On the way home, I decided to check out our neighborhood day spa to see if I can possibly get a short full body massage. That would surely put me on a relaxing state...one that I truly needed that day.
Entering Neo Day Spa along Wilson street, I was warmly greeted by the receptionist who walked me through the different treatments available. I wanted it simple and chose the Swedish Aromatheraphy Massage (Php. 780). I was immediately led to my private room (luckily, no one was using the couple's room so I had it all to myself that day). I briefly showered and settled in for my message.
My massage therapist Aida entered and gave me a warm smile. I just told her that I want very light strokes. She nodded and told me to just lie down and relax. I really couldn't remember what happened next as I was quickly transported to la-la-land. Unlike other massages that I've had, despite telling the therapist that I wanted it light and soft, I would end up wincing in pain with every deep hard strokes. I could hardly relax or sleep as I constantly have to remind the therapist to lessen the intensity. Still, I'd end up feeling like a butchered meat at the end of the 60 minute massage.
Not with Aida, I slept like a baby the entire 60 minutes. I just woke up to turn as she worked on my head down to the tips of my toes. It was very relaxing. I made the right choice also in choosing the Wood Aromatherapy Oil which was not very strong.
After 60 minutes, Aida gently woke me up to tell me our session was over. How I wish we can go on forever. I groggily thanked her and realized that my headache was gone.
While the spa is smaller than other day spas around the area, I liked it because its clean, the burning oil was light and it doesn't sting my eyes and the room was pretty spacious. I'm surely going back for more this time with my mom and sister for our regular bonding session.
