The award-winning Feet Haven is clearly not your everyday spa — it’s tricked out with cool lighting (hanging light bulbs and standing spotlights galore) and quirky furniture. Spacious and cosy, the value-for-money spa is staffed by experienced masseurs who will make your feet feel brand new.

My Foot Reflexology
Soothing foot massages aside, nothing warms the cockles of our hearts like this spa’s social responsibility initiatives – it hires the handicapped as therapists and front line staff. It also trains and employs retrenched older workers, the mentally challenged and deaf mutes. As if that’s not a good enough reason to visit, its affordable massages ($35.50) span 40 minutes and work from the knee to the foot, to encourage blood circulation and relieve tired muscles.

Kenko Reflexology & Fish Spa
This household name offers foot massages ($99 for an hour) that come with mini privacy screens for you to relax in your private space. No time for a fussy pedi? Forget scrubbing or pumice stones – the “little masseurs” at the fish spa ($45) will naturally exfoliate dead skin cells and release tension (warning-the tickling sensations will give you a fit of the giggles).

No fuss, no frills. Established over two decades ago, this foot reflexology centre provides you with traditional healing methods (no fancy foot baths here), reinforced with stronger strokes along the pressure points of the feet. Locating it isn’t hard – outlets are scattered all across the island for easy access to quick recuperation.

The Luxe House
Nestled in the exclusive enclave of Dempsey, The Luxe House stands out as an ultra-luxe spa that specialises in foot therapies. Step into a sublime sanctuary of relaxation – think plush, ornate interiors with lots of velvet and suede – and be transported to someplace blissful with a rich foot bath, infused with herbs, milk and flowers. Then, repair your soles with a thorough foot treatment (choose from traditional acupuncture or intensive rejuvenating foot therapies).

Green Apple Foot Spa
Located in a three-storey conserved shophouse, this spa lets you enjoy a therapeutic foot massage ($33), and a movie or two in a unique 12-seater movie theatre. Shed away any tension or fatigue in your feet as you catch up on the latest blockbusters. A couch potato’s dream!

Hard to believe this is a spa! The quaint, industrial-chic décor of Nimble/Knead in Tiong Bahru reminds us more of a café. Built from shipping containers, its cool use of lighting, chairs made out of wooden crates (don’t worry – you’re not being massaged on them) is great for jaded folks looking for an alternative spa experience. Pop by for an hour’s worth of foot massage ($42) after brunch.

Unlike its brick-and-mortar counterparts, Sole House is a mobile service ready to cart its heavenly healing powers to tired souls at home (great for pregnant mummies with swollen feet) or at events. We’re already swooning at the thought of slipping off our heels after work and dozing off to a fab foot massage in our own home.

Hands + Feet Studio
Hands + Feet Studio isn’t just a spiffy place to get your nails done. Foot massage services here are top-notch, and geared towards improving blood pressure. Head to the Gallery Room – here, therapists work magic on your aching soles as you recline on a plush arm chair with a glossy mag. If you’re really time-strapped, you can even get your manicure fix and massage done at the same time.
Hands + Feet Studio, 44 Siglap Drive, Singapore 456169, p. 6448 7187. Open 11am-11pm daily.
Rule of Thumb
You’re guaranteed total relaxation at Rule of Thumb. While attention seems to only be emphasised on your feet, therapists will skilfully target specific pressure points which are connected to other parts of your body. Its location in the Kampong Glam district is also a major plus in our books – treat yourself to a lavish nasi padang meal nearby before taking a well-deserved nap here.
