Topic: Best Xiamen Body Massage? 全身按摩?
Hi,

哪里是优秀的全身按摩呢?

I am always in search of best 2 hour full body massage in Xiamen, can others here please share their opinions of where I may find best massage? I run often and the streets of Xiamen tear up my body.

Currently I am a member 3 years @ Bokent - Shoujia Leisure and Health Club.

I do not want special massage, hospital massage, blind massage, massage by old lady or massage from a man.

English speaking is not a requirement but would be an added bonus, in 3 years I have had 2 massages by English speaking technician.

Typical prices are in 150 - 220 rmb range.

Thanks in advance!

I've been searching for the same but not too much luck either. The blind massage place in Wen Zao wasn't really worth it in my opinion, but you don't want that anyway.

I had a decent one from a day spa salon near Xia Da on the corner of the 2 main roads. It was 180rmb but only for the first session, subsequent sessions will be 600rmb which is a bit steep, really. No idea why, and most of my understanding was only through the charades game so I could be mistaken. Great service though and all female staff.

I also had one last year that was 168rmb for an hour. All males but there were some English speakers and I found them quite professionally trained. They seemed pricey at the time, but after searching around I think it's not too bad for the standard. http://www.whatsonxiamen.com/client/jianshengtang/index.php.

There's also a few spa places near the Er Shi BRT that I want to check out next.

I get the feeling the massage parlours in Xiamen are aimed at pampering the super rich. There doesn't seem to be enough 'middle class' demand for mid range ones.

You are not looking for a "special" massage but point out that no old lady nor man should touch you... hmm

I usually go to the massage left of the long distance bus station on the diagonal opposite of BuyNow. It is 60RMB per hour, you can decide between male or female. Everything looks like a hospital.
Still, would also like to try some better places.

Thanks to all for your helpful advice, so far my plan has been I walk up and down every major street in central xiamen for 3 years now and enter every building advertising body massage or showing the characters.

My Xiamen friends come to me when seeking advice for a good massage so my experience and knowledge is above average.

In my travels I have found some really good places, crazy expensive places and some nasty places.

I was paying 90 - 128 RMB for 2 hour massage but prices have risen greatly in the past one year.

@ otto, in USA massage by older lady is often a rip-off, older lady also typically can not perform the techniques required. Man-to-man massage is most often gay - which I am not. The man2man massages I have seen advertised in Xiamen (and USA) are that type. Also if I wanted special massage I would not need to ask here, I have better uses for my hard earned cash but thanks for wondering...

@ Wonderful Google maps shows me this is the place?

Century Sunny Jiankang Leisure Club
322号 Hubin East Road, Siming, Xiamen, Fujian, China

Thanks! I will check it out. Some friends tell me I am crazy and risk serious injury or robbery but so far I have never been harmed. I think the cups have done the most damage so I avoid them. I also find technicians here like to press the eyes or put suction on the ears or grind q-tips on my ear drums - all which totally freak me out.

@ rawr I find many places want me to put up 1000 RMB and become a member to receive 1 massage and others at some small discount, a scam I see more often now.

An added bonus is almost all facilities provide a very tasty free meal and if late I can stay the night at no extra charge, I just need to show my passport.

@Mister Phoenix, the google map is doing a great job for you. That is the right place and enjoy yourself then.

Also, there is another new one opposite the Xiamen Municipal Library. (at Tiyu Road). It is a new big building that offer many kinds of service (i.e KTV, Buffet, Massage, Swimming pool indoor, etc). The massage room is nice and modern. If you can get the library or stop at the bus stop, you can see building right across the street.

I have good experiences (no, not in that way) with a massage parlor at 卧龙晓诚 (WoLongXiaoCheng, BRT next to it). Forgot the name, but it's on the fourth floor in the 太川大楼.
Two-hour massage, free food, tv and music and you can stay for the night for free if you come after 12. It's 229 RMB.

重庆家富富侨足疗,it is very good in my memory in Wuhan, but i have not try it here, maybe one day you can try it. it is not so expensive, around 200-300rmb, 2 hours full body massage, really nice.

and, 国医馆,in wuhan it is also very good, i have not try it here to.but if you have time you maybe try it.it is also not so expensive, maybe 200rmb.

振元堂, Chinese tranditional Therapeutic Massage and Cupping, very good, i had try food massage there, around 50-60 for 1 hour, with relax massage on shouldren, and arms.
you also can try it there.

精功指,smaller and cheaper then 振元堂,but it is also professional ,the Massage technician was get very good training from a famous massage master,so they really good.


these services are both for men and women, but if you are lady, then every nice beauty salon all can offer very good full body massage with Essential oils,pretty nice!
so,
hope you can find a suit one and enjoy the safe and clean massage.

good lucky!

Any updates on a good massage place in Xiamen? I'm looking for one at the moment too. A relaxed massage with a reasonable price would be enough. No happy ending or any nerve breaking therapeutical massage, please.

Not sure if this topic is still alive, but I'll share my opinion anyway.

I've had a splendid back massage done at 335 Xiahe Rd, Thai-Thai massage. This girl made my spine sing, I'm going back today.

Price around 250 RMB for 100 minutes, well worth it in my opinion.
