Feet First

Undoubtedly the McDonald’s of the Singapore massage world but this place is good, clean and has the most comfortable loungey chairs we’ve found.  They have a fish spa here that is one of the best and is fun to take guests to while you decline and recline for a blissful 30 minute reflex session instead ($33).  They use powder not cream which feels so much nicer…and stops you skidding about in your shoes afterwards.  Not cheap though and a fishy foot encounter will set you back $18 for 15 mins, or $28 for 30 mins.  If you want an undisturbed 30 minute foot massage, steer you guest in to choosing the 15 minute fish spa followed by one of the 20 minute treatments, say a shoulder massage ($28), which means you will finish at almost the same time.  Fish spa enthusiasts have 3 tanks to choose from: small, medium and large.

BTW: All prices exclude GST which does make this much more than it would be in China Town, but it’s definitely cleaner.

Opening Times: 10am-11pm daily

Small, discreet and frequented by a mainly local clientele.  Packages are great val….and you can spend what you’ve saved by going for dinner somewhere nearby afterwards ($280 for 12 foot massages, each lasting 40 mins, which works out as $28 a session).

Opening Times: 10am-8pm Mon-Sat; 10am-7.30pm Sun

Ready, pedi, go.  Book in for a proper, old-fashioned, no-we-don’t-paint-toenails-pedicure from a good, rated chiropodist.  UK trained Rosalie Tio is the best we have found and has been here for 8 years. It’ll cost you anything from $75-$90 depending on the state of your feet, and it’s worth doing every 3 months, as no matter how good your OPI pedi is, they never truly shift that horrible hard heel skin as well as she can.

Opening Times: 9am-5pm Mon-Sat; Closed Sun

The foot reflexology here involves a Chinese herbal hot pack as well as the usual foot soak and shoulder massage.  The best news is that you get to lie down on a proper, clean bed and snooze vs sitting in those nasty and all too prevalent leather recliners.  There are only 2 beds available, so it’s worth booking.  Foot reflexology starts at $45 for 60 minutes.  BTW: Their reflex room is not really geared up with reading lights, so don’t bother bringing your book….sleep instead.  If you are a wimp and prefer more of a foot rub to reflexology, ask for Miriam.  BTW:  Huge problem with live music coming from the neighbouring bar…they start playing every night from about 8.30pm/9pm-11pm.  Make sure you don’t go during these hours!

Opening Times: 11am-11pm daily
