What makes an excellent Chinese massage?
If you have never tried Chinese massage before, you might not know what to expect. To help you have the best possible experience, we suggest keeping an eye out for the following traits:
- Experience. With years of experience under their belts, the best Chinese massage therapists can deliver a comprehensive range of services. They can also help devise a customised treatment plan that targets your specific needs and concerns.
- Relaxing environment. Massages should be relaxing. When you step foot in a Chinese massage salon, you should instantly feel at rest.
- Well priced. Price is always a top priority. Typically, when it comes to massage, you get what you pay for. That being said, be wary of salons that overcharge for their services.
- Convenient location. Many nine-to-fivers use their lunch break as an opportunity to squeeze in some much-needed R and R. If that appeals to you, look for a therapist that’s conveniently located.
