“Where the Locals go!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We really wanted massages during our time in Hong Kong but did not want to go to a Luxurious Day Spa at one of the 5 Star Hotels (not that we don't love these kind of massages at times, but we really wanted an authentic Chinese Massage experience!) We had done a private walking tour that day and asked our Guide to finish our tour by leading us to the place that she goes for massages. It was on the 15th Floor of a building near Central MTR Station which we would never have found on our own. The name suggests that they only do Foot Massage but this is definitely not the case. They have packages that you can choose from with Full Body Massage and a session of Reflexology. The massage therapists are all chinese and often conduct conversations while doing the massage (no Enya or relaxation music playing here!) but the massage is so intense and therapeutic that listening to them speak in their local tongue actually enhances the experience. Once the body massage is complete you are then taken to the lounge area that is full of leather recliners where they conduct the Reflexology. You are served a cup of delicious Rose Tea and given warm heat pads behind your back and around your neck and then wrapped in blankets! It is so nurturing and relaxing that my husband fell asleep and started snoring! The prices are so affordable that we went back 2 days later for another 90 minute session! We paid $140AUD ($1,000HKD) total for a 95 minute session for us both!!! Given that the wages are so low for the locals we also tipped each therapist $100HKD (which is approx $13AUD) and they were so excited and grateful! Definitely worth finding this place. You won't regret it.
