Chinese Foot and Body Massage
The tour guide told us that foot and body massages are cheap and good in Wuxi, and brought us to one of the massage centres. The whole massage lasted for about 1 hour 40 minutes, and cost 120 RMB.
We were told that female customers should get a male masseuse, and vice versa for the male customers. This is based on the Yin-Yang theory (female are "yin", and male are "yang". Thus getting a man to massage a woman would balance the yin and the yang in the body).
The session started off with a foot massage. We soaked our feet into a tub of hot herbal mixture for about 10-15 minutes. The masseuse then proceeded to massage each foot. After about 40 minutes, we were then taken to another room for the body massage.
Customers will be fully clothed during traditional Chinese body massages. After the massage, we felt really good and refreshed.
