Neck massage

‘If you have a bad neck, you can’t move left and right, or up and down, really sore on your neck. Many people get a block in their neck’, according to doctor Saad. ‘I have to go very gentle with the neck, but don’t worry, I can heal you’.

When you visit doctor Saad for the first time he asks you three questions:

  • Tell me about your neck problem, what is it specifically?
  • When did you get your neck problem?
  • Why did you get this problem?

Your neck is maybe the most delicate part of your body, it holds the heaviest and most important part of your body; your head. Neck problems can be very demoralising, and if you don’t have it fixed you could need an operation. Doctor Saad has helped many people with serious neck problems with his intense deep-tissue massages.

Who is doctor Saad?

Doctor Saad is a blind, medical masseur living in Ko Yao Yai, Thailand.

He has been treating and healing people from all over the world for more than 30 years. His favorite saying is ‘no pain, no gain’, which illustrates his approach; his massages are not directly aimed at being pleasurable, but focused at fixing (chronic) problems that you might have in your body for a long, long time.

He inheritated his healing power from his grandmother, which makes him the 3rd generation healer in his family.

‘My hand is my eye’, according to doctor Saad, ‘and your enery comes to me through my hands and this is how I can feel what I need to do and how I can heal you’.

He has a little private clinic in the middle of Ko Yao, located beautifully in the middle of nature, rice fields and coconut treas.

I had five sessions with Dr. Saad. My legs were holding tension and I had been severely injured by an acupuncturist who pierced my sciatic nerve bundle and caused me excruciating pain for months. In Canada I went to all kinds of therapists but little did they help. In five sessions (the first, very painful!) Dr. Saad gave me back my legs. Thank you Dr. Saad!

Never have I endured so much pain, but thankfully never have I had so much to gain! Thank you for your attentive work, so much more insightful than diagnosis I’ve had in the UK. Watch this space – I will let you know the long term outcome. Best wishes, and see you again for next time I’m in the south of Thailand
