Spending a day at the spa might seem like the stuff of dreams when you have a family or are working full-time. Weekends are often spent catching up on the stuff that we didn’t do during the week and it can be really hard to find even a couple of hours to relax. So if you’re short on time (or even cash) try these reflexology and foot spas in Singapore to take the workday blues away.
One of the more purse friendly spas out there, Feet Haven is great for an hour’s massage with an experienced masseuse in comfortable surroundings. The decor is great, with plenty of low-hanging lights, lamps and interesting furniture. An hour will cost around S$42 and it is conveniently located in the Katong area.
This spa is so much more than a place to get your feet rubbed. They have some excellent social initiatives, one of which hires older and handicapped workers as therapists and front of house staff. Doing a lot of work in the local community, massages are extremely affordable, costing only S$35. They usually last 40 minutes and are based on the traditional use of reflexology to relieve tiredness and sluggish legs.
Popular all over Asia, Kenko offers good quality foot massages in your own private space, closed off with privacy curtains. Slightly pricier at S$99 for an hour, but in a more private environment, Kenko has plenty of professional masseurs to work out the kinks. You can also try the fish spa, perfect for ridding your feet of dead skin. Just be prepared to be tickled.
With over twenty years of experience, this reflexology place is less of a spa and more of a no frills centre based on traditional healing methods. You might not get any fancy massages or foot baths, but you can be assured that this is as close to the real thing as possible. There are outlets all over the island and you should be able to walk in without an appointment.
This spa, much like the name suggests, is a powerhouse in the industry of spas. Their specialty is foot therapies and their focus is relaxation. The furniture is extremely comfortable and the interiors are all velvet and suede. Here you will be given a herbal foot bath and you can choose from acupuncture or rejuvenating therapies. Located in Dempsey, The Luxe House is the place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle outside.
Their therapeutic foot massage is one of the cheapest on offer, at S$33 and you can even enjoy a movie at the same time. Green Apple is inside a conserved shophouse and their real selling point is the 12-seater movie theatre where you can enjoy some of the latest movies whilst enjoying a massage. Located on North Bridge Road, Green Apple is perfect for relaxation and some well deserved chill out time.
A hipster’s paradise, this place looks more like a cafe than a spa. The spa is built from old shipping containers, and the lighting, chairs and reception are all quirky cool. If you fancy something different from the typical spa experience, this is the one for you. You can find the spa at the Tiong Bahru Estate.
If you want to get a manicure and a massage at the same time, then this is the place to go. The foot massages are dedicated to improving blood pressure and the masseuses are extremely well-equipped to deal with even the most tired of feet.
Relaxation is the name of the game here. Whilst the masseuse will focus on your feet, they will also focus on other connected pressure points around your body. The location is also excellent, located on Beach Road, perfect for getting a spot of lunch afterwards.
If you want something really traditional, then try this traditional Chinese massage studio. There isn’t quite so much privacy here but if you want your feet kneaded to within an inch of their life, then Ancient Therapy is the place to go. You can have a 15 minute massage here and it is also extremely affordable. Located on Telok Ayer Street, you will leave here feeling like a new person.
