Blind massage is one of the few job opportunities for the blind and visually impaired in Vietnam. An estimated 90%+ of the blind and visually impaired community in Vietnam is unemployed. The general public often associated the blind just being capable for massage, handicraft and playing music. If there are blind massage places offering work,it is often in low-end parlors with low income, about US$3.00 per 60-minute-treatment. The blind are often exposed to physical and sexual abuse. There are tipping issues. There is high social stigma, society’s prejudice against massage as a form of prostitution disguised.
We like to tackle the issues by creating professional and personal development for the team of blind and visually impaired staff. We add high value to blind massage. By experiencing our services we transform the negative to a positive image of blind massage, and reduce the social stigma & increase the social awareness. We add the herbal bath spa treatment from the Red Dao ethnic minority from Northern Vietnam to keep the Red Dao culture and traditions alive. Besides traditional massage services medical massage will be available as well.
