I was invited for an experience at Seeing Hands and I must admit to initially feeling somewhat awkward about it. Upon arrival all those preconceptions were pretty much vanquished. It was surreal to experience a team comprised completely of visually impaired individuals, welcome us, prepare for and then deliver an amazing experience. Kamal was very perceptive and his ability to find areas in need of work and relaxation was unparalleled. Throughout he was professional, attentive, inquisitive and conversational. A great way to unwind sore and tense muscles after 14 days of Himalayan trekking.

I was very lucky to be informed about Ramji's talent for (customized) relaxing as well as therapeutic massaging! My trip couldn''t have started better. Ramji is very flexible and came to our hotel to give the best massage I've ever had for a very reasonable price! He is a very friendly and open person. I can recommend it to anyone and am planning to have another massage before returning home.

I chose sports massage therapy from a menu that includes Swedish massages and relaxing massages. Before the massage began I was asked about my injury history and areas that I felt required particular attention.

It was quickly apparent that Ramji was no ordinary masseuse, the expert precision and efficiency with which he went to work on my back, shoulders and lower back was akin to that of a seasoned physio or sports massage therapist (without the associated discomfort). There was a gentle and effective purpose behind every movement and by the end of the massage I felt renewed and now a day later there is no adverse sign of having spent the previous 2 weeks trekking and hauling heavy loads around Nepal.

The therapists at Seeing Hands have received some kind of expert training which has given them a firm understanding of anatomy and physiology. Together with their heightened sense of touch they deliver a truly remarkable massage experience.

Don't expect a fancy spa setting with a soundtrack set to birds chirping and water flowing but do expect to be amazed by the superior quality of the massage.

This place is second to none.

I have just been to the Seeing Hands Clinic yesterday and I am very happy I went there. I made an appointment a few hours earlier, but I suppose it is also OK to just drop in.

The clinic is in the top floor of a building near Hotel Himalaya and the Swedish Embassy, quite easy to find. Everyone was very welcoming when I arrived and it is a very professional place. Lulu was my masseur for the day. She is a really friendly and open young women. I could relax easily when she started the massage. I had a full body swedish massage. She kept asking from time to time if the pressure was alright and asked me to honest about this. She worked her hands around my many knots at my back and even found a blockade that hardly any masseur found so far (just my physical therapist at home).
After the massage I felt much more at ease though my neck was still hurting. Today, not even 24 hours later, I feel so much better and relaxed thanks to Lulu and her magical hands.

I actually found it quite difficult to find a decent place to go for a massage in Kathmandu. It is quite different from places like Thailand where it is somehow easier and also a litte less expensive.
But I am very happy to have found the Seeing Hands Clinic and to have met Lulu. I am surely coming back for another massage with Lulu.

I first heard of Seeing Hands when I was waiting to bungee jump off a suspension bridge in 2011. I made friends with a couple of German backpackers who had just finished a trek. They told me about this amazing massage they received in Kathmandu. I asked them for the name of the clinic and they told me all about Seeing Hands. I have had the privilege to visit their clinics in Kathmandu and in Pokhara. Both clinics were clean and the massages were incredible. During my last visit to Nepal in 2014 I had a chance to visit the new Lalitpur clinic... WOW.
The first thing that I noticed about the new Seeing Hands clinic is how CLEAN it is. Tourists in Nepal resign themselves to spas that are not as clean as we would expect spas at home to be. The Seeing Hands Clinic is comparable in cleanliness to the spas here in Montreal. The only thing that is not comparable is the massage itself.... its even BETTER than the spas here. I have received massages on 5 continents and the massages I had at Seeing Hands are by far the best I ever had. They were supportive to my needs. After a trek, they were there to loosen up the knots. If I wanted a more relaxed massage, the obliged. I cannot recommend Seeing Hands enough. Give them a shot. You'll be back.

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.

A must to get your muscles to function again!! Seeing Hands provide amazing massages. They are experts in the art of massage and there are two types available, Sports and Swedish. Each can either be 1 hour or 1½ hours depending on what you require. The place is very clean and peaceful. I have had many massages in my time, but I must say that this is up there with the best. This is a must when visiting Patan. Highly recommended

I went for a sports massage to the Patan Seeing Hands, and Ramji did not disappoint. The clean room, Ramji's therapeutic touch and his friendliness made it a very good experience. I will certainly go back again.

In my humble opinion, this is the best place in the area to get a massage. The therapists are fully trained and they really are experts in finding all the knots and tight spots. I have a problem with my shoulder and regular massages here keep the symptoms away.
