“Decent massage for a good cause”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

USD$6 for an hour pretty good value and a good massage by blind masseuse. You share the room with other clients rather than having a private area.

“Very therapeutic !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

The masseurs are all blind and you wear a linen robe. The whole experience is very relaxing and safe/clean. It's low cost but you should leave a $5 or $10 tip.

“Much appreciated after travelling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

As you can probably guess, the people giving the massages are visually impaired. Some of them speak English, which is helpful when the pressure is too much. We went twice, and each experience was a little different. If they don't ask and you have a specific part of your body that you want them to concentrate on, tell them. The lockers that they give you are not very big so bring as little as you can. The massage was $7 an hour, and in my opinion, well worth it.

“Fantastic massage for a good cause and a good price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

My girlfriend and I both got one hour back, neck, and shoulder massages in an air con room for $6 each. Excellent massages with a good amount of pressure. Your money goes directly to a good cause. The air con room is much more private and atmospheric than the fan tables which are out in the open. We were offered cold water and towels before and after the massage and the staff was very friendly. When we asked about tips we were directed to give the money to the massage therapists themselves which reassured us that the money was actually going straight to them. We've gotten massages all over Southeast Asia and I'd have to say that Seeing Hands' are some of the best. The sign isn't particularly noticeable from the street but it's right across from Friends Restaurant (also highly recommended and for an equally good cause).

“Good cause; liked it but maybe not for everybody”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Across from the Post Office. Trains and supports the blind. The rooms are plain, basic, air conditioned with 4 - 6 tables in a room. The body massage is done dry over a top and pants (like hospital scrubs) that they provide. They have foot reflexology and body massage, both for $7/hr. The technique is mixed pressure point, Swedish and a bit of Thai. Although lacking in some of the ambiance and scents of the fancier spas, the massage was much firmer (which I prefer) than the others I had in Cambodia and well priced. Interesting organization. Good cause. Well worth the $7. Most of the other people there seemed to be locals.
