A good massage, hot stones and back stretches with your head upside down. Highly recommended for people with physical difficulties and anyone in general.

P'Nasad and Leo shop
Come to Sweet P'Nasad for a real Isan experience.This is a very good and thorough massage, where she get every little muscle in your body a good run down! P'Nasad herself is a lovely woman working together with P'Leo who also does massages. Their spot on the corner of Ananda yoga and Louie's seafood restaurant is ideal for the Yoga students living just there and for many people just on the coast line there. Running from Wok Tum and Hin Kong to Sri Thanu there are only her and Leo! P'Nasad is a very caring being and if she see that you need extra help here or there she will give it without asking for further donations! She will work with you as you need it and not how you can afford it. Which is maybe also why she and Leo make the day by the beach by Happy Beach bungalows, always full of tourists even in the low seasons, doing day massages! This is a beautiful spot to have a massage in, on the bounty beach surrounded by white sand and in the shadow.
Whether you are on the beach in Sri Thanu or by the coast near Hin Kong you can find P'Nasad and Leo. Both of them with magical hands and a proper training from Isan. By evening time they will both be back in the own spot by Ananda, Louie's sister shop, Alcove, the French delicate food space and Louie's seafood restaurant. Just in the butter hole there you find their little massage parlor. With room for two at the time, so don't be shy to bring a friend and enjoy the massage together.
