Amazing massage, Safe Environment, Skilled Staff
Feb 2020
I had a 90 minute Shiatsu massage with massage therapist Rajita, and it was one of the best massages of my life. He is extremely skilled. I felt safe and cared for, and it was incredibly healing. As a solo female traveller, I am not quick to book massages with male therapists, but I am so glad that I took a leap of faith and trusted my intuition. This is a very good place.

I am also very happy about the way this organization serves and employs blind members of the community. Please go get a massage here- it will bless you and others to do so!

Great massage

Had visited with my husband. The therapists were very humble and great at their work. Rajit did an excellent work, knew his massage technique very well,released all the muscular knots. Clean hygiene place. The staff is welcoming. Must visit once if you're in Colombo. Highly recommended.

My therapist was highly skilled and professional. As a young woman, I also felt very comfortable and respected being treated by a male. Excellent massage would highly recommend :)

Nice place for blind massage
Aug 2019 • Couples
I just went there after seeing reviews in Trip Advisor. My experience was so so. I booked a head neck and shoulder massage for 30 minutes but the masseur gave only a head massage. I guess he is a rookie. The head massage was not even up to the standard of a head massage in a barber shop. I felt pity for the young masseur because he has not been taught the skills of massage properly and about his own self. Blind people tend to be less in personal hygiene duty their disability. His body odour was too strong for me to bear. Management should teach them about their personal hygiene. .

Excellent Massage
Jul 2019 • Couples
They have a range of options to choose from. Personally I always go for the 60 minutes 'Head, Neck & Shoulder' massage. They really sort out my shoulder issues from awkward sleeping. You can tell the staff really know what they're doing and focus on the areas that really need attention. The cost is perhaps higher than a usual local spa but it contributes to helping the blind massuers, so it's 100% worth it. Not only do they offer excellent massages it's a good cause, helping blind people who would otherwise struggle to find meaningful work.
This was our third visit and we'll definitely come back time and time again.

One of the best massages
May 2019 • Friends
My friend and I went to get massages and we both had amazing masseuses. It’s an inconspicuous refurbished house with a calming organic atmosphere. Plants, relaxing music, cold towels, etc.

The masseuses are visually impaired and as a result it feels like they understand your muscles more. No messing around, straight to the good stuff kind of massage. If you like strong deep tissue massages or Thai massages then you will really enjoy this place.

Note that you cannot request a specific masseuse, and you just get who is available.

Worth Checking out
Mar 2019 • Solo
The general ambience of this place isn’t one you would generally associate with a relaxing spa and more with the types you come across in Bali or Thailand on most street corners. The expectation in those cases is to get a quick and cheap massage which is sort of what you get here too.

I visited this place twice, first time received a one hour full body massage for Rs3,500, second a 30 min foot massage at $2,500.

I thought the full body massage was more value for money and felt better following the treatment. Word of caution that it is a firm massage without any oils and they press on certain nerve / pressure points which will hurt.

The foot massage was pretty useless and I believe the therapist was either tired or didn’t know how to do it properly. The therapist concentrated more on my calves than the actual feet which is where I wanted the work done. I got a better massage from the automatic foot massagers in Singapore airport to be honest.

Overall I think this establishment is a great endeavour and definitely worth checking out. The rating is reflective of my overall experience across the 2 visits.

Great massage!
Mar 2019 • Friends
Unfortunately I discovered this place the same day I was leaving Colombo.. Otherwise, I’d definitely go there again!

When we got there, we were greeted with cold cloths and cold water. If you like your massage a little rough, then this is were you can get it. My masseuse also checked my joints before the massage, as well as checking throughout if I were ok.

Very reasonable price, and professional manager.

At first I was sceptical about having a massage fully dressed and with no oil because it’s not what I am used to but this massage far exceeded my expectations. The masseus made me feel comfortable and was lovely. He kept checking to make sure the pressure was ok- which it always was. He found pains I didn’t know even know I had. I had my treatment in the same room as someone else but it was so good that I didn’t mind the pressence of the other guest. I left feeling very relaxed and that I’d supported something great. I’m only sad that I leave Sri Lanka tomorrow and won’t be able to go more often. I am going to try and fit one in before my flight tomorrow, it was just what I needed. He knew where my worst knots were and tried to work them out.
