I went with my two little brothers to experience a blind massage for the first time. We three were not pleased by the experience. One of the masseuses that was massaging my brother was talking non stop to the others and I had to tell her to quiet after 30 minutes. My brother told me later on that after my complaint she pushed even harder than she was already doing!!! He is 14 years old that’s ridiculous. I had to tell my masseuse over 10 times to be softer, and then she was way too soft... very unprofessional and unexperienced. Furthermore she almost did not touch my legs and was too focused on my shoulders so that I have pain now in this area. Its the very first time that I write a negative comment anywhere on internet but I had to write this one because I want to warn people before going there. For sure not all the masseurs are like that (I wish so) but those were ours. 3 bad reviews from us!

Excellent ratio between quality and price. I got massaged by masseur that had sight disability. I was ticklish while receiving foot massage so he adjusted pressure and movements according to my responces. I appreviate that a lot. After foot massage, I got whole body massage. Interesfing that the massage was received through a sheet while I was completely dressed up.
Both massages were given in common room full of other customers. Comming from Europe, I found this strange at first, but then I got used to it very quickly. I just minded my own business as everyone else and it was fine. If you want to receive nice massage and support people with sight dissabilities, feel free to visit this place.

Traditional Chinese massage, rooms aren't private but these people really know what they are doing! It's worth every penny!

Been coming here for years and seeing the neighborhood transform, i.e. Across the street a whole stretch of Shanxi South has been boarded up for more than a year when it had been full of vibrant local coffee
shops, local non-chain clothing and daily usage lifestyle shops, florist, restaurants, ... now probably sits empty across from the Cultural Center waiting for the next big development-- thus we are so lucky that the Double Rainbow still thrives.

Came here early afternoon on a Tuesday and the place was about 3/4 full of usual locals. Some snoring away on the massage table as they are being worked on.

Since time was pressing I opted for the quick soak and foot massage for 85¥. Soak for 10 min and a guy comes by and start on my feet for the next 55+ minutes.

English or other language access is really unnecessary after your choice of which massage to pay for. You choose, they tell you which room and the blind masseuse works on you. No tips necessary. You leave refreshed! What more to ask for?!

3 friends, tourists, visited for 68 min body massage. Place is clean, efficient, and excellent massage. We all left feeling relaxed and with knots well seen to.

Got foot and body massages. The foot massage started great, but then he just kept working the same spot over and over. I'm sure he was just working out kinks but it wasn't very enjoyable so I thought the body would be better. Boy was I wrong. Not only did he not put in strength, he just used his elbow and put on pressure 75% of the time. And when he used his thumb, he barely applies pressure. Absolutely terrible massage man. Glad I don't have to tip. Shoulda have just had my wife give me a massage and pay her. If your guy is a man about 45-50 ND somewhat balding, don't get this guy! I've had 100x better in shenzhen. Colossal lyrics disappointed. Plus he kept burping and yawning. Ugh.

I visited this establishment today prior to reading any reviews and loved it. Great 60-min massage for less than $20. I look forward to going there again for a foot massage.

This place is ideal for those who like proper Chinese massage at EXCELLENT value ... Deep deep tissue massage... I think my moaning only encouraged him to keep working out the knots ... Even my eyebrows got a massage ... Who knew that was even possible ??....

Per our guidebook's recommendation, my husband and I stopped into this massage place, located in the former French Concession on S. Shanxi Road. He opted for the 90-minutes deep tissue massage, while I did the 75-minutes foot massage.

He had so enjoyed his that we immediately made another appointment to return. When we retuned two days later, I also did the 90-minutes massage. We both agreed they did a thorough job and got to our kinks and knots, but their one-hand-at-a-time-method got tedious at times. Be prepared for no privacy and wear comfortable clothes. While you can strip down as much as you want in the communal room, no one seems to do so and all massages that I can see were worked on while fully clothed.

This is my go to place in Shanghai for a full body massage or a foot rub. I've been going here for many years and always had the best experience. The place is operated by blind massage therapists. They open at noon each day (except MON at 2pm) and go till midnite. Most massages are clocked at 45 min. The rates may change but probably still under 60 rmb for 45 min., what a steal! And no tips.

There are 3 rooms and after paying up front they will instruct you where to go (after you choose which massage and how long). Once in the room, choose a table and put your belongings in a small box under the table. Don't be expecting privacy since each room will probably occupy at least anywhere from 10 people for the big room to 5 for the smaller two rooms. Don't be expecting zen like music either, the closest they have is Miles Davis that is on a repeated loop from "Kind of Blue", which is great by me. Everything is clean. This is massage in China where everything is pretty communal. The therapist will be talking to each other while you are under the sheet. It is up to you how much you want to strip down, i.e. how shy you are.

You can tell the therapist or else guide their hand to where you hurt most, but they will still probably start on your neck region and shoulders to start loosening you up before going to where it hurts. I have been here by myself, with my kid, with friends, my wife...everyone come out losey goosey and ready to take on the city.

TIP: try not to go during the weekends since the locals come in drove and are booked solid -- so you know it's good. If you prefer more privacy and conditions and expectations in the US, try Dragonfly.
