If authenticity and expertise are parts of your personal criteria, we think you should consider the Thai Massage Specialist.

This place caught our eye because their head masseuse, June, studied at the school of Thai Massage Association and Wat Pho Massage School in Thailand.

After finding relief in Thai massages that treated her sciatica, she then went on her journey to become a therapist and teacher of Thai Therapy.

Now, her Thai massage clinic has an array of authentic treatments such as Hot Stone Thai Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Prenatal Massage, and more.

We appreciate the wide selection of treatments, all of which have reasonable prices considering June’s expertise in the field.

Among all June’s treatments, her most popular ones include the Authentic Thai Massage, which uses gentle pressure to relieve tension and knots in your muscles and joints.

Another fan favorite would be the Deep Tissue Massage. Since this treatment is meant for deep relaxation and tension relief, June tailors all your sessions according to your body’s needs.

Their Senior Citizen Therapies definitely caught our eye. This treatment is designed for elderly individuals to help increase their flexibility and mobility and improve their general wellbeing.

Many of June’s clients that we’ve gotten in touch with commended her for helping ease the pain of their sports injuries. They also claimed that after a few sessions, they felt completely better.

However, it may be a cause for concern for some that they only have two massage therapists on their team. This may be an issue especially if they’re fully booked because of their popularity.

Even so, we have yet to hear word of any appointment delays or issues regarding their small team.

We also think it’s worth highlighting that they’re open daily and as late as 8 pm from Monday to Sunday. We think this is a great convenience as it’ll come in handy to unwind after a long day’s work.


  • Open daily and until late
  • Masseuse trained in Thailand
  • Offers Senior Citizen Therapies
  • Offers prenatal and postnatal massages

Gmax Massage was established and is run by Gerard Tobin, a qualified sports therapist and holistic massage therapist.

A member of the Irish Massage Therapists Association (IMTA), Gerard’s massages are meant to soothe and relax tension in the muscles and relieve aches and pains as well as introduce relaxation on a psychological level, too.

According to his past clients that we’ve talked to, they’re pleased with the quality of service. On top of that, they were impressed with Gerard’s skills and expertise.

His most popular treatment is his Sports Massage, which is often used by athletic people for preparation, maintenance, or recovery from injuries or aches.

On top of that, his Full Body Holistic Massage is also a favorite of his clients. Here, you can expect to feel completely revitalized as Gerard works the knots on your entire body.

Unfortunately, they don’t have online booking, so you’ll have to do things old-school and give them a ring to schedule an appointment or pop in.

On a brighter note, they accept cash and card as payments. They also offer gift vouchers upon request, too. 

Did we mention that if you have a policy with Irish Life Health Insurance, you can claim up to €50 rebate on your massage treatments? We think this little touch will definitely go a long way for those with active policies.


  • Open daily and until late
  • Offers physical therapy treatments
  • Accepts cash and card payments 
  • Up to €50 for those with Irish Health Insurance


  • Small team

Thai Well Being caught our attention for their array of massage treatments. They offer traditional Thai massages, hot oil massages, oriental massages, and even sports massages.

Hence, if you’re on the lookout for a one-stop-shop, you may want to check out Thai Well Being.

Aside from variation, another thing that caught our eye was their loving clientele. Particularly, many of their clients that we’ve gotten in touch with had nothing but praises for the spa.

Namely, they raved about the Deep Tissue Massage specifically. Here, Thai Well Being focuses on a certain problem area to alleviate any pain or tension.

This is particularly popular with individuals who need injury rehabilitation, chronic muscle pain, or even have trouble sleeping.

Aside from that, their other most popular treatment is the Thai Hot Oil Healing Massage. This uses hot oil aromatherapy to induce relaxation and blood circulation while working on relieving tension.

We’re happy that clients also mentioned the masseuses’ attention to detail, particularly that they really get in there to work on any knots or tense areas.

To add to their list of positives, they’re open daily and as late as 8 pm on Mondays to Saturdays. We think this is quite convenient if you’re pretty busy throughout the day and would like a relaxing massage to cap off the night.

We were quite bummed that they don’t have online booking. So, you’ll have to either give them a ring or message them on their Facebook page here.

We also think it’s worth mentioning that they accept walk-ins, too. Even so, advanced reservations are preferred since you’ll have a confirmed appointment.


  • Open daily and until late
  • Gift vouchers available 
  • Accepts walk-ins
  • Offers sports massages


  • No online booking
