When you go on shopping trips, your entire body basically feels exhausted and your legs in particular hurts like crazy. When that happens, the best thing to do is to either soak in a hot bath or get a massage. When you talk about massages, most people think of Thailand but most of South East Asia countries offer good and very affordable massages and spa. In Kuala Lumpur, we usually like to visit a particular outlet because of the service as well as the price.
Liang Xin Spa is a Chinese styled massage and spa outlet that is located right in the middle of Bukit Bintang and is perfect for those who needs a rest after an entire day of shopping. Not many might know about Liang Xin as it is hidden on the 3rd floor of a rather run down building.
Surprisingly, the spa is still very popular as you can hardly get a slot if you turn up without a booking. Make sure that you call in for a reservations.
The entire spa is decorated in a Chinese style from rose wood furniture to porcelain vases and stools and paintings of Chinese emperors.
The spa itself is huge with many different sections and rooms
The toilet itself tries to induce a spa relaxation feeling with its pebble stones and landscape pictures.
The main section has dimly lit with a very relaxed feel. Each bed is sectioned out with blinds and curtains. The entire spa is very clean and well maintained and there is absolutely no ‘naughty’ business going on here so it is suitable for solo ladies or even families.
Each bed is the size of a super single mattress with semi hard support, a lazing pillow and cushions for each customers to laze around between their treatments.
Each customer will be given a set of loose clothing to change and before each massage starts, blinds will be lowered for your privacy.
For those who are doing oil aromatherapy, full curtains will be brought in for your total privacy.
Every feet massage will start with a basic foot soak.
You will also be served fresh orang juice in a tumbler and fresh fruits
All masseurs are very professional and carry out their sessions in silence with the in between questions to see that their customer is satisfied with the pressure used. Different from Thai massage, Liang Xin uses acupoint massage techniques which is more typical of the Chinese massage.
My visits to Liang Xin always leaves me feeling relaxed and satisfied and most importantly my entire body feels extremely light as all the knots are taken out and my muscles are no longer tensed. My 90 mins body and leg massage was only MYR 120. Unlike Thai massages, tips are not expected at Liang Xin.
