A new spa that has just opened in Las Vegas is in the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which is located at the entrance of CityCenter.  This 47-story hotel is special because although it is in the center of the gambling world, it is a non-gaming hotel that will allow you to be at the center of the action without being surrounded by a casino. The hotel itself brings spectacular accommodations, superlative dining, and an unparalleled spa. The hotel and spa were designed by the award-winning architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, with contemporary interior design by Adam D. Tihany.

Chinese Foot Massage

Friday, September 25th, 2009

Cfoot-bathhinese foot massage is a very popular massage technique that is also extremely affordable. At the not-so-adventurously named Chinese Foot Massage in Woodland Hills, California you can get a full body massage for an hour for just $25. Even though they refer to it is a foot massage, it is much more than that. They don’t tell you what you are getting and there is no menu of services, but it is well worth the mystery. The treatment begins with a foot bath in a warm mineral soak while the masseuse performs a shoulder massage. You then lie down on a recliner on your back, while you receive a scalp and face massage, and then a full body massage even down to of course – the feet. Chinese Foot Massage is certainly a hole in the wall, and in fact it is just one big room where clients are massaged on their own recliner. However, it is well worth the money given the pressure used during the massage as well as the duration. Clients stay fully clothed in whatever they wore in so dress lightly and causally.

Chinese foot massage originated in China over 5,000 years ago, and its concepts are based on healing by stimulating the acupuncture points based on the principle of reflexology. The treatment combines foot massage pressure points and Chinese herbal medicine. The Chinese believe that when a blockage of blood circulation occurs in the major nerve points, the flow of energy all through out the body is affected. Using this concept, strokes and methods of this foot massage aims to remove the blockage and stimulate the flow of energy. This type of massage is so popular in China now that the Chinese are starting to replace their traditional business meetings with a gathering at the “parlor” instead.


Some of the proposed benefits of Chinese foot massage include:
– Improved circulation in the limbs
– Reduced stiffness and improved flexibility
– Lowered stress and anxiety
– Improved sleep and less headaches
– Heightened immune system
