Having had many Thai Massages during my travels I can rate Kei and Hoeyyn as an example of true excellence. Living locally, I have had regular treatments at the Shivago Clinic for the last three years . Every time I receive a treatment I am always in awe at their professional skills. Thank you so much.

My friend and I thought a wee massage would be a good idea as part of our stay.
We both found our massage really enjoyable.
It is important to note this is fully traditional so if you are after the more pamper approach with the bed etc this is not for you.
The couple who run this are lovely and very worldly.

After holidays in Thailand I thought I never will receive such a great Thai massage. I was wrong, I find Shivago clinic and I am so happy with my therapist Hoeyyn. She is definitely one of the best therapist I ever met. Such a professional, helpful, kind person. With my boyfriend we come often and always leave this clinic relaxed, not just the body but also our mind. Petra

I decided to try the Shivago Thai clinic based on the reviews here on Tripadvisor during my recent trip to Edinburgh, and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed a 30minute beck, neck and back massage which helped to alleviate the tightness in the muscles from on-going back issues that were aggravated by the flight from Canada to the UK. I was greeted by very friendly staff and made to feel very welcome. It was evident from the clientele, that it is a popular clinic for many locals, as clients were greeted by name. Having been to many high-end spas for massage treatments, this clinic provides an unassuming, honest and satisfying therapeutic experience without all the window-dressing. Perfectly located just off the Royal Mile, it is the perfect treat after a long day of site-seeing.
