“Genuine massage + very reasonable price = a lot expats fans”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This place is located off Xuan Dieu street in Tay Ho where many expats live. This place really provides a nice, genuine massage (Japanese shiatsu, Swedish, oil, etc.) with very reasonable price (price is amazing for this level of massage!).

The place naturally attracts a lot of expats, and the place is usually fully booked over weekends. Reservations are highly advisable.

This place is housed in a normal house off the main street, so it is very silent and has a home-like atmosphere - simply relaxing. The staff are all so nice and attentive, providing good service and interface.

Where I usually have my treatment is not a private room, but each bed is properly separated with thick curtains, so there is not a problem with the privacy.

The place also has a nice shower room, so if you want to take a shower after massage, you could do so.

Although this place is not like a luxury spa, this place provides the best cost performance in Hanoi, highly recommended, and worth a visit!

“The best medical massage in Hanoi”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I have been living in Hanoi in 2008-2009 and encountered serious stress-related health problems. It took me few unlucky searches until I found Yakushi and they helped me greatly with acupuncture and therapeutic massage. I visited Hanoi again and learned that they still operate and even scaled up. It is still an excellent facility - highly recommended.

“They know what they are doing”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

This is the place you should go to have a true massage. The staff is well-trained and courteous. The atmosphere is relaxing and welcome. I don't go for massages often but if I go, this is the only place (I have tried some others) and many of my friends love the service here as well.

“Great place for traditional acupuncture & massage”
Reviewed November 4, 2010

I go to the place every week. Dr Thuy is really a friendly person and she is very knowledgeable about what she is doing. If you have any back pain, neck pain, tell her and she will make a quick test and decide how much energy she needs to fix and how many times are recommended.
beside the acupuncture, the place offers Shiatsu massage and hot stone massage too.
Working hours is their happy hours and it's recommended to call and reserve in advance since they are most of the times, crowded. especially at the weekend.
The team are very professional and know what they are doing. The place is a hub for expats living in the area and very popular.
Price is reasonable too. There is no spa services.
