Getting a full-body massage can be a great way to relieve stress as well as soothe those nagging muscle aches that just won’t seem to go away.
Life in Singapore can be so hectic that a 60-minute massage is an ideal way to just unplug from it all, and give yourself time to rest and reflect. When everything lines up right — the ambience is ideal, the treatment suits your budget and your therapist is hitting all the right spots — a massage is the very definition of an affordable luxury.
If you’ve ever been to Bangkok with your friends, you know how much Singaporeans love getting massages. Since you can’t always drop everything and jet off to the Land of Smiles every time your shoulder starts cricking, fortunately there are a couple of decent massage chains in Singapore.
We surveyed 10 popular (and non-illicit) massage places in Singapore. We’ve sorted the chains and/or treatments according to three budget bands: under $70, under $120 and under $200 for a 60-minute session.
