I have been to Hoeyyn for thai herbal compress and thai theraputic massage and she is without a doubt the best massage therapist I have ever been to.
The approach at the clinic is very holistic, it is clear that not only is loosening and stretching out your muscles important, but also clearing your mind and allowing positive energy to flow through you.
The massage is very dynamic, and tailored to your needs, with Hoeyyn genuinely caring for your well being. I feel in very safe and professional hands and only wish I could go more often. I would recommend a treatment to anyone.

Thank you!
Claire

I booked the Thai therapy treatment for pain for both myself and my partner, to enjoy whilst on holiday in Edinburgh. Kei and Hoevyn were both very friendly and we found common ground in the fact that Kei is portuguese, as is my partner. The treatment experience was great (hoevyn treated me) and it was different to any treatment I've had before (I've had many) as it was a very holistic approach. We moved around a lot during the treatment to different positions, so it is by no means a 'lie down for a hour and get pampered by oils' type of massage. In my opinion it was far better, just as relaxing and far more effective. I only fear that the standard has been set too high now and I will struggle to find something similar locally. I will definitely be trying though and I can recommend this treatment to anyone suffering pain.

Myself and 2 friends all had the full body massage and would happily recommend this to our family and friends. The staff are very welcoming and the service and massage themselves were a great experience. We will be returning upon our next trip to edinburgh
