Happy Buddha

My wife loves massages. Yesterday I decided to join her at her favorite new spot in Temecula, Happy Buddha. Happy Buddha is located in the KMart shopping center, sort of near Aaron Brothers.

Happy Buddha bills itself as a reflexology, foot spa but it is so much more. For thirty five dollars you get a whole bunch of fixing. About an hour's work. Since I have been having heel problems with my right foot lately I thought I would give it a shot.

You walk in to the clean and nicely decorated foot spa and are seated in a reclining chair and offered a cup of unsweetened chinese herb tea. The manager handed me a reflexology chart that showed all of the locations on the foor and their corresponding organs on the human body.

A large chinese woman came over with a bucket of herbs and warm water and we started soaking my feet. I first got a scalp massage, then a neck and shoulder massage, fairly deep. From kneading to light pummeling. Then she started working my feet and calves. Ended with more whole body work.

I was blown away by the skill level of this woman. As good as any western massage in memory. Amazing amount of work for the money. Happy Buddha!
