Feeling all stressed out, tensed and need a break? Why not go for a traditional massage? Massage is well known for being an extremely effective way to soothe the body and mind, especially in a high pressure society like ours. A traditional massage brings the natural, cultural factor into the mix, allowing you to experience a wholesome, relaxing experience, while feeling like you’re taking a trip across the world! Here are some types of traditional massage you can find in Singapore.

Shiatsu Massage

Talk about Japan and you’ll immediately start thinking of their food, fashion, and of course their famous onsens! Onsens are Japanese bathhouses, and many of them also offer massage services to complete the entire relaxation experience. There’s nothing really like shiatsu massage. The feeling of lying down on a bed with Japanese music playing in the background, feeling the masseuse ease your worries away, is definitely one of a kind.

If you’re looking for shiatsu massage in Singapore look no further than Ikeda Spa. Ikeda Spa is Singapore’s first day care spa, and offers a wide variety of not just massage options, but also facial and beauty packages for you! Besides their much raved about shiatsu massage, check out their aromatherapy massage, which uses exquisite scents to calm your soul, leaving you feeling more refreshed than ever.

Swedish Massage

Sweden has many great exports: Ikea, H & M, and also Swedish massage! Swedish massage is the most common form of massage in the West, and is in fact the default type of massage for many massage parlours. Instead of the Asian principles of qi and acupuncture points, Swedish massage relies mostly on western concepts of physiology and anatomy. You can be sure that your masseuse is kneading all the tension away from the muscles in your body!

If you’re for traditional Swedish massage, look no further than Knead! While Knead isn’t a luxury spa like many other massage places, it is definitely affordable, effective and authentic. Be prepared for gentle kneading and long strokes, and the feel of the massage oils spreading across as the masseuse eases away all your stress and tension.

Thai Massage

Thailand, known as the “Land Of Smiles”, is also the birthplace of Thai massage, which is fusion of the best of Ayurveda, with the best of traditional Chinese massage. This fusion of cultures results in a massage style that is actually sort of like yoga, in which the masseuse not only kneads and rubs your body, but also arranges your body in to different positions.

Sabaai Sabaai is the place to go if you’re looking for authentic traditional Thai massage. The entire experience of Sabaai Sabaai, from the décor to the masseuses themselves bring you out of the hustle and bustle of the city into the peace of a quiet Thai sanctum.

Walked past did shop and decided to enquire about their eyebrow embroidery (i did not look online for reviews or anything. chanced upon the shop). Was told by the sales person that there is only 2 packages - $380 vs $980. They obviously tried to sell me the $980 service (no downtime. effect of this looks like you've shaded your eyebrows) by telling me the cons of the $380 service (downtime of 3-5 days i.e. cannot wash eyebrows/touch water on eyebrows for 3-5 days. effect of this is a line-by-line drawn on your eyebrow to mimic them). paid a total of $1018 ($980+$38 for a soothing gel) The treatment was almost painless (minimal pain) and the beautician did a good job in designing my brows (2 different designs to choose from) before finally proceeding. i'm very satisfied with their service in general but dissatisfied later that i found out through searching online that there were many intermediate price range, which i was not informed about despite specifically asking 2-3 times as i was quite taken aback that the price was so steep.If i had been informed about the differences between the services, i might have made a more informed choice..

My first experience with jap salon. Went for haircut yesterday. Overall service was good. But i expect a better skill from director level. Not worth the money of $80 just for a normal haircut. After haircut my hair look frizzier. Doesnt meet my overall expectation.

i did fringe rebonding. the effect is quite good. it does not lay flat on my face. pricing is on the high side but they did wash and blow the entire hair for me after the rebonding. i like it that it does not have a lot of waiting time though.
