If you need something to sooth and relax your aching muscles, look no further. Lei Yeow at Oriental Body Works offers the most brilliant, relaxing yet rejuvenating deep tissue Thai massage that I have ever had.
Prices are extremely good for London at £30 for 30 minutes, £48 for 60 minutes or £70 for 90 minutes.
At the moment, Lei is based in Virgin Active Wandsworth's beauty salon but from May, he will be on Old York Road in Wandsworth in his own salon there. Not only will his salon offer massage but other beauty treatments too, including waxing, facials and nails. A full list of treatments can be found here.
The massages are carried out in a friendly environment. I booked for an hour but was in there for an hour and 15 minutes at no extra cost. Lei really takes time over your treatment and he gives you his full undivided attention. Each massage is tailor made to the individual as he sat with me at the beginning and listened about my aches and pains before starting on my massage.
You can read all about the benefits of the different massages on Lei's websie but I personally came away feeling extremely relaxed and less heavy headed and my circulation felt much better. For a good week or so after I sill felt more relaxed and my muscles felt much less knotted together.
Lei makes you feel so relaxed and safe in his environment, so if you have never tried a massage before but don't know where to go or where to start, try Lei, it is completely worth it and you will go away feeling amazing.
Lei's massages can be booked as regularly or irregularly as you like and it helps that he works Saturdays and evenings. If you have a certain pain or issue that needs sorting, you can book in sessions with Lei so that he will work on you until you are sorted, or just head down to see him for half hour, an hour or 90 minutes of pure relaxation.
For any other treatments other than massage, you can contact Lei's partner, Mee, here
