Massage Therapy

Postby Nam » 22 Sep 2004, 09:10

Does anyone know of a GOOD massage therapist in the Taipei area?

I've lived here for nearly four years and have yet to find one.
There was one who worked in the local spa, but she packed up and moved to Taizhung.

Most of the local spas and clinics either offer, "relaxing massage" or pressure point therapy. Either of which are practiced by people who have never really had any formal instruction or training.

I've had a few accidents, and so my neck and lower back scream for releaf from time to time.

If you have come across one, please post location or phone number here...

Someone told me that the blind aboriginal poet Mo Naneng 莫那能 (A Neng) does a very good massage. The address of his massage clinic is 2nd Floor, No. 183-1, Section 3, Bade Road 八德路三段183-1號2樓. Telephone 02-25780470

I have met him and I don't think he speaks English.

There are several massage places near where I live (near Minquan West Road MRT). No idea how good they are.

western massage in Taipei

Postby whitetiger » 13 Jan 2007, 08:50

For those of you who would like to suggest a search, save it. Can someone tell me where to get a western massage in Taipei? They must have atleast one place. Not interested in any form of Asian technique. Thanks.

Define Western vs. Asian massage?

I went to the Foot Massage Center last night. You may have noticed their flyers/ads around Taipei. It was highly recommended by a colleague. Really liked it. Will definitely go back.

EDIT:
I finished browsing through their English website and I would agree about their staff's professionalism. Everything about them from when you enter to getting your massage is nicely done - well lit, very clean, clear instructions (to me), very efficient, effective massage. My masseur really seemed to know what he was doing. He would ask me some things every now and then throughout the 60min + massage therapy session. At the end, I felt so much better and this morning I still feel much better too.

Cheap and deep back and shoulder massage

Postby Jialin » 22 Jun 2012, 07:53

Hi. I'm wondering if there are any good places in Taipei to get massage - not foot, but rather back and shoulders. And if there are any decent cheap places. In Mainland China, I know you can find lots of great places that are dirt cheap and give you really, really deep massages. Are there places like this or do you have to pay big bucks?


Thanks in advance for your help.

There are numerous threads on this, which use of the search function will uncover. I'm merging some of them and sending them to Health for a merger with a couple others. Please run a search before starting a new thread, and if you find a thread but it's stale info, please append your post to that thread asking for more up-to-date info. Thanks!

I did do a search and did not find this thread. Also, I feel my question is more specific. Thanks.
