Very strong massage that's really effective for muscle tension if you can take it.

Excellent. I keep going back. I don't know what I'd do workout it. Really great for my reccuring back tension.

I had a Thai yoga massage at Arokaya four days ago and still feel much better for it. It's the perfect combination of massage, stretching and chiropractic treatment. Highly recommended for anyone with serious muscle stiffness.

One word - amazing!! Friendly and knowledgable staff. Welcomed and my needs discussed then member of staff reccomended for what I wanted! Had an hour long deep tissue from Cherie who was fantastic only issue was wishing I'd booked a longer treatment! Can not reccomended highly enough will defiantly go back.

Venue: Reception area was clean and tidy but did smell musky/ damp. The massage room wasn’t particular spacious, had enough space for a massage bed and just enough space for the masseuse to work.

Treatment: Booked in for a 1hr deep tissue massage. Before starting massage work, I highlighted to the masseuse that my shoulders and neck were areas I wished to focus more on.

The treatment received did not feel like a deep tissue massage (definitely different to ones you get from sports therapists), it felt more like a variation of a Thai massage less physical manipulations. Very little time was spent on my problem areas, until I reminded the masseuse where my problems lay by which point it was too late. The massage itself was pretty good, however sadly it wasn’t the treatment I came for.

The ambience of treatment rooms could be improved, I appreciate it is a Thai massage spa but the music being played during the treatment didn’t help with relaxing the mind.

Overall: I appreciate long term muscular problems will require further work and I was open minded on returning back for future treatments, however sadly due to my experience I will look elsewhere for treatment.

The atmosphere of Arokaya makes it feel like you've stepped into a little piece of Thailand in Chorlton.
We were greeted immediately upon entering and sat down on a sofa in the waiting area for no longer than 2 minutes before being taken into the treatment room.
I was in a room that catered for two people having treatments at the same time; which meant my friend and I were able to enjoy the experience together. We both agree that the massage itself was incredibly relaxing and the lady giving the treatment was very good at changing pressure upon request and managed to work out a particularly nasty knot on my upper back! The background music all added to the illusion of being back in Thailand. Afterwards we were given a refreshing glass of water!
The treatment was one of the most relaxing treatments I have had, rivalling the Thai massage I had when travelling in Thailand recently will definitely be returning and would highly recommend to others!

Great massage, calm and very well priced. Will be returning, although booking directly with the spa for the best rates.

I've had Swedish and Ayudervic massages before but never a Thai massage. Thought I'd give it a try so booked a 1 hour Traditional Whole Body Thai Oil massage at Arokaya. The treatment room was dimly lit with aromatherapy oils and beautiful ornate satin sheets on the massage couch. My massage therapist enquired about how mush pressure I like and if there were any particular areas I wanted her to focus on. She tailored the massage to my preferences throughout. If you've never had a Thai massage before then be prepared for something a bit different. I was placed in various postures and had my joints stretched out which seemed a bit bizarre to me at first but felt really nice. Every single part of the body get attention from toes to face. I've never had my back clicked before and was a bit apprehensive at first but oh my it felt good! My only criticism is that the room could have been slightly warmer but despite this I felt the experience overall was excellent and very good value for money. I will definitely be going back for another one!

Highly recommended, will be going back again soon. The owner made us feel incredibly welcome and kindly offered us a nice pot of rare massage tea from Thailand and even a few of his stories of his travels.
