I love massage, especially after a long day of sightseeing. When I was planning for this Myanmar trip, I also searched for massage parlors near HOOD Hostel. There were many listings on TripAdvisor and Health Blessing was in 6th place, which means it should be pretty good.
After a quick wash-up, I headed outside to take night photographs of Sule Pagoda and to visit one of the massage parlors, Health Blessing.
HOOD Hostel is a little far from Chinatown where Health Blessing was located. It took me about 20 minutes on foot to get there.
Health Blessing is located in a small alley off the main Maha Bandula.
Health Blessing offers everything from facial treatment to body and foot massage. You can also get a manicure and pedicure here.
The first floor is for foot reflexology with comfortable armchairs. The second and third floors have lie-down beds with curtains to ensure privacy.
I opted for a Head, Shoulder and Back Massage which costs K15000. The massage itself was nice but I wish the girl masseur used more strength.
You will be given a cup of warm ginger tea which really warms up your body.
Health Blessing is a nice little massage parlor that provides good massage in a clean and comfortable environment. The prices are reasonable and the women at the counter speaks decent English.
