My boyfriend and I went here after being suggested we go to another place in town, but after doing research on TripAdvisor we saw Seeing Hands was the top rated. We've had so many massages done back in the states and in Thailand but nothing compares to the thoughtfulness, thoroughness and touch of these two. Such wonderful, deep, & intuitive... More

Awesome sensible and professional massage in Kathmandu - one of the best I've ever got! And I know what I'm talking about, massage professional by myself. It seems like the senses of the eyes expanded to the hands, and what an admirable dedication... Highly recommended.

I visited this place for massage after reading the review in TripAdvisor. I had a very relaxing deep tissue massage by a male masseuse who is visually impaired. He was very good at finding right pressure points and pressing them enough to relive my lower back pain and make my muscle relaxed. I think all his energy was coming to... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend. I first went to their partner place in Pokhara, twice actually. It was fabulous so I went back to get another massage in Kathmandu. My dad went as well, three times, and we can say one of the best massages ever! Thank you!!!

We had a very relaxing massage with oil. Very quiet place and friendly staff. The massage was very good and it was nice get away from Katmandu caos, noise and traffic for a while.

Have had a lot of massages in different areas of the world and this one is definitely up there with the best. Reasonably priced and they definitely know what they are doing with the sports massage. Perfect to loosen any sore areas after trekking in the country! Nice to feel like you are supporting a good cause at the same... More

I discovered the clinic when I was in Kathmandu in 2015 and was so impressed. I have a recurring issue from an old whiplash injury and periodically need physio. I usually need several weeks of treatment but Ramji sorted it out in just two sessions. I'm back in Kathmandu and despite very bad pain and tension headaches, I was feeling... More

I tell everyone I meet in Kathmandu, or anyone I know will be lucky enough to visit there - how amazing this place is! A friend recommended it to me 2 years ago and I can't thank her enough. I literally wish I could go every day! Last month I visited Nepal for more trekking and I literally got off... More

I do not exaggerate. Years and the way of living had left traces on my body. Too much sitting, lack of exercise or (at least) long walks were main reasons why my once sports body became ruined by negligence. My therapist was Laxmi - small, charming and shy person who did a real miracle. When I was asked what kind... More
