Singapore is already known for being one of South East Asia’s most modern countries; a place where shopping in gleaming malls is almost part of the national psyche and where luxury is really easy to come by. If you fancy some blissful pampering in Singapore, you’re in luck! There are many ways in which you can spoil yourself and give yourself a few little holiday treats …
With a large ethnic Chinese community it is little surprise that reflexology centres can be found in abundance all around the country. Often referred to as a foot massage, reflexology goes far beyond simply massaging you feet. It is an ancient therapy whereby specific pressure points around the body (often on the feet) are targeted to make the whole body healthy and help you to feel great! Pressure is used to stimulate these pressure points, and the reflexologist will probably use a small rounded stick as well as their hands. Most places display a chart of the feet with the pressure points and their corresponding parts of the body; have a look at this – it’s really interesting!
Singapore is home to a plethora of delightful and fancy spas, all offering a wide range of lovely treatments and techniques. Whether you want some serious relaxation, a beauty treatment to make you look and feel like a million dollars, health advice, or something else, you’ll be sure to be able to find exactly what you are looking for amongst the Singaporean spas. Whilst most spas have lists of single treatments that you can book, many also offer special packages for a whole day or a retreat-like stay. You can combine a variety of treatments and really soothe your mind, body, and soul with one of these longer packages. Leave feeling totally refreshed and rejuvenated! Some of Singapore’s excellent spas include Ikeda Spa, Spa Artisan, the Yurt Mongolian Spa, Banyan Tree, Willow Stream Spa, and CHI.
You may also see fish spas in several places – a type of foot treatment that uses real live fish to nibble away at any dry skin on your feet – and there are lots of ways to pamper yourself with some high class retail therapy in one of the many glitzy malls. You could also pamper your taste buds with some outstanding culinary delights in one of Singapore’s world class restaurants.
