“Fantastic Chinese massage and reflexology”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

I am a regular here and every time I come I kick myself for leaving so much time between visits. The staff here are generally excellent. The setting is relaxing and calm, very zen! The standard service is the reflexology foot massage. It starts with a foot bath and shoulder and neck massages, then on to the feet - this is not the relaxing, western style but is intense and effective. You feel like you're floating on air afterwards but it is quite full n during the process. They also do a fabulous full body massage and this is my favourite - again, this is not for the faint hearted unless you ask for it to be. Tell the therapist up front what sort of pressure you like - be clear, many are working hard to improve their English, most but not all are native Mandarin speakers. Deep tissue is intense and usually through the sheet/towel and without oil, oil massage is less intense. I like a combination. If it's too intense tell them, if it's not firm enough tell them. They aim to please and do a very good job of it. They also have a stone spa and hot stone massage. The first is like a sauna, you lie on the hot stone beds in a warm room - no therapist and it is a good lead in to massage if you're stiff or sore. The second is what you would expect and is blissful. As well as the Atrium branch, there is a branch in Newmarket and in Takapuna. They do fabulous discounts for pre-paid treatments, the more you prepay the higher the discount (20-30%).
