While stepping off an escalator, I stumbled when my shoe got caught at the escalator edge and I sprained my foot. Limping forward, I quickly rubbed my foot to ease the pain. I suddenly spotted a reflexology outlet called 'Refresh Bodyworks' and entered it. I requested the staff to massage my sprained foot carefully, which she obliged. Since the injury was simply a muscle sprain at the foot, I figured that a good massage was needed to mitigate the pain incurred.
The staff was careful and thorough in kneading my foot in the attempt to minimise any possible swelling. I cringed at the spot where it hurt most but gradually subsided as the foot massage progressed further. As the pain lessened and relaxation increased, my foot felt a lot better than before. Soon, the massage was done and I thanked and paid the staff for her expertise. As I was escorted out, I realised that I need to put ice over the sprained area to prevent any further swelling. I left with a smile and satisfaction while I hurried home to rest my foot with a pack of ice. Refresh Bodyworks's opening hours: 11am - 10pm.
