泡腳的幸福感與空虛感 (The Fullness and Emptiness of Foot Spa)

從沒想過在台灣腳底按摩,價錢亦貴,約六百台幣六十分鐘,想了又想,還是不值。在逢甲的星享道酒店內,發現八樓提供免費Foot Spa服務,看到「免費」二字,馬上跑去看看。穿過空中花園,找到Foot Spa室,室內有八個坐位,椅前有個金屬泡腳盆。所謂Foot Spa,原來是泡腳而已。但一場來到,Spa室又空無一人,柔和的晨光照在金屬泡腳盆上,示意它們已預備為我服務。

試好水溫,把雙腳泡入池中,一般莫名的幸福感湧上心頭。邊泡邊想,在家一定沒有閒情逸致,只有旅行才會靜靜地坐下來,享受如此簡單的一池溫水。

水溫漸降,把腳掏出來,那刻總覺欠了些什麼。泡腳後沒有按摩便穿上鞋子,空虛。心想,六百台幣六十分鐘的腳底按摩也算可以接受,旅行嘛,買點快樂算什麼。決定晚上跑到養生館來一個十足Foot Spa,彌補早上的空虛感。

後來,又因為腳底按摩後,總覺欠了些什麼,改天再去來一個全身按摩⋯⋯旅行嘛,買點快樂算什麼。

The Fullness and Emptiness of Foot Spa

I never thought about having a foot massage in Taiwan, the price is high, around 600NT per hour, it just doesn’t seem worth it. Staying at the Insky Hotel in Feng Chia area, I found out there was a free foot spa provided on the 8/F. The word “free” dragged me right up. Passing through the sky garden, we reached the foot spa room. There were eight seats in the room, in front of each was installed a metal sink. The foot spa consisted of just dipping your feet into water. It sounded like a joke, but we were already there. There was no one around, the morning sun rays shined on the sinks and that gave us a sign of “We are ready to serve you”.

After setting up the right water temperature,  I put my feet in. A speechless fullness feeling raised from the bottom of my feet. I knew, I wouldn’t have time or the pleasure to do this at home. Only traveling let me sit calm, enjoying a simple pot of warm water.

The water was getting cold, so I left. I felt something was missing. Putting my shoes on without a foot massage made me feel an emptiness. I thought, 600NT per hour foot massage wasn’t unacceptable. Traveling, it was reasonable to buy happiness. Therefore we decided to go to a Spa house for a proper foot massage, and tried to fill up the emptiness of the morning.

Well, after the foot massage, I felt something was missing again. So we went back there for a body massage another day…traveling, it was reasonable to buy happiness.
