Set in a charming and tranquil courtyard house set back off Wuyuan Lu, Yu Massage's quality treatments at bargain prices mean that they're incredibly popular and booking is essential. It's worth the effort though, the massages stay true to the acupressure principles of a traditional Chinese tuina massage (100RMB/hour) - without the brute force and pain we've experienced at other places.
They also offer an excellent four hands oil massage (316RMB/hour,388RMB/90 mins) which leaves you feeling rejuvenated and luxurious and foot massages that sooth weary feet.
The lower prices mean you don't get a large ensuite room to yourself as in some of the large spa chains, but you do get soft beds, sweet red date tea at the start and end of your massage and blankets to curl up under during a foot massage. All of which make Yu Massage an absolute bargain.
