Feel like a King (“Royal Palace” @ Newton Rd) February 3, 2009

How do you define feeling like a King in Singapore? In this era and society, cash is King. However it might not necessary that the more you spend, the more you will be treated like a King.

It is the feeling of respect and importance that makes one wants to go back to Royal Palace again for a massage. The service is indeed excellent. For example, they address you by your name from the reception front at the beginning till the end when you leave the door. It is this type of service that makes you feel like a VIP.

This was the first time that I was at Royal Palace, however I brought a friend along. He is a regular and mentioned that there were constant new faces and that meant different massage experiences he gets. Having changed into our bathing suit, we were soon treated to a luxurious feeling of massage.

In a private ambience, my masseuse greeted me and asked for my preferences and if I had any specified points I wish to heal and be massaged. I had a game of squash the day before and was feeling an ache over some muscle parts. Her gentle and petite looks were naturally deceiving as I soon found out her strength in performing her skills. It was a good rub from neck to toe that lasted for an hour.

The session ended pretty much on the dot and my friend came out the same time as I did. We left feeling a sense of lightness on our body, but that’s before being served with warm tea and our respective masseuse taking the effort in seeking reviews on their massage skills.

Relax after Shopping (“Pissa Health Centre” @ Cuppage Plaza) January 27, 2009

We do understand that Orchard is one of the most expensive area in Singapore. Having a massage there can cost you quite a lot naturally. That’s what most will think of. But there’s this outlet at Cuppage Plaza where it only costs $35 for 45mins. On average, massage therapy in Singapore will cost approximately $1.00 per minute of time spent or even less, whether it can be an actual full body massage at a clinic, centre or spa. And that is equivalent to about $50 for 50 minutes of relaxation. While many are willing to spend $50 to dine out buy coffee at famous outlets weekly… why not spend it on something more worthwhile for relaxation?

At the Pissa Health Centre, the cosy ambience combines well with the array of facilities in provides. A theatre room and coffee lounge in the setting. The steam and sauna at a corner. The masseuse does her charming job of work on your body as you rest well on the comfortable bed. She presses on the body with adequate pressure and held on for a moment before releasing with a soft rub.

The experience at this outlet was indeed a de-stressing one. A recommended outlet.

A Chinatown experience (“Oriental Pearl Healthcare Centre” @ Pagoda St) January 26, 2009

We have noticed quite a number of massage and spa centres are sprucing up in Singapore along the Chinatown area. This could possibly due to the tourism trade catering and targeting many foreigners who frequent Chinatown. It was some time ago that I visited one outlet at Pagoda St.

Upon stepping into the outlet, the ambience was nice with a relaxing atmosphere. The massage therapist allocated to me used a variety of techniques to promote healing and relaxation, as well as to promote greater flexibility and range of motion. I could feel the after-effect of the outcome in which it helps to improve blood circulation, decrease pain and inflammation, helps to relax the muscles, and makes you feel better.

The masseuse engaged my body for a 90minute session, something longer than the usual one hour. It is encourage often to people after their massage session to drink a cup of hot tea. And this was naturally served at this outlet, warm green jasmine tea.

Overall, the experience was a great one which ended with a 15-minute chat with my masseuse. The warmth of the service given can indeed be felt.

This is comfy (“Ning Beauty” @ Indus Road”) January 20, 2009

I would say the massage standards in Singapore is pretty much comparable to many neighbouring countries. Although we do understand that there are many who swears by going to Indonesia or Thailand for a cheap massage for a lengthy period of time, it is here too, that the prices aren’t really that steep.

At Ning Beauty, it is pegged at $30 for an hour’s session. With a skillful masseuse in the privacy of your individual room, you can get a pretty good deal too. I was greeted in an amicable manner by my receiving masseuse and thought she was possibly in an ideal mood. We briefly chatted for a moment and I got to know that she was from Malaysia.

Her knuckles kneaded past my body and hands. As she applied the same method on my shoulders, she began adding massage oil and brushed downwards off my shoulders. I informed her of my aching hands as previously I had carried some heavy materials while moving house for my relatives. She focused on my pair of sore hands and pounded lightly with karate chops in rhythm.

The whole process ended slightly more than an hour into time and it feels absolutely good. I thank my masseuse and she sees me off to the door front. A simple relaxing place to be.

A Heavenly Process (“Massage Heaven Spa Studio” @ Sims Ave) January 19, 2009

In the past when spas and massage centres were still an uncommon sight in Singapore, the cost of engaging this relaxing service is really quite expensive to come by. But now we are looking at many of such services at affordable rates. One of which is at Massage Heaven Spa Studio – $38/hour.

The masseuses are experienced and their skills are a combination of sensuality with a blend of tradition in their massages. As I laid my body on the comfortable bed, taking in the scent of the light lavender aroma, I fell into a trance of total relaxation. A pair of smooth hands glide down my entire back, taking away the shagginess of the week’s workload.  I do feel that my masseuse administered the process from the top of my shoulders to my legs very well. Every finger pressure pressed on my body work wonders to untie the tensed knots.

Overall ambience was a soothing one with light decor to accompany the limited space it has in the outlet. The service crew was as usual at its best, all smiles.

Nice experience (“Grand Health Centre @ Cavenagh Rd”) January 7, 2009

The name Grand Health Centre has some indications of how the interior of it looks. Indeed going by its location, it sure is a grand one with the Istana (our President’s official resident) in the vicinity. Situated at Cavenagh Rd, you will be better directed to Hotel Grand Central which is more prominent.

It was a pretty wet day with showers in the afternoon and I managed to get some bright greetings at the front reception by a charming receptionist. After making a confirmation of my reservation, I proceeded to change into their bathing suit. A relaxing sauna to let my sweat pores open was indeed a great experience after getting chilled in the cold weather. It took me half an hour before proceeding on to receive my massage.

A local masseuse was asked to guide me into my room where I would get my aches soothe away. I was pretty surprise to hear that she was in her late 20s when she looked incredibly young. As she chatted, it was understood that she had been in this line for half a decade – 5 years. Indeed her skillful massage showed her experience as she knows exactly the spot to place her pressure onto. Using her elbow on my calf muscles was truly effective in relieving my fatigue as I had went for a 2.4km run just a few days before.

After the great massage, she warmly invited me to the TV restroom where I chilled out with a relaxing drink and a show to catch. This is one centre I would highly recommend to visit.

A Happy Experience (“Happy De Spa @ Balestier”) January 6, 2009

As the name suggests, it should be a happy experience down at Happy De Spa located along Balestier Road. The outlet provides a nice massage at only $36 for an hour (this is the promotion price) inclusive of a free body scrub. There are many services provided such as ear candling, traditional/oil massage, steam & sauna…etc

Upon reaching the outlet at Balestier Point, I registered myself (had booked in advance) and took up their promotion package of traditional massage. The steam bath was the first “activity” that I engaged in before enjoying myself at the snack bar along with a cup of warm tea served. There was free internet surfing and I made use of this facility to check out some of my emails. It is said that if you can’t put your mind to ease, your body will not be in peace too. Therefore, after clearing my emails, I was ready to embark on my massage experience.

I was gently greeted by the masseuse who apparently was from China. As we chatted on her life here in Singapore, I found that she had been here for more than a year working already. As she massaged my back and glide her hands up and down from top to bottom, I requested she massage my front. She pressed my shoulders to ease the tensions and I can hear the faint “crack” sound which felt good. Her chopping technique on my thigh front was of a swift motion. Indeed, a pleasurable experience.

I ended the session with checking my email once again before leaving. Fortunately, there were none in my inbox.
