All you do is sit back and allow yourself to be mesmerized by the flash of silvery scales as they dart through the water. Located in the heart of Chinatown on the popular Pagoda Street, just outside the Exit A of Chinatown MRT station. First in Singapore to have 8 Individual tank sets to serve our customers. More than 100 Genuine Dr Fish in each tank to attend to your feet.

“Want to do it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

I read about it here on Tripadvisor before going to Singapore and it was definitely worth doing it. I loved it so much I want to do it again, very friendly people. I felt the fish spa was very relaxing and the feet feels very smooth afterwards. Make sure you do it for half an hour ($20) instead of only 15 mins ($15), great value

“Fishy Foot Spa - Fabulous!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

We first visited this business in March and Steven and his family were very friendly and entertaining. When we returned to Singapore in October our 10 year old daughter demanded we go back straight away. Steven remembered us which was a huge surprise. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, the fish, the stories and the advice of things to do and not to do. We went back 3 times in the 11 days we stayed on this trip and would highly recommend it to everyone. Very relaxing and entertaining.

“Are you kidding? A fish spa?? Here is why...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Yeah, if you are like me, you are probably reading through the attractions list for Singapore and trying to figure out why in the heck a Fish Spa is number 1 on the list of things to do. Here is why. It is something somewhat unique, paired with a very reasonable cost and the nicest, most informative owner you can ask for.

You'll see the occasion Fish Spa in the shopping centers around town, but at Alleviate, you'll be dealing with a small, privately-owned place in Chinatown. You are greeted by the owner, who will give your feet a quick wash before sending you over to the tanks. He'll ask you to take a deep breath, then put your feet in the tank where they will immediately get latched onto by dozens of little fish. It will tickle and probably make you involuntarily wiggle your feet, but you'll quickly settle in and find the sensation is a bit like having someone blow bubbles at your feet.

But the fun part is that the owner and his girlfriend are super friendly. You quickly learn that he loves fish, and that while this is a business, he is doing it because he is fascinated by fish. He took the time to explain the history, and told us how he protects the fish and keeps the tanks clean and sterile, But then he wanted to know where we had been and made suggestions for how to get the most out of our time in Chinatown.

Overall, this is a place that is really about the experience and the great service and attention. It is truly worth the "5 dots" and is a really fun place to visit.
