I went there with my boyfriend.
Throughout my massage I was NOT at all impressed with the therapist who worked on me. Two reasons:
1. Her finger nails needed to be trimmed. Certain movements that she did where she squeezed my muscles, I could really feel her nails digging into my skin. Not a pleasurable moment.
2. Her pressure is fairly strong, I have no complaint about that. But when she finds certain areas of my body that is particularly tight, instead of massaging the area and coaxing it to release and let go, she pressured on it so strongly, causing my body to immediately tense up and I am about to scream. It felt as if she's trying to prove to me that it's tight. At the same time she chuckled and said "it's tight huh". No kidding. Again, not a pleasurable moment.
I get massages on a regular basis. So I have learned to distinguish a fabulous masseuse to a mediocre one, to one that I will never go back again. This definitely falls into the category of "I will never go back again".
I was not surprised, but I was definitely not happy about it.
My bf said his masseuse was not strong enough for him, We will never come back.
Absolute Bliss!! – I absolutely LOVE this place. It is, by far, the best bang for your buck. And I don't mean that literally. I have been to several thai massage joints in Los Angeles and have felt a little sketched out by my surroundings and what goes on behind closed doors. This place gives off zero sexual vibe and is incredibly professional. It feels a little cold and sterile when you first walk in, like a Drs office from the 80's. But then the host/hostess leads you to your partitioned room (they have mats and tables) and you feel like you entered a completely different world. the atmosphere alone is soothing. They give you shorts and a top that opens up in the back to change into and then you are in the hands of the masseuse for the next hour. There is lovely thai music that runs on a loop but I completely forget about it once Arthur begins his magic.
Let me just say a few words about Arthur. He is amazing! After reading the rest of the reviews, I know I am not the only one that feels this way. I have been getting massages for over 10 years and he is the best I have ever had! He is kind and intuitive and knows exactly what your body needs. I was previously doing 1 hours, but last night I did an hour and a half with him and I will keep on with an hour and a half. I felt incredible afterwards and slept like a baby. Arthur, you are the man!
I love this little gem and hope it and Arthur stick around for a VERY long time.
Best Place for Massage in LA – I went there to get a massage. My shoulders and back were hurting. After I got a massage from Paula. She made me feel a lot better, I felt great afterwards and so relaxed. I really recommend this place and Paula. I believe other staff members are good too. They were very nice the whole time I was there.
The BEST!! – About a year ago, I started developing low back tightness due to teaching 5 indoor cycling classes a week, to help with my problem, my Chiropractor suggested that I do Thai Massage a couple of times a month. So after receiving my directive from my doctor, I started my quest to find the best place for massage.
I've found many good places throughout Los Angeles and believe when I say I found many good places, but now that I found Thai Classic Massage my hunt for the best Thai massage is over.
My first time at Thai Classic Massage I had Arthur as my massage therapist and I got to tell you, he did such an amazing job that I've amped up the number of massages from 2x a month to once a week; I can't get enough of this guy.
Arthur's touch is strong but not painful, he's intuitive and he's focused. A massage by him is therapeutic and relaxing. Many times during my massage with him, I felt like I was melting away.
I highly recommend Thai Classic Massage, its a hidden treat in Hollywood.
What a treat! – Thai Classic in Hollywood never lets me down! Both Arthur and Paula are truly phenomenal healers. They are warm, intuitive and gifted. I am grateful beyond measure for their talents. Not only does my body feel better, but my mental and emotional perspective shifts as well. THANK YOU THAI CLASSIC!!!!
A pure necessity! – Thai Classic has quickly become a medical necessity in my life. I go about once a month for very deep tissue massage. I generally use Arthur and he knows immediately how to get to the root of the problem. Because of Arthur I have been able to stop seeing my Chiropractor and use deep tissue instead. I have seen more results with Thai Classic than I have with my Chiro.
Shopped around 'til I found the best – I recently discovered Thai massage and have fallen in love with it. It's not always relaxing, but I feel fantastic afterwards. I checked out several Thai massages places and like Thai Classic the best! And as at least one other person has said on here ... Arthur is the best. He's professional, intuitive and does amazing things. The massage studio is affordable so I can see him regularly. How lucky am I?!
Arthur is the best – If you want to get a deep tissue massage, then treat yourself to Arthur! You will leave relaxed and want to come back often.
The Best Massage I've EVER Had!!! – They have tables as well as traditional floor massage.
I just love the people who work there! I've been going for years when I'm in town! I can't say enough about this place!
WOW. Thai Classic is the absolute best. Ask for Annie***** – Thai Classic is in a little strip center on Hollywood just north of Melrose. I have been going their for two years and
I have never had a bad massage. I like deep tissue but they are capable of providing a wide range of treatments.
Be sure to make clear what degree of pressure you like and I know that you will be happy. My legs and hips get really tight but after a Thai Classic Massage I feel 100% better. Ask for Annie and enjoy a great massage.
