We really don’t give our feet enough credit for how hard they work. From walking up and down Hong Kong’s hills high heels to kicking people out of the way to get a seat on the MTR, they really do carry us through every facet of life.
You know what time it is, it’s time to treat these feet to something special: a foot massage. Hong Kong is bursting with delightful salons that can give your tooties a good massage, but for the luxurious and special “treat-yo-self” massages you can’t go further than our top 5.
In an ideal location and with an ideal name, Soul Feet puts the heart and soul back into foot massages. The interior of the spa is dripping with luxury. From the dark coloured furnishings to the expertly chosen soft linen curtains it is hard not to feel like you are slipping into a lagoon of goodness. This salon offers both 35 minute and 50 minute foot massages, but the pampering doesn’t stop there. Why not indulge in a pressure point massage and let the therapist poke and prod away all of life’s troubles?
If you have enough time, make sure to get the Aromatic Oil Body Massage to be sent to massage heaven. Lasting around 50 minutes, be sure to prepare for afterwards as you may be a little bit greasy from the oils and a little bit euphoric from the fantastic massage you’ve just had.

The Foot Room
You’ll want to make room in your schedule for this salon, and you’ll find yourself wishing you had room in your apartment to fit the whole salon in so you can just roll out of bed and into a foot massage. Located in the suddenly trendy district of Tin Hau, this newer salon is taking Hong Kong by storm.
Offering a veritable buffet of foot reflexology treatments with various scents and scrubs, there is literally something for everyone in this groovy salon. Massages last around 50 minutes (although you’ll probably wish it went longer), and will leave you waltzing out of the salon smelling like a potpourri bag.

Zhen Foot Spa & Body Massage
Zhen Foot Spa and Body Massage is nestled smack bang in the middle of the hot mess that is Lan Kwai Fong, but it may as well be the oasis in the middle of Bali with all the relief it brings to weary travellers. Offering a broad range of massages from foot to lymphatic to pre-natal, this salon also has scraping, cupping, manis and pedis, and a warm sense of belonging and tranquility (which comes complimentary with any treatment).
The salon staff at Zhen are expertly trained in both massages and making you comfortable, so expect big comfortable chairs and some soothing aromas floating around the room. When it comes to massaging, don’t be shy to tell the masseuse if the pressure is too much on your little tootsies, foot massages are supposed to be a little intense but if you’re clawing the arms of the sofa and biting your tongue from shouting then it might be good to ask for a little relief.

The Right Spot
This fancy and downright luxurious urban spa hits all the right spots (see what we did there?). With a strong focus on customisation and personalised massages, you’ll find yourself singing songs of joy as your technician kneads into your stress spots, and uncovers and undoes tight and stressed muscles you didn’t even know existed.
For a real treat, have a look at the Foot Reflexology treatment which lasts from 50, 75, and 100 minutes of bliss. They say that everything in the body is connected, and for those who haven’t tried and fallen in love with reflexology be sure to pay attention to any pre-treatment ailments and see how they magically pitter patter away after a good rub.
Side note, this place can fill up pretty quickly so be sure to check on your BloomMe app which times work best for you (and also get a sweet discount).
