I never knew that Singapore had something like the blind massage in Vietnam or Thailand!
Mark and I were having dinner at Great World City and the man really wanted a massage. The stresses of work, he says. So being the dutiful fiancée that I am *shameless grin*, started Googling for massage parlours in the building.
And I found this little gem!
I was a little thrown off by the name, but they actually offer full body massages as well – which is always a huge plus for me. 😌
This was the therapist assigned to me – Angela!
Initially I had no idea the Angela was partially blind. I just picked up signs like when she welcomed me to enter the room when I was already right in front of her. And that her watch reads out the time to her.
Apparently My Foot Reflexology hires only handicapped individuals! It was giving them a trade where they could earn some income to get by their days – which I find absolutely amazing!
Haven’t even told you the best part – I’ve been to countless places for massages. But I can tell you that Angela provides spot-on massages. My theory is that due to her lack of sight, she is therefore stronger with her other senses. So she was able to feel my tension in specific points and knead them away.
Plus her hands are crazy strong!
Mark sung praises about his massage too! He came out looking like a happy groggy baby. ❤
It was an awesome experience! The massage was great and at the same time, my purchase helped someone in need have a job.
Looking at it from a business-y point-of-view, I felt like I bought 2 things with the price I paid –
1. A really good massage
2. A small step in making the world a little happier & better
Y’see, when you go to large massage chains – the profit they earn off you will probably go into buying their big boss a new summer home. But at such places, you’re helping someone in need put food on their table and a smile on their faces.
Here’s their menu:
So the next time you’re around Great World City and need a little quick fix – be sure to pop by My Foot Reflexology! 😉
