Schöne Mama TCM Physical Conditioning
For 10 years, this spa chain from China has specialised in pre- and post-natal treatments. All treatments are TCM-related, combining Western and Asian therapies in a holistic system. The actual TCM Physical Conditioning treatment you get each time depends on your needs.
Our post-natal mama received the Schöne Mama Fortify Spleen And Promote Blood Formation Massage. Think of this as a do-it-all treatment that helps to fortify the spleen, eliminate dampness, improve spleen and stomach functions, and relieve symptoms such as skin yellowing, bad breath and fatigue.
The fusion of exclusive massage techniques with Chinese medicinal herbs and steam bath therapy balances the internal organs and enhances the digestive system. It also promotes the production of “qi” and helps the body absorb nutrients better.
$250 for 60 minutes

By combining Japanese onsen and Thai-style massages, Yunomori has created a powerful spa experience unlike any other. This is one of the few spas in Southeast Asia where you can relax in various mineral-rich, warm onsen baths, a sauna and steam room, before enjoying a therapeutic massage of your choice. Facial and IPL treatments are also available.
The zen-inducing sanctuary also houses a cafe offering a wide range of wholesome Japanese dishes, plus a resting lounge. With onsen access, you’ll get to wear a yukata of your choice and imagine you’re in your favourite streets of Japan during summer. Consider this a dreamy getaway you should devote at least half a day to.

Auriga Spa Senja Sunyi
The Senja Sunyi massage combines the best of Javanese and Chinese techniques – long, soothing strokes are used along with a combination of warm moonstones and hydrating argan oil shea butter balm to ease tight spots.
At this luxurious spa, the Senja Sunyi massage combines the best of Javanese and Chinese techniques. The name Senja Sunyi means “silent twilight” in Malay, and this massage aims to lull you into that calm and peaceful state you are sometimes lucky enough to feel at twilight.
Starting from the soles of your feet, the masseuse uses long, soothing strokes with a scented rose and pomegranate body balm – or your choice of oil – to relax your mind and body. Then, the therapist moves into tui na techniques and uses warm gemstones to press into deep knots and release built-up tension. Afterwards, you can opt to use the steam room, which has a wrapped bundle of herbs inside, for extra aromatherapy benefits.

Remède Spa Warm Jade Stone Massage
As you would expect of The St. Regis Singapore, the spa rooms here are simply luxurious. This signature massage uses custom-made green jade gemstones that are gently heated to energise and revitalise your body and soul. As the gemstones glide over your skin, you will feel your tension fade away. The relaxing warmth is contrasted with cool stones that are used on your face in gentle motions, to boost lymphatic drainage while soothing your skin.

Two hours of downtime – that’s the appeal here! The Executive Escape package combines a Customised Full Body Massage, a revitalising “Foot Reviver” foot massage and a hydrating Express Facial to ensure you look and feel your best as you climb the corporate ladder (or do yet another Zoom meeting). Our tester liked that the massage can be personalised to suit your needs. For example, you can ask the therapist to use firm pressure on your stiff shoulders, or go with an aromatherapy massage that uses gentle Swedish style techniques to relax your mind and body.

g.Spa Gateway to Vitality
If you love a serious deep tissue massage, Gateway to Vitality will check all the right boxes. A combination of pressure point massage and long invigorating strokes, this treatment is designed to clear energy blockages for better flow of “qi”, also known as your body’s vital force. The boost in blood circulation speeds up toxin removal, relieves aches and helps you sleep better.
After the massage, you’ll want to make time to enjoy the facilities at g.Spa. The massage package includes Spa Admission, granting you a one-time entry and 24-hour access to the hot pool, steam room, sauna room, relaxation lounge, and an a la carte buffet that’s worthy of a day retreat.
$163 for 60 minutes, inclusive of Spa Admission
g.Spa, 102 Guillemard Rd, Guillemard Village, #02-02, Tel: +65 6280 8988
Spa Esprit Super Vibrator
The cheeky name of the treatment hides a serious purpose. Super Vibrator is a new-age therapy that reads your EPS (Emotional Positioning System) and maps out your “energy weaknesses”. Then, you’re prescribed an essential oil blend that will be used in a 90-minute Lomi Lomi massage – a gentle massage with long, flowing strokes. The session ends with a little sound bath, featuring Tingsha cymbals and Tibetan singing bowls that will create healing vibrations to round off the restorative treatment.
Afterwards, don’t be surprised if you need to pee more often than usual – it’s a sign that your digestive system (and detoxification process) has been stimulated. Just remember to stay hydrated.
Whether you think this is a much-needed holistic therapy or new-age hocus pocus, it’s undeniably a relaxing aromatherapy massage and a fun experience for you or a group of girlfriends.
$250 for 90 minutes

Genkinoya Back And Shoulder Massage With Bixeps
Besides TCM massage experts, this spa works with qualified TCM physicians to assess each patient’s condition. Treatments can include a combination of acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and massage.
For those who would like to build more muscles, consider trying the Bixeps machine that uses magnetic fields to stimulate muscles in a non-invasive and painless manner, and in the process, activating mitochondria, the cells that help us produce energy. Each session takes 10 minutes.
$58 for 30 minutes; $78 for 60 minutes of back and shoulder massage. $50 for 10 minutes on the Bixeps machine.

Fresver Beauty Neck & Shoulder Moxibustion
Everyday habits like sitting and being deskbound for long hours, constantly lowering your head to use your phone or hunching over your laptop can lead to aches and stiffness in the neck and shoulders. The Neck & Shoulder Moxibustion massage is designed to relieve pain and lethargy by taking care of these key areas.
The treatment starts with a simple oil massage to open the pressure points. Then, a special rubber brush is applied to the treatment area to improve blood circulation and “open pores”. Immediately after, a warm mud mask containing herbs such as ginseng is applied, and held in place by cling wrap for about 20 minutes before being removed. “My neck and shoulder areas felt immediately loosened after the treatment,” our tester said.
$340 for 60 minutes
