Hoyn is a fabulous therapist. She's experienced, intuitive, and I feel so much better after each time I've seen her. I've received several Thai massages in the past and Hoyn's was the best! She's an extremely talented artist as well - check out her art gallery after your massage.

WONDERFUL Therapeutic Thai Massage from K! I was late and he graciously extended my time. I am a massage therapist from Florida and have studied (although I do not practice) Thai Massage in Thailand where K did extensive training in many levels, and it shows! My hips, legs and ankles were extremely tight from travel and walking Edinburgh hills and he gently but thoroughly released so much tension. The setting is very calming and lovely and I was treated to a little post massage tea ritual before sending me out into the world again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND K and Shivago Thai Clinic! Thank you again!

No doubt, the absolute god damn BEST place for a massage, and none of the wannabe half-assed spa nonsense. They are dedicated, knowledgeable, and very adept. During my Masters, Hoeyyn helped (saved me, rather) me out with my myofascial pain and knots with her shoulder & neck massages. No matter the duration of the treatments, every single time I would come back feeling rejuvenated. I cannot thank her enough for making the year tolerable, for always being so ready to adjust the timings, and last but not the least - for welcoming me with a huge grin every time. Every penny well spent.

P.S. She is an incredible painter! And makes amazing cups of green tea.

I want to pack this place in my suitcase and bring them home with me!!!! They were brilliant!!! My husband and I have never had a massage as good as this one! They fixed my knots and went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were fixed and rejuvenated before we left! Can not recommend highly enough!!!
