Massage - Good and Affordable?

Postby Europa » 15 Dec 2004, 23:07

Does anyone know where to get a good back massage on the red/green line at a reasonable price? Like nt$600 for an hour or maybe nt$800?

Where is the red/green line?

My wife recently took me to a place on the corner of Civil Blvd. and Fuxing S. Rd for a massage.

I thought it was mostly torture. If it didn't hurt tremendously, it tickled.

The cost was NT$ 800/hour.
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

Have you tried those massage places run by blind people? There is one near CKS MRT, slightly to the left across the road from the cop shop. Closer to the MOS Burger.
Hope that makes sense.... :cool:

Many hospitals have blind massage "therapists" working often in the physio department area. Do a search, I know we discussed this once before.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

If you live in Taipei City the blind massage therapists will come to your hotel or home also, you don't even have to go out.

Americans living in Taiwan CALL your senators and representatives and ask them to repeal FATCA and support residency based taxation (RBT) for Americans living abroad! Writing a letter is useless! FATCA has been implemented and banks will be collecting your information here. In addition renunciation fees are now $2350! Insane!

There are blind people giving massages on the 2nd floor at the Adventist hospital. They're not affiliated to the hospital, if I understood the website correctly. Supposedly, there are also blind people giving massages at Taipei main station somewhere near the ticket counters. Don't know about the prices though.

Does anybody know where to get Thai-style massages in Taipei?

Thanks

They also have blind massagers at Chang Gong hospital on Dunhua, in the room where you queue to pay and collect prescriptions.
