Foot reflexology is an ancient practice with its origins in China and possibly even Egypt. Based on the belief that our organs are connected to pressure points in the feet, foot reflexology aims to enhance our general wellbeing. Even though the healing practice is not scientifically recognized, getting a foot reflex is still a great way to unwind from a long day or week. Here are six foot reflexology centres to check out in Singapore!
Natureland is an award-winning spa and also the #1 spa on TripAdvisor. Apart from a range of body treatments, they also offer foot reflexology services.

With branches conveniently located within city centres, Natureland provides a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.

5. Mr Lim Foot Reflexology
Tucked away in People’s Park Center, a session at Mr Lim Foot Reflexology is sometimes more like painful physical therapy rather than it is relaxing, but hey, that’s why foot reflex is about sometimes. You won’t get fancy oils here, just some good ol’ Nivea cream and no-nonsense uncles and aunties expertly kneading away at your feet. The prices here are also the cheapest on this list: it starts from just $10 for $20 minutes!
Described as a spa-container, Nimble/Knead is indeed built from shipping containers. Quirky designs and stylish decor aside, give your fatigued feet some attention with their Foot For Thought massage. At $42 for 60 minutes, the hour-long session helps to get you going again. For full body pampering, the day spa also has an extensive list of body massages, scrubs, masks and facials.
