Shanana, Hangzhou…felt better but not “in heavens”

Like many Asian countries it is quite easy to find a massage in China. I had no clue what to expect at this place (which was recommended by the hotel concierge), but it turned out cleaner and more professional than I expected. This tranquil retreat was legit, not a hint of anything improper.

As for the massage itself, I’d rate it a B. I was looking for Chinese massage- Tuina – but didn’t get that. If you are expecting something like a chiropractic massage, then this is not for you. The pressure is perfect. Hard enough to feel like it’s doing some good but not so hard that I need something to bite on to stop myself from crying out. But try as she might, she couldn’t zoom into the knots in my lower back and thus failed to loosen them. I definitely felt better after the massage, but not “in heavens”.

The best thing – their English is not very good so you never run the chance of getting a CHATTY massage therapist (my pet peeve).This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
