YES, I LIKE TO BOOK A MASSAGE TREATMENT
DON’T KNOW WHAT TO CHOOSE OR IT IS YOUR FIRST TIME?
WE RECOMMEND A THAI YOGA MASSAGE FOR 1,5 HOUR…
‘Fantastic massage, combining acupressure with passive stretches (Thai yoga massage). A masseur who is respectful, has shown passion for and pleasure in his work. I feel reborn and come back for sure.’
‘Well trained therapist. Great environment. I got a lot of relief from discomfort due to inflammation. I have already scheduled my next appointment.’
‘The massage therapist was great. She put very careful attention and just the right amount of pressure at the right spots on my problematic body parts (shoulder, neck) which we have discussed before the treatment. Furthermore she treated the rest of the body, so I returned to my work in total relaxation. I will definitely come back!’
‘Pleasant reception with tea and nice space to be in. The Thai Yoga Massage was amazing! It was also a nice introduction to this style of Thai yoga. Very detailed with many pressure points. I still feel the deep relaxation.’
‘I walked in but floated out. Loved everything!’
‘First time with Thai Hand and I had high expectations (had many Thai massages before): I cannot but express my satisfaction: it was great. Massage therapist/owner Manuel is very skilled and thorough and you can tell he learned from the best. He is passionate about his work and takes time to reflect afterwards. The Wat Po massage (deep acupressure and stretching) was actually quite painful, but I liked every bit of it (“enjoyable pain”). I’d really recommend this place if you want to shut out the hustle of everyday life and want to experience some rest and relaxation in a different way.’

Once you arrive at ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam, you will be asked to fill out an intake form to record any relevant medical history, injuries or physical conditions we should be aware of.
The massage therapist will talk with you about your medical conditions, and you decide together which massage will be the best fit for you.
- Change clothes:
In the dressing room, you can then change yourself into appropriate clothes for the massage treatment.
- During the massage treatment:
You will benefit the most from the massage treatment if you close your eyes and relax. The massage therapist will be at all times adjusting the pressure of the massage to soft, medium or hard, according to your needs.
- After the massage treatment:
After the massage treatment, the massage therapist gives you some time to ‘wake up from the massage’ as you might have been feeling like you have slept several hours. This is a very common feeling. The therapist might give you some recommendations for your ailments if you have any. Moreover, the therapist will offer you a glass of water or tea.
Realize that the benefits of massage tend to be cumulative, so typically, you will feel better as you get additional massage treatments.
I am pregnant, can I get a massage?
First of all, congratulations on your pregnancy! If you wish to get a massage during your pregnancy your best option is to go to a therapist specialized in pregnancy massage. Our massage therapists are able to give massage treatments to pregnant women. However, it is not our specialty. We, therefore, advise you to look elsewhere and come back to us after delivery. As a new-mother we are sure you would love our massage treatments and it is a very good idea for mothers of young children to treat themselves to massage treatments to stay fit and healthy. In the meanwhile, enjoy your pregnancy and soon your newborn!
Are there contra-indications for receiving a massage treatment?
A massage treatment can relieve many ailments, like: frozen shoulder, headache, migraine, back pain, ankle pain, stiff neck, abdominal pain, stress, insomnia, arthritis, knee-pain, menstruation cramps, high blood pressure and many more…
However, if you have a medical condition and are not sure if a massage treatment is something for you, please ask first advice to your physician who is treating you.
Before every massage treatment the massage therapist will have an intake with you to talk about your medical situation and you decide together which massage will be the best fit for you.
How can I expect to feel after a massage treatment?
How you feel after a massage treatment can differ from person to person and from time to time. Also it can depend on the type of treatment you had. We hear various comments after someone received a massage treatment. Here are some: ‘super relaxed’, ‘it was a bit painful sometimes, but now I feel much better than before the massage’, ‘I feel that I have been sleeping for many hours’, ‘a total deep meditation, finally I stopped worrying’, ‘I feel super energized!’
If you receive a treatment to reduce an ailment, the massage can feel somewhat painful at some points, because we are working on treating your ailment. So after the massage treatment you should feel much better and the pain of the ailment has reduced.
If you are stressed, you might feel very relieved, happy and relaxed after the massage treatment.
Just keep your body hydrated after the massage by drinking enough water or tea and don’t plan a heavy work-out directly after the treatment.
