The massage itself was alright, but the ambience and staff was not very satisfactory.

Oh dear! I am not one for complaining, or writing reviews at all, let alone bad ones, but felt I had to review the Thai massage I had today. It is a shame because the lady was very sweet, and the place was perfectly pleasant.
She didn't ask me anything about myself, whether I had any injuries or illnesses, or what I wanted out of the massage. Is that unusual? Not sure, but I've always been asked before. My main issue is that the treatment I had didn't resemble a Thai massage in any way. I had to strip completely and spent the first hour face down on a massage bed (this was a 1.5 hr massage). All previous Thai massages I've had were fully clothed, laying on a futon on the floor - lots of cushions involved for both me and the therapist. The lady used oil throughout, and used the flat of her hand the WHOLE time, It was just constant rubbing in long strokes, identical each time, over and over and over. There was absolutely no manipulation of limbs, or variation of pressure, speed or areas to work on. At one stage I started counting the number of times she swept her hand over exactly the same place and got to about sixty before giving up (I was bored and not at all sleepy - I'm not a pedantic or fussy person). I was really hoping that she would vary her pressure, use elbows or thumbs, work on a tiny specific area, press and hold - anything! But what could I say? - Can you do it better? It was kind of strange really, especially as the place is called Traditional Thai Massage at Thai Massage Central! Have I got it all wrong? Is it me?

Superb service. I went in with severe pain in my neck and shoulder. The next day I felt so much better. Thank you so much!

Let me just preface that I had a great massage here the week before, by a man. I get massages regularly for work, and have had many Thai massages over the years in many international locales. I don't know if this girl was a sub, but it was haphazard replication of what a massage should be, without the knowledge of proper alignment or anatomy. I knew when we began that this would be a below average massage, but I didn't think that I would leave worse off than I started and with a wonky shoulder.We had agreed to do a partial head/face massage for my allergies, and it was laughable how terrible it was. At the end, she asked if I would like the "stretching" and I had to tell her to stop when she jammed her knee awkwardly on one side of my side and pulled. (Usually the assisted stretches are my favorite part!) I told her to stop and that we could be finished. On my way out, I asked what the name of of the fabulous guy I had the first time, and she said that he didn't work there regularly, only when someone requested a male masseur. I would come back if I knew that I could book with him again, but it's not worth the risk of me having to get another massage just to fix the damage done of this most recent one. I'll find somewhere else!

The deep tissue massage was good, she worked a lot on my issue. But unfortunately this resulted in me not getting the foot reflexology that I was really looking forward too. I guess communication was a bit difficult. Might come back another time to try it out.

I had a Ashiatsu Thai massage and wanted ultra deep pressure on my back. Nancy listened to all my requests and worked on the stubborn knots. It was a massage I had been looking for for a while and I am glad I finally found where to get it from!

If you are looking for a real "spot-on" massage, this is the place. The massage I received there was done with perfect fluency and varying pressure. The therapist also would adjust based on the condition of muscles without me having to specify.
The venue is not optimal if you are looking for a spa-style of ambiance, but the price you pay for is also quite reasonable, if not a bargain, comparing to the other similar service in London.

I had a two hour massage and the price was really reasonable for the amount of time. It was very relaxing, however, as some people have also mentioned previously, there is noise coming from upstairs. I think the people upstairs must use a staff room downstairs as you can hear their conversation when they are there. Other than that, the place was good.

Great massage. The lady managed to work out all the knots in my back. Not a relaxing massage but she did a great job and I could feel the difference instantly. I will definitely be going back.

The London Massage Centre is a room underneath an extremely noisy hairdressers. The staff make no attempt keep the environment peaceful, so the massage is ruined by loud music, banging on the stairs, shreiking laughfter and loud voices. The lady giving the massage was good, I assume she pays them rent. If I was her I'd find another venue.
