The foot massage here is superb!
The masseuses here are skillful- they apply just the right amount of strength and at the right pressure points.
The rooms and chairs are clean and comfortable. And they even offer green tea and a selection of movies.
For a 60minutes foot massage, it costs $42. And there is a weekday 10am-6pm happy hour special where it costs under $30. The normal price of $42 is not very cheap but compared to other massage places around, this one is worth the price!
It doesn't come more auspicious than Imperial Apple, I mean come on guys, just the name alone. You are only missing worlds like "Treasure, Jade, Auspicious, or Fortune" to really Chinese is up. Anyway, Despite the name, they really do roll out the red carpet for you when you enter. Literally.
Red carpet all the way up to the check in desk. Now, they have this special M-F before 7pm (last order at 6pm) for a $29SGD foot massage. WHAT?! That is a good deal man. I'm sad to be telling you this tip, but I feel like I must.
Foot massages start with a nice foot soak with little massagy bumps on the bottom to make your feet feel all warm and fuzzy. You then get to pick any PRC bootleg movie you want to watch from their DVD collection- but beware to pick accordingly- I'll tell you why in a minute. It's really got that authentic China feel if you ask me. Comfortable recliners, ample Air Con. PERFECT.
The massage people are quite friendly and strong. Usually I have only seen men do the foot rubs. They are really strong, so for those that like it rough and hard, this is the place. Im sure you could request for a more gentle service if you asked. The best part is the neck and shoulder option. They are really good at that ish. Honestly, one of the best neck and shoulder rubs I have ever encountered.
Remember when I said pick your DVD wisely? here is why. If you pick a relatively newer or remotely interesting movie (anything about sex, gambling, you know, the good stuff) chances are your foot massager man will not really pay attention to the massage but also watch with you like one big happy family. BEWARE. You have been warned.
Also, they offer full body massages, which I tried once before, but I dont recommend it. Only reason for me was because it wasn't as impactful as the foot massage, and plus my massage lady was super chatty patty. I hate when they try to be friends with me and ask about personal questions such as "where do you live, where are you from, do you work out often, etc".
Overall, though, jokes aside, this is a great place for a foot rub. You try you like.
