Grand opening of Mr. Q Massage and Beauty

Festive balloons, bouquets of flowers and a crowd of happy friends marked the opening day of Mr. Q Massage and Beauty, and marked the achievement of a lifetime dream for owner June Wongmalee. June’s whole family was there for opening day, including son, Que, for whom the business is named. June stated that she has wanted to own this type of business since she was a teenager, and she chose her location carefully.

Located on Chotana Road across from the Lanna Golf Course, Mr. Q is now open for business.
Located across from Lanna Golf Course on Chotana Road near several shops selling golf equipment, the massage and beauty business will cater to the needs of sportsmen and women as well as the general public. June herself is an avid golfer, and knows well the value of a good massage at the end of 18 holes.
On opening day, guests toured the beauty shop and observed its new equipment, then went upstairs to see the rooms set aside and furnished for traditional Thai massage. Each of the fourteen massage beds is attractively made up, with flowers complimenting each room. Large and comfortable chairs downstairs are for foot massages, and guests took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy relaxing and refreshing foot massages after the ribbon cutting. In addition to various types of massages, the beauty shop features a full range of hair care and beauty services including Bobbi Brown makeup and skin care products. Mr. Q is the only shop in Chiang Mai offering this famous line of beauty products, which are sold in the U.S. at upscale stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom.
