Best massage chairs in Singapore
Whether you’re a certified “millennial auntie” or are experiencing the results of hunching over a computer, you’ll agree that a good massage is heaven sent – more so if you can get one at your every whim.
That said, while owning a massage chair might seem like a hefty purchase, having your very own “masseuse” at home can help alleviate body aches so you don’t turn into the hunchback of Notre Dame. From gaming massage chairs to sleek foldable ones, here are some of the best massage chairs in Singapore that may be worthy of an investment:
