Best Cheap Massages To Pamper Yourself With In Johor

Life of a tai tai.

Given how hard we work, sometimes we just need to take some time off and enjoy a massage to get rid of kinks and knots in our body. But let’s be real: it’s not cheap to have one, especially a full-body massage. If you’re on a budget and have time to spare, why not cross the Causeway to Johor Bahru to enjoy that pampering session at a more affordable price? Here are five places to go.

Century Health Care & Beauty (KSL City)

Century Health Care & Beauty is the only one in this list that does 30-minute full body massages ($13.20/RM40), so it’s great if you’re short on time and just want a quick rub down. Usually, it is at least 1 hour.

Both their full body massages and foot reflexology services are the cheapest in this list. If you want, you may add gua sha (scraping) or cupping treatments at $11.50/RM35.

There’s also a top-to-toe package at $88.20 / RM268. It includes an hour of full body and foot massages each, plus a manicure and pedicure.

QS Reflexology (KSL City & City Square)

In case you’re confused, QS Reflexology used to be called SQ Massage & Nails. They have two outlets, one at KSL City and one at City Square JB. The prices are slightly different.

You might notice that the menu at City Square is slightly different. Full-body massages, however, are more expensive at this outlet. The shoulder & head and footies are a few Ringgit cheaper though.

If you’re already in KSL City, you don’t have to bother travelling to City Square for non-full body massages because the difference in prices are a few ringgit, which amounts to less than $2.

Optional add-ons include a 30-minute scrub ($16.50 /RM50) and a 20-minute foot bath ($12.50 / RM38).

Thong Yee Thong (Taman Pelangi)

Unlike many of the others, Thong Yee Thong is not located in a mall. It’s at Taman Pelangi, which is relatively close to Woodlands, so it’s pretty convenient to go if you are driving. The prices may look different from other listed prices, but that’s because they charge 6% SST (the Malaysian equivalent of our GST) and these prices reflect the additional taxes.

Prices for a foot massage start at $17.50/RM53 for 60 minutes, and the full body massage are from $26.20/RM79.50 for 60 minutes.

For the full body massage, you can choose to add on either gua sha (scraping) or cupping for free. If you’re new to it and prefer to do without, that’s fine too.

Price (20 min) Price (30 min) Price (40 min)
Shoulder massage RM25.44 RM38.16 RM50.88
Price (60 min) Price (80 min) Price (120 min)
Foot massage RM53 RM65.72 RM100.70

Address: 71-73-75, Jalan Kuning, Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru 80400

Bangkok Spa (Taman Pelangi & Sri Tebrau)

Bangkok Spa is slightly pricier than the ones listed previously, and unlike QS Reflexology, prices at their two outlets at Taman Sri Tebrau and Taman Pelangi are the same.

Judging from their name (and the fact that they have over 100 therapists from Thailand), it’s no surprise that they specialise in traditional Thai full body massages.

Prices for Thai massages start at $20.40 / RM62 for one hour, and go up to $47.10/RM143 for 150 minutes. You can also request for body scrubs and gua sha (scraping).

If you fancy a pampering treatment, you can consider the basic spa package. For $32.90/RM100, you get a foot massage (1 hour), jacuzzi spa (30 min) and sauna (30 min). There are 10 spa packages in total ($32.90 / RM100 to $75.30 / RM229)

Price (60 min) Price (90 min) Price (120 min)
Foot RM62 RM93
Traditional Thai full body massage RM62 RM93 RM118
Aromatherapy full body massage RM85 RM117 RM159

Address:

8, 58A, 58B, 60, 60A, 60B, 62, 62A, 62B, Jalan Abiad, Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru 80400

171, 171A, 173, 173A, 175, 175A, 177, 177A, Jalan Perisai, Taman Sri Tebrau, Johor Bahru 80050

Thai Odyssey (City Square, KSL City, Paradigm Mall & More)

Thai Odyssey is the most expensive of the lot, but that’s because it’s the biggest chain of massage parlours—they have outlets not just in various regions of Malaysia, but in Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and China as well.

Although they may be pricier than the rest, prices are still cheaper than in Singapore. A 30-minute foot massage will cost you just $22/RM66.80 and a one-hour Thai massage will set you back $41.20/RM125.10.

Price (30 min) Price (45 min) Price (60 min)
Foot RM66.80 RM77.40 RM82.70
Half body RM66.80
Price (60 min) Price (90 min) Price (120 min)
Traditional Thai full body massage RM125.10 RM146.30 RM178.10
Thai aromatherapy full body massage RM146.30 RM188.70 RM220.50

The prices stated above include the 6% SST, and are for all Malaysia outlets except gateway@klia2, Awana Skyway Station, Suria KLCC (3rd & 4th Floor), Tasik Villa International Resort and SkyAvenue (Genting Highlands). Those are slightly more expensive—you can check out the full price list on the official website.

Address:

Thai Odyssey has 8 outlets in Johor alone, including at popular malls like JB City Square, KSL City, Paradigm Mall JB, Holiday Villa and Komtar JBCC. For the full address, check here: Thai Odyssey Johor outlets.
