Review: Asian Massage Ortigas

A Massage That Calms the Whole Nation
One afternoon I was driving along EDSA with my Ferrari going to my supermodel girlfriend’s house while thinking about my six digit pay check coming by the end of the month.
Okay. I’m kidding. I just made that up. I don’t have a Ferrari. I’m just a 31-year old man who lives with my parents and works at a Filipino news company. Also, my girlfriend is just average (Honey if you’re reading this I’m very sorry. Please don’t leave me).

I’m just so stressed after beating several deadlines. Right now I’m craving for a nice spa treatment from Asian Massage. So, if you’re from Manila like me, who works non-stop just to earn a living, you will want to have a nice massage to reward yourself from hard work.

Asian Massage is a 24-hours spa with home services. They offer massage techniques that can calm the nation down. In fact their massage therapy has a lot of health benefits.

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.

What Does Wensha Means?

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.
