Lotus Massages - Luang Prabang

Lotus Massages

Heavenly massages

I found it by chance and (what a pity!) too late.
In the middle of Sakkarine Road you can find a small shop of massages called "Lotus Massages". Here you can try:
- Feet massage, 3 USD
- Body massage, 6 USD
- Aromatherapy massage, 9 USD

I discovered it on my last night, and tried only the feet massage. You are sit on a "chaise longe" with your feet up. Then the massager sits in front and washes your feet: delicately, strongly, slowly, deeply. Then they wrap your feet in hot towels. Then they start with the right feet: palm oil, fingers massage, sticks massage, finger-by-finger massage... all that during 30-40 minutes! and then the same for the left foot!!

AND at the end you get a "quick" (more than 10 minutes) neck and shoulders massage... all this in a relaxed chill-out atmosphere... you go out of the shop floating!!!

I can't even imagine how the "aromatherapy" massage would be, but have the firm intention to go back and try it some day, LOL
