"For travellers staying at the Shangri La Rasa Sayang or The Golden Sands Resort and wish to have a beach massage that is very affordable casual and on the beach shaded from the sun while enjoying the sea breeze, then Foo & Family Massage is excellent. Our family have travelled to Penang staying at the Shangri La and have especially looked forward to daily massages for the whole family from Foo & Family Massage."
A traditional Chinese massage is a relief for the mind and body, but who is the best of the masseurs on the beautiful beach of Batu Ferringhi? Where can you find the best masseur? Since I have been in Malaysia since 1988, I have some insight into it after all these years.
The best masseur is the son of the early deceased, legendary Foo. He was the son of a Chinese doctor and went into the jungle with his father to find all kinds of medicinal herbs. He then prescribed this to his patients.
Many are healed. After the death of the old Chinese doctor, his son continued the work and handed his knowledge back to his son Tommy.
I have seen many masseurs come and go in those years, but the Foo family has always remained.
Tommy Foo can be found on the beach in front of the Golden Sands, near the Baywatch Tower of Batu Ferringhi. Together with his wife Amy and cousin, they have a successful business. They work
from early morning to late evening. In addition to massaging, you also receive advice about your body. If you have any complaints, share them with Tommy or Amy, his wife. They can give you advice or herbs on complaints of the liver, kidney, diabetes or high blood pressure. You have to make an appointment in advance with Tommy Foo, because it is repeatedly busy with him. Ask him at what time you can come by and you are welcome at that time. Do not go to the other masseurs, because they have little experience and change with the seasons. They are also not nearly as good. You can see that in the few customers they have.
The first time I came to Tommy Foo, I had a terrible pain in my back. He advised me to come by every day for 10
minutes massage. I did that and the pain disappeared that week. Back in the Netherlands the pain came back and I appeared to have a hernia. Yet I had a painless vacation there in Malaysia.
There is a lot of competition on the beach and this ensures that the price of the massage remains low. For one hour of massage you pay RM60 (around 12 Euro).
You do not have to bring towels or something.
If you tell about this Malaysia site, he will no doubt tell stories about me and Tommy will show you some pictures.
