Tuina and the traditional Chinese pedicure

Tuina is a type of Chinese massage which I have experienced in Singapore. But the tuina I had in Shanghai was the most painful massage I have ever experienced. Yet, I made sure I had another before leaving Shanghai. I love painful massages.

I also had a foot massage which was good but what was amazing was the traditional pedicure. No pumice stone or the usual nail clipper used. Instead it was a set of surgical-like tools which in expert hands did not hurt or tickle. In fact I did not feel a thing and my feet felt so much lighter after that. I took photos (before and after) but I do not think it would be good to display my feet here.
