Tang Dynasty is a traditional themed massage and spa in Singapore. They specialise in oriental massage. I made a trip down to the Bukit Timah branch with my husband.
This is the first thing you’ll see at the reception area of Tang Dynasty. As you can tell it’s already very Oriental themed – as its name implies. Red lanterns, chinese urns, and the decor popular in olden China.
Somehow I feel like this adds to their credibility. After all, I’m here for an Oriental massage right?
When you enter, the inside is very plush and luxurious. I felt like a Chinese empress. They even had those dividers often seen in Chinese period dramas! It’s gives a sense of greater privacy and exclusiveness. Together with the mild and atmospheric lighting, the whole place had a very Forbidden Palace feel. High class!
Adding to the royal treatment, Tang Dynasty’s staff offered us tea on a quaint tray. I loved the tea set! Tang Dynasty may be a massage and spa, but besides their therapies they have put in great effort into making the theme work. A+ for effort there!
I opted to have the Tang Dynasty classic – Oriental Body Massage. It’s priced at $60 for 60 min, which I find very reasonable! You can also have a 45min session, but I chose the longer one so my hubby could enjoy more of the ala carte treatments.
The massage was not bad. It felt like other full body massages in Singapore I have gone for. Although it wasn’t as ‘Oriental’ as I expected, it’s still good! The Tang Dynasty masseuse were expert and would regularly ask if I needed any adjustments in pressure.
If you’re looking for a more traditional or unique treatment (like Javanese or Balinese massage), you should look for other spas in Singapore.
For the ala carte treament, they have everything from Ba Guan to Gua Sha! Hubby did Gua Sha and Ear Candling for 30 min each. We finished around the same time. He loved the treatments so much, especially Gua Sha. I think Tang Dynasty Massage & Spa is great for alternative medicine (TCM). Next time I’m here, I will definitely try their gua sha or ba guan therapies.
Overall, I would say that this is a place you can bring your husband if you enjoy full body massages. He can choose to have foot reflexology treatments, Gua Sha, Ba Guan, or ear cleaning while you have your massage. It’s not too expensive, and the Tang Dynasty staff are well-certified for traditional forms of alternative medicine.
