Blind massage

On our last day, I had the opportunity to get a blind massage or a massage preformed by a blind person. Blind people are said to have heightened senses which lead to a better massage.

The man is partially blind, as are many who give blind massages. I lie face down on the table. He starts with my shoulders and moves down my back to my legs and feet. Then I flip and he gives me a head massage. In blind massages, the masseuse focuses on pressure points and does an array of massage techniques on and around pressure points. It was not nearly as relaxing as a spa in America, but nonetheless was one of the best massages I have ever had.
