A Spa For You

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.
On 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.

CHI offers treatments based on Chinese and native Philippines healing concepts, including the traditional Hilot massage.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, ch’i or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that ch’i must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow.

Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages. Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.

What is a chiropractic treatment?

Wikipedia says chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health.
It is a therapy which involves manipulation of the spine.
Joint pains, stiffness, injuries and scoliosis are among the usual case that a chiropractor cures. When the spine is properly aligned it will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
When spine is manipulated by a chiropractor, it restores mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.
