“Those who know - go....”

Asia Herb Association - Sawatdee shop
Reviewed 18 February 2012

A more upmarket, excellent massage organisation. Used by many expats and those who know Bangkok well... Absolutely nothing "smutty" or doubtful here..... Not the cheapest but one of the best..

Not cheap for Bangkok, but they do have the best staff in the business. Quality of the practitioner is everything for a good Thai massage and they seem to vet their people well.

I was visiting the 2nd shop soi 24 th June 21st. I was frequent visitor to this shop for years.
Over the time the quality of massages have gone down even more so the rooms and decoration not to mention aircon which is either too cold or must be switched off. This was my last visit. The professionalism of the women who massaged me
was inexistent. The room was not clean and particularly the shower was filthy. I tried to communicate this to a receptionist (male, japanese) soooo sorrry.
I always regarded Japanese as sophisticated people. I am not sure if this is the policy of the house to keep westerners away by giving them dirty rooms and unqualified masseurs.

I actually went to the Asia Herb Assoc. shop on Soi Thonglor, Sukhumvit. You should make bookings ahead of time as they are often full, even though it's a huge building. You fill out a questionaire asking if you want strong, gentle or medium massage, and which 2 areas you want the masseuse to concentrate on. I had my feet washed and was led into a concrete room with no windows and the ac was not turned on, but it was only a little stuffy. I changed clothes and waited 20 minutes while I guess my "herb ball" was heated up. My masseuse then came back and worked on me for the allottted time, and was exactly what I had expected in terms of massage. She was very competent, strong, and she obviously knew what she was doing. However, even though she did eventually turn on the AC, there was no music, or flowers, which is ok, but for a place that charges a premium it's nice to have the little extra touches. The herb ball felt good as it was really hot, but she placed it for miliseconds on my skin and I wasn't really aware that I received any benefits from this. Was it worth the extra cost? Probably not.

When I am in Thailand I get a massage every day and I have had many many massages. AHA is probably one of the better ones I have had, but it feels very institutional. I would say it's not as impersonal or factory-like as Healthland but similar. I will probably come here again but if this is the only massage you will have on your first trip to Bangkok it might be disappointing, since it is basically a good massage in a concrete box.
