We went to Seeing Hands in late December 2019. It was small place but the massage was so excellent!
Thank you for the detailed full body massage by Kushel! Support social enterprise.

We booked a massage in tamel by mistake and we arrived in patan for our massage and they still manage to take US to do our massage.
The massage was one of the massage i ever had .
And when you do a massage with them you are actually helping the blind people to have a formation and a job around nepale. They open already 4 massage place around nepale and more are coming soon !

Thank you so much to Ramji and junu !
We will do one more massage in pokhara with seeing hands and hopefully we will do one in Katmandou again !!!

I had a lovely lady called Sunita who had a great energy about her. She was very accommodating to my needs as I have issues with my back. I opted for a sports massage and she was very skillful at this. I would definitely come back again.

While I can't give it five stars for some of the other reasons mentioned (facilities, bedding, etc.) I must say I had a good experience. Jima was able to diagnose my problem areas better than most other therapists I've had at other locations here and in the states. I love the cause and giving employment to those who in this society might otherwise be an outcast with no way to support themselves or their families.

Just had my 5th massage at this place by Jima who is an excellent massage therapist and much stronger than she looks! I've had back pain and leg/knee pain for many years since ligament reconstruction surgery in the UK, so try to come here every month. Very happy that I found a simple, but honest and good place for massage in Kathmandu/Patan. Both therapists here have great training. Highly recommended.

It was a great experience. But keep in mind that you're not going to a high-end spa and therefor won't encounter the same amenities. Instead you support a project for people with disabilities and in exchange exit the venue completely relaxed.

I injured my lower back and the massage definitely helped. I wanted to give this a 5-star review, but can't for a few reasons.

Although the towels were clean, the cover on the neck pillow and the sheet under the towel felt clammy and weird, both being made of some awful synthetic stretchy stuff with obvious oil residue. No doubt they had been washed, but still. Also, the carpet in the treatment room was oily and awful. Carpets don't belong in massage rooms. The slippers in the bathroom were really oily and dusgusting.

Also, I asked before I came whether the girl giving the massage was experienced with sports injuries and was told that she was. However, she was a student and had only been giving massages for 1 year. She was really sweet and I did feel she did a good job of what she was trained to do, though, and to be fair, it definitely helped, so I can't complain on that level. However, some things she said gave me a strong impression that their training could be more complete. It was surprising that she had trouble understanding that I needed a wet towel to wipe down in order to avoid getting my clothes oily.

But it's a great initiative and I hope they keep expanding.

Went with a friend who isn’t keen on massages and said it was so good he went back the next day.
If you want to release all that city tension or hiking knots go no further these people are amazing.
