intent on you feeling relaxed and cared for....when we stay in Chiang Mai we always use the facility at least once a week, we like to support the system that offers the ladies alternative lifestyles once the leave...

It was 180 baht for a 1 hr body massage (150 for feet). My husband and I arrived at around 11 AM and the next opening was at 12:20. We walked around and got coffee before coming back. Inside the women were professional and gave a nice Thai massage. It was a relaxing room with dim lighting, nice music and... More

Not only are you helping women with their rehabilitation, you're also getting a decent massage for a good value price. It's strange to see the prison warden book you in for your massage, it's an experience I would recommend anyone visiting Chaing Mai. You have to book in advance, earlier in the day is usually fine. They get booked up... More

It's a nice place to see and visit and getting a massage from an inmate is definitely an experience. However, like many of the other reviews said; the massage itself wasn't particularly special (not much pressure applied). It's a nice place and the woman were all lovely and give you a nice tea after your massage!

Getting an expert Thai massage is a wonderful experience - even more so when you know that with the (little) money spend, you support women on their way back into life! They are well booked, so make an appointment in advance!

We stumbled on the restaurant when searching for their massage enterprise. The restaurant was lovely, super clean, great, attentive service, wonderful a/c and a great staff which is sometimes hard to come by in Thailand. Food was lovely and a very goid value for the price. And of course its a wonderful program for incarcerated women to get the skills,... More

We went to the Women's Massage Foundation, just a block away from the Correctional Institute (it's run by former inmates), since the Institute had a 2 hour waiting list. The Thai Massage I received from Nana was OUTSTANDING! Like a strong but gentle tiger pawing and pushing and pulling me all over. When I stood up at the end I... More

When I first heard about this program I wasn't sure what to expect, I was very pleasantly surprised. The building is beautiful and clean with a patio cafe, the women were skilled and professional. We received incredible hour long massages for 180 baht. Also, the money goes to the women once they are released. This is a great experience for... More
