Shiatsu Excellence at KSL

We all love a good massage to relax and revive our broken bodies from the non-stop kiting.

The story of our massage room is also unique and interesting. Initially, we experimented with many options, from Ayurveda to local and foreign therapists.

However, it was around 2018 when we came across a very special organization that employs visually impaired persons in Sri Lanka – Thushre Talking Hands. We partnered with them and therapists were given to Kitesurfing Lanka.


Around 2023, we mutually agreed to work with just 1 therapist on a full time basis – Joseph who hails from the East of Sri Lanka. He lost his vision during the civil war and comes from very humble background. Joseph has since served KSL with love and attention and we have also decided to work on an equal (or even slight more – in favour of him) profit share basis.



  • The therapy helps many chronic and acute problems such as headache, back pain and fatigue, or may be taken for relaxation and stress relief.
  • Acupressure massages are provided through a cotton cloth. No oils are used and there is no need to undress.
  • Joseph has high sensitivity to touch and are expertly trained by a Japanese Master.
  • Our work provides opportunity, self-respect and dignity for previously unemployed visually impaired Sri Lankans. All profits are shared equally.
