Massage, Spas and Fitness

A guide to Phnom Penh massage, spas and fitness

Massage for health and relaxation is a time-honored tradition throughout Southeast Asia and Cambodia also has its own distinctive traditions in massage therapy. Phnom Penh has several massage parlors catering to visitors, many concentrated in tourist areas such as Sisowath Quay Blvd along the riverfront and the Boeung Keng Kang 1 area. Reflexology, Khmer, Thai, and Japanese massage styles, medicinal and herbal massage are all available.

In recent years, boutique spas have become quite popular, aimed primarily at ladies and couples and offering massage, spa and salon services in a refined, tranquil, indulgent atmosphere. Most spas offer a full range of services including sauna, steam, jacuzzi, massage, aromatherapy, beauty treatments, wraps, scrubs, packages and a generally pampered experience in a gracious environment. Several spas are located in the Boeung Keng Kang 1 area and many of the major hotels have in-house luxury spas. Some spas also offer hair salons, manicure, pedicure, make-up and other salon services.
