    Got persuaded by a friend to try out their herbal steam therapy at the Ang Mo Kio branch. To quote the website, its "a traditional Chinese method that combines the modalities of steam therapy, infra-red radiation and Chinese herbs. It helps to improve your blood circulation and allows for maximal absorption of the essential goodness of the medicine herbs". Wow.

    And so we went but booked prior just to be safe. Most of the people sitting there was for the chinese doctor and we could go in almost immediately.

    We both picked the slimming ones which is basic $20 $3 for the packet of (slimming) herbs.

    The place was sparsely decked out and its actually individual steam chambers separated by curtains. No frills procedures: draw the curtains, take off everything, wear the disposable underwear, then sit into the chamber. The only part of your body that's exposed is your head so if you sit next to your friend its still possible to chat. The lady was also being very professional about things and gave us a towel and tried her best to make sure that we weren't uncomfortable.

    The session is supposed to be for 20mins but after 15mins I could feel myself wanting to get out. It is VERY VERY hot. Plus you breathless just like in a sauna. But sweating buckets from that actually feels quite good.

    You can stop the session anytime u feel unwell, and it being our 1st time, the lady stayed with us all the way and chatted to us to distract us. She said for return customers she doesnt do that.

    You dry off with a towel after that, get dressed, then an area with basic plastic chairs is available for you to rest, as your heart rate will still be high. Water is also available as you'll be parched.

    I seriously dont know if the extra $3 for the slimming herbs works but you actually feel very refreshed after that and I quite liked the feeling! You'll also smell of herbs and of lemongress and ginger more so no real nasty smell.

    However, I feel the $20 is an indulgence although you do feel good. They have a package of course but only makes it out to being slightly cheaper per session.

    Am unsure about a return visit.
