“…passionate about Thai massage”
I was in New York City for a vacation and my body was really hurting. I get a Thai massage at home in California and was thrilled to find Thai Massage -NYC. I love the massages I get at home, but this is clearly better. I could tell that he really understands anatomy and physiology and how the body works. Reinhold is passionate about Thai massage and helping me feel better. Would highly recommend it!
Steven r.
The most helpful massage I’ve ever experienced. I live far from NYC, but will definitely be a customer whenever I am in the area.
Masae s.
Impressive, how he commits to his work and his clients. He is one of the most respected and dedicated Massage therapist I know for more than 10 years. His skills keep improving every time I see him. I highly recommend to everyone!
James G.

Can’t beat what you get for the price. Good strong massage.

“he helped ease the tension”
Reinhold is an amazing massage therapist. Had a 90-minute session after training for and running a 10 miler and he helped ease the tension points and fully stretch my legs, hips and back. Highly recommend.
Michelle t.
“a great experience”
After several days on my feet at a conference, Reinhold took all that away, so I could enjoy my weekend in the city. His space and music are so cool, adding to a great experience. Really wish he would move to Austin!
George b.
“90 minutes of true therapy”
If you are a dancer, an athlete, or just someone who walks, and are looking for a real 90 minutes of true therapy, you must check out Reinhold.
Jennifer D.
“I felt amazingly better the next day”
I am from Alabama and came to New York over the weekend for my cousin’s birthday. I came down with a severe head cold and body aches from exhaustion. At her suggestion, I dragged myself out of bed and went to see Reinhold. His office is modest and simple. He is a man with super strength. He really worked over and stretched every part of my body and have to say I felt amazingly better the next day. I would highly recommend Reinhold and his massage technique. I wish he was in Birmingham Alabama so I could visit more often.
Jeremy r.
“very safe and nurturing”
The Thai Massage session I had with Reinhold is one of the best things I’ve treated myself to in a long time. I told him what was going on with my body and asked him to just do his thing and work intuitively – all I had to do was surrender and breath. Fantastic results – very safe and nurturing – will make this a regular part of my healthcare.
Judi r.
“mind-blowing bodywork”
Thai massage is the best of all therapies I have tried in my life. And Reinhold is a magical therapist. Sometimes I feel like he is dancing with my passive body in his hands. Sometimes I feel like I am being stretched on a rack. Sometimes I feel like his movement is enabling every muscle in my body to relax. It is 90 minutes of mind-blowing bodywork.
Anita l.
“Fantastic results”
As a dancer I wanted to improve my flexibility and widen my range of motion; focusing on high kicks, splits, etc, but also improve general posture and body strength. I heard about Thai Massage from my Yoga instructor, so I “Googled it”. I found Reinhold and since then have been working with him for weekly sessions. I can see enormous improvement. I find it truly amazing how the human body can be ‘talked into’, ‘steered’ into certain movements by the right kind of touch. I feel much stronger and find it remarkable that it happens just by me doing basically nothing except letting my body relax under experienced hands. Don’t be mistaken – it’s not Harry Potter’s ‘touch and go’ kind of magic. It’s much, much slower. But, bottom line; I know for sure that the Thai massage won’t leave my weekly schedule for years. ;-))))
Terry H.
“my spirits were lifted”
Simply the best massage experience I ever had. My flexibility was improved and my spirits were lifted — Reinhold is the best! Can’t wait to go back.
brooklyn d.
“Excellent!”
Highly recommend! if you’ve never had one google it. The therapists are very professional and knowledgeable. Excellent!
Lisa B.
“intuitive”
Reinhold is incredibly intuitive. He knows exactly what to do to fix the aches and pains I get.
Jessica A.
“Fantastic results”
I received a gift certificate for a 90-minute massage. I’ve never had 90 minutes go by so quickly. He did a great job of explaining the process and letting me know how I could get the most of Thai massage. When we got down to it, he was extremely caring with his movements and made extra effort to watch out for my lower back (a problem that currently is no longer a problem). Reinhold has made me an advocate for Thai massage being the best type of massage.
Brandi c.
“passionate”
I purchased a deal to try Reinhold’s Thai Massage and really didn’t know what to expect since I’d never experienced a Thai Style before. After the intake process and discussing my ailments, Reinhold got right to work. He’s definitely passionate about his craft and made me feel at ease immediately. Whenever I had questions about what was happening, I received an answer in layman’s terms. I’ve already recommended his services to my friends and can’t wait to return for a longer massage.

Alexa t.
“truly healing”
What can I say – Reinhold is incredible. He is very experienced and knows so much about the body. Sometimes, it feels like he has 8 hands! A massage with him is truly healing and I left feeling like I was floating. He is just great and I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
Marcial G.
“my shoulder pain was gone”
Before going in for the massage, I had been having terrible shoulder pain for over 4 years. My range of motion was limited. After only ONE session, my shoulder pain was gone and my range of motion was back in full effect. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!!!!!
James s.
“strongly recommend”
In town on business and desperately needed some bodywork. This was only my second Thai massage but it was outstanding.  So much more helpful than traditional deep tissue.  I strongly recommend anyone with physical issues to see Reinhold.  He’s a master.
Mindy c.
“Loved the vibe”
I made a last-minute appt during my trip to NYC after realizing that tight muscles and emotional exhaustion were keeping me from enjoying my vacation and the trekking that I typically love doing around the city. I was beyond happy with the experience! I decided on 90 minutes of therapy and my back, mind, and soul are so thankful that I did! Loved the vibe, the technique, the music, and most of all the beautiful energy Reinhold radiates. Cannot wait for my next trip to the Big Apple and all the wonderful traditions that I love, and grateful to add another to the list- a trip to Thai Massage-NYC.
Sally M.
“floating on air”
I have seen Reinhold twice, for what seems to be a transformational experience for me. I walk in feeling a lot of muscle tension and tightness and walk out floating on air. This feeling lasts for days and my posture is much improved as a result. He is kind and intuitive as well as masterful in his craft. I can’t wait to go back!
Fiona t.
“powerful but gentle”
I loved the service! The massage was unique for me and I would do it again. I placed all my trust in Eric and it was worth it. He has powerful but gentle techniques. When I left, I felt as though I was crackling with energy, and as calm as a pool of water. I will visit again, and you should too.
Katy K.
“He can meet you at your hotel”
It’s a very relaxing experience when done by a talented and well-trained professional who knows Thai massage techniques. Reinhold , who owns Thai Massage (thaimassage-nyc.com) has a lot of training as a massage therapist, plus spent a long time in Thailand learning the detailed techniques of Thai massage. I wanted to have a plan in place to work out some of the “travel aches” after flying to NY for a short visit. Reinhold can meet you at your hotel (which is what I did) or you can go to his office. The massage itself was extraordinary. He set up the massage area in the hotel room (a talent in and of itself, given the small size of the room!) and then we talked a bit about my previous massage experiences and the aches and pains I was having. Thai massage is not always easy – the therapist’s job is to help your body stretch thoroughly, and that requires some work, and may result in some soreness afterwards, especially if your muscles and joints are very tight beforehand. He is not only really knowledgeable and talented, but he also is just an amazingly kind and open-hearted person. I felt very lucky to have the chance to meet him. If I lived in NYC, I would make massage sessions with Reinhold a regular occurrence.
Jeff c.
“Pure satisfaction”
I booked a 90-minute session, and I would *HIGHLY* recommend doing that – it gives Reinhold enough time to really help you stretch out thoroughly and really let your muscles and joints release the tension they may be trying to hold onto. I know he has several clients whom he massages weekly, going to their homes and doing the work. I would love the chance to work with him on that kind of regular basis! For now, though, I will happily content myself with a massage session every time I visit the city! Pure satisfaction. I’ll be back.
Christopher B.
“he understood”
Reinhold was very calm and knowledgeable, and he clearly was able to tell the difference between my muscles’ resisting a stretch at first (and thus he just gently helped me “push through” that resistance) versus my experiencing a painful sensation that wasn’t quite right (in which case he stopped immediately and switched to a different stretch). Because it was so clear that he understood this so well, I trusted him as much in this first session as I trust my regular (non-Thai) massage therapist, whom I’ve been seeing for years.
Dane b.
“strong”
Can’t beat what you get for the price. Good strong massage.
Janet r.
“caring”
Reinhold is professional, caring, and unbelievably effective.
stuart p.
“Fantastic”
Fantastic Thai masseur. Worth every penny.
Durham N.
“you remain fully clothed”
If you are not familiar with Thai massage, the main thing to know is that it’s not like a “regular” Swedish massage. Instead, you remain fully clothed (T-shirt and sweatpants or other soft clothes), and the therapist stretches your body, moving your muscles and joints into positions that help them stretch and release tension and stiffness. It helped relieve all kinds of aches and pains that I had.
David b.
“do your body a favour”
As a bodywork specialist, a Yoga instructor since 1980, and someone who has experience Thai massage in Thailand for over nine years, I can say with authority that the Thai Massage experience I had with Reinhold during my vacation in NYC was first-rate and one of the best I’ve had outside Thailand. I had only budgeted for one massage but after that initial experience, I knew I had to book another session before I left NY so I canceled the Broadway show I was planning to see and treated myself once more. Now days later after my return home to the Turks & Caicos Islands, I’m still feeling the wonderful effects of his treatments. Do yourself and your body a favour, If you’re in NYC, book a session with Reinhold at Thai Massage-NYC, I highly recommend it.
Anita p.

Reinhold is the man! Love him! 🙂

Great treatment – a very strong therapist.

I’m so glad I found Reinhold.
Rachel D.
“Great and fun teacher”
Reinhold is a natural and a master! Highly skilled, strong, and kind. Moves you into different stretches seamlessly and with grace. Great and fun teacher too, in case you’re interested in learning Thai massage. I looked forward to his lessons, with creative descriptions and explanations that enhanced my ability to learn and remember the techniques. I recommend him highly.
Mai K.
“The best part, the results!”
This was my first Thai massage and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the experience was great. It was strenuous, yet comfortable as Reinhold put me at my ease. The best part, the results! My lower back always hurts. ALLWAYS. But as I am writing this, eleven days and a long plane ride later, my back still feels great. If I only had regular access to this massage practice! Definitely worth your time and money, even if you are only in town for a short while.

“Best massage I’ve received in 20 years”
I received an incredibly healing and life-changing massage from Reinhold. I was carrying an incredible amount of muscular tension in my body and I left our session feeling like I was in a whole new body. Reinhold sat with me before the session started and listened attentively to what was going on with my body and then addressed each of the issues I’d outlined one by one. He is a gifted healer and works out of a very cool space in Union Square. Best massage I’ve received in 20 years of weekly massages in NYC. I’ll be seeing him regularly and I’m also interested in booking a class to learn some of his massage techniques with a friend. If you’ve got something going on in your body, this guy can help! Thanks again, Reinhold. Truly a blessing. ;).
Cynthia O.
“an excellent masseur”
I wanted to give a super big shout-out to Reinhold! He’s an excellent masseur who is very intuitive and skillful. Anyone who is going to get bodywork should definitely benefit from these services as he has a true gift!
Oliver R.
” thorough and relaxing”
Suffering from jet lag after a weekend, I decided on a 90-minute session. The massage was excellent. A little stronger than what you get with a Swedish massage but very thorough and relaxing all the same. Will definitely call back next time I have the need.
Mercedes V.
“…lasts for days”
His intuitive, healing, and calming aura immediately melt away the stress. It’s amazing how energized, balanced and loose I feel which c after our sessions. Herb Balls are amazing, as well as his playlists. Highly recommend!
Amy H.
“not easy to find”
My body feels so great and relaxed, but at the same time rejuvenated, after I received a Thai massage from Reinhold. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and skillful. I have been searching for a massage therapist to free my neck and my thoracic spine for a long time, most of the time ending in disappointment. Anyway, it’s not easy to find a great Thai Massage Therapist in NYC. He has great body mechanics which support my body in the position that makes me feel safe so I can let go of my tension and tightness. I highly recommended anyone who has chronic aches and pains or who just needs a GREAT MASSAGE, GO TO REINHOLD. He’ll make you feel like a NEW PERSON.
Katie N.
“intuitive and skilled”
I’ll be back next time I’m in NYC!!. Reinhold really knows his stuff. I’ve experienced Thai massage from numerous practitioners and he is among the best. He’s intuitive and skilled and his years of experience are evident in his work. I walked out and nearly floated to Central Park , every joint in my body free of tension, every muscle free of stress. You can trust that you’ll receive possibly the best ever Thai massage. Highly recommend Reinhold for newbies to this bodywork and to massage veterans who need the maximum release and stretching.
Afwan S.
“I was not disappointed”
I’m no stranger to massages, but this was the first time I’ve had a Thai massage. After reading previous reviews, I was eager to try this new experience and I was not disappointed. Reinhold was the ultimate professional and I felt completely confident in his abilities. He said the beneficial effects would probably last for a few days, but it has been 3 weeks and my nagging knee pain has not returned.
Jennifer W.
“it helped me feel reconnected”
I had never had a Thai massage before and wanted to try something new. I rarely get a massage; when I do I try to select a really knowledgeable practitioner. I was a little nervous because I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Reinhold made me feel completely comfortable. I was hoping for a powerful massage to help me let go of stress, and provide a bit of a detox from a long winter. Well, It was INTENSE, but it helped me feel reconnected and improved my circulation greatly. I had a nice surge of energy afterward, and throughout the next day, My limbs which had been feeling heavy were back to normal. I had a general feeling of happiness. During the massage he was incredibly aware of how far he could stretch without too much pain. It was amazing to me how he could know. He also gave me some helpful suggestions, simple things I can do on my own for balancing my alignment. Reinhold is an extremely talented, caring massage therapist. You will be able to tell that he really loves what he does, and so he does it really well. I wish everyone would give themselves the gift of going to him. It was truly amazing for me.

“Incredible massage”
Comfortable environment with great energy. Incredible massage that ran deep without “day after soreness” of a typical deep tissue massage.
Melissa g.
” custom Thai massages”
Professional and knowledgeable, recommend for those who love custom Thai massages
Matthew G.
“I feel stellar”
Mr. Reinhold is extremely skilled at his craft, and I feel stellar after the appointment. I’m looking forward to working further with him.
Justin I.
“you won’t go back to a regular massage ever again”
Did not know what I was expecting going into the Thai massage. It was my first time. I forgot to wear loose comfortable clothes but my instructor had something clean and comfortable for me to change into. This was a life-changing experience. I’ve never stretched or breathed more deeply in my life. I’ve also never had my abs properly stretched and massaged. So much tension left my body I felt like crying but actually, it manifested itself in laughter that I skipped through my body with all my attention. After the massage and deep stretch session, I felt about 5 pounds lighter and 3 inches taller. It took my pain away and set me up for deep stretching before my next week’s workout. It was truly an out-of-body experience and I would recommend it to everyone. Once you get a Thai massage from Eric Reinhold you won’t go back to a regular massage ever again. Highly recommend. You’re in for a treat and a life-changing experience.
Eric L.
“the real deal”
This man is the real deal. Reinhold is a true professional and his work is excellent. I left the massage with my posture straighter, walking taller, and feeling recharged. I was able to see Reinhold through a KGB deals offer, which made the massage affordable, but I would definitely go back and pay full price. I was surprised by the first review. Although his room is not the spa at Bergdorf’s, it provided all the space that was needed, and I found him easy to talk to. I think he’s great.
Kiki o.
“a beautiful, kind energy”
I love Thai massage, and since the body gets manipulated into various positions, it’s important to me to go to a practitioner that is skilled has good energy, and that I trust. That’s why I see Reinhold for Thai massage. He has a beautiful, kind energy and he’s able to deliver the exact pressure and level of stretch that I want. He’s extremely intuitive and his love for his work comes through in his delivery. I always leave with what feels like a new and rejuvenated body and spirit.
Ross O.
“deep and precise”
I’ve had somewhere between 280 and 300 massages in my life. I’ve mostly sought out a Thai massage, for the deep therapeutic healing it provides. I had a massage with Reinhold. Only 5 minutes into the massage, I knew I was in for an outstanding treatment. Reinhold has a fierce dedication to his practice and his touch was deep and precise. He worked muscular and energetic lines that offered deep tension relief. The music was cool too. It was an eclectic mix, but I found that the songs helped me enter a deep, trance-like state. Reinhold and I spoke for 15 minutes after. He’s been to Thailand many times, has a wonderful wife and home, just outside the city, and is a deeply genuine person. He teaches Thai Massage right here in NYC. Great experience. Thanks Reinhold.
Xiaochen T.
“quickly brings me into a relaxed mode”
I was very sore after 2 days of intense walking in the city (15km per day), so I had a spur-of-the-moment idea to go for a massage. I was so lucky to find the right place! I booked an appointment with Reinhold and he was great. He started by asking a few basic questions which quickly brings me into a relaxed mode. He’s very professional and I felt totally fresh afterward. I would definitely come back again when I visit NYC the next time. Highly recommend this place.
lauren j.
“you will be comfortable”
I make time for a stop here when I’m in NY- Reinhold is professional, a great communicator, and very good at what he does: Thai massage. No other massage compares once your body is gently stretched into positions to relieve pain and tense muscles! And Reinhold is a master: you will be comfortable listening to music and relaxing while he takes over. Highly, highly recommend! Make time for a stop here.
Elizabeth g.
” just what I needed”
What a journey that massage was! Truly EPIC. Eric: Thank you so much for the expertise and care. It was just what I needed. I’ve been longing to find a good Thai massage practitioner in the area, but this was better than good; this was extraordinary. I’ve gotten a lot of bodywork in my life — but you are the new gold standard. I came in with stress and pain and floated out in bliss. I’ll be back!
Allan E.
“With his own touch”
I have been in living in Thailand for a while so I’ve had many Thai massages. It’s honestly rare to get a really good one with someone who actually takes the time to perform it as best as possible. Here it is definitely the case. Really good! With his own touch there to make the atmosphere different but great.
Francis C.
“knowledgeable, caring, professional”
I am very happy to have found Reinhold. I have lower back chronic pain that he was able to address and felt so much better. He is very knowledgeable, caring, professional and you get your money’s worth. I would see him more often if I lived in the city! I get massage on regular basis and Reinhold is really in the very top category. So looking forward to my next session.
Thanks Reinhold!
Hannah f.
” my pain is still gone”
Highly recommend Thai massage- so much better than other massages I’ve gotten. I came in with shoulder pain I had been experiencing for weeks and nothing I did would alleviate the pain. Few days after my Thai massage and my pain is still gone. Great experience.
Mark v.
“no more muscle soreness”
My dancer daughter was very sore from the dance intensive. This technique was new to us but was wonderful to stretch and loosen her tight muscles. She felt it helped tremendously, and had no more muscle soreness the next day! Thank you for your help! It’s exactly what her body wants and needs. Don’t miss out!
Angela P.
“never the same twice”
This Thai massage Helped tremendously with the tightness and soreness in my neck. By the end of the session, I could flex and move with ease. The sequence and approach are never the same twice. Reinhold responds to the body’s pain points. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.
Ariel C.
” I couldn’t stop smiling!”
I had such a wonderful experience at Thai massage NYC. It was my first experience getting a Thai massage and it was better than any massage I’ve ever received. My muscles felt a surge of healing and healthy oxygen flow. I was rejuvenated and completely relaxed after ——I couldn’t stop smiling! I highly recommend this place and I can’t wait for my next appointment.
Vanessa D.
“he knows what the body needs”
I had the luxury of going to get a Thai massage with Reinhold today. I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the mat, the cool decor and the amazing playlist. Beyond that, his technique and skills are very impressive. He took care to do a thorough intake with me to find out if I had any goals for the session and if I had any injuries, etc.–that’s the difference you get with an educated practitioner–they don’t just do what they want to do without input from you. I love the fact that I can be stretched in so many efficient and helpful ways. There’s a sense that he knows what the body needs and doesn’t push the stretches beyond a therapeutic threshold. I felt completely relaxed and happy upon leaving. I need to do this more often, as I think it’s a perfect complement to my yoga regime because it gets me into stretches I can’t do on my own. Everyone needs this!
