Sawadee Thai Massage in the Hunter region of New South Wales came into being after the owner experienced sustained benefits, both physical and emotional, from regular massage by experienced Thai massage therapists in Australia and abroad.

Having travelled widely throughout Asia and enjoying the massage experience in a range of cultural settings, the techniques used by Thai trained therapists seemed to achieve the best overall outcomes.

Our Hamilton studio first opened as Kornissa’s Thai Massage and Spa in 2009 and is believed to be the first Thai massage business in Newcastle. Today the tradition continues with regular 5 star ratings for the quality of massage offered.

A Sawadee massage is much more than the physical sensation of hand movement across tight muscles. It is a wholistic experience that relaxes and revives the mind and body. Key to the experience is of course the skill and demeanor of the therapist. But we also pay attention to the studio location, its design and decor, the air conditioned rooms, music genres and hygiene practices as well as the oils and lotions used throughout the massage.

Elements of Thai culture and respect for Thai Buddhist traditions are a part our way of making your experience satisfying and enjoyable.

Our therapists are Thai nationals, occasionally supplemented by skilled practitioners from neighbouring countries such as Laos and Vietnam.

Sawadee takes its social responsibility seriously and provides significant financial assistance every year to childhood education and anti-trafficking programs in Thailand. The founder has worked extensively in international aid throughout South-East Asia and remains involved in development work in Thailand, The Philippines and Nepal.
