“Better than rolfing or myofascial release”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I went to Pilai in July 2013after having tried so many different types of massage and therapists to help with the several body aches related to my lower back, the cramping muscles and even a rotator cuff injury. Pilai has patiently worked with me, releasing every tight muscle, with discipline, patience, a very special attention. It is now October 2013 and I feel like a new person, in a new body. I reached a level of flexibility and I am pain-free for the first time in a long time. All thanks to Pilai. She is quiet, polite, very professional and very firm in her technique. I have to say that I also tried other Thai massage therapists but nobody comes close to her .I truly believe she is fantastic

“Great Massage Experience”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Just got off a long flight and went to see Pilai to get my muscles back in place . The new location is brighter and more contemporary, definitely appealing.

What hasn't changed is the quality of Pilai's craft; I had a lot of massages around the world and she's top notch without reservation. Her signature massage combines different styles and she's addressing problem areas accurately and with just the right pressure.

Pilai has a calm personality and remains focused throughout the session, so don't expect any chitchat. But if you're looking for a great massage in peace, then this is definitely your place.

“Therapeutic and healing”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

My first Thai Massage and it was incredible. Pilai manages to stretch you in all directions while massaging at the perfect places. You wear clothes...not naked. The pinched nerve I've had in my hip for the past couple years is gone! I agree with the other review, not for the weak of heart. I hope Pilai is still here when I return to NYC in a couple years!

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

This was the best massage ever. Not for the faint of heart, but you'll appreciate the high impact of the massage as energy pathways get unblocked and blood flow is restored to your entire body. This is a must before you go walking in NYC.

NOTE: It's on the 15th floor (1502).

“Massage Therapist PILAI”
Reviewed 23 August 2010

is an excellent, efficient, sensitive therapist.
Her Thai massage therapy provides me with increased blood circulation, oxygenation and other benefits like removal of pain in my legs due to cramps. I can recommend her to all my friends.
