It was interesting, and you could tell it was a training place, but thats what made it more fun. However I would suggest also trying one of the other local places like Lila Message afterwards. to see what an experienced message would be like.

This place is amazing. After backpacking around carrying a heavy bag the best this to have was a thai massage, of course. It was great and such an interesting place. It is probably one of the best things I had done in Thailand and everyone should go.

The best $200 TBH ($8 CDN) I have spent! My sister and I each got the foot massage (1 hour), which is really a foot + lower leg massage. We got there around 12:45 and the next availability was 1:30. We sat in the garden and enjoyed some cold beverages as we waited. The massage started with a foot bath... More

The day before going to the center, we had read in a forum that we needed to have an appointment to get a massage but this is not true at all. They actually do not give appointments. We arrived around 8.30 and there was nobody there yet so we really enjoy our massages. The ladies were very kind and cheerful.... More

I have taken 2 hour massage in Chiang Mai Women's Correctional Institution. I was expecting bit specific place, but it turns out it is well made massage place for about 20 quests. I do admire the cause and that is why I have decided to go for a massage there. Since this place is well known and extremely popular by... More

Excellent project supporting female offenders currently serving a custodial sentence. The massage was brilliant and very professional. The facility helps the women to learn new skills to enable them to gain employment once they have served their sentence. The Officers who cover the reception area are extremely friendly and chatted about their job at the prison. I would recommend arriving... More

I wish I could give this massage a higher rating, as I really like the idea of supporting these women with skills to make a living, but since 2 days I have had a totally blocked neck and upper back after my massage, so I can't...
