My favorite place, I spent all the evenings after the treatments.
Alone in a country whose language I did not understand, I found support and assistance on the verge of death. Every evening, I went for a 90-minute reflexology massage and learned Chinese words. The massage was soothing and helped me relieve the pain; it also helped me fall asleep better, despite the severe pains I was suffering from.
The massage in non-touristy China is excellent and incredibly cheap. Elsewhere I would not allow myself a daily massage. A 90-minute massage cost (including a tip not customary in China) was about $ 10. (Today, the price is higher but significantly cheaper than in other countries.)
