Singaporeans are really experts at enjoying life. We are always on the hunt for shopping deals, good food and for many of us, cheap massages. But a problem arises when a massage parlour or spa is TOO affordable—we inevitably ask: “Clean or not ah?”
While we do have our fair share of “dirty” massage parlours, it’s not impossible to find one that’s easy on the wallet yet also clean and good. In fact, the authorities have long been cracking down on such vice-related activities—the Massage Establishments Act (effective 1 Mar 2018) restricts massage operations and services to until 10.30pm only.
Still, if you’re looking for a good rub down—in a super shiok but not dirty way—here are some clean and cheap massage parlours in Singapore.

Disclaimer: The best way to gauge the expertise of a masseuse (without actually going for the massage) is to ask around and read reviews—which is exactly what I did. For safety and peace of mind, I always recommend you continue reading online reviews and calling up to clear any doubts before heading down and/or booking a session.
2. Massage Master
Massage Master has 2 outlets—one in Bedok and one in Alexandra. They offer both foot and full body massage services, but for the latter, they don’t specify what techniques are used. You can choose to have a full body massage lasting anywhere between 30 minutes to 120 minutes. There’s also the options to add on Therapeutic Cupping, Gua Sha Treatment, or Ear Candling services, all 10 minutes each and costing between $18 to $22.
At $66.34 (or $60.99 for members) for a 1h full body massage, it’s one of the cheapest full body massage services out there. The online reviews are also very good, with a 4.2-star rating on Google aggregated from 219 reviews.
Address: 341 Bedok Rd, Singapore 469522
Type of massage: General full body massage
Price range: $40 – $126. For a 1-hour massage, it’s $60.99 (members) / $60.99 (public).
3. Ancient Dynasty Spa

Ancient Dynasty Spa has a great menu of different massage services, and most of them use essential oils. Oil is only optional for the Shiatsu massage.
One great thing about Ancient Dynasty Spa is that all prices are nett—hooray for no GST!
The different types of techniques (e.g. deep tissue massage, Swedish massage) are all charged the same. Instead, prices differ based on:
- How long you want the massage to last (30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes)
- Whether you go during peak (weekdays 6.30pm onwards, weekends, public holidays) or non-peak hours (weekdays 11am – 6.30pm).
|Time||30 min||60 min||90 min||120 min|
|Non-peak||$50||$56 (U.P. $65)||$84 (U.P. $95)||$112 (U.P. $125)|
|Peak||$50||$60 (U.P. $65)||$88 (U.P. $95)||$116 (U.P. $125)|
The promotional prices above are valid till 31 Dec 2023. You may notice that the usual prices don’t differ between peak and non-peak hours, so always check for their latest promotional prices!
Unless you’re a member at Massage Master, Ancient Dynasty Spa is the cheapest massage parlour in this list. The online reviews for it are also pretty impressive, with Google ratings currently standing at 4.4 stars (209 reviews) for their Siglap outlet, and 4 stars (118 reviews) for their Upper Thomson one.
- Upper Thomson: 5 Thong Soon Ave, Singapore, 787433
- Siglap: 13 Upper East Coast Rd, Singapore, 455206
Type of massage: Shiatsu, Swedish, hot stone, deep tissue massage, oriental cupping
Price range: $50 – $125
4. Healing Touch
View this post on Instagram
Healing Touch is perhaps the biggest affordable massage chain in Singapore. It’s got 9 locations, including the upmarket Tanglin Road. Many of their massages are available for discounted prices with a trial session:
- $54 (with GST) 1h Deep Tissue Massage Trial (U.P. $68 with GST)
- $38 nett Bojin Guasha Face Lift Trial (U.P. $244.08 with GST)
- $38 nett Bojin Tummy Trim Trial (U.P. $270 with GST)
This award-winning chain is more a wholistic spa than massage parlour, and offers slimming and facial treatments too. Do note that prices differ based the type of massage or treatment you choose. The most no-fuss massage is probably their deep tissue massage, which costs $68 for a 60min session, $101.50 for a 90min session, and $135.10 for a 2h session. All of these prices are inclusive of GST.

Price range: $68 – $172.80
Natureland is another popular chain, and one that opens till 2am at some of their outlets (Orchard Liat Towers and Orchard Point)—I suppose with non-massage services, since the Massage Establishments Act makes it legal for massage services to continue past 10.30pm.
They offer either body therapy (from $70.20 for 60 mins) and foot reflexology (from $37.80 for 60 mins). It’s slightly more expensive than Healing Touch; the above rates are the discounted rates for members.
Non-members have to fork out $81 for a 60 min body therapy session. Currently, this is priced at a promotional rate of $70.20 until 31 Dec 2023, at all outlets except for Natureland Marina Bay Sands and Jewel Changi Airport.
For the best prices, you can consider getting a membership. Their membership prices apply to all of their outlets across Singapore—so you won’t need to worry about accessibility. It’s a little pricey at $500 or $1000 for a year—with different gifts and therapy sessions thrown in for each—so only get the membership if you know you’ll go quite a few times and make it worth the money.
Outlets: Robertson Walk, Valley Point, Orchard Point, Holland Village, Springvale East Coast, Chijmes, Orchard Liat Towers, Clarke Quay, ION Orchard, Orchard Rendezvous, Changi Airport T3, Jewel Changi Airport, Marina Bay Sands. View Natureland outlet locations.
Type of massage: Body therapy, foot reflexology
Price range: $70.20 – $129.60 (member) / $81 – $145.80 (public)
6. Le Spa
If GST charges are a big turn-off to you, you might want to give Le Spa a shot. Le Spa is not GST-registered, so all their prices are nett. The spa gained popularity for being open 24-7 before the Massage Establishment Act revision in 2018.
Le Spa offers 4 main types of body massages: Urban fusion, Balinese, Swedish, and warm oil therapy. The first 3 follow the same pricing structure, while the last one is more expensive.
|Urban fusion, Balinese, Swedish||$79||$118||$158|
|Warm oil therapy||$99||$148||$198|
If you go to their About Us page, you’ll see that Le Spa also lists a “Le Spa Promotion @ $42 for 45min. Valid for first-timers only”.

7. Feet Haven
View this post on Instagram
Despite its name, Feet Haven offers more than just foot massages—they have full body massages on their menu too. The exact technique used is not specified, and it is simply called the “super shiok body massage”.
The member discount is only $3 for a 60min massage, which isn’t really a big incentive to join their membership at the price of $228. Furthermore, its public prices are already affordable: Prices start at $56 ($53 for members) for 60 minutes, and go up to $112 ($106 for members) for 2 hours. If you pay for a package of 10 sessions, 60min each, you get 1 session free.

- Ubi: Blk 304 Ubi Avenue 1 #01-025, Singapore 400304

Price range: $53 – $112
8. Heal Spa
Heal Spa has one of the more comprehensive menus, offering Shiatsu, Swedish, hot stone, arometherapty, and lymphatic drainage massages (they call them “Wellness Therapy”) as well as therapeutic treatments like cupping and gua sha.
All treatments are for 60min, with the most affordable ones being Shiatsu and Swedish at $94 each. The others are $128.
The hot stone massage is one of their popular services, and uses hot Japanese volcanic stones to relieve tension and help ease fatigue. If you’re not sure which type of massage is best for you, you can use their “Signs and Symptoms Checker” search tool on their website.

Knead aims to “knead your pain away”. They offer 3 types of massages: Chinese ($60), Swedish ($68), and something kinda vague called Supreme Wellness Therapy ($88). All prices are for 60min sessions.
They also offer spa and facial treatments, plus herbal therapy (read: essential oils and aroma) to go along with your massage.
Address: Holland Village, 36A Lorong Mambong, Singapore 277693
Type of massage: Chinese, Swedish
Price range: $60 – $88
10. Bonus tip: Use a booking app for even cheaper deals
Just as there are dining reservation apps, there are now apps to help you book affordable beauty- and wellness-related services which include massages. Both platforms have a transparent review system, so you can read honest feedback by previous customers.
Fave (formerly Groupon)
If you’re not fussy about where you get your massage, deals website/app Fave (previously Groupon) offers some of the cheapest in town. A quick visit to their site reveals rubdowns as cheap as $10 for 1 hour session, although most of these are in rather unknown places and we can’t vouch for their cleanliness.
If the deals on Fave seem a little too good to be true, there’s Vaniday, a deals site that’s more focused on beauty treatments. Prices are not as cheap, but the brands look a bit more legit. Not all of these are spas, though. Some of them are nail salons and aesthetics centres that just so happen to offer quick head/shoulder/foot massages too.
11. Popular types of full body massages in Singapore
Which type of massage should you go for?
If you’re looking for what’s called a “happy ending massage”, you can look elsewhere. A lot of these services are not actually legal, you’d be hard pressed to find any official websites or information on it. (You might have some luck trawling the dirty depths of local forums though…)
Here are some other popular types of massage in Singapore (clean ones). The prices for these are similar, and depends more on the establishment than the massage type.
Swedish Massage / Deep Tissue Massage
The most popular is probably the Swedish massage, which typically uses relative gentle massage techniques to relieve tension and improve circulation. The difference between Swedish massage and deep tissue massage is that the latter generally uses a lot more pressure, so get ready for some initial post-massage soreness. First-timers can opt for the Swedish massage, and if that’s too mild for you, try the deep tissue massage.
Next is the full body massage, Thai style. Expect lots of pressing, rocking and stretching, including some super shiok cracking of your knuckles and other joints. Traditional Thai massage rarely involves hot oils and/or lotions, so if you don’t like those, this could be a good choice.
Shiatsu Massage (Acupressure Massage)
Shiatsu massage means “finger pressure massage”, and is a Japanese technique that’s similar to the Chinese Tui Na. Tui Na (“pinch and pull”) massage is sometimes called the meridian point massage as well, and is typically more for injury treatment than for relaxation. Shiatsu uses the thumbs and fingers to press and knead away muscle knots.
