During Vandana Virwani’s several visits to Singapore, she discovered Kenko Reflexology treatments, and found them to be not only relaxing, but invigorating as well. Her fascination for the Fish Spa treatment, as a natural exfoliation of the feet, by tiny “doctor fish”, further encouraged her vision.
Vandana Virvani spoke with us, as we were about to dip our feet into the beautifully tiled sink, seated on wooden benches, sipping jasmine tea, served in ceramic cups and saucers, embellished with an orchid and a prune. She is the promoter of Kenko Rexlexology and Fish Spa in India, and she says, “ I used to enjoy these treatments when I travelled to Singapore. What was even more exiting is that the techniques that are our signature treatments here, are mostly home-learnt in South East Asia. Reflecting elements of nature, Kenko Reflexology and Fish Spa is minimalist yet luxurious, and has been designed to offer rejuvenating wellness experiences that restore calm to our customers.”
