Relax with a massage expertly given by blind Cambodian masseurs to help members of the blind community benefit from an independent life.
What to experience ?
Seeing Hands Massage is the perfect way to wind down after sightseeing on a hot humid day. Blind masseurs have been trained in the art of massage and can relax and refresh your body with an hour of soothing treatment. Shiatsu massage – which focuses on pressure points – is available, or choose anma massage which helps to relax the body and the mind. There is also the option of a traditional foot massage.
They provide one of the best value for money massages in Cambodia and you help to ensure blind people make an independent living. Many of the masseurs have earned diplomas and certificates in massage from overseas institutes in Japan and Singapore.
Seeing Hands Massage has been a great success and there are currently several branches in Phnom Penh, as well as branches in popular tourist cities around the country. You can find Seeing Hands in Siem Reap, Battambang and Sihanoukville.
How does it help ?
Seeing Hands Massage creates employment for members of Cambodia’s blind community. Without adequate social services in many parts of Cambodia, life for blind people is one long struggle. Seeing Hands Massage offers blind masseurs an independent sustainable income that helps them to lead a relatively normal life. The masseurs can earn a very good salary by Cambodian standards, usually a better monthly wage than for many non-disabled Cambodians.
The Seeing Hands Massage centres are privately run associations, run by successful blind entrepreneurs. The main Phnom Penh centre currently employs 13 blind masseurs and there are more than 25 blind masseurs working with the various projects around the country. There are also a number of sighted support staff to help out with day-to-day administration.
