my feet and sting

There are some things that Chinese people do really, really well. Foot reflexology is one of them. Somehow, I can only get a proper foot reflex session in Hong Kong or Singapore. I haven't tried looking in Manila's Chinatown yet.

From Wikipedia: "Reflexology is an alternative medicine method involving the practice of massaging or applying pressure to parts of the feet, or sometimes the hands and ears, with the goal of encouraging a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, or to improve general health.

"The Reflexology Association of Canada defines reflexology as: A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areas within zone related areas, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, crèmes or lotions, the feet being the primary area of application, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body."

A 30-minute session costs SGD30. That's about US$21.50. Not cheap, but very effective.

Those same hands have touched Sting's feet. Showbiz by osmosis.

They have, if I remember right, six chairs which fully recline. My father fell asleep in one of them.

Located at the basement of the Lucky Plaza on Orchard Road. Will go back someday.
