Wow, just exactly the sort of deep tissue and range of motion Massage I have always been looking for. I am HIGHLY recommending this service. I am 6'2" tall, 250 pounds, Peng is all of 5 feet tall and weighs 100 pounds wringing wet. Se was the first therapist I had to ask to ease up just a bit! I wish I could afford this therapy every day! Absolutely sensational!
I have a back injury that dates back to Jan 2000. That's when I started going to massage therapists because regular medical doctors had no viable suggestions to relieve my pain.
I have been to more than 100 masseuses in quite a few different countries.
Until I went to Thailand last year, I thought that I knew everything about massage therapy. How wrong I was. After returning from Thailand I searched out Thai trained therapists. I found one in NY and one in Utah. Than I found Issan Thai Massage in my back yard. Sunny and Peng are truly the best trained therapists I have ever had the pleasure to experience. The more times they treat you the better they know your problems and can focus their attentions on what ales you most. They incorporate massage therapy,
physical therapy and even chiropractic during their sessions. Their treatment will increase your range of motion and reduce pain at the same time. They are simply magical.
I've been a client of Issan Thai Massage for approximately two years, and they continue to help me eliminate all of my body aches and pains through deep tissue/muscle manipulation and stretching. The two practitioners, Sunny and Peng, are very professional and are constantly working on trigger points and/or stretching to release your tension. This is simply the best deep tissue massage I've ever experienced and they are able to cover every part of the body in one hour. In the beginning it will take several sessions for your body to get used to the stretching. You will be very pleased with the experience, so give your body a treat.
Best of the best massage – I've been a going to Issan Thai Massage for almost 2 years and I continue to be amazed with the skills of both the therapists there. Recently I completed a home improvement project and was sore all over from all the bending and lifting. Went to my regularly scheduled massage appointment the next day. I remember slowly walking in the door as each step reminded me of the aches and pains. I never mentioned the sore spots during my massage. After an hour massage, I walked out pain free. Amazing! I have no idea how they know and I certainly can't figure out how what they do works so well but... they are the absolutely best.
I have never felt this good each day as their massage techniques actually do help heal and then maintain a healthy body.
I do suggest you do some internet research on traditional Thai massage before you go. Then visit Issan Thai Massage (appointment required). I suggest the research as the Thai massage is nothing like the typical spa experience. I promise you will also be amazed.
A real "Professional Traditional Thai Massage" – A friend of mine from LA was adamant about me getting a Thai Yoga Massage from ISSAN THAI MASSAGE for pain that I suffer in the philadelphia area, we've tried a few places around town. The first one, we volunteered as guinea pigs for a class and it was an intro for me. Second one was just a complete waste of money. I'm not going to write a bad review about the guy, but make sure you ask people where and how they learned Thai Yoga Massage.
Sunny and Peng (sisters) at Issan Thai Massage are masters and are from Thailand and trained there at Wat Po. I've been to Sunny (my friend goes to Peng) now twice and I am so grateful to have found her. Each time I leave, I feel she is my savior. This is not a relaxing massage - this is a massage to really work your pain issues out.
I wouldn't call this a spa. They work out of a home. It's pretty basic, and the price is right, ($40 first time then $60hr) but that is not what is important. They are both extremely talented and have been doing Thai Yoga Massage for a very long time. They also know all about Reflexology (foot massage). Sunny noticed the first time that I had some nasal congestion and she did this little thing on my big toes and I thought to myself, "Yeah, ok, this is just silly..." But, as we were leaving, I noticed that I could breath through my nose! Wow!
After my first visit - 2 days later - I felt great! After my visit today (now that she knows me a little better), I was in that Massage Haze big time and honestly came home and crashed out. Do yourself a favor and learn about Thai Yoga Massage and then come check Issan Thai Massage out. I am extremely grateful to have found them when I had pretty much given up on finding the real deal. I've had many massages in my lifetime due to my profession and arthritis in my neck and this has been the best experience pretty much.

Best therapeutic massage in the area – Issan Thai Massage is definitely the best massage in the area!!!! The place is very clean and Sunny and Peng are very pleasant and professional. I have tried other massage services, but I have never experienced a massage like this. It's more like going to a chiropractor, not just a body rub. Both of these young ladies are certified Thai massage therapist and are very knowledgeable of the human body. Without a doubt, the best therapeutic massage in the area.
I would recommend this place to everyone,
Incredible Combo of Massage and Stretching – There are two highly skilled massage therapists, Sunny and Peng, who combine massage and stretching in an experience that is extremely therapeutic. As a world-class Olympic Weightlifter, I stress my muscles to a degree that few can match. I consider it part of my training to get a treatment each week from one of the young ladies at Issan Thai. I also utilize Chinese massage, but consider Thai massage superior. I highly recommend this business!
BigMike, Thank you so much, it means so much to the girls for those kind words!
