Sawadee kha! My name is Kae, and I'm the owner of Wanida Thai Spa.
Like many Thais, I love massage and spa treatments.
I have been interested in Thai massage my whole life and have both received and given lots of treatments - in everyday life as well as a professional spa therapist at the well regarded Thai Square Spa in Covent Gardens here in London.
To complement my life-long learnings, I have also received formal training - most notably from the legendary Wat Pho
