WATCH | We got a massage at a parlor where all the masseurs and masseuses are blind. The Thai Massage Conservation Club has been giving the blind population of Chiang Mai, a city in northern Thailand, an opportunity to work for 25 years.
What is the Thai Massage Conservation Club?
The owner is blind too, and saw this venture as an opportunity for blind people to make a living while taking advantage of the senses they can use. Rather than struggling in other occupations, they can hone their sense of touch.
The Thai Massage Conservation Club has multiple locations around the city, and caters to both locals and tourists. And with hour-long massages ranging from $3 to 4 U.S. dollars, the price can't be beat!
Where? 9 Ratdamri Road, Changpuak, Chiang Mai, Thailand
WATCH | Not all of the massages are this intense!
WATCH | This was a little closer to our experience
