Horrible Wensha Eperience

When a ventosa massage from Wensha turns into a disaster.

May this serve as a warning to all.

from facebook status of  Emerson G. Lim

To end the holiday, i and my friends decided to pamper ourselves at Wensha Spa Timog. We checked in at around 6pm and i availed of their ventosa massage service. The massage was good but after the ventosa service, i felt a burning sensation at my back. I thought it was normal but upon checking on the mirror, i saw blisters, burns and discoloration on my skin. I went down to the receptionist to complain the incident. I was so frustated with what happened but my frustation was intensified by the management's poor knowledge in handling of such situation as they passed me from the massage manager to their senior therapist to the spa manager. Accompanied by their nurse, i initiated to go to Capitol Medical Center ER to seek medical attention. The finding was a 2nd degree burn on my back and first aid was applied. I went back to the spa to file a formal complaint. I wrote this post to warn my friends who are thinking of getting venstosa service at Wensha Spa to reconsider. More than the burn, the frustration and the time wasted was worse. I would not definitely go back again coming from this horrible experience.

Reflexology and Massage

My friend came over complaining about what happened to him in a spa. He said he was lying face down on the massage table while the therapist is doing weird things to him. 

The therapist is pressing different parts of his feet and flexing his body to weird positions. After the session, my ignorant friend felt more relaxed but he just has to complain about the weirdness of the method.

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a health therapy which involves applying pressure on certain areas of the body like the hands, feet and ears. These areas or pressure points are connected to the vital organs of the body. Putting pressure on these areas will help prevent several illnesses, relieves pain, strengthens the immune system and boosts overall health.
Reflexology practitioners believe that reflexology is an alternative cure to several illnesses like depression, diabetes, sinusitis, kidney problems, cardiovascular diseases and sometimes even cancer. However, there is a lack of scientific evidence to support this. 
Everyone can receive a reflexology therapy. However, too much pressure might cause uneasiness to some people.

Pressure Points and Meridians
Reflexology hand and foot maps are created to show how a particular pressure point is connected to different organs through the body meridians. Body meridians are pathways inside our bodies where energy flows. For example, in our hands, the fingertips are connected to the head, brain and sinus. While in our feet, the part just above our heels is connected to the small intestine. Applying pressure to these reflex points through human touch improves the energy flow inside our system.
Reflexology and Massage
Just like massage, reflexology relieves stress, reduces depression and helps in better sleep patterns through physical contact. Despite the similarities, they are actually different from each other. Massage stimulates the muscles through stroking, tapping and kneading. Reflexology on the other hand focuses on applying pressure on the reflex points. Pressure is usually applied by reflexologists using their thumb and index finger.
My friend is just one of those who don’t know how effective reflexology is to our health and wellness. Ever since the ancient times, reflexology has healed a lot of people. It is safe, cheap and works wonders to our overall health.

Does Wensha offer Extra Service?

Is there an extra service at Wensha?
Wensha has been operating for many years and has more that a few branches in Manila now.
It has become a favorite of many enthusiasts because of it's 24 hour service and eat-all-you can set up.
Not known to many, a blogger has posted a bad and good experience upon going to one of it's branch in Antipolo, Rizal.
He says Wensha Spa is corrupt and a secret prostitution den.
There is no confirmation yet that his allegations are all true.

Update: 4 U Spa along Edsa Mandaluyong

4 U Spa along Edsa Mandaluyong is now 24 hours open

This spa targets the gay friendly market of Mandaluyong area wherein there's a lot of call center companies nearby. Majority of therapists here are male and cute.
Yes they offer Es but on a standard reasonable price just like other spas. There are customers here who are 'silahis', and some of them have families but they are afraid to get out of the closet. The amount of darkness in this area is perfect.
Female therapists here does not earn much because they rarely get customers.

Female therapist
I've been here more than three times because I am one of their satisfied customer. My first therapist name is Pinky and I look for her in all my visit. She is a Visayan race more than 30's girl whom I can say gives a quality massage.
Upside: She can locate the parts of the body na may 'lamig' and focus on it. She can produce cracking sounds if that's what you want. She is very good is petrissage. She can ride you if you want.
Downside: She has a fast way of doing massage and does not want to slow it down if you requested for it. She gives a very hard massage unless you tell her to decrease it.

The Place
A couch is provided for waiting, there's free water for drinking and you can read old issues of magazines. They have shower hot and cold with free bath gel.
Upside: Massage table has a hole for facing down position. The room is just enough for the therapist to move around you.
Downside: No aircon but it's not so hot. There is a ceiling fan turned on while you're having a massage, so air goes directly to your body

The Farm at San Benito

Massage to the next level!

My recent visit to “The Farm” at San Benito was great not only that, it’s the most rejuvenating experience I ever had. I and my co-workers agreed to have a little bit of pampering from our stressful job. We arrived at the place at noon time, the staff has the warmest smile for us as we arrived and took us to our designated rooms. As we walked through we are so pumped up and very excited to explore the place because the ambience was overwhelming and surroundings were all conducive to the overall relaxation.
So first stop we go for massage, we we’re offered with lots of choices to choose from so I chose “Aromatherapy” in that said kind of massage they used some extracted oils from flowers and some other particles, it really smells good very aromatic and so conducive for massage. The Actual place where the massage took place looked exquisite, calm and breathe taking. The masseur greeted me and we started the massage, she told me that this kind of massage which is aromatherapy is great reliever of stress and tension, so she started and woooh! Just the right amount of pressure, she was open to any of my suggestion on how I like it to be done, just to make this experience the best ever. It was very soothing it feels like heaven on earth experience.
Indeed, all my tension and stress gone away. The aroma from that oil goes all over the place and the masseur did it very professionally. I have gone to many spa/massage saloons, but this one is remarkably epic, I mean with all the amenities and how good they are in offering their service. The therapy lasted for sixty (60) minutes at a very reasonable price and worth every penny. It feels like it was the most longest and relaxing 60 minutes of my life. After the therapy it feels like my mind was free from any negative thoughts and of course the stress I had from my work was relieved.
The other choices they have for their massage were Reflexology, Relaxation massage, Therapeutic massage, Thai massage, the traditional “Hilot”, and lastly the one which I believe the must try and I am going to have this kind of massage during my next visit, it is the Massage under the stars! Yes you heard it right. It is a very delightful experience wherein you are lying under the stars while being massaged by your therapist.
Well, they say every good thing must have come to an end. The next day me and my co workers leave the farm but with a smiling face and truly satisfied with our stay specially my personal favorite the massage, I would definitely come back soon together with my loved ones. I was sharing the experience with y’all because like me you deserve some pampering, indulge yourself once in a while and free your mind with any stress and start a new day with a free mind.

Easy way of applying self massage In your face

Did you know that you can also give your face a self massage?

Elections has been a stressful week for most of us. Aside from the stress we get from preparations we also get it from the people around us.
Massage helps you relax and improve your mental energy. It can also make you more productive at work. 
You don’t have to take a class to give yourself a proper massage. By just simply learning the basic strokes of rubbing it you can do it by just lifting up the skin, just be gentle but firm.
Here's an Easy way of applying a self massage on our face
1. Clean your face with facial scrub or facial foam and water. You can use the usual products such as Ponds, Nivea, etc.
2. Dry your face with clean soft towel
3. Apply cream all over the face and neck
4. Lightly massage your face at least 5 to 10 mins
upward. Focus massage on areas around the eyes and cheek bones
5. Lightly massage your neck at least 5 mins
Keep on smiling! Because it takes more muscles to frown than to smile.

Review: Suriya Spa

As a massage enthusiast, I’ve visited most of the spas here in Metro Manila and I’ve already tried different massage techniques. However, after reading several great reviews about Suriya Spa, my thirst for high quality spa treatment increased and that urged me to visit the spa.
I went to their branch in Frontera Verde and picked “hot stone massage”. From the moment I entered the room, I’ve never felt so fortunate because I experienced 90 minutes of pure goodness.
Suriya Spa is an exquisite sanctuary for relaxation. It’s an award-winning place for rejuvenation and tranquillity. After bagging several awards in these past few years, the spa continues to provide top-notch massages for everyone’s health and wellness. Suriya Spa has four branches in Metro Manila. They are located in Frontera Verde, Ascott Makati, Intercontinental Manila and Holiday Inn Galleria Manila.
Services If you avail their services, they will give you an Asian style pampering as if you are their emperor. They offer a waterfall of services that can eliminate body pain, stress and depression. They provide relaxing massage techniques that will please you from head to toe. Every stroke revitalizes your entire body.
When having a massage session, all you can hear is the mind-clearing music and the relaxing whispers of their calming ambience. You may also want to share a few laughs with their therapists.
Their therapists are all professionals and well-trained. Their warm attitude and tender hands can remove all the bad energy in you. Furthermore, they don’t act like robots and give you a mechanical massage. Instead, they will connect with you personally and they make sure that you are well taken care of.
Facilities The facilities here are designed to provide optimum relaxation to their customers. All their rooms are spotless because they clean all of them religiously. From the reception to the massage rooms, all areas are spacious and cozy.
Price The prices of their services are not for everyone. Their rates are high because they want them to be congruent with their quality of service. But, they create promos regularly so everyone will have the opportunity to experience their world class services.
Everyone deserves to be treated like kings or queens at least once in their lifetime. Suriya spa is giving everyone a chance to be treated as such. Their services may not be free but you’ll definitely get more than you’ve spent.

What are you waiting for? Go to one of their branches and experience their majestic massage for yourself.
