Blind massage and foot massage places ala Taipei Times, Ian Bartholomew:
15. Te Chang Blind massage
The old town, like most old towns in cities around the world, is also a bit of a red-light district. Signs for massage parlors line the main streets, and are even more numerous in the alleys. Places offering massage, as opposed to sexual services, are sometimes hard to distinguish, but a good rule-of-thumb is to look out for the blind masseuse symbol. No. 46 Ninghsia Road is worth a try. This is quality massage, but the venue is less than salubrious. Cost: NT$700 for an hour's workover. Tel: 2556-3299; available between around 10am and 2am.
16. Sheng Kuang Fang Traditional Therapy Center
If the appearance of modernity and correct hygiene practices is important to you, then Sheng Kuang Fang might be a better choice. The center, with its glass exterior and no-shoes-please wooden floor specializes in foot massage. Sit in first-class airline seats and have the white-coated staff get to work on your feet. You'll feel better for it. Prices start at NT$550 for a simple foot massage.
13 Chongqing N. Rd., Section 2, tel: 2559-0606. 10am to midnight.
