Zen Massage Opens New Location on Fuxing Xi Lu

Offering 30% discount until October 31

Between hectic work schedules, long commutes and the constant fear of being hit by motorcycles, most Shanghai residents are stressed more often than not. Fully aware of this, the people behind Zen Massage have opened a fourth location in order to help even more city dwellers find peace.


Set inside a quaint lane house on Fuxing Lu, the space is consistent with the brand’s “zen” concept, with a small garden and stone pathway leading to the entrance. Inside, dim lighting and candles set the mood.



The Massage


The menu is simple, offering Chinese massages, aroma therapy and foot reflexology. We went with the recommended Zen Signature Massage (RMB268/60 minutes, RMB398/90 minutes), combining oil with Eastern pressure therapy.


The treatment starts after selecting an essential oil blend, all of which are touted to have different therapeutic effects; we chose jasmine both for its floral scent and promised ability to increase our skin’s resistance to wrinkles. Beginning with our feet and legs, our therapist pressed the oil firmly into our skin. Using long, fluid motions, she asked us if the pressure was okay, not knowing we were more than used to traditional Chinese massages.


For the next 90 minutes our bodies were kneaded and muscles were smoothed - even our stomachs were gently rubbed. Coupled with the soft piano music and the dull hum of motorbikes - this is Fuxing Lu, after all - we may or may not have fallen asleep.





We left feeling relaxed, skin soft and smelling of flowers even after a hot towel wash. For those looking to achieve a similar state of bliss, they’re offering a 30% discount through October 31.
