Massage therapy is an ancient medical practise. The skin is the largest organ in the human body, endowed with multiple nerve endings. Ancient therapists realised that massage effectively invigorates soft tissue and helps to achieve relaxation. This knowledge is entrenched in Vietnamese culture, with all variations of massage therapy available in Hanoi. Whether you seek Vietnamese traditional, Thai, Swedish, deep tissue or four-hands massage, you can find it in Hanoi.
A massage can be a soothing touch to the perpetual chaos of Hanoi. Most of the city's massage therapy centres and spas are set in beautiful and relaxed environments that take a little bit of the sting out of the frenetic pace of life in Hanoi. Prices vary depending on duration of treatment. Men who seek massage services should be upfront about personal boundaries as even a seemingly innocuous neck and shoulder rub could morph into something risque and undesired!
