The Last Beijing Foot Massage

Published on February 3, 2008

As a final farewell to Beijing, Patrick, Joe and I decided to get a proper Beijing foot massage, complete with unlimited food and a DVD of our choice. We picked up My Blueberry Nights and went for the daytime 30% discount. This is what I’d been missing out on the entire time I was working!

This was Patrick’s first time getting a foot massage in China. The masseuse seemed to know immediately when she touched his feet! According to Chinese medicine, you can learn everything about someone’e health through their feet. Joe was in “perfect health” while Patrick and I had “restless sleep and bad digestion.” Uh huh.

Did I mention the unlimited free food, featuring massage mainstays like sausages and eggs?

    It was called Tai Pan and I think it cost about 67RMB, but that may have been the daytime special!
