I went here twice for a massage during a month long stay in Kathmandu. The staff were friendly & helpful. The massage was firm, like a sports massage so If you are looking for a relaxation treatment I would go elsewhere. My masseuse was professional & would find problem areas such as knots in neck & shoulders & work on... More

I found Seeing Hands through Trip Advisor, and the wonderful reviews are dead on. Great massage for a great price and most of all, for an amazing cause!! I got a massage from Santosh when I arrived in Kathmandu (along with two other friends who received massages from two other therapists). All of us were very impressed with our therapists... More

Helping blind and otherwise pretty much doomed people to a job and having a great massage at reasonable prices. This is the place to go. We were very satisfied by the treatment.

I'm sure this is a great place but it was very difficult to find. Perhaps they know that they are top on TA and think they dont need to make it easy? By the time we found this place, it was fully booked, a no mean feat as there are hundreds of spa in Thamel area. It is also the... More

Hi Zimalc, Thanks for your positive feedback, and your tips for others on finding the clinic. We're really sorry to hear you had trouble finding it, it certainly isn't because the staff there don't think they need to make it easy or are trading on their reputation. They've tried many things but our signs get taken down by other spas.... More

I got a 90min massage for 2600nrp. The massage was relaxing and the therapist regularly checked in to make sure the pressure was ok. They were very busy the day I went. It would be a good idea to book in advance as they may not have space for walk-ins.

I returned from EBC trek and was looking for a good massage. Chanced upon Seeing Hands and thought why not receive enjoyment while supporting a meaningful cause? My masseur was Laksmi and and she had excellent massage skills! I would have gone back to her again if I had more days in KTM. Conveniently located in the heart of Thamel... More
