The signature acupressure treatment at Water’s Edge, Shanghai is the traditional Zhi Ya An Mo, in which a certified therapist first asks what specific bodily difficulties you have. For example, if you have trouble sleeping, she will seek the acupoints in your body that correlate to this. This massage’s physical force is somewhere between a gentle oil massage and a deep tissue athlete’s massage, which is to say it can sometimes be uncomfortable. Therapists may look petite, but they lean their entire body weight into specific finger pressures onto the meridians in your back. Their expert motions stimulate energy spots, efficiently increasing circulation. The result is certainly worth any uncomfortable pressure you feel during the treatment at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa.
