While my wife was shopping for some school supplies earlier at the Mall of Asia, I decided to have a foot and back massage at a foot spa named Foot For The Gods. Foot For The Gods is located at the south wing of the mall where the department store is also located. The spa offers a relaxing experience, from the classical music they are playing, comfortable seats and the massage itself. They can accomodate 10 persons at a time. The cost for a foot and back massage is Php480.00 but they charged me only Php380.00 earlier as part of their weekly promo. I will definitely go back to this place, recommended.
