A perception of blind massage

Staff working at Perception Blind Massage in Bangkok

‘Perception Blind Massage’ is a new massage place concept to Bangkok. The place is providing employment for blind or visually impaired therapists, who demonstrate their unique talent for massage therapy as they are able to fully focus on their sense of touch in a way others cannot.

The owner Savija Pannark Korslund, who is from Denmark and Thailand, opened the place in December 2014 along with the popular Cafe & Bar – Dexter, which is located just downstairs.

“I believe that the fact that all our massage therapists are blind or visually impaired really adds a ‘dimension’ to the concept and the treatment itself,” she says.

“It has long been a belief among many Thais that the loss of one sense increase the sensitivity of the others; I believe that to be true. Also the general ambiance and dimmed lighting at Perception helps our guests to relax completely and leave out any distractions”.

‘Perception Blind Massage’ is located at Sathorn 8, on 2nd and 3rd floor above Dexter Café & Bar. Opening hours is Monday – Sunday: 10:00 am – 10:00 pm
