Rejuvenating Late Night Massage at Le Spa (Club Street)

It was Sunday afternoon and I just finished my haircut at Headline Hair Salon at China Square Central. My girlfriend and I strolled along Club Street to look for some light bites before dinner time. As we passed through Gemmill Lane, there was this spa tucked in between a line of prestigious restaurants, with a 24-hour sign hang at the pillar. Glancing through the full glass shopfront, you could see its distinctive oriental design and it seems to have a nice ambience as well. We walked immediately to try our luck if we could get a slot for massage, but unfortunately the spa was fully booked and have to wait for another two hours before the masseurs are free. While we have another appointment in the evening, we had to give up today’s massage.

Two weeks later, my “itch” for massage come back and we really wanted to try out Le Spa and my girlfriend managed to make an appointment for two body massage in the late evening.

Reception area of Le Spa

Once you stepped into the reception area, be greet by a beautifully decorated oriental theme reception and received a warm welcome from the receptionist. While preparing the masseurs for our massage, she served us a cup of ginger tea while we sat down at the waiting area.

While I was working under the hot sun during the noon, I was sweating like a swine so I thought to take a good bath before my massage. Unfortunately, the couple treatment room does not come with its own restroom so I would need to freshen up myself at their common restroom at the end corner of the spa. The masseur handed me a towel and robe to me so I could wear it when I finished my shower. (you could not expect me to walk along the common walkway with a towel wrapped around my waist)

The treatment room is very clean and in the centre sits two massage bed with common settings. The massage beds were covered with towels and a rolled up towel which was used as leg rest while we are lying face down. The masseurs politely knocked onto the door to check if we are prepared and we commence with our massage.

While the masseurs starts kneading our tired body, they would constantly check with us if their strength is adequate before proceeding the massage. The skilful masseurs worked effortless with their experienced hands and rejuvenating our bodies during the 60-minutes massage. While we dressed ourselves up in the room, the masseurs had already prepared a drink for at the waiting area before we leave the spa. Their good services have left us a good impression.

2nd Visit to Le Spa

A week later, we decided to visit the spa again with two of my siblings. My girlfriend called up to make an appointment and surprisingly, she managed to identify her name which most spa don’t, and check if she is asking for the same masseur that had given her the massage during her previous treatment session. Again, the massage was satisfying and I decided to sign up a package with them, noting that it was the only first time that I have signed up for a spa package.

After rounds of experience at Le Spa, I thought they have really put in efforts into customer services and taken good care of all aspects of a customer visiting their spa for a massage. Most of the masseurs are experienced and certainly they also managed to maintain their good standards throughout our times of visit. I would highly recommended this spa for a good late night rejuvenating massage. By the way, I have also added them into my late night massage directory as well. Enjoy ~

Stiff Neck Relief Massage at Xing Mei Spa

Frontage of Xing Mei Spa
The spa is located along the neighbourhood in Jurong West

I was driving my colleague home when my Watsapp ringtone sounded – a message from my girlfriend. Her sister yearns for a foot massage and asked if I will be interested in joining them. As a matter of fact, both my girlfriend and I has been wishing for a massage since two weeks ago which I have been tied down by my busy work schedule. Without much hesitation, I agreed promptly and eagerly picked them up at their house.

Originally we thought of visiting Club Street’s Le Spa, but thought it is really unnecessary to travel from Jurong to city area just for a last minute massage. Through my girlfriend’s sister recommended, we headed for a 24-hour massage spa in Jurong West which was only five minutes drive away.

Xing Mei Spa is not really difficult to find as it is located beside a 24-hour clinic. The green signboard and orange neon spa’s name is eye-catching in the night while shops are closing one after another. A group of middle age women was sitting right in front of the spa, happily chatting and laughing away. Looking at their attire, they are most likely to be the masseurs for the spa.

1st floor interior of Xing Mei Spa
Massage chairs lined along the first level of the spa.

Upon entering the spa, be enticed by the aromatic scent that floats in the air while the receptionist greeted us with a smile over the counter. Opposite the counter was four big-sized foot reflexology chairs which some customers were enjoying their massage under the dark purple lit atmosphere.

It is nine in the night and it seems there wasn’t much customers at this time and making a booking was as simple as snapping the fingers. (However, during my conversation with the masseur later on, they tends to be more busy with more customers coming in late night.)

My girlfriend’s sister opted for a foot reflexology while my girlfriend and I preferred having body massage. To my surprise, the receptionist has asked one of the masseurs to usher both of us to our treatment room on the second level which I never expect the spa to be of this scale. The masseur led us through a narrow walkway connecting to a staircase while she check our if we preferred to have a couple room. She led us through a series of treatment rooms (about 6-7 rooms) before reaching the end of the passageway and showing us into our room.

The couple room was in simple design and looks much like a normal home except with two massage beds sitting right in the middle of the room with sides almost in contact with the walls, I wondered how could they possible give us a proper massage. Right in the other corner of the room, there was a another door to a bathroom which we could use privately. They provided us with disposable shorts instead of underwear which is much easier to put on. The masseurs prompted us twice if we were ready during our course of changing and I am puzzled because we just entered the room not long ago.

Much to our comfort, we laid down onto the spacious massage bed, resembling those of Chun Tin Road’s Le Spa. As usual, I always requested for a masseur with stronger strength and the other masseur recommended this Malaysian Chinese masseur to me.

Without further delay, she gently rub and knead randomly along my neck, as if she was in searching for something and later commented on my old injury – stiff neck.

Using a combination of acupressure and constant stroking, she applied adequate pressure against my common aching points and meridians accurately using her thumbs and elbow, while moving inch by inch onto the shoulder blade. The masseur was so detailed that she moves my arm around to work on meridians along my shoulder blade.

Without much focus on my back, she moves onto my extended, hamstring and quads which was tremendously “sensational”.  She had massage along a hardened meridian which she explained which was caused by frequent crossing of legs. While the 60 minutes are coming to an end, she massaged my head and there was sharp pain on the top of the skull. As explained, there was “wind” and one of the common cause was washing hair in the night without drying it properly. Bingo !

The massage session ended soon and I just felt so lighten over the shoulders and back. Amazing.

Some lessons which she has taught me today

  • Refrain from staying up late and looking at computer – cause of stiff neck
  • Refrain from crossing legs while sitting down – cause for pain and tightened meridians along hamstring and quads.
  • Refrain from washing hair in the night without drying it properly – cause of “wind’ in head which will leads to headaches.
The spa has been operated for more than two years and despite just being a heartland spa, they have maintained very good cleanliness. My girlfriend has also commented her masseur was skilful, so was mine. The prices are reasonable (body massage at $50, foot reflexology at $35), you are paying for a good deal for experienced masseurs. By the way, for those looking to relieve your ache, you can try out my masseur, Bobo.

Oriental Chopsticks Massage at Huang Ah Ma Oriental Spa Chamber

Few days ago, I received an email from Jasmine Tay, their Corporate Accounts Relations Manger that they are currently having a promotion for their foot massage and special chopsticks massage which took me more than two weeks to confirm due to my heavy schedule at work. Finally, I managed to squeeze out my time to enjoy the wonderful experience.

The oriental spa is tucked away at the corner of Porcelain Hotel which is pretty easy to locate if you are traveling along Mosque Street as the brilliancy of the coloured wallpaper will draw your quick attention at first glance. If you are driving, you can simply parked your car along the street car park lots at Mosque Street. However, do remember to put your coupons as this area is a “Hot Spot” for “Uncle Sam”(ie. summon).

The oriental spa’s entrance sits behind the sofa on the left side of the reception and unless you have very good observation, it is not easily noticeable if the doors are closed. As I make my way into the spa, i was being warmly welcomed by the receptionist.

We were ushered to a relaxing waiting area where they served us a cup of hot ginger tea while they make preparation for our foot reflexology. The masseurs then came in to show us the way into a foot reflexology room which we are sharing with another two guests whom are leaving soon. The room is well equipped with a television providing a wide range of TV programmes whilst we sit back, relax and pampered ourselves with an awesome foot reflexology by their skilful masseurs for a 60-minutes Royal Foot Massage ($48).

In case you are unaware, The Oriental Spa Chamber also named as Huang Ah Ma is a proud concept by Mary Chia Holdings Limited. Huang Ah Ma, is a traditional Manchurian expression for Royal Father. The customers get to receive royal treatments services as though you were a member from the royal family. This fantastic concept spa targets the audience of both men and women serving them with prestigious Oriental treatments. Customers are thus spoilt for choice of awesome treatments in the quiet and serenity of their oriental settings together with their well trained therapists.

Soon after our wonderful foot reflexology treatment, we were ushered politely to a couple room for their special 60-minutes chopstick massage ($68) (Note: this is their latest original treatment that’s being newly added to their house of menu!!). We felt so blessed and would like to hereby express our heartfelt appreciation to Huang Ah Ma for allowing us the special priviledge for the taste of their new treatment.

With the plain use of just a couple pair of chopsticks, we felt the collision of the chopsticks being gradually rubbed against the selected various parts of the body. Its felt similar like how you feel when you are receiving a Guasha treatment in TCM. We felt the blood flows through our body releasing a burst of positive energy leaving us feeling refreshed after the fantastic one hour of treatment. Masseurs were constantly applying their skills with extreme precision to ensure that we are not in any way feeling uncomfortable during the process. Nevertheless, don’t you worry, as they are more than willing to accommodate to customers’s needs if in case, we cant take the pressure at all. The overall experience left both my girlfriend and me an unforgettable one. We both simply enjoyed the treatments to the max.

Other Facilities at Huang Ah Ma

  • 21 Massage Beds
  • 8 Foot Reflexology Stations
  • 1 Couple Room
  • 1 VIP Room

Conclusion

We will definitely be back for more on the skilful treatments at Huang Ah Ma and i am already spreading the word around to people i know on their speciality chopsticks massage which is a “MUST TRY”. Blessed us, Huang Ah Ma has also now extended their operating hours to as late as 3am to cater to midnight owls out there. Sounds wonderful, isn’t it? Thank you Huang Ah Ma for coming up with such a thoughtful idea. I’ll definitely pay a re-visit to your premises for a relaxing and soothing massage treatment real soon again.

Late Night Massage at NatureLand Spa & Massage Robertson Walk

NatureLand Spa & Massage

Though this was the second time I visited NatureLand (Naturally with my sisters and girl friend), I think they have put in great efforts to provide better massage environment for its customers. First, it started off with hygiene issues.

As most of the massage lovers would know, while you are resting face down on the raised massage bed, the head rest (the hole) is usually covered only with a towel which none of us know if it was being changed after a customer finish his massage session. NatureLand did an extra step to provide an additional disposable face rest cover for hygiene purpose which is a good for those with sensitive skin.

The body massage would start with the back and previously when I am done with my back and shoulders, we will continued immediately with the front side of the body. However, this time round after I am done with the back and shoulder massage, the masseurs leaves the room and brought in two heating pads and placed it over my back while she continued to massage my lower body. There is no extra charges for this service.

Meanwhile, one of my sisters and girl friend went for the foot reflexology and they have also praised that the foot masseurs are superb and one of the best among the foot reflexology which we have visited.

Current Price List (Updated 30th Dec 2013)

Comparing their rates with other late night massage parlours, the rates NatureLand is charging customers is considered justifiable or even cheaper despite the fact that they are opened in a prime location like Robertson Walk.

Conclusion

NatureLand has become top in the list for late night massage and if they are able to sustain their standards, I believe it would be a great success for the spa as well. Meanwhile, remember to call up to fix an appointment before going down as they do have peak hours where they are fully booked.

Parking is available easily around that area so that should not be a problem for car owners.

Rejuvenating Late Night Massage by Native Thai Masseurs at Healing Thai Massage

It was too dark and with my iPhone camera, hence the bad shot.

This massage parlour employs native Thai-certified Massage Therapists who are suitably skilled in their massage techniques. It is an ideal place for those who work till late at night and looking for a good massage to relieve pains from sitting long hours in front of the computers as the parlour closes only at 3am. It would be wise to call for an appointment first before going down as they have a pretty heavy customer volume especially after midnight. Below are the rates for your reference.

After a long day at work, I decided to have dinner somewhere near Jalan Besar and it was when I stumbled at the brightly lit signboard of the spa parlour. The price for the services were rather reasonable. I tried the $38 for 45 mins Foot Reflexology and $65 for 60 mins Thai Oil Massage on this visit.
Looks welcoming

I started with the foot reflex first. Although the cars buzzing outside along the street caused some distraction, the alluring place more than  compensated for by its very therapeutic foot reflex service provided by a native Thai therapist. I was impressed by the fact that she instinctively knew which part of my body to apply pressure on, as some therapists  simply do not hit the right, sweet spot. She also asked if I wanted to increase the pressure, but I declined as I was cautious of a painful sole from my other foot massage experiences after the therapists applied too much pressure. I was almost dozing off when the therapist informed me that the 45 mins foot reflex was done. She wiped the oil off my feet with a cloth and applied some powder after that. Refreshing.

I moved to the oil massage thereafter.  There was a considerable  number of cubicles, perhaps 10-12 of them, out of which a few are for couples. The rooms were rather dimly lit, well-suited for a relaxing massage experience. Some of them have beds, while others have only mattresses on the floor. They also provided light clothing and disposable undergarments for the oil massage.

Quickly, I went into the stop to see if they are still open…
The minute the Thai therapist applied the first pressure onto my aching back, I knew immediately that my money was well-spent. Throughout the oil massage, she covered almost every point on my aching back as well as my tired legs. Though it was slightly painful, I still managed to fall asleep throughout the massage. I had my back and neck bone stretched as well. After almost 2 hours of massage, I felt a distinctively lighter body with lesser ache and walked out a happy man. The native Thai therapists waved to me with a big smile and welcomed me to return, which I definitely would.
