I'm only days away from moving to Xi'an and can't wait!
I had a Thai massage here in England yesterday and realised how much I need a massage sometimes to loosen up. When I visited a friend in Wuxi he took me to a great massage place that had really comfy rooms, hot water foot baths before the massage, and then a great long massage. If I wanted I could order tea and food etc.
I was wondering if there was anything like this in Xi'an? Ideally one that's not inside a hotel (I'm not sure why this puts me off). For safety's sake, I'll add that when I say "massage" I mean "actual massage", no pink lights please! :-D
Any places you can recommend for a good Chinese style massage would be great. I'll be living near the Changan Road area south of the walled city.
