The word “Nirvana” in Sanskrit means bliss and tranquility. Rustic Nirvana (now called RN Spa) was the brainchild of Ms. Yvette Chiang, a home grown Singapore who has been intrigued with body wellness at a very young age. When she was young, she used to massage her grandmother, but as her physical strength was limited, her grandmother taught her how to use chopsticks to create stronger acupressure when massaging.
In 2002, Yvette set up the first Rustic Nirvana which she went full swing into creating new therapies and evolving from traditional Asian healing disciplines. All of their therapy treatments are 100% handwork and performed by therapists.
They have some signature massages such as Bamboo De-Stress, Green Ocha, Kung Fu Ball, Oriental Chopsticks, Pillow Body and Chimu for customers to choose from and you can also have add-ons treatments if you needed more rejuvenation while in Rustic Nirvana.
