Foot Spa on Galle Road (Vajira Road Corner) Colombo
|Foot Spa near Majestic City Mall Galle Road Colombo|
I was across the road from Majestic City Shopping Mall on Galle Road looking for a shop to buy a recharge card for my Dialog SIM Card. Going towards the right side from the mall, I spotted a small door with "Foot Spa" written on top. This was the corner of Vajira Road. This establishment had a Salon on the Vajira Road side and a foot massage shop (actually a basement) on the Galle Road side. Inside, there was a small reception counter and behind that, two massage chairs separated by curtains. I don't remember now whether the basement was airconditioned. It probably was because I do not remember having experienced any discomfort there. They told me what I wanted to hear: Rs. 1000 for a one hour foot massage. There were three Sri Lankan young ladies in the shop, one to man the reception and two for the massage.
I settled into one of the chairs and the massage began with a rubbing of the feet with a hot towel. The rest was much like a foot massage in Thailand except for the massage cream. In Thailand, a mixture of oil and balm is applied whereas in Foot Spa, they used a foot cream, like a moisturiser. Still, the massage was great value for the money they charged. Foot Spa seems to have worked hard in finding and recruiting the right staff for their business. I wish them luck and hope they open more such outlets in Colombo. Next, I will try "Foot Rub" to see why they charge 80% more than Foot Spa. Will report on that.
