Guasha (or Scratching Therapy) is an ancient healing technique used in China, stimulating your skin to help treat fever, chill, cough, nausea, to name a few. When a doctor practices Guasha, he or she uses jade or horn scrapers to scratch the back, arms, or other parts of the body to relieve the blood vessels. With the temperature dropping in Beijing, Guasha treatment has become more popular with the locals.
This Cactus Pedicure City in the Sanyuan Bridge area offers excellent Guasha services, with several experienced Guasha doctors. Their services only cost RMB 20, which is a bargain in Beijing. The environment and the service are still great, though.
As a pedicure salon, Cactus also offers a wide variety of pedicure services. The prices are also very good for its location, ranging from RMB 48 / 70m to RMB 68 / 70m.
The shop assistants speak a little English, and have no problem catering to foreign travelers.
