This was part of a massage package. It all sounded very ‘safe’. My brother and I decided to try this exotic sounding package together. Setting knees on fire was only tip of the iceberg.
The menu of the palour was nicely translated by Google translate. *LOL* It was a good thing that I could read Chinese. I took the “Fine Foot” package, which includes 80 minutes foot massage, send fire and lymphatic drainage.
Clearly, the ‘send fire’ had my attention. Fire treatment sounded totally up my rally. Weird thing though, I lived in Shanghai for 8 years and never came across this treatment before. Got to give it a try, right?
This place was clearly a total winner. They offered gigantic disposable shorts for comfort.The foot massage was pretty standard.
What came up next was just wrong…This was the lymphatic drainage. She put a candle in my ear and massage my neck / upper back. I don’t even know how to describe this sensation. It’s like having something making a hissing sound in my ear, with the imminent flame thread close to my hair?
It was time to get ‘send fire’.Ironically, it did not feel bad. It was just intensely warm? That went on for about 3min? I’m not sure. I was besides myself and my brother was laughing his head off.I didn’t really understand the point of this exercise. She did explain that it supposed to have helped the body to release ‘cold air’? It was a fabulous choice for sibling bonding time. It’s a winner. I’m glad that I’ve done it, but I won’t do it again 😛
Want to see my first knife point Chinese style pedicure? Click the below. This was filmed back in the days when I first moved to China. I laugh at myself now *LOL* It’s a series of 3 videos. I do not know how to link up videos 😛
Where was I?
This was in Guangzhou. Many massage parlours offer similar package.
*I must have lost their card. Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the place.
