I can’t stress enough how much I love getting massages. I’m a frequent visitor of The Spa, and recently, I was treated yet again to a pampering session that really focused on restoring and rejuvenating my body.
When it comes to any pampering session, I’m a little closed-minded. I stick to ones I’ve already tried—like their Traditional Hilot massage. But the Signature Body Care opened my eyes to the many other services that The Spa has to offer, and it convinced me that it’s something I should go for once in a while.
It’s a combination of a body scrub and a body massage. At the start of your session, the receptionist will make you choose from a list of scrubs that they offer. Being the coffee fan that I am, I chose the Coffee Rub—which uses Batangas coffee and energizes tired, sluggish skin, jumpstarts circulation, and helps with cell metabolism. Other scrubs you can choose from are Crystalline Skin Body Treatment, Toning Bamboo Revival, Red Wine Sparkler, and Sea Salt Body Scrub.
As soon as I was led to my private suite, I was asked to take a hot bubble bath before my scrub started. The scrub is rough and a little sand-like, but it smelled divine! I couldn’t choose which scent I favored more: the Coffee Rub or the signature peppermint scent of The Spa’s.
After the scrub, another therapist arrived and began a relaxing full-body massage. This went on for sixty minutes, before my pampering session finally ended. What’s great about having a private suite is that you have the entire place to yourself, and you really feel at home. I took my sweet time getting ready, and enjoyed cups of Ginger Brew.
The Spa has always been one of my favorite places in the city, and nobody pampers the body as good as they do. After the scrub, my skin felt so soft and supple!
