Serenity brought by The Spa Reflexology + giveaway!

24 October 2013

As I have written numerous times before already, work has gotten more stressful lately because of all the reports I need to complete. I'm not complaining though as I know it's a good problem to have. Nonetheless I longed for even just a few hours to recharge and make sure the machine's well oiled, so to speak. Last Thursday after work, I went straight to The Spa Wellness in TriNoma for some much needed pampering.

I always have my haircuts done at the salon beside it but it was actually my first time to visit The Spa Wellness. I was greeted warmly by the staff upon entering and I immediately felt relaxed. Maybe it was because of the interiors, or the smell, or the low lighting, or the ambient music. Maybe it was everything combined. I'm not really sure, but I appreciated that sense of calmness a lot.

I was booked to have The Spa Reflexology that day, a 60-minute head-to-toe massage that combines three Asian techniques – Japanese Shiatsu, Thai Massage and Chinese Reflexology. I know I needed that because my back had been aching for a couple of weeks prior, and my friend Rica even pointed out the many knots on my back.

Before my session, The Spa's Marketing Associate Michelle Brillantes gave me a tour around the place first. Judging from the front facade, you would think they occupy just a small space. I was pleasantly surprised that there are a lot of rooms and amenities inside!

The Spa also owns barre3 which is a combination of ballet, yoga, and Pilates. Since I practice yoga, I got interested with this "hybrid". I promise to try a session soon.

barre3 is currently available at The Spa Wellness branches in Alabang, Eastwood, The Fort, Rockwell, Shangri-La, TriNoma and soon-to-open in Promenade.

After the tour, I was led back to my massage room.

The Spa Reflexology is also great for sparties since you won't have to be naked during the massage. Also, since it's a 60-minute session only, this is perfect for those who need a quick breather but are always on-the-go. But since I was in no rush and I didn't have any friends with me that day, I was thankful that I got to have the room to myself.

After soaking my feet in a pail of warm water, my therapist Jeany also put a warm pillow behind my back. She then proceeded to massage my feet and calves first, then my head, and my arms. I panicked a bit when I thought she won't give me a back massage since that was the part I was looking forward to letting go of stress the most, so I was relieved when she asked me to lie face-down. It was pure 60 minutes of abandon. With every touch and every knead, I felt my muscles yield and relax. I am very ticklish (emphasis on very) so to be honest I am a little scared that massages won't work on me, but Jeany was great. I wish I have a Jeany at my beck and call all the time LOL.

At P600 only per session, it is one luxury I can definitely afford to give myself at least once a month. With all the stress I deal with on a daily basis at work, during the commute to and from home, and life in general, it is a most welcome treat. More enriching than just another shoe or bag purchase, right?

Add massages to my monthly budget? Done and done.

The Spa Reflexology is available at The Spa Wellness in Alabang, Greenbelt, Shangri-la and Trinoma. For more info, visit
