Got back from trekking the Annapurna and my legs were so sore. Have now been to helping hands twice and both times were amazing. Had a blind man give me a "trekkers massage" the first time and I think it was the best massage I have ever had

we had massages at helping hands after trekking to Annapurna base camp. the staff were very friendly and professional, and the massages were wonderful. My friend ruined his legs hiking and found the 'deep tissue massage' to be very helpful in recovering (if painful at the time!). The massages were on the pricer side from what I could tell from...

A fellow traveller recommended visiting The Helping Hands Spa whilst in Pokhara and after reading the reviews in my Lonely Planet guidebook I decided to support the initiative. I chose the Swedish Massage and met my masseur an inspirational blind guy who gave me the most relaxing deep muscle massage which lasted an hour and afterwards I felt like a... More

I had read about the spa through the Lonely Planet and was very keen to support such a great centre aimed at improving lives for blind and deaf people. The massage treatment was excellent and I chatted to a lovely gentleman after my treatment, he is blind and was able to tell me about the excellent work this organisation provides... More

I had the most wonderful 90 minute massage with a deaf masseuse. Helping Hands promotes those with a disability to work. When one sense is lost others are heightened and the sense of touch was obviously heightened in my masseuse. Whilst more expensive than some of the other spas in town, I had a much better massage here than at... More

The massage was just okay. It seemed like more then half of it was just rubbing the oil into my skin, and then there was only a little bit of actual massaging. The girl who worked on me was very sweet, but she lacked proper training because I have some very sore kinks and knots in my shoulders and I... More
