One common indulgence in Asia is going for a foot massage. There are numerous places offering this service – from a simple common room with several lounge chairs, to high-end luxury spa establishments offering air-conditioned private rooms that can accommodate an individual or a group, complete with an in suite washroom and television. One recently-opened spa in Xiamen is the Bokent Health Club on Hexiang West 2nd Road. A 90-minute foot massage costs 168RMB or $27 – and this includes a lunch or dinner buffet! The service starts off with a hot foot bath with herbs in a wood-lined pail for 15 to 20 minutes, while your back and shoulders are massaged. Then the focus for the remainder of the time will be on your feet — heels, ankle, arch and toes. The session ends  with cupping – a Chinese therapy involving heated glass cups applied to the skin along the meridian of the foot to create suction to stimulate the flow of energy. A totally relaxing and decadent experience!
