Spa Review: Kenko, Reflexology and Fish Spa

Kenko uses tiny Doctor Fish to make your feet “baby soft”, and also has choice reflexology treatments to just help you unwind.

Bangalore city, has so much going on these days, and it’s become very exciting just to keep up. Kenko Reflexology and Fish Spa on Lavelle Road is pretty much the place to go to if you want to really push the bill on a whole new kind of spa experience.  

The Kenko Spa, which is a famous wellness brand of Reflexology and Fish Spas, all over Singapore and Malaysia, is now available exclusively for the discerning Bangalorean and yes, it is a first of its kind in new concept Spa treatments in India.  

Kenko, means ‘healthy’ in Japanese, and what this Spa offers is wellness and health packaged exclusively to draw customers to its rejuvenating experiences.

Kenko Refloxology & Fish Spa addresses the need of the highly stressed and demanding lifestyles of customers, while it boasts of dedicated and trained spa therapists. Kenko offers treatments that have been thoughtfully designed to not just luxuriously pamper and indulge, but also to heal and nourish their guests. Restoration and rejuvenation is what they promise to their customers with a harmonious balance of energy.

The Spa has a strong oriental feel, with its use of wood, glass and ceramics and orchids placed delicately alongwith soft mood lighting and tasteful finishes that gives a feeling of relaxation and well being. The Therapy rooms have exceptionally comfortable therapy beds, for the foot reflexology, and specially designed chairs for the shoulder rub, which really does wonders to get rid of those persistent stress knots. The spa is additionally equipped with single and double massage suites, specially designed reflexology chairs area, head massage chairs and the gurgling Fish Spa.  

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.”

The Signature treatments offered at Kenko


It has been practiced for more than 4000 years ago. Modern reflexology originated towards the end of the 19th century, and developed during the early 20th century. It is a simple, safe, holistic therapy that helps to bring the body back to its optimal functioning. Foot Reflexology is a Zone Therapy, which utilizes longitudinal lines of energy flow, running up through the body from the feet to the brain for treatment. The feet are therefore the most responsive areas for working the zones due to their extreme sensitivity.


Benefits of Reflexology
  • Complete Relaxation
  • Stress Reduction
  • Restoring the Inner Balance
  • Detoxicification
  • Improved Circulation
  • General Revitalization

The fish spa is totally amazing. I've tried both the Lavelle road and Garuda mall branches though the latter is far bigger and nicer in ambience. Once you get past the unbearable ticklishness that the fish cause while nibbling at your feet, it is a truly memorable experience. Your feet feel clean and smooth. A must try!!!
