Fancy massage machines will never be able to mimic the warmth and skill of a human touch – don’t we all live for that total-body sense of relief when a masseuse hits a particularly deep pressure point on our feet? Self-care has never been more important than it is this year, so here are eight massage parlours to step into for a deeply therapeutic foot massage that’ll blow your socks off.
My Foot Reflexology
My Foot Reflexology has come a long way from its humble beginnings in a 250 square feet shop in Midpoint Orchard with only 4 therapists. Its team, comprised of disabled individuals, has garnered plenty of media attention and developed a loyal customer base over the years. Working the leg from knee to foot to regulate blood circulation, their masseuses are known to be friendly and extremely skilled in their services.

This self-proclaimed “hidden gem” is not quite so hidden anymore; in its almost ten years of operation, it has delighted many Singaporeans and tourists with its excellent treatment.

My Happy Feet
Thirty minutes at My Happy Feet is all you need to isolate from the world and relieve all that pain in your feet.

Another cosy spot on the list is Nimble/Knead, popularised by their playful shipping container spa experience. Once you’re assigned to your very own container, the therapists begin working their magic that gradually slips you into a blissful daze. Their Foot For Thought service sees a relaxing foot salt soak prior to the massage and warm cup of ginger tea for afters.
Foot massages start from: S$42 (60 mins)
Nimble/Knead is located at 66 Eng Watt St, Tiong Bahru Estate, #01-28, Singapore 160066, p. +65 6438 3933. Open daily 11am – 10pm.
