No Reservations, 2008
As seen on his program No Reservations in 2008, Tony “visits Singapore where he meets Master Soon, practitioner of the ancient art of reflexology. Simply by kneading Bourdain’s feet, Master Soon diagnoses a litany of maladies. ‘You better be careful your kidney … some stone already … your cholesterol is 270 … little high … your large intestine … be careful with pas motion … you feel very hot … don’t drink too much alcohol … no spicy food … cool down … cool down.’ … “After the therapeutic foot massage, Bourdain says he feels great.” and goes on to counterdict Master Soon’s advice.

The Layover, 2011
As seen on his program The Layover in 2011, Tony spends part of his 24 hours in Singapore at Changi Airport. “Tony takes a dip in the airport's rooftop pool and gets a massage at Fish Spa & Reflexology.”

The Fish Spa & Reflexology, is described in Things to do at Singapore's Airport: Aside from the free OSIM leg massage thingies scattered about the airport, tired feet and aching shoulders can also make their way to the Fish Spa (Terminal One, near Gate D41; Tel: +65 6542 8308) for a quick massage: 20 minutes of foot reflexology, 20 minutes of shoulder kneading, and endless dipping into a pool of Turkish fish that nibble at dead skin on the feet. Feels better than it sounds.”
