– Sawasdee Foot Massage, Rytiřská 19, website
From the tinkling fountain to the comfy chairs and the characteristic menthol smell, this place looks authentic but, unfortunately, the foot massage is not. Pain and Porn are just two of the masseuses who might work on you, but ours was Thai Massage Lite. We kept waiting for it to kick in to no avail. The price is 600 CZK for a lacklustre Thai massage. Relaxing, yes, but not therapeutic.

– Thai Fit, Na Poříčí 21 (www.thaifit.cz)
One of the oldest in Prague. The aroma of the adjacent Siam Orchid restaurant adds to the ambience of this great place and inspires you with what to do post massage. Eat! Anyway, the masseuse here was strong and achieved an incredible amount of vertebrae popping: exactly what the neck was in need of. It is calm, quiet and recommended. They also tantalize the senses with herbal, oil, chocolate and lava stone massages, and once you’re limbered up, you can join one of their yoga courses or just lounge a bit longer in the sauna.
