Everyone loves to be pampered. For those of us living in Shenzhen, we're in luck! Shenzhen is a great place to indulge in health and beauty services at a reasonable rate. The guide below offers suggestions on where to spoil yourself in Shenzhen and also uncovers some unique services you may not have known existed. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a lavish treatment; you deserve it!

1) Healthy hands, nails and feetView In Map

Put your best hands and feet forward by treating yourself to a manicure and pedicure. There's no shortage of nail shops in Shenzhen, offering a variety of services for women and men alike. Beyond the traditional manicure and pedicure, additional treatments are available targeting the skin on your hands, feet and ankles. A refreshing herbal foot treatment is sure to soothe after a long day of pounding the pavement. If you're looking to beautify your nails with color, most salons offer traditional OPI nail color. If you want a longer-lasting polish, try the shellac treatment (often called QQ nails in Chinese nail salons). This type of manicure uses special gel polish that is set using UV light and must be removed through a special process at the salon. Next time you're in Coco Park, stop by Yù Zhǐ Huì for more a lavish pampering process. Their English-speaking staff is an added convenience.
