“I’ve been going to Thai Wellness for quite some time. Initially I was experiencing lower back pain, later on I struggled with a frozen shoulder. Pranee and her team, Natcha and Maya are all well schooled in getting at and alleviating the pain. In my case it helped me to get back on the basketball and volleyball courts as well as the golf course. Thai Wellness is a serene, peaceful relaxing spa. You’ll be very happy if you choose to visit. I love it!” -Brooks H
