    my mum goes to this blind couple located near Lavendar. it's where the supposedly good/best bak chor mee is (that is, it's opposite that said shop).

    I can't remember the exact location, simply because I just can't remember, and get there by remembering the general direction/curvature of the road.


    *edit*

    I found it on Google Maps. it's at Crawford Lane, which is of North Bridge Road.

    the husband/male is called Jason... I can't remember the wife's name. but if you're a bloke, Jason will be the one doing the massage for you.

    Try looking around People's Park. There are a lot of traditional massage parlour on the upper floors.

    Some of them offer "specials"; most of these are the ones with poor massage

    I thought the market rate is $40/hr.
    Some charges $45-$50/hr in areas such as Chinatown Point.

    I'm talking about decent palours, NOT those which provide "special service".

    I don't know. The ones I saw seems to be run by the older folks. And the smell of traditional massage oil seems to be everywhere. And they are mostly in open view to the public

    Maybe. I didn't really look in detail, just that there seems to be a lot of those shops there.

    I was told there is a guy who do fot reflex in katong area and use brute force to press all the points. He is one man show and every morning has long queue. those who cant take hard massage, he tell them to get lost.

    Foot reflex is addictive. A good stretching and self foot massage everyday goes a long way and its free!

    I think better ask those aunties in your neighbourhood to introduce such places for "tui na"/trad massage.
    They know better.

    Wan Yang and Kohong not bad.

    I always go to the Kensington at Parkway Parade 5th floor. I find it better than Wan Yang. And more reasonably priced too. There is a Malaysian men, a PRC man, and a Malaysian woman, plus the other staff who rotate around their various branches. They are very dedicated about the foot reflexology and shoulder and neck massage.
    Just did my foot reflex + neck/shoulder/back on Monday. Changed my whole life for the week...

    I strongly recommend Ancient Therapy at 22, Amoy Street. They're very professional as all their masseue there have certificate one and not those u teach yr discipline then become masseue type. They dim the lights and play soothing music to make you relax. the place is open without the cubicle type so it's not those "funny type" but real good o'l traditional massage that relieve your fatigue.
