"It’s always hard when you’re on tour trying to find the right massage place - but these guys are the best! Completely reset my shoulders and neck and I feel brilliant for my crazy Edinburgh Fringe run! I will be back!!!"

"I was in Edinburgh for a month doing shows every night and I really wish I found this clinic at the beginning of my time. I got two massages at the end of my trip and both were amazing! I am new to Thai Massage but have been getting body work done for the last 35 years and am now hooked. What I liked most about this type of massage is that it was very intense during but afterwards I was not at all sore and if anything felt so much lighter and better for performance that day. Kei is the real deal and his years of experience show with the way he delivers the massage. I plan on returning to Edinburgh next year and will set up weekly massages for sure! Kei is professional, kind and consistent. A huge bonus is that Hoyn & Kei are lovely people! Their clinic is clean and in a great location. They were very accommodating with apt availability and even served tea after my massage. Cannot recommend this place any more. Wonderful experience and a rare find nowadays. Go if you can!!"

"Being a professional bagpiper, and constantly using the same muscles for long period and being restricted with uniform, my body becomes tight, particularly around the back area. Shivago have been brilliant relieving this tension with cupping and massage. Highly recommended for all musicians."

"I've had Thai treatments for years ... and also did foundational Thai massage myself. These people are one of the few I'd whole heartly recommend...The setup here is informed by a legitimate lineage and tradition, and the practices authentic.
I require very intense treatments or it not worth the time - and Kei knows what he's doing. That said, they can also be as gentle as a butterfly for new beginners. There's a lovely spiritual social atmosphere to the place as well."

When not running the business, Louise likes to test her mettle by undertaking Arctic expeditions. In 2005 she became the first Scottish woman, in 40 years, to ski across the Greenland ice cap - sled-hauling all provisions across 535 km in 23 days...
" In important element of my preparation has been to counter-balance my training with regular massage, cupping and hot compress treatments. Without the healing hands of practitioners at Shivago Thai Clinic I am sure would not be able to maintain the level of exercise that I do whilst remaining strong and injury-free.
As one of Kei’s regular clients he always knows the ‘right’ treatment to administer and is generous with his advice."
