Review: Nuat Thai in Perea St. Makati

Nuat Thai in Perea St. Makati is a simple spot that gives quality service.

I tried their express massage via their therapist Yubie. She sounds like a newbie but she is a strong woman.

Physically strong because he can lift your full body with her massage. She gives a nice moderate pressure and control. She gives a relaxing stretch that makes me wanna try their full Thai massage. I will definitely go back to this place to get a relaxing massage.

Thank you Nuat Thai in Perea Street.

Is Hard Massage good?

Soft or Hard?

'Hard' is the answer of majority to this question. But is Hard Massage really beneficial?

Did you know that it can injure a person's body part.

Massage has major and minor benefits, especially pleasure and relaxation.

Technically Hard Massage hurts right?

What do you think?

While many people feels a pleasure in this deep pressure massage there are studies that pain tolerance is bad.

A spa owner in Mandaluyong once told that hard massage gives more stress than relaxation. It is not recommended to give your body a hard painful massage. Even if its a great feeling, the truth is the pain is slowly giving you torture. 

Try Angkor Spa in Mandaluyong and tell us about your experience.

Safety reminders when using Sauna

Sauna costs around 250 to 500 pesos in Manila area. Massage customers avails sauna services because it has a lot of good benefits. 

The average usage of Sauna is until 15 minutes. It is a must to drink water after using a sauna to re-hydrate.

Despite rumours that it is has a bad effect sauna is still a best way to produce sweat.

When I had a cough last week and felt having severe fever, I tried going to a spa where they have a sauna inside.

Thanks to Authentic Thai Spa for having a very well maintained sauna bath.

My fever was gone and I felt so good after.

Just remember these few safety reminders when going to SAUNA.

  • Stay in no more than 15–20 minutes.
  • Cool down gradually afterward.
  • Drink two to four glasses of cool water after each sauna.
  • Don’t take a sauna when you are very ill

Should PNoy Run Again?

According to Article VII, Section 1, of the 1987 Constitution vests executive power to the President of the Philippines, who functions as the head of state, head of government, and commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

The President of the Philippines (chief executive) exercises control over all the executive departments, bureaus, and offices.

The President is elected by direct vote by the people for a term of six years.

And he may only serve for one term, and is ineligible for re-election. The term of the President of the Philippines starts at noon of the 30th day of June after an election is held.

But President Benigno Aquino said lately that he is now open to the idea of a possible term extension.

In an interview broadcast on TV5 on Wednesday, the President admitted thinking about amending the Constitution.

He will be a President again. But why?

Some reasons why it is questionable.

1. He can't resolve the problem of corruption. The rich becomes rich but the poor people remains suffering. During his term, corruption increases and the prices of oil, mga bilihin(comsumer goods) also increases.

2.  Lack of Employment. To finish school, to find someone to love, to start a family, to set up and grow a business or advance in their careers, and to live peaceful lives is everybody's dream. Hardworkers are not well compensated. Wage earners are exploited. Unemployment rate increase. 

3. Poverty rate is high. Plus the crime rate is high. Slow judiciary system.

On May 9, 2013, a shooting incident took place involving patrolling personnel of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) on board BFAR MCS-3001 and a Taiwanese fishing vessel at Balintang Channel near the Batanes group of islands. The incident resulted in the death of a Taiwanese fisherman.

4. Traffic is forever. Specially during Mondays and rush hours. Maybe President Aquino failed to appoint personnels in-charge for transportation problems. Adding to that is the poor management of MRT3.

5. It was the year of Pork Barrel Scam. Politicians became more wealthy, Corruption in the government were hidden. He was also involved in DAP issue. They use National Treasury as their personal investment. So why not just after his term, he gives chance to others who are more deserving to lead the Philippines.

On a note, the idea of a term extension for the President was first proposed by some administration supporters in social networking sites, few days after his State of the Nation Address on July. In fact there is a facebook page dedicated to gain followers on that campaign/

Maybe it's time to give chance to others who are more deserving to lead the Philippines.

The oil price spiked during his term. 

On a note, the SWS noted the Aquino administration scored a "very bad" -51 rating for "resolving the Maguindanao massacre case with justice," below the "poor" -26 in March 2013.

We can ask ourselves, why PNoy's intention of extending him term for another six years should not push?

Spa near MRT

I would like to recommend a spa near an MRT station, non other than the Pahulay Spa in MRT Ayala.

I've been here many times getting random therapists, but they never fail to give great satisfaction.

I tried 4-5 different female therapists at Pahulay, she never fails to give a good relaxing 30 minute massage.
I strongly recommend Pahulay to those in a hurry but needs to get a relaxing massage.

It is also good for those who can only afford a 300 worth of body massage.

Every person who passes by MRT Ayala will surely see Pahulay Spa.

If problems occur, try out a spa!

Problems about MRT  
Long lines during morning and evening

Just a few months ago, many were complaining about the long lines and many hours of waiting. It’s the same scenario after working hours.

Being inside the MRT is a suffering condition. It’s like youre inside a sardines can as many people say. But you have no choice but to ride because you are already late to work.

MRT-3’s original capacity is 350,000 passengers per day, but more than 500,000 people ride every day.

Problems with operating system

In news published in ABS CBN, a railway expert said their facilities are poorly maintained and the software technologies used to operate the trains by remote control are already obsolete.

Rene Santiago, a civil engineer, says the MRT is apparently still using the same operating system since it started in 2003. Taken from:

Despite the warning of the authorities, there still reports that many MRT passengers has been victimized by pickpockets.

One of their modus operandi is stealing someones cellphone while the owner is listening to a music via  earphones. When the owner notices his phone is gone, pickpockets will tell that the thief went out already.

The tendency of the owner is to go out and check as well. Until he realizes that the voice who told him to go out was the real thief.

There are many problems to encounter in riding the MRT, now that government is buying the train company.

The Government could have avoided all the current and potential legal hassles in this MRT3 capacity expansion project had DOTC only abided by the 1999 BLT agreement and allowed MRTC to do its job of choosing the M&O contractor for this EDSA rail line.

What do you think will happen now that government wants to take over MRT 3 within 3rd quarter of 2014? 

Has it worsened for MRT-3 commuters?

Ayu Thai in Bayani Road Taguig

I have been a regular customer of Ayu Thai Spa in Bayani Road Taguig since they started in the business a year ago.

It's just a few steps away from home so its really a perfect place to go after doing my jog and yoga activities on weekends.

I often choose the combination of swedish and shiatsu for only 250 pesos.

Last Sunday, it was my first time to experience the massage of their therapist Jasmine. I thought she was new but she said she has been a year old in this spa along Taguig area.

She puts hard pressure but with control. I felt a little pain at first but as she continues it becomes a little bit lighter. I think that she has the power to feel if the client is feeling pain or not.

When I return to this spa, I will surely look for her.

Ayu Thai Body and Foot Massage is located along Bayani Road Taguig near places are Jollibee, Chowking, Equator and David's Salon.

The best time to go here is in between lunchtime and dinner.

How Acupuncture Heals

After my visit at Soneva Spa in Tomas Morato last week I had a wonderful experience at Thai Raksa Spa in Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong.

Acupuncture is ideal for people with bad condition while it can boost the immune system for those who have good condition.

In my journey to exploring different spas in Manila I have found a healing place that offers Thai massage, reiki and acupuncture.

I’ve got so much learnings and epiphanies during my visit.

I’d like to share the good things acupuncture can do both for good and bad condition.

The Good
I have been planning to try acupuncture for long time but I guess it was really not the time until I have visited Thai Raksa Healing Spa on their first year anniversary in the business on June 28, 2014.

I’ve met the very kind owners, accommodating therapists and the whole team were so amazing.

I tried the acupuncture through the aid of their acupuncturist Kuya Willy. So he asked me what do I feel bad about my body, what I eat and what I do. I said everything - that I don’t eat meat and I exercise regularly.

So he told me to lie down on a massage bed and he injected a total of 14 needles around my body. Head, neck, arms, feet and other body parts. Being an example of a person with a good condition, the effect will boost my entire immune system.

According to Kuya Willy whenever I feel that I am going to get sick, a session of acupuncture can help me not to get sick. So isn’t that Amazing!

The Bad
What if I have a bad condition?

A friend of mine has laryngitis and he gets a session of acupuncture, Kuya Willy says it will help him heal but it will take like 10-14 sessions.

How about a person with HIV? It will take more longer sessions to heal.

The Ugly
Many people are afraid of needles. When they hear of acupuncture the first thing that comes to their mind is ‘Oh, does it hurt isn’t it?’

As far as experiencing it, it does not really hurt you. The needles are so tiny and you wouldn’t feel that it is being injected to your body.

It is not painful at all, there is a little bit of numbness for a while but it will make you feel very relaxed.

In China, acupuncture is used in treating different kinds of cancer.

Review: Soneva Spa

On Monday after dinner with PBNet and Mini Cooper folks I went to Soneva Spa to try out their Hot Stone Massage. 

I usually choose a combination massage whenever I go to a spa but this time it was different, it's an interesting kind of massage and the way I see it in pictures I think there is something that I should try about these stones.

Thanks for a fairy godmother for introducing me to Soneva, a spa in Tomas Morato which is a stairway to heaven. Good for me because I woke up in the morning with a mild pain at the right part of my back.

My massage
My first time to try a stone massage in my whole adventure of exploring different spas along Manila. In Soneva Spa, it's called Hot Stone Massage, and from the word itself the therapist rubs hot stones to one's body.

I met this female therapist who has been working in Soneva since 2006, her name is Nean and she' s in her early 30's. We had this funny rapport before the start of the massage.

Me: Anong name mo ate? 
Therapist: Nean po
Me: Saan ang province mo?
Therapist: Sa Capiz po
Me: OMG! Scary naman :-)
Therapist: Hindi naman po :-)

The Service
Very recommendable. Out of my many experiences in going to spa, it is rare to find a therapist who's expert in giving a total body relief. I am adding Nean of Soneva Spa to my list of recommended therapists. Because she knows to put the right amount of pressure into one's body and she does not need to ask 'Soft or Hard?'

That amount of pressure
The way she puts body pressure is impressive, she does in a very slow manner until it reaches the right amount then that's the time she asks if it is okay or needs to decrease the amount of pressure. Her hands are adaptable, I have body parts that are pasmado but the sweat was gone after she presses the pressure point. She is good in removing a back-pain without telling that feeling to her. She's like a psychic who knows what a patient feels inside.

The Price
Hot Stone Massage 1 hr - 807, 1.5 hr - 967
True that it's pricy for a massage but it's really a quality service. And when your goal is to get rid of your bodypain you've come to the right place.

The Oil
They have different scents, all organic natural oil: Nirvana, Terajana, Hadriyana and Himayana. My therapist used Nirvana.

*I am not sure if you have the option to choose from them or there is none. But guaranteed all are organic.

My Verdict:
Ratings: 4.5/5
Lobby Area: Feel at home and it's like a cafe
CR:  Enough Space
Shower: Functional Hot and Cold

Massage Room: Very comfortable
Bed: The size is right
Linen: very clean and it smells good
Locker: Yes
Towel: medyo luma na but still ok
Robe: soft and smooth
Therapist: very good service

The good thing about their locker is placed beside the bed so you can just leave your things and shoes there and be confident about it's safety.

Hot Towel: None
Dry Sauna: None
Parking: Yes it can accommodate cars but shares with other customers.
Home Service: None
Free Wi-Fi: Yes and its fast
Socket: Yes and secured
Masseur Type: Female only
Signature: Signature Soneva
Extra Service: None

My Overall Experience: Very Satisfied! I shall return to avail the Top 3 recommended massage in Soneva Spa

A Room Service Story

A guy's confession during his vacation in Boracay when he experiences a female therapist and that something happened to them.

'Natry ko narin yung extra service before sa boracay. Wild naman yung girl nun kaya may nangyari sa amin

700 yung masahe then something happened kaya 1500 na ang binigay ko.

Room service yun na massage eh nadala ako. I told u, madali akong madala siguro dahil sa stress ng work.'

Base from a story of an anonymous friend. Itago na lang natin siya sa pangalang Milano.

What makes a good massage

We have asked around a group of those who work on and offline what gives them a good massage.

Massage gives heavenly pleasure when you hear these two keywords from them: relax and refresh.

Here's a list of the first few answers we got from male audience:
  • Yung relaxing, di gaano mabigat.
  • You are refreshed after, because there are some that are painful.
  • I don't know, hindi ako laging nagpapamassage eh.
  • Relaxation, comfort, to relieve stress *tip: if you are looking for a massage I recommend Wensha located at Pasay near Moa (via Ramil)
  • Good massage?hmm, if it relaxes your muscles and soothes most of your body pain
  • The sense of touch
  • If a person is tired and stress out. that's the perfect time to do have a massage

How to deal with backpain

Back pain becomes hell when you can't be absent at work.

Have you ever wondered why do you get back pain at all?

It's hard to work and live right?

Agh, pain comes from work. Hard-work causes back-pain, wrong posture add more of the pain.

In dealing with this kind of pain most people rely on massage, a friend says she will have to see a therapist after work

"Oh my backpain hurts, I need to go Nuat Thai spa"
