I am looking for a good massage place anywhere in Central, Admiralty or Wan Chai. It doesn't have to be fancy or upmarket, cheap is good! Just looking for a simple, firm massage: accupressure, deep tissue, etc.
There is this place called Siam Thai Massage on 99 Queen Road East, 1st floor, -tel : 2528 9976, between Hopewell Centre & Pacific Place. (MTR Wanchai / Admiralty)
It's NOT fancy, but it's clean, not expensive (80 dollars for 45 min) and their body massage are better than other more expensive places... they even put things straigt back (aching neck)... and they really stretch your limbs (good after sports, to avoid next day pain)
Their foot massage is ok, but Chinese people might find it a bit on the "soft" side ... which is why i only saw westerners having their foot massaged here.
Their customers for body massage are Cantonese & Westerners.
The diploma (Thai school of massage) of some of the therapists are shown on the wall....
Better call in advance if you plan to go on weekends (like around 6 or 7 on Sundays) as it might be very busy.... if nobody picks up the phone, it means that all is booked (they do not have a front desk to sort out messages)....
The staff is very nice.
Therapists are either woman or man. If, as a woman, you prefer a woman to massage you, better call in advance to ask so ....
Tell us if where you have found great massage place.
In terms of a good, reasonably-priced foot massage, try Happy Foot in Soho/Elgin St I think. We were satisfied with them when we went. They had a good deal...like a 45min foot massage for $138..
Warning about other "cheaper" places: just went to Foot God Reflexology Center (also known as Big Foot Massage) at 149-151 Hennessy Road in Wanchai..we thought we would get a cheap foot massage just b/c we had tired feet..and the flyer said $98. But we made the mistake of NOT confirming/clarifying the price beforehand-dumb of us!-and they charged us $170 per person for 60min :P They were nice/friendly, and the massage was decent. However, its not right to charge a different price than stated on the brochure (all in Chinese, btw) by saying "Oh, that is the appointment price for a 45min massage."
Just watch out and make sure that u are clear about the price u are paying when going to these places!
We did have a positive experience another time: went to a place in TST that gave out a brochure, with the price clearly stated, and it was quite nice. We confirmed-before sitting down for the massage-that the cost would be $90hkd for 45min, and they said yes. And it was not sketchy, just simple and no-frills. If you are looking for a spa experience, this is not the type of place!
Agreed with SOHOSGF that Happy Foot is good.

Book ahead if you want to do more than foot massage.
I have another suggestion in Tsim Sha Tsui, the shop is called Tammy's Spa. I was there last week, and I was given a very decent sweden massage. The place isn't well renovated, it's sort of family business. The price is reasonable, and you could have a wonderful experience.
BTW...it's NOT fancy as well. Address:
Flat D, 4/F,
Kwun fai Building,
8 Granville Building,

I heard that she will be having a week vacation from 8 Mar.
Just finding this thread ... I have a recommendation for a new place in Western.
- it's only 5 minutes from Central by taxi - and the price and quality is excellent.
Actually I'm a satisfied customer, writing this on behalf of the owner - she impressed me enough to want to promote her work. Strong, skillful, and very service oriented. Her attention to detail is shown in the quality of her premises, and is definitely reflected in the massage she gives.
Go to Thai Retreat, on 1f 291 Queen's Rd West. 2882 2396 for booking.

There's a very nice small massage parlour in Soho Caine Road called 'Let's Relax', it's bit smaller than Happy Foot but the decoation and service is great!! Price is even more competitive guess it's probably more higher up the escalators compared to Happy Foot. Details on www.letsrelax.com.hk they usually have promotions.

I am using a therapist called Anthony and hes very good with injuries and professional, but you need to book in advanced as hes not always there. Hope this helps cheers
I tried Bangkok Thai Massage on my way to Coyote on Lockhart Road. The master therapist is a mid-age Thai woman called Janjira. She's very friendly and experienced. I also tried other therapists too. Consistently good massages. Not a fancy or upmarket place, just good & magical hands. Call 25693566 to book first:
