My 2015 resolution is to go out for lunch everyday. (I used to stay in to clear my work during lunch which I feel that it's draining to my body.)

So far so good, haven't been staying in for lunch yay! But I was still feeling so tired and mentally drained after a day's work. Or I should put it this way, 3 days rest is just enough to cover a day at work's tiredness. Oh wells, I can never change the amount of work, it just keeps piling up, so badly that I couldn't sleep well at night, I wake up every hourly thinking its time for work. It's affecting me badly because I became moody, all I tell K is "I'm very tired", when booking air tickets, I unknowingly put a wrong spelling. *horror*

Then I found this place - Huang Ah Ma is located on Mosque street, on the first floor of Porcelain Hotel, you will never miss it. When I saw "24 hours", I was thinking how cool to be doing facial in the middle of the night! After that I actually come to realise that in facial/massage term, 24 hours means till 3am.

Stepping in to the premises, it was dimly lighted - the soothing kind of dim, makes me want to take a hot bath and go to bed. So comfortable. We started off with Yvette introducing Huang Ah Ma to us and also the importance of sleep and rest.

Huang Ah Ma, the Oriental Spa Chamber, is proud to introduce Singapore’s first-ever late-night spa and facial regimen that can help you achieve good health. The one-of-a-kind Imperial Night Beauty Secret Spa and Facial promises to help one fully relax after a long day at work, help with insomnia, and aid in promoting good health at the same time. The routine centres around the introduction of special herb blends and crafted massage techniques to enhance cell recovery and rejuvenation, which works best at night. The late-night spa and facial routine starts with a foot spa, inspired by a simple but powerful therapy: the bath routine of the Yao Tribe women. The Yao tribe can be found in the mountainous terrains of southwest and south China, and the women are known to lead lives that are free from sickness and ailments. Possessing a strong constitution, the Yao women can go about their daily activities immediately after giving birth! Their secret to longevity and great health lies in their unique bath concoction made of natural herbs. Thewomen bathe and soak their feet in the blend of herbs every day. The herbs are speranskia, acacia, turmeric and a mix of rare Yunnan herbs. These herbs help with problems such as insomnia. The herbs open pores; in turn the skin can reap the full medicinal benefits of the herbs. They also aid in enhancing blood circulation and overall well-being. The Yao bath can also accelerate sweating —which enables you to expel the toxins in your body.

Now, at Huang Ah Ma, you can enjoy the health benefits of this concoction of herbs, and more.

The eight-step relaxing spa and facial regimen includes the following:

2) Back Massage to help relax the body

3) Artemisia Herbs (艾草) Detox and Ear Candling: Artemisia herbs are placed on the navel, helping you to relax. This step will also detox and clear the meridian. When your body pores are open and the 12 meridian blockages are cleared, harmful materials can be expelled. The multitude of benefits includes skin nourishment, relief of itching as well as prevention and curing of skin and gynaecological diseases. The step will also improve the micro-circulation system, digestion and alleviate problems like fatigue and muscle pain.
