A different kind of massage

Spada Massage in pasay

It has been a month since I had a massage at Spada Cubao.

I had the pleasure to visit another Spada branch this time in Pasay.

The location is near Gil Puyat LRT station, it's dark and you can see the therapists hanging outside.

I got a Blossom 3 package that includes A whole body massage, foot refles and body wash. The therapist they gave me was named Cauro, a chubby more than 25 female and has a curly hair.

The rooms in Spada Pasay is much bigger that in Cubao. The beddings are much bigger but in this branch they've got no lockers. The same towels are very dirty. They've got small bathroom.

The services are the same.

My Experience:

I had a great satisfaction with the massage the therapist was expert in giving a good massage. Now there are so many thing I didn't like about her.

During that night she has a cough, I didn'r have a choice but to accept it. But she when she was coughing from time to time which is a big time off for me.

Second she is such a cheater when it comes to timekeeping. So better time yourself and syncronize it with her just to make sure you are getting what you are paying for.

Third, she is very insisting that you gave her 1000 for an extra service. She is not going to hold your bird until you will not confirm that you will paying her price.

She was the second time with that same attitude.


If you are looking for best male therapists in Spada Pasay

look for Joseph, Aljur, Jason or Reagan their schedule is 11 PM onwards.

If you are looking for best female therapist look for Michelle or Roxanne, their duties are from 5 PM onwards.

If it is your first time in Spada the best recommended massage are Linggam 1,200 for 1 hr and 15 minutes.

If you want more sensual then you can choose Linggam with body wash which costs 1,250 for 1 hr and 40 minutes.

My Verdict:

A Sad Face on Happy Endings

I’m not a fan of emoticons on chats or texts. But right now, I think I want to put a sad face on spa happy endings. Happy endings are acts performed by masseuses that give a sexual release. I frown upon happy endings in spas because it creates misconceptions towards legitimate spas, the therapists and frequent spa goers. Now people think that all spas are “spakols”. A “Spakol” is a spa which offers sexual services.
People also think that all therapists are prostitutes and all massage addicts are perverts. In fact, there are two incidents which show the bad effects of these misconceptions.
Here’s an incident of misconceptions. I swear I cannot make this up. This happened for real. A therapist who works at a legitimate spa had a customer who assumes it’s a “spakol”. That customer asked her for something extra but she respectfully declined.
During the heat of the moment, the customer touched himself and asked her to grab his part where the party happens but she said no. Later that night, while on her way home, the creepy customer waited for her at the exit and asked her out. Once again, she declined.
She boarded a bus so she can move away from the horny customer. But while on the road, she looked at the bus window and found the creepy guy trailing her. She was so frightened, luckily nothing bad happened and she reached home safe.
Here’s another case of misconceptions. Recently, a friend from Singapore visited me. After coming from a long trip, she asked me if we could get a massage together. “Sure. In fact, I know a place nearby that offers superb massage” I said. “Oh. Is that a spakol?” she asked with a straight face. I said no of course.
But she asked me again, “Are you sure?” I said no again. Luckily I was able to convince her with the second no. However, our conversation made me wonder do people really think all spas are spakols? Does she really have to ask me twice? I may have a tough guy exterior but I have feelings too. In fact, I felt offended when she asked me if it was a spakol.
I enlightened her and erased her misconceptions about spas when I took her to Sawasdee-Thai-Massage. It’s a legitimate spa which offers top notch massage without sexual services. Their therapists are all professionals.
I’m not saying they are nuns or robots. They are actually fun and friendly. You can talk to them about anything. But they just don’t put themselves on sexual activities while performing work. We had a great time there and we left the place with huge smiles on our faces. It’s definitely recommended for people who want a real massage and relaxation.
I believe spas with happy endings should stop calling themselves spas to avoid misconceptions. Until they do that, I guess the sad face will stay there for awhile.

My Quest in Finding the Best Spa in Metro Manila

The Spa Experience

Most of us are preoccupied with work and other duties that we rarely have a chance to schedule an alone time and pamper ourselves. Needing a few hours of relaxation and an escape out of my busy schedule, I often find myself in a spa, looking forward to a much-needed massage.

However, after postponing my visit for quite some time, I suddenly had the urge to go out and treat myself to the best spa in Manila. A few of my friends are raving about The Spa’s great services so I decided to swing by their place and see for myself what the fuss is about. 

When I arrived at around 4 pm, I hurriedly checked on their wide selection of services. I came here for a single purpose – to get a massage in Manila. Instead, I decided to push through with the package, thinking that I truly deserve an entire afternoon of pampering and relaxation. Yes, it was expensive, but it felt amazingly good!

Apparently, the package I chose was supposed to be done in their Premiere Villa, which is to die for! So, I enthusiastically followed the attendant to my villa and enjoyed a full 30-minute sauna and Jacuzzi use while they prep the room.

After which, The Spa Rejuvenation scrub was next on the list. With the villa, sauna, Jacuzzi, plus the scrub, I actually felt that I got the most out of my money’s worth. But we’re not done yet. My most awaited part of the package is up next. 

For my massage, I opted to go with a combination of Swedish and Shiatsu. It was by far the best massage in Manila I’ve had.

As I leave the building, I totally feel like a different person. All the stresses of the entire week were totally forgotten and I was eager to welcome the new week with a fresh start. by kabangeles04
