Chinese massage

8 08 2011

Since I left Perth 4.5 years ago, I haven’t had a regular massage. And for a person who works at a computer all day, every day, this is not good. My neck, shoulders, and back take a bit of a hammering.

So I was intrigued when I noticed that a Chinese massage place had opened up shop in what would have to be the tiniest shop in my local shopping centre. They only opened a couple of weeks ago, and today I thought I’d check out the sign in their window.

Well, checking out the sign became walking in and having the most amazing neck and shoulder massage I think I’ve ever had! 15 minutes for $15 (normal price $20).

I’ll be back. At that price for that service, perhaps once a week.

Interestingly, they are open 9 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week, which provides plenty of opportunities and no excuses for not having a regular massage. They are a walk-in, cash-only place too — no bookings, no EFTPOS/credit cards. And you can’t swing a cat in the shop, but they’ve managed to set up two curtained off treatment ‘rooms’.

The lady that did my massage had *limited* English language skills. But boy, could she knead my muscles and joints and pressure points into submission! She asked if I wanted hard or soft — I chose hard as I used to have deep tissue massages when I lived in Perth. I had lots of hurty points, which is no surprise seeing as though I haven’t had a massage in ages.

I don’t know if these gals are licensed or not or if have the requisite diplomas from the massage industry people, but having had a 15-minute sample of their ability, that’s not an issue for me! My back is thanking my masseur too.
