Best treatment of my life so far :) I come from a massage therapist background myself and I have to say, the shiatsu treatment I got with the Thusare gentlemen was incredible! My partner and I went together and are so blessed to have met the therapists and the owner of such a great initiative - we felt the genuine energy the moment we walked in. The therapists have an in-depth understanding of the body and touch; the loss of sight means that their touch and ability to really feel and heal certain areas of the body is just indescribable. Couldn’t recommend this place enough!! We look forward to coming back in October and wish you all the best moving forward. Thank you again 🙏🏽 Sey and Ben
Suburb therapeutic massage, best in Sri Lanka. I've visited Talking Hands several times over the last years, all the therapists there are very attentive, sensitive and work very hard to give to a brilliant and satisfying therapeutic massage. Don't forget to tip your therapist - they are wonderful people.
