My Foot Reflexology started out in a humble 250 sf shop in Midpoint Orchard with only 4 therapists. The concept was to provide a place for relaxation, fully serviced by the handicapped. When My Foot started its operations in 1996, we started training and employing the visually impaired from the local community. My Foot felt strongly that they made very good therapists despite their disabilities. Besides, the visually impaired were also very well suited for customer service positions because of their kind and friendly temperament.
Within a month of our operation, My Foot Reflexology became extremely popular with various media including the Straits Times, Channel 5, Channel 8 ( City Beat ), covering our story. It was a first of its kind because never before had the visually-impaired been offered front-line customer serving positions in the Orchard Road retail environment.
Today, My Foot Reflexology trains and employs individuals with other disabilities including the deaf-mutes, physically handicapped, mentally challenged, as well as retrenched older workers with very little skills and education.
