My sinusitis pain was killing me. The pain persisted even after some medication. However, I refrained myself to give in to antibiotics easily, I'd been taking antibiotics since I was 16.
One night, my wife suggested foot reflexology. And off we went to this massage centre near to my place. At first glance, the ambience of the centre was calming. Dim yellow light with cosy sofa. There came this sifu from China, carrying a wooden pail of warm water with chinese herbs. He guided my feet into the pail and ..... aaaaaah.... that was so comfortable. The soaking took 10 minutes. The sifu dried up my feet with towels and my food message begins.
Indeed it's easy to tell whether these 'sifu' are really well-trained 'sifu'. Minutes after the massage and reflexology began, he started to point out my health problem....... my internal organ... my liver... and then to my sinus problem..
This sifu Xiao Wei had been working in Malaysia for two years but still unable to speak nor understand English. As he continue his massage, a few officers from the local municipal council came in. Kononnyer nak spot check lah, kot-kot ada aktiviti-aktiviti yang hanky-panky. They talked to the person in-charge, toured the centre, and took some photos before they left. This centre was up to their satisfaction. Clean.
After one hour of relaxing massage, my sinus pain was relieved. RM36 was charged for the service. Cheap ah?
