BUSINESS: China Healing Massage
When the stressors of everyday life, whether it’s a tough day at the office or an afternoon packed-full of the kids’ activities, start to impact one’s physical comfort, China Healing Massage in Edmond is there to help provide pain relief, relaxation and promote overall wellness.
Manager Tracy Lu opened the Edmond store after watching her parents provide six successful years of service to the Oklahoma City community. “My parents moved to Oklahoma in 2005 because of the great opportunities here and opened their first massage parlor in Penn Square Mall. After I graduated with a business economics degree from the University of (California) Irvine, I moved here to help my parents start this new business,” said Lu.
China Healing Massage hires only licensed, experienced and professional massage therapists with strong work ethics. “Our massage parlor is legitimate massage therapy, not a stereotypical Chinese massage parlor,” said Lu.
Services offered by China Healing Massage include familiar therapies such as full body, couple and pregnancy massages. Other unique services include their ancient Chinese acupressure techniques, reflexology foot massages and fumigation therapy.
Acupressure treatment is noninvasive, gentle pressure applied to specific meridian points on the body. “American people work hard and need massages that relieve tension and pressure from head to toe,” said Lu.
Their reflexology foot massages combine natural Chinese herbs with techniques that, according to the Reflexology Association of Canada, “relieve tension, improve circulation and promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.” Lu echoes these claims. “My mom has insomnia and reflexology has improved her sleep quality. We highly recommend it for stress relief.”
Similar to the benefits of a sauna, fumigation therapy for your feet sweats out toxins from your body. “We have a customer that uses this therapy weekly because he believes it helps the arthritis in his knees. My dad uses it nightly to help with his arthritis. Arthritis is a chronic disease. This therapy has relieved his pain and he’s able to walk,” said Lu.
China Healing Massage offers membership cards with no joining fees or contracts. Members also receive a free massage after their tenth massage.
Lu shared, “In our six years in Penn Square we haven’t had one customer complaint. If you’re not satisfied with our massage, you can get a refund. We believe everyone deserves a great massage.”
