Liang Xin Reflexology Centre

Remember the quaint little massage place I mentioned here? :D I finally gotten around to edit the pictures so here it is! :D

This little shop is located at Upper Penang Road, nestled among the shops where we Penangites refer to as "The Garage".



This place promises an "Imperial Chinese touch", and this is what you get! With its traditional Chinese decor down to the traditional Chinese uniforms the staff don, it is hard not to be transported back to China a century ago once you enter the place! :)

My gorgeous friend S chilling at the lovely reception area:



One of the staff there will take your shoes and keep them here:


How cute and practical! :D

Perhaps the part of the building that impressed me the most is the washroom! I'm in love the with the wooden toilet doors! lol! :D



And the super pretty basin! I want one for my own house!! Haha! :D



We opted for their traditional Chinese (Kungfu) massage so we were given loose pyjamas to change into. We were then ushered into the room:



Sorry... it was PITCH DARK in there so that was the best picture i had in my camera! Haha! Like normal massage places, you are instructed to lie down on a thin mattress and let the masseur work their magic! :D

Prior to visiting the place I've had the privilege to chat with the owner of the place. He told me that all their masseurs / masseuses are from China and have been specially trained to know your pressure points and massage them accordingly. I have also been forewarned that after the massage, I would be sore for a day or two after that.

With that in mind, I lay down on the mattress and braced myself for the first "Tui Na" (pressure point) massage in my life. The masseuses we got spoke only Chinese, but they're pretty friendly and chatty so time flew by quickly! As with all Tui Na massages, there were times when the masseuse dug into areas that hurt donkey bollocks and I felt like crying, screaming and cursing the day I was born, but overall it was a pleasant experience. I felt totally relaxed and the knots in my body smoothed out after that, and I remembered mentally scoffing at the owner for his earlier "warning".

After the massage, we were served some fruits and freshly squeezed juice that's really nice! :D



This is me chilling in my funky pyjamas! Haha! :D




Their traditional Chinese massage costs RM53 for 45 minutes, and the same applies to their foot reflexology massage. All in all i find this a fantastic experience, and at that price I won't feel guilty for indulging once or twice a month! :D


ps: Sadly, the owner's "warning" came true. My back was really sore for the next 2 days! Oohh dear!! >.<
