Foot Spas are on every block If you travel off the strip in certain areas of Las Vegas. These aren’t your garden variety seedy Asian massage parlors, you know the ones where the “ending is better than the beginning.” Maybe I’ll do a report on that some day but first y’all will have to put a little something in the Paypal account for bail. Ok, back to Foot heaven. Actually, I lie, Foot Spas are a very inaccurate term for what they really do for the hour long session(mind out of the gutter, please!). The Best one in Las Vegas is Bali Foot Spa.

The Big Entrance to Bali Foot Spa
You walk in to find a very nice reception area and you are greeted by a man. He asks how long you want. I chose an hour, it was $20, plus tip at the end. Imagine that $20, for an hour long massage. It gets better. You are escorted to a room, sometimes communal, sometimes private. Doesn’t matter cause your clothes stay on the whole time, only thing that comes off is the socks and shoes. So you sit in a dimly lit room, mine was private and you take off your socks and shoes. The “massage table” is more like a recliner chair that stretches out, something I never saw before. Talk about that later.
So in comes a little Asian girl and she sets down a bucket of war, it is lined with a bag for sanitary reasons and it is filled with very warm water and they put in herbal tea. Boom, you put your feet in and OMG, its amazing. Soothing new age music, the dim lights, all put you in an instant state of relaxation. So, my Bali Foot Spa “therapist” asks me, “Hard or Soft?” as she walks behind me. Now this girl was maybe 4’11” and 95 lbs so I said, (ok, everyone out-loud at once) “hard please.” So she starts kneading my shoulders and neck for the next ten minutes like I killed her dog. OMG, this girl was so strong it was scary, had she not asked, I would have asked her to lighten up but when I said “hard please” I did my best John Wayne manly impression so there was no turning back.
Rub my head for luck
She finishes my shoulders and my neck area and then starts on a ten minute scalp massage, softer, thank God, and I fall asleep. I don’t know what it is about a scalp massage but I can’t help but falling asleep. I woke up realizing that she stopped on the scalp and had my feet out of the bucket and was giving me the signature Bali Foot Spa foot massage that I thought only a wife could do. OMG!! She rolled up my pants legs to the knee and did my calves and ankles as well. Absolutely freaking amazing! Lost track of time and thinking she finished because she said stand up. I stood up and reached for my shoes. She said, “Not done, fix chair”. She hit this hidden button and the back of the chair went down flat, the leg cushion abutted the other side and it was a long bed. She then said, “lie on stomach and take off shirt”(that’s optional) but I wasn’t passing that up for a second, who am I to argue. No Way!! Off came the shirt.
The Money Shot
Fooled ya again..for the third time, please get your mind out of the gutter, it’s not one of those places. I laid down and for the next 20 minutes, she pounded me like I was a ball of dough. She kneaded me, punched me, karate chopped my back, rolled her elbows along both sides of my spine, then hopped up on the table and started walking on my back like she was on a surfboard riding the big wave in that Patrick Swayze movie, Point Break. I thought I was at my point to break and wanted to know what our “Safeword” was. It was a roller coaster from pleasure to pain and back so fast I didn’t have the time to say “ow”.
Finally she was done and I was relieved and every muscle in my body was in a combined state of shock and bliss. I left her $10, kinda hard to leave a $4 tip just because it adds up to 20%, if you go, be a sport and tip $10, its worth $30 for the hour easily and they deserve it. You will be sore the next day but it is so worth it. When I find the time, I always head to Bali Foot Spa.
